The Location Experiment

I joked to a friend that I might as well live in Pasadena since I spent half my time there and then thought maybe I’d test that conjecture. I did an experiment for a week where I charted all the time I spent in different cities and made two pie charts, including and not including sleep time. I cut out transit times and cities passed in transit for ease. I posted this on Facebook a month ago, but then thought it would be beneficial to continue also posting these here on my blog. Here are my results.

Time Spent including SleepMap of Time Spent

This experiment probably deserves a redo, seeing the short amount of time I did it. San Marino, a city I visit from time to time was surprisingly cut out. El Monte is rarely visited. The rate of Altadena was skewed higher due to a man I was seeing at the time (but no longer.) Were I to redo it for a month, there would probably be higher rates in Arcadia and San Gabriel, along with a larger diversity of cities. I’ll see if I find the time.
