Spare Time Over a Lifetime by Carni Klirs

This was a student project, where the assignment was to create a visualization to introduce ourselves to the class, using some personal data. I decided to create a Stream Graph showing how I spent my spare time in the 33 years I've been alive.

While my intention was to use a serious visualization method for a silly subject, through the creation of this I was surprised at the number of insights it revealed. For example, my interest in painting during the high school years was pretty much replaced with learning guitar while I was in college. Additionally, the vertical peak in my late 20s of the aggregate free time area, is when I freelanced for two years.
