I find this image absolutely hilarious because it completely shows when people have midterms/assignments due, and when everyone decides to come into work. The red line shows private messages, and the purple show public messages. As you can see, near mid to end of November, almost all messages have been private, meaning that everyone is busy with projects and we’re all only checking in with individuals, rather than communicating with the entire lab. Early November is mostly public messages, where we were all finished with early midterms. I am extremely curious to see what December is going to look like with exams and such.
