When I have lots of homework to do, I like to do none. I’m supposed to be typing up a paragraph about Medium Theory right now, but my mind thought it would be far more productive and inspiring to the rest of the world if I typed up this paragraph about how I’m not writing about Medium Theory. I can tell you that I’m not organising my research into some intelligible group of sentences explaining that some guy named McLuhan thought that “Medium is the Message”, and that it’s also very cold in this room.
I like to call this my “lunch break”…because I had lunch about an hour ago and I couldn’t possibly start studying again until the clock is at an even interval, either half past the hour or on the hour. That’s a legitimate excuse, right?
…I can sense you shaking your head.
