Time In JellyBeans

By: Sarah Wilbur and Grace Wilbur

One of the “Top Trending” videos of the week on YouTube entitled, “The Time You Have (In JellyBeans)” is too influential not to share.

The (almost) 3 minute video begins by explaining how the average person spends majority of their time. Some of the statistics resulted in: 28,835 days which is the average lifespan, 8,477 days which is the average amount of time we will spend sleeping, and 3,222 days which is the average amount of time we will spend at work.

The numbers keep minimizing and the original number of 79 years (average lifespan) all the way down to a total of 2,740 days. That number represents the “other.” The time that is not categorized or counted as apart of an average life.

The video concludes by pulling even more beans aways from the “other” time all the way down to “your last bean.” With a challenging tone, the video expresses the importance of making “each bean count” as it asks questions to the viewer that really make you think.

If today was your last bean, what would you do differently?

How many beans have you already wasted?

How many do you have left?
