Work and Play

My last final exam—a philosophy take-home test—was due at 5:00pm this past Thursday. That means that I was done with my classes for the summer at 4:55pm on Thursday. As I finished the last of 9 pages under the gun, I wondered how many pages I had written during junior year.

Today, after a little copy and pasting in Microsoft Word, I have the answer:

Word count: 154 pages

Because of the nature of paper writing, some of those pages only have a paragraph or a couple of lines on them. I counted those pages as well, but if you wanted to be really conservative, you could knock 10 pages off my number. What does 154 pages look like? See for yourself.
