I think I have a lot of laughter in my life. Well… I’m addicted to it. I enjoy the human creativity in memes. I am a big fan of memes.
I try to approach life with a healthy distance and optimism. My sense of humor in conversations with others often provokes bursts of laughter. This week’s data proves it.
Throughout the week, I recorded the amount and sources of “laughs”. I only counted the ones after which I immediately remembered that I had to write them down. I think I could have missed at most 10% of “laughs”.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to experiment this week, so I went for a simple bar chart.
It is interesting that we were both examining the sources of laughter. I must admit that Klaudia’s postcard presents the data more efficiently. I can maybe find one drawback: the categories are not sorted from largest to smallest.
Laughter… In fact I have no idea how often I am laughing. I mean real laughter, honest and uninhibited. This week made me realize that I owe the vast majority of „laughter” to my three-year-old daughter, who is telling me more and more interesting stories each day, as she grows up. She discovers the Polish language, tests various word combinations, and I try not to laugh too loud 🙂
I decided that I would only count the so-called bursts of laughter. In total, I counted quite a lot of them. The results surprised me. I didn’t really realize how empty my life would (probably) be without Nina.
I didn’t have many ideas this week, so I chose a simple treemap. I enriched the chart with smiling faces to show exactly how many outbursts of laughter I had last week.
I noticed that I really like using a ruler and a calculator when creating postcards – I use these tools really often in Dear Data 🙂 I think I will never forget the size of an A6 sheet for the rest of my life.
How many memes! Jakub, send me the funniest :-)! After seeing the postcard, I was a bit embarrassed that I was so monothematic, but it’s probably a matter of timing and the lack of live conversations with people (well, still the pandemic…).
