One of the hardest things for many college students to accomplish is to be able to focus and study without distraction. In an age that includes cell phones, ipods, internet and phone games, laptops, twitter, facebook, instagram, foursquare and more (you get my gist) it is increasingly difficult to sit down and unplug yourself from all the outlets of media. Even email could be considered a huge distraction. In fact, I always have my email up and will stop whatever I'm doing to check a new email. My average response time to emails is probably about four seconds... well, maybe not that fast, but it's not unusual at all to get replies from me within a few minutes of your message being sent.
Today, though, I was able to work on things relatively diligently, and I still had time to eat lunch with some friends, and veg out and play a little video games. It certainly helped that I put on Family Guy on Netflix while I was working and doing my drawings. I got, more or less, what I wanted to get done today, at least enough to the point where I can clear my designs with my studio professor tomorrow, and that was the goal. That way I would still have Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning for models; if need be. In fact I worked so much, that I probably went through a season and a half or even two seasons of Family Guy while I worked. It's something that's fun to listen to and entertains me when I get stuck with whatever I'm working on. We are, after all, a generation of multi-tasking. I'm just glad that I pretty much kept my focus today. That bodes well for the rest of the semester, and hell, for life too!
