Another post for chart fans

Brightness, sleep, and wakefulness

Note: ‘Level of Thesis Completion’ is constant.

Author: Milan

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. The middle line is far too sharp-edged. Unpleasant as it can be, near-sleep must be at least somewhat restful.

    As for the bottom line, it does not seem possible to become progressively less wakeful, over the course of successive days. Persistently unproductive, sure.

  2. On 11 February, 2005 I was just preparing to set out on the Arizona Road Trip.

    In 2004, I registered a complaint against my hockey roommates. I was also reading Paradise Lost intensely with Tristan Laing and Meghan Mathieson. I was thinking about the Democratic primaries that eventually led to the Kerry candidacy.

  3. Sometimes, it makes sense to use one day a week to just sleep for as long as you feel you need to.

    Also, avoid caffeine and alcohol. Both screw up your sleep schedule and overall ability to concentrate.

  4. I love xkcd so much. I sent Randall a marriage proposal but he hasn’t gotten back to me.
