It’s interesting that even though it was a busy day, where I went for a period of almost 4 hours with no computer, I still managed to log in tons of media useage. And why do we all have a compulsive need to check Facebook? I don’t even “creep” people. I just let it sit open in case someone wants to talk to me. And then I complain when people try to talk and I’m watching TV online. Apart form my Facebook habit, I’m not ashamed of my other media useage. I’m proud to say I read a “tree book” for an hour every night before going to sleep. I check my email frequently, but that’s a necessity in this day and age. And entertainment? Why not? I lead a productive life, I exercise regularly. If I’m just going to be sitting down and eating supper alone, why not watch TV? I just need to watch that I don’t cut into homework time.
