So I was having a discussion earlier today with a couple of people in the toy section that had to do with the growing number of people who're able to use class or work time for other/personal shit, especially as it related to the internet. I mean from my experience, even in the few classes where I was allowed to have a computer or phone with me, there was never time to go on forums or otherwise do my own shit without falling behind & ultimately screwing myself in the process, and it's not like I was ever in anything heavy. I guess Drafting was an exception to the free time thing, but even the spare time we had (which really only happened if you worked ahead) was better served taking a look at future drawings & things anyway, especially ones involving bonus work that you pretty much needed to submit in order to avoid getting a low mark at the end. I guess this was my instructor's way of encouraging us not to screw around if we didn't need the whole hour or whatever. Now, this isn't to say that I never had time for other things (I usually did my Physics homework during my Interior Design class because our teacher was a dolt & figured it would take us multiple classes to look through magazines), but it still amazes me how so many people seem to have so much time during class for things other than school work these days. It's kinda the same thing with work too, which has also puzzled me a great deal, and I figured it had the potential for some amusing discussion. I guess the latter point has more to do with the job you have & the sort of supervision (I've never worked in a place where you could afford not to be busy close to 100% of the time which I know isn't the case for everyone), but yeah. Also, how many people reading this thread are doing so during class or working hours? Don't worry. Contrary to my avatar, I'm not actually a rat.
