Monday 1/10/11

8 am ~ Chemistry class, took notes from lecture and textbook

9 am ~ went to the UTS desk to help install program on computer

10 -12 ~ Writing class, used computers to write in class papers

Overall reflection: Most of my time and communication is doing homework or talking with friends via Facebook or texting. I don’t watch as much T.V. as I use to while living at home, it use to be on in the background a lot more however because I am not in my dorm all the time, it is more likely off than on. I do like to keep up with what is going on in the world, which is why I get on the Internet to sites such as Fox News or 9news.com. I am on my laptop everyday for most of the day during the week while attending classes. I would live a very different life style if I didn’t have my laptop or cell phone.

    Good insights, Steph. Your work – from homework to Facebook to music – sounds a lot like how people in your generation seem to prefer multitasking to doing one thing at a time.
    How did you find out about the shooting: did you check an online source, or see a headline show up on a homepage, or something else? Something to discuss in class tomorrow.
