I donâ€™t really watch TV for funâ€¦I donâ€™t have the time, but I have watched a lot of movies these past three days - mostly, because it was the weekend and mostly because I have something going on the background while I am updating my schedule. I am always watching a movie at any given point though. I watch something as a get dressed in the morning, as a clean my room after class, as I get ready for bed, and just before going to sleep. I donâ€™t actually own a TV, but on some days (like during the Grammys) I wish I had one. Other times, Iâ€™m gladâ€¦I would be so distracted!
I love watching movies alone or with friends at a theater, but recently theater tickets have become somewhat expensive, so I only go every couple of weeks when there is a movie I really want to see. I use my laptop as the main vehicle of over Âľ of my media consumption - I watch DVDs that I get from Netflix, friends or the Sanford Hall front desk. I have included print media in my media log because I think I usually am more of a print consumer, also I mostly see advertisements and the like in magazines, newspaper, and other miscellaneous printings. I sometimes upload podcasts to my iPod, but not usually, and since my iPod just stopped working (it happens annuallyâ€¦this is my third iPod have gotten from Apple as a replacement!) I wonâ€™t be listening to any music until I go to the Mall of America this weekend.
I am person who consciously chooses to consume media. I have to set aside time to read the paper or watch the online Nightly News show. I am always short on time, so I choose to consume media that is flexible and best fits my time schedule. I like media that can be paused, thrown into my backpack, or left up on my laptop for me to look at later when I get back from class, work or meetings.
