I never made my pie chart about my time usage, but I have been paying some attention over the past few days. Yesterday TWO HOURS got sucked away on avclub, slate, facebook, and the like. How does that happen? I was reading Amanda Bynes' Twitter page, for God's sake. Today already I've lost about 45 minutes.
Now, granted, it's summertime and I'm not teaching, so I have a lot of free time. But is this how I want to spend it? In two hours I could've made a lot of headway on that blouse I want to sew - maybe even finished it.
It has to stop. So, I looked around a bit and found something called RescueTime. It's an add-on for Firefox (which means I'll have to use Firefox instead of Safari, which is unfortunate mostly because I made my Safari icon a nice yellow giraffe). It tracks how much time you spend browsing, and on what sites, and shows you reports. We'll see how I like it, and if it helps.
