I have a very nebulous sense of time myself, always have, so basically, with the 6WC, if I forget to watch the clock properly, I just go with what I know it usually takes me to do that task or a similar task. Also, like you, I know myself well enough to know how long I can sit down and do a thing before I need to switch and do something else.

However I admit I tend to estimate down when I have to estimate the time I spend on something because, again, my sense of time is so nebulous. Like with reading, doing textbook work or writing in one of my language journal, 2 hours can pass and it'll feel like 30-40 minutes to me. But what helps me there is I usually study at specific times of the day because of the other things I need to do throughout the day. So having those smaller blocks on time where I habitually study helps me measure the amount of time I do study even when I forget to consciously note the exact time I started and stopped. It's rare for me to just have a day where I can just get lost in studying for more than 3 hours tops, unless it very late at night and everyone else in the house is fast asleep, so I usually can guess how much time I studied just based on the limitations of my daily schedule.

Re. Can I still sign up
Answer: Yes and welcome!

Re. Time? What time?
Experience: I switched from recording on the phone or laptop to recording on a piece of paper that I carry around with me. And I write both the FROM and TO times
15:20 - 15:35
so that even when I forget to record something, I know what time I last recorded something, so I don’t overestimate the current session.
It’s still the hardest part of a 6WC though :lol:

Oops, fail! I thought I had posted here to officially withdraw when my neuro relapse began, but apparently my brain also malfunctioned on the step involving the "Submit" button. :oops: :lol:

Congrats! to PM, great work! to everyone else, and I had fun while it lasted!
