The average American who completes college would spend:

9.9 seconds at Work (=work, travel to work, getting ready for work)
5.0 seconds in School (=class, homework, and travel to school)
20.6 seconds Sleeping (=fall asleep to wake up)
24.5 seconds of Other Time (=cooking, eating, recreation, travel, kids, errands, personal email)
60.0 seconds

Keep in mind that though school and work look small in the larger scheme of life, they eat the time of our lives when we are physically and mentally the sharpest and they consume daylight hours when our energy is the highest.
