Thank goodness for my smart phone! I may have overslept!
Presenting: My Digital Life, A One Act Play Starring Amanda Frerichs
Amanda must rely on a smartphone's alarm clock to wake her up in the morning.
"I can't possibly start my day without checking all of my social media!" Fueling the body must, obviously, come afterwards.
Amanda has a day filled with homework! But, golly, she can't do her homework without some background noise from the television.
As the HOURS go by, Amanda finds herself distracted by the other facets of technology at her disposal. She checks her email, her phone, goes into the vortex of Youtube and Pinterest, and even finds her way to Amazon for some shopping. Therefore, the 6 hours recorded doing "homework" was definitely not all spent doing just that.
This One Act play is not exciting, and that is because Amanda was unable to pull herself away from her technology. However, Amanda has become aware that she cannot and could not function as a Graduate student at the University of Michigan without 24/7 access to technology.
