Day 29: Wasting time online

I need to work on finding my balance between, sleep, work, and play. I spent most of the day sitting inside on my computer, working on school work and in between looking up jobs and reading about social media. I feel like that is how I spend a lot of my time. At least I am not looking up useless information or just watching TV, but I don’t feel very productive. I am keeping up with my schoolwork, but it isn’t worth spending a whole day inside when the sun is shining and I have a city to continue exploring.

We were put into groups this evening for our digital library project which I am looking forward to. It looks like I will be leading the group, as I am the only one so far thinking about ideas and striving to make a complex, interesting project. It would be great to find a client that allows us to learn and see more about Australia, but not being from here I don’t have the best insight to our options. Back to the Internet for endless searching! I think that is how I waste a lot of time. I get so involved in the research that I don’t get much concrete information because my mind is all over the place. It’s time to start utilising brainstorming techniques and organising my time so I get the most out of this experience. Time for whiteboards and post-its!

(P.S. – If you haven’t noticed, I switched to Australian spell check. Don’t get confused by the use of “s” instead of “z”!)
