Revisiting the "perception vs. reality" theme one year later! (Your slices of the pie may vary, of course.) I have my brother to thank for the graphic design.

This is definitely more realistic (reality pie chart) it is not as glamourous as people make out smile

smile Glad y'all like it.

It's already been pointed out to me by several people that the brush cleaning slice ought to be much bigger. LOL! So true. (In fact, that's what I need to do right now... ugh...)

It really is too bad the first pie chart isn't more true haha.

It's also nice to see some familiar names on here after about a year hiatus. smile

I love this!!!

The pie chart section labelled "commuting" needs to be tripled for those of us living in certain nasty traffic areas of the world, though.

Oh man, having sat in Boston rush hour traffic many times, believe me, I sympathize. In hindsight, I would have made the commuting & brush cleaning slices much bigger ;D

So true.  It's an artform and can be stressful like any other job. I love my job and feel so blessed I get to do what I love, but it's not as Glam as people make out
