Summary:

After completing this journal, I have realized that my daily life is consumed with media of all types. In order to do my homework and job as president of my sorority, I have to spend a lot of time on my computer doing e-mails. I also use my phone to call members and to communicate with my executive board and advisors. In my leisure time, I enjoy watching tv, listening to music, reading, and watching movies. I recently purchased Apple TV and I love being able to stream everything from my computer, including my netflix, through my TV. I must admit, this new toy has me watching TV a lot more that I normally do! I also recently purchased a record player and have acquired quite the collection of vinyl. I love listing music on this device, as the acoustics of the old fashioned player and the old fashioned technology of the records creates a unique sound that is so pure. Aside from reading textbooks, I love to read the New York Times. I prefer to read from books and the newspaper, as opposed to the online versions, because I like to feel the book and the paper. Sometimes, however, I do read on my iPhone, iPad, or MacBook, if it’s easier. The advancement of technology is absolutely incredible, and I am so grateful to have so many forms of media to utilize.
