It's that time of year again, one of my most looked forward to blog posts of the whole year: my recap of the year of sleeping around! As I've explained and posted about before, I keep a calendar of where I lay my head every night of the year and categorize it in different ways. It is my way to see my year, where I've been and what I've been doing, in numbers. I find a ridiculous amount of interest in it and it helps me answer the question "where do you live?" much more easily.
|Nights At Home||78 (21%)|
|Nights Housesitting||78 (21%)|
|Nights of Travel||209 (57%)|
|Nights in a Car*||25|
|Nights in a Tent||22|
|Nights in a Boat||3|
|Nights in a Hotel||58|
|# of States (other than WA)||6|
|# of Countries (other than US)||9|
|Longest stretch at home||11|
Now that this is my 3rd year of keeping stats, I have some interest data for comparison. For example, I realize that this past year, my housesitting numbers are lower than the last 2 years (by over a month(!)), but my international travel nights are almost triple last year.
I plan on (and am downright giddy about) keeping this borderline-OCD record keeping going for as long as the data stays interesting enough to warrant it. And I've already started looking forward to next August when I get to run the numbers again.
