Alright. So you know how you are always advocating the 20/10 method? When I'm writing papers I work in 45/15 just cause 20 minutes usually isnt long enough for me to fully examine a portion of my essay and 45 minutes tends to work rather well. Well I was working on my historiography for my Revolutionary American class and I had the Pomodoro timer extension in Chrome set and I was so damn focused on my work that when it went off, it scared me something terrible. I jumped. Seeking to entertain. :D
45/15s seem to work better for schoolwork in general. And yeah, my timer has scared the crap out of me on more than one occasion.
