After looking at my media journal, I noticed that I used sources of media less during this weekend than I usually do during the week.  I think that my media journal would look much different during the week when I am doing more class work that involves the computer.  This weekend in particular I didn’t have much computer work to do for classes so I think that this may not be a very accurate account of how I always interact with media.  From looking at my journal for this particular weekend it shows that I use media the most for personal communication with family and friends through texts, phone calls, and emails.  The secondary use for media was entertainment through watching television.

    Good insights, Chelsea. I agree that this point in the quarter is different from usage later on, and the weekend probably looks quite different from the weekday. I wonder which communications you feel are more key to how you live out your life every day? And which communications are “time-fillers” (e.g., what you do when you’re in between activities) vs. “appointments” (the activities you’ve planned to do)?
