Maybe you should break down "other" a bit more. As it is i'm suspicious you masturbate for five hours a day.

[–]hairynip 5103 points5104 points  (117 children)

As it is i'm suspicious you masturbate for five hours a day.

Thinking back to when I was in 9th grade... that isn't unreasonable.

[–]Toejamer 2632 points2633 points  (69 children)

thinking back to yesterday... still isn't unreasonable

[–]BizzyM 780 points781 points  (51 children)

On the internet, no one knows that you're in the 9th grade.

Until now.

I'm 82 today and it's still not unreasonable for me

[–]03223 154 points155 points  (5 children)

That's just because it takes you longer than it used to. (Says the 69 year old.)

To be fair it doesn't take long to get to 82 when every day you post is your birthday.

And only 30 mins of procrastination? I call bullshit: there's atleast an hour of procrasturbation in there!

[–]vector_ejector 80 points81 points  (1 child)

What kind of self-respecting 9th grader only procrastinates for 30 minutes!? Those are rookie numbers.

[–]PM_ME_SEX69 45 points46 points  (2 children)

Other is for masturbation.

[–]pay-per-clip 82 points83 points  (0 children)

While he did procrastinate for 30 minutes, you can clearly see that in the end he acted responsibly and was able to masturbate for the full 5 hours.

[–]incraved 22 points23 points  (12 children)

Masturbation is a form of procrastination.

[–]Mackncheeze 63 points64 points  (0 children)

AKA Procrasturbation.

[–]Two2na 40 points41 points  (4 children)

You're confusing masturbation with procrasturbation.

Procrasturbation is a gratifying excuse to postpone getting started on a task.

Masturbation is a blissful self-gratification that occurs when you have no other duties.

Libraries only exist in this day and age to sequester oneself in an environment where procrasturbation is very unlikely to occur.

Source: recent grad

[–]Sintax777 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Plenty of masturbating going on at libraries. Seen some shit myself (both public and school libararies) and have a friend who is a librarian (for whom telling creepy guys to stop masturbating at the computers should be written into his job description).

[–]ath1337 8 points9 points  (1 child)

[–]PBFT 1490 points1491 points  (162 children)

It's funny, I forget how time consuming high school was. You get to college and suddenly getting up at 7:30 is the worst thing in the world, but back in high school I was up at 6 and spent 7+ hours in classes.

[–]HatesRedditors 503 points504 points  (108 children)

You're in the sweet spot of free time that is college. Give it a few more years, it's not that unreasonable to see 9-10 hour days if you include commute times.

Plus no more spring break or summer vacation.

There's nothing to look forward to, you should stay in college as long as you can...

[–]Skolanthropy 323 points324 points  (13 children)

[–]crabwhore 127 points128 points  (40 children)

I personally would rather spent 8 hours at work making money than 8 hours in class/doing school work(depending on your major 8 hrs of school work is accurate)

[–]Chicagoschic 71 points72 points  (31 children)

Agreed. Engineering = shit loads of homework and reading.

[–]penisthightrap_ 45 points46 points  (27 children)

It is a lot of work but honestly it's not as bad as people make it sound. You can still have a social life, but people act like engineers don't get time for friends.

[–]sasquatch_melee 54 points55 points  (26 children)

None of the engineering majors at my college had free time, especially past freshman year. My floor was mostly all engineering majors, with a few aviation guys and me who switched from EE to accounting after having trouble with physics.

My roommate and I were super close friends but I barely saw him Junior year. Free time went to working on the senior design project.

[–]Nodonn226 52 points53 points  (22 children)

Graduated with BS and MS in Aerospace Engineering. I had a lot of free time except for during the final half of my BS senior year and my MS second year. Those times did suck terribly though.

My trick: Doing my homework in a timely fashion, studying a little everyday instead of cramming, and paying attention in class. Also, I found taking notes with a pen & paper helped a lot for getting rid of distractions. I think only my programming/CAD classes really needed a laptop.

I found many of my peers didn't do homework if it wasn't worth credit (do at least some of it) and just surfed facebook in class. They would later wonder how they did so poorly on a test.

EDIT: It probably depends a bit on school and how much course load you're giving yourself. But I'd say for the average Engineering student had a good bit of free time if they manage things correctly.

[–]sasquatch_melee 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I think it depends on the school. There was enough work to keep the sophomore-senior engineering majors busy doing homework every night and weekends at mine.

I was the only business major working at the brand new 2000 seat theater on campus and I was also the only one working more than 5 hours a week there. The rest were engineering majors and most of them worked a shift once or twice a week, I worked at least three days a week and all evening/rental events too. My boss later admitted he hired me over the other 30+ applicants because of my open schedule, but said it worked out because I was one of the hardest workers and he had rental clients asking for me by name for events. Point being, workload was vastly different depending on your major at my school.

[–]heydabop 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Also when you get home from work you don't have this dreaded sense that you should be studying or further doing your homework. I miss college, but there are reasons I didn't continue on to grad school. It's nice being able to buy good beer and eat good food.

[–][deleted] 30 points31 points  (2 children)

At least after the 8 hrs or so of work, you are free to do what you want; no extra homework or study sessions.

At my first job, my supervisor had to explain to me that I could only work on projects during work hours. Blew my fucking mind at the time.

[–]M4xusV4ltr0n 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Haha yeah, exactly!

[–]clown_shoes69 14 points15 points  (10 children)

I agree. It's weird how many post-school adults on reddit seem to be absolutely miserable.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (3 children)

There's a difficult transition to make from the school environment to the "real" world, whether that's high school or college. You start working, where you're reporting (usually) to a manager. You're conscious about your career's future, and things become competitive in an almost negative way.

The biggest change, though, is the social aspect. At school you're surrounded by a constantly changing set of peers who have at least a few things in common with you, but once you get out of the educational world... that doesn't really exist. You've got coworkers, who if you're lucky you might have a few that you vibe with. You've probably got those few friends that stick around after school, but that's really it. You have to create your own life as an adult, and to be frank, it doesn't come without a bit of effort.

It was a difficult year for me once I was totally on my own, in a new city where I only knew a few people. The upside is that most people are generally friendly, and if you get out there and try, you'll meet some cool people.

[–]forknox 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I'm finding this out first hand right now. Daily life is so, so lonely. Forced socialization in school with a diverse (but at the same time, similar) group of people was amazing and I only realised that when I no longer had it.

[–]I_am_Junkinator 29 points30 points  (5 children)

Man, I miss college.

Looking back though, if I ever knew what working life would be like EXACTLY, I wouldn't have been so naive and happy. Ignorance is truly bliss

[–]Pietrangelo27 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I graduate in 5 days and this just made me depressed

[–]Engeneering_probs 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I spent 10 hours + 6 days or more a week. It vastly varies depending on what you do

[–]namer98 10 points11 points  (0 children)

There's nothing to look forward to, you should stay in college as long as you can...

I have plenty of friends who either like, or love, their jobs. Don't work more than 8 hours (in general, special exceptions always happen). Get a decent paycheck (has some savings for emergencies, maybe even a short vacation). Some even have a house/kids.

Without college, this life style would have been far harder to achieve.

[–]st1tchy 8 points9 points  (0 children)

[–]billnyethewifiguy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I went to college, worked full-time, and then went back to college. I'm in a program with people in similar situations. The general consensus is that working is much easier because you can go home after work and not worry about other things. In school, you go home and have to do assignments for hours. And generally there's less thinking involved in working, which makes it easier.

[–]Izzardd314 541 points542 points  (19 children)

I'm in what would be the equivalent of 9th grade in America and I know from experience that 'OTHER' represents playing video games, masturbation, using the internet and going out with friends. As one of the four decreases the other three increase.

[–]Izzardd314 12 points13 points  (1 child)

I'm convinced adults are just teenagers with more responsibility and stress. Common sense and humility when growing up is optional

[–]Nausved 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I don't know, I find my adulthood to involve less responsibility and a LOT less stress than I experienced through my teenage years.

Mind you, I had it a bit rough growing up. I sometimes feel like I'm getting the childhood now that I didn't get to have when I was young.

[–]Redtomkidd 695 points696 points  (16 children)

That’s what the kids are calling these days … “other”? In my day we just called it choking the purple headed yogurt slinger.

[–]PolyhedralCanniBusta 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I mean not a lot of 9th graders would take the time to make something like this. Let alone document there entire day. He might have strict parents, has extreme motivation, or just didn’t give a fuck about keeping track of procrastination.

No homework? In nineth grade, I would typically spend an hour per day on homework, and occasionally more, up to 3 or 4 hours sometimes

Edit: I should clarify I went to school in the US

[–]killtheraven 12 points13 points  (2 children)

As a Brit, we'd often moan about getting a few hours of homework over the weekend.

Am I the only person who is not a fan of this style of visualization? I see these a lot now and I don't see how it's clearer than setting up each branch as a bar.

[–]experts_never_lie 63 points64 points  (2 children)

Part of the problem is that it's popular lately and is being applied where it doesn't really belong. Sankey diagrams are intended for flow analysis, particularly when you have reunification and not just branching. It often represents a conserved quantity. This representation is actually taking advantage of the capabilities of the diagram and it would be harder to capture much of the detail in a bar chart.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I definitely see how it helps when there's branching and unification into different groupings. Thanks.

[–]SirBackspace 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I honestly find that a bar chart would have done this much better. They just don't line up visually on these graphs.

[–]ukkoylijumala 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I think the chart type is fine to show breakdowns.

The issue I see in this case is that they don't go until the end, so you can't just see the parts all lined up on the right side.

There's no reason why "sleep" should not follow through and be on the most right side.

Also, when I first learned about this diagram, I read "Snakey" instead of "Sankey", which made a lot of sense, as the lines look a little like snakes.

[–]Fournote 24 points25 points  (4 children)

I don't miss those years. I had no free time. 7 hours of school per day, 2 hours of marching band practice per day, 6 hours of marching band on Fridays (practice + football game + debrief afterwards), competition on Saturday (all day), work at the grocery store on Sunday. When it's not marching season, replace all the marching band stuff with work. I'm 31 years old with a full-time job and a kid, and I have more free time now than I did back then.

[–]MichyMc 69 points70 points  (39 children)

I'm marrying an American and I live in the States but I still can't get over the fact that high school kids do like 7 or 8 classes in a semester. We did four. Four classes.

It's okay, because you can't learn much in 50 min class.

My high school had 7 classes, but on a rotating AB day schedule, so only 3-4 classes a day at roughly 1.5 hours each

[–]Nuranon 33 points34 points  (12 children)

The classes I had here in Germany in grade 12 (age 18) were:

  • German

  • English

  • Math

  • Sports

  • Chemistry

  • Physics

  • Social Economy

  • Philosophy

  • History

  • Art

  • Informatics

There are differences between the states but in my case you always had to have the first 4, could choose between Philosphy or Religion and Art or Music, could have another or even two addtional languages or like in my case a focus on the sciences (alternatively could have had biology or geography which I only had earlier on). Number of lessons (45min each) varried between 2 and 5/week depending on the course and if you choose it as a focus and would have it in the finals and the total number of lessons added up to a total of around 35 or so, don't remember exactly.

And in year 8-10 there are even more classes, though you have more classes for only 2x45mins per week instead of 4x45. But you write a test in each class, so more tests.

My high school changed how many classes were in a day every 2-3 years. 4/day was best for the students, but harder to fit everyone into the classes they needed. 7 was too many IMO but the school liked it for the middle schoolers bc they got each core class for the whole year, rather than 2 trimesters. I hated it, bc it was more homework to do.

It's worse in rural areas. You end up only having 3 hours a day to eat dinner, do homework, study, then it's back to sleep to repeat hell until you leave town for a city/state university.

[–]predictablePosts 138 points139 points  (12 children)

8 hours of sleep? I guess you showed your parents this chart.

I'll help you break down OTHER

First we'll borrow 120 minutes from sleep, because let's be real, you're watching adult swim.

TV - 150

I know what all the kids are doing these days too

Minecraft - 30
Overwatch - 120

Can't forget

Lookin in the fridge - 15

Since you're on reddit it's easy to assume you never put any time into your hygiene routine but I'll be nice

Personal Hygiene - 20

And we're going to assume you follow 5 animes on a weekly basis so we'll average that out

Crunchyroll - 20

That leaves you with a solid hour for

Masturbation - 60

Go ahead and fix that, and you'll get your A for this assignment.

Satan's work.

[–]SomeoneImportant69 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Only 1 hour for masturbation? You're nutts, let the kid enjoy.

Lookin in the fridge - 15

This one hit me hard

[–]Bossball4OC: 1[S] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

My computer can't run Overwatch let alone play it. The rest, nice.

[–]rui278 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The last one should be

Other - 60

[–]22EnricoPalazzo 72 points73 points  (12 children)

Oh, those were the days. Enjoy that 5 hours of freedom you get a day. At 37 and with 3 kids, my free time is limited to the amount the porcelain throne provides.

[–]BRG820 48 points49 points  (2 children)

And my wife thinks I have stomach issues because I hang out in there so much.

[–]goateguy 7 points8 points  (3 children)

I second that. 29 with 1 kid and taking care of an autistic brother mostly by myself. Bathroom time is best time.

[–]Skolanthropy 20 points21 points  (2 children)

My 2 year old stands there in the bathroom with me...

"Daddy poops!

need paper?

need paper?

need paper?

need paper?

need paper?"


[–]worldalpha_com 12 points13 points  (1 child)

I can only assume you named your kid "Jesús"

[–]Skolanthropy 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Actually her name is FUCK

[–]Tobydog3 7 points8 points  (3 children)

You're classes are only 50 minutes each? Damn I wish my highschool was like that... we had 4 classes a day for 90 min each except for the last class which was 85 min. If I had 50 min classes I think I probably would've been able to focus better, cause the last 20-30 min of class would really start to drag on for me.

[–]SpacePeanut1 6 points7 points  (0 children)

That, my friend, is called block scheduling. It’s what they do in my high school, too. However, one good thing about it is you get two days to do your homework.

[–]Amalar433 31 points32 points  (0 children)

I would love to see of the 350 min of school. A break down of each 50 min class of how much you are actualy learning. Not waiting for "Johny" to turn in his homework or whatever.

[–]Kroonay 22 points23 points  (19 children)

As a non-US citizen, I'm struggling to cope with the fact that people in America learn as much History and Spanish as they do of English and Maths.

[–]GenericTrashyBitch 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Where I am, we require at least one math and English each year but only require two foreign language credits and three history

[–]KeyWest- 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Is there an app or program that keeps making all these easy-to-read designs? I keep seeing similar breakdowns on this sub.
