RATE EACH DAY FOR A MONTH
by:Pox
2013/02/25
THERE IS A CONTEST! RULES AT THE END!

*** This experiment is done. Results:




Have you ever gone to bed at the end of the day and though "Boy, that was some turbo-ass world class bullshit today"? Are you depressed? Do you wonder how shitty your life really is when compared to how you wished each day would go? Well now you can find out! Rate each day according to a constant scale. Maybe this will help you realize that over the course of 30 days, most are great! Or maybe it will make you more depressed because you realize you're a lazy piece of shit. Or maybe you'll have an awesome month just because you want to score better!

Here is the basic idea:



HOW TO SCORE( for me):

Obviously, this depends on your personal goals. Here are mine, to give you an idea:

FOOD : If I ate 500 calories less than I used that day, and it was all healthy food, I get a 10. If I ate 1500 calories over and it's still healthty food, that's a 5. If I ate 1500 more and it's mostly shit then I get 0.

WORKING OUT:
Did I do my daily workout and hit my numbers? If so, 10. If I didn't hit my numbers but still did it, 8. If I skipped it, 0. Note that I have a precise training plan so it's easy for me to rate this.

WORK:
I work from home so I have to keep motivated. 6 hours and above: 10/10. 0 hours = 0. 1 hour = 2. Easy enough!

So that's worth 3/5 when you average it out. What's the rest? The rest is random. How did your day go? Did something great happen? If nothing of note happens, you get 10/20. Yep just for not dying. Then you lose points for every horrible thing, based on how bad you perceive them to be. So if your dad died, that'll be a horrible day for you. If you get laid by Mila Kunis, then that's pretty much one of the best days ever regardless.

As you can see, this is a mix of objective and subjective factors.

EXAMPLE CALCULATIONS

Work: 8, Working out: 10, Food: 5. Today my best friend got hit by a bus. Today is fucking gay. 2/20.
DAY SCORE: 5/10.

Work: 10, Working out: 10, Food: 10. Did nothing special today. 10/20.
DAY SCORE: 8/10

Work: 10, Working out: 10, Food: 10. Got engaged!
DAY SCORE: 20/20. DAY SCORE:10/10

Work: 1, Working out: 0, Food: 3. Dad died. 0/20.
DAY SCORE: 0.8/10

You might have to change your scoring for weekends / vacations etc. Figure it out, I'm not your mom. Download this graph and complete it:



BONUS PROJECT Write down how you felt each day using separate data points. See if there's any relation! See if you start feeling better when you realize all your days are good, or if you start feeling worse when you realize you're a horrible lazy sack of turds! FUN! Example of graph being filled out. Use MS paint if you want.



So here, the green is the actual rating and the red is the mood. That would be a depressed person! SCIENCE!

CONTEST CONTEST CONTEST CONTEST

To make you do this, I organize a contest. If you fill out this graph, I will enter your name into a random drawing and 2 people will get a random thing sent to them in the mail! I don't know what yet, but it'll be awesome and stupid and you will not own one of whatever it is I'm going to send you.

Just send me an email ( poxpower@newgrounds.com) or a PM on Newgrounds and if I reply to you, it means you're entered in the contest. I'll only accept names of people who enter before this actually starts in March 2013. That's the deadline to enter.

WHAT DO TO:

- Download the graph and fill it out for all 31 days. You don't need to do the mood thing.
- Send me a short text where you tell me what you used as criteria to rate your days.
- In that text, tell me a little about your best and worst day this month.

Alright kewl! Do it!
