It’s 9:00 p.m. and I have been doing homework since I walked in the door after work. I’m tired of reading about media convergence and the diffusion of innovations theory… what I really want to do is tear open my new US Weekly magazine and read all about my favorite celebrities, enjoy the pictures, and experience some mindless entertainment. If I could do that while soaking in a bubble bath, that would even be better.
But, I’m almost done with my paper/critique of this riveting journal article, so I might as well hunker down and finish it. If I do, it means I can play all weekend and not worry about stinky old homework.
Maybe I can sneak in a few pages of US tonight as I huddle under my electric blanket and hide from the cold wind that’s howling at my window.
