                What I’ve noticed is that my personal communications come first, with entertainment in second.  Most of the entertainment that occurs though, is done in a large group of people, so I am personally communicating with people at the same time.  My uses of communication are mostly typical for an active college student: always socializing, always doing something, always procrastinating on homework through use of the Internet.  Many different and time-consuming websites are easily reachable, through both my computer and my cell phone. I’m constantly in touch with one of the two.  My day to day activities are generally the same- hanging out, homework, occasionally going out, going to the gym on weekdays.  The times vary significantly though, mostly because of different times that friends can meet up.

    Interesting reflections, Kaitlynne. It reminds me of a study I’ll bring up tomorrow about how today, we have about the same amount of free time as people did in the past – it’s just in shorter “bursts.” E.g., we have less concentrated leisure time, more back-and-forth between commitments/expectations, so instead of 3 hrs of free time, we have 5 minutes, then an activity, then 7 minutes, activity, 2 1/2 minutes of free time, etc.. Often, that scheduling due to work settings, but it also seems to be something you do somewhat voluntarily. Or maybe that’s the nature of how young people are expected to interact and be available to friends? I will look forward to hearing your views on this.
