Media Diary: Day 2

I woke up at 8am and avoided all media except for turning off the alarm clock on my cell phone until i left the house for my doctor’s appointment.  On the road at 9:20 I called my mom to let her know that I was on my way.  Arriving at the office at 9:30, I filled out some forms and handed them to the receptionist.  I then read an issue of Time Magazine for half an hour.  I then tweeted about how doctor’s are always behind schedule.  I subsequently used my cell phone’s browser to check my email and look at Kotaku and IGN.  The doctor finally saw me at 10:50.

At 11:30 I left the doctor’s office and called my mom again to let her know how the visit went.  I hung up with her upon arriving at Falafel King to pick up lunch.  There I checked my tweets and noted nothing of interest.  I finally got home at about 12:45pm and ate my lunch while watching strategy videos for Civilization V on YouTube and texting my friend about how the appointment went.  At 1:30 I turned on SPSS to run statistical analyses that I copied and pasted into Word and wrote up a results section.  I then emailed this assignment to my professor.

I got to the bus stop at 2:20 and on the bus I used my cell phone and a headset to watch more of the Civilization V videos.  I then had class from 3 to 5.

I got on the bus back home at 5:15, checked my tweets and texts, and then watched more Civ V videos.  I arrived home at 6 o’clock and my friend texted me that she wanted to go to Publix later.  I installed Civilization V on my computer and started up a game at about 6:30.  I left my fake Russian Empire alone at 8 to got to Publix with my friend.  We listened to music in the car.

I got back at 9 and continued nurturing my civilization until my phone notified me of a comment on my day one media diary concerning a mix up about when the entry was posted.  I replied, hoping to clear up the matter, and then changed my theme so that it may be more clear as to when my entries were posted.

I stopped playing Civilization V at 12:15, realized I had forgotten to watch Castle, and then started to write this entry while listening to the IGN Gamescoop podcast.

Another day done.  Whew.

  1. I’m leaving this comment so that the time stamp will be documentation of when the post was actually published. Goodnight world. 🙂

  2. Ha, magazines in waiting rooms — that is now the main time for me to read printed magazines (and on planes).

    Kotaku and IGN are … ?

    “… on the bus I used my cell phone and a headset to watch more of the Civilization V videos.” Downloaded, or streaming?

    Castle was pretty good last night!

    Your post prompted me to read a review of Civilization V. “Following the path started by Civilization: Revolution, the game has become simpler for new players to get right into, but still maintains a deep level of complexity for the true Civ fanatic.” Hmm … tempting … I played a lot of games in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but I haven’t had time since then.
