After looking through my journal entries on how much time I spend on my laptop and how long I am on the Internet I just feel like I am chained down all week. I think part of the reason I get so excited about the weekend is because I work so hard through out the week trying to get all my homework done so that on the weekends I can focus on getting the house ready that my fiancé and I will be living in when we are married and planning wedding stuff. Also on the weekends since I don’t have wifi where I stay its nice to just focus on life and live it. Note to anyone who wants to have a life do NOT take 21 credits, plan a wedding, and try to get a house ready before the wedding. I am glad that I am taking classes that I enjoy because it makes it easier to spend time on them. Since I am always on the computer doing homework I feel like I am missing out on the fun that some of my peers are participating on. I feel like I do my best work when I am alone in the classroom and my fiancé isn’t texting me because I have no distractions. Playing upbeat music helps me to stay focused on getting my homework done.

    I think it is great that you do work so hard during the week to get all of your homework done, but your journal does show how many hours are spent glued to a laptop. Do you think there is a way to work around it to still have your weekend free? Or is it just a stone cold fact that in order to get your work done you need your technology time? Also super jealous you’re planning a wedding! Best of Luck 🙂

      I have tried spending less time on technology for class and it isn’t a good idea… Don’t be too jealous about planning a wedding..its more work than i thought. However, the excitement for the big day makes the planning doable! 🙂
