Sleeping Around 2014-2015

If ever there was a case of data being both boring and exciting at the same time, this is it. Data from my Sleeping Around calendar from the last year both captures my imagination with its simple encapsulation of a life and almost puts me to sleep with its predictability.

First, the predictable stuff: as has been the case for the last 3 or so years, my time comes out almost evenly split between the 3 major categories. Nights spent housesitting changed by less than 2%. The division of travel between its 3 sub categories stayed more or less similar, thought a 9 day trip to Dominican Republic boosted the international numbers. All in all, this year was a lot like last year.

As for the exciting stuff, just analyizing and presenting the data makes me smile. Little differences like a drop in nights in a car or a jump in nights in a hotel reflect little excitements that make this year different than last year.

Additional Stats
Nights in a Car18This number is significantly lower than last year due to Della getting a place in Bellingham so the van not being our primary spot when in town.
Nights in a Tent1This one's significantly lower. the lowest it's ever been. With no Chautauqua and only a day trip to Lopez Juggle Fest, I barely squeezed one night in at a frisbee tourney in Friday Harbor
Nights on a Boat2Nothing quite as exotic as tropical live-aboards in years past. Instead, just a conveient layover spot in Seattle on a friend's moored 33-footer
Nights in a "Hotel"31A full month sleeping in hotels and hostels. This includes a week long work trip to Mt. Rainier, my Wheel of Fortune trip to Hawaii, that DR trip, and various other quick trips. Good thing I didn't have to pay for them all!
Longest Stretch at Home14
# of states (other than WA)8CA, OR, NV, NY, CT, MD, CO, HI

As my database* grows with more years of data, the more I like looking at the trends slowly emerging. Here's what 7 years looks likes.

And, with past years to compare this year to, setting goals for next year is easier. Resolved: I will spend more than 1 night in a tent, and my international travel numbers will go up*. But most of all, I resolve to keep logging the data!
