**I think my time is pretty evenly between personal interactions, entertainment, and computers/media. It is a little embarrassing how much time I spend on my computer, for music, facebook, etc. Even when I am working on homework, I usually have facebook and itunes open in different tabs. I try not to text when I am actually with my friends, but it happens sometimes. If I am alone or working on homework, it is a given that I am also texting.

    Good reflections, Marisa. It reminds me of a study I’ll discuss tomorrow that’s found that we have the same amount of free time as people did years ago – it’s just that today, our free time is cut into smaller “bursts” – e.g., 7 minutes here, 2 1/2 minutes there. This is what contributes to us feeling busier than we think people were in the past. I’ll ask you what you think about that in class: are you busier than students of a generation ago? Is it because of media or because of expectations of students/workers, or something else?
