From Geniaus comes the question, "What's your morning tech routine?"
My answer: I do not do morning, and I despise routine!
I'm a night owl. It is very difficult for me to get up in the morning. (Raising right hand:) I am not now, nor have I ever been, a morning person!
I'm not a fan of routine, either, but there are some things I do on a fairly regular basis. I get up on the mornings I have classes, shower, eat breakfast and take my pills (a routine I refer to as "first breakfast" and "second breakfast"), get dressed, get my books, and go.
As I spend so much time in class or in the university library, I pretty much keep my cell phone turned off. I do not allow my life to be ruled by machines; I see the cell phone primarily as something with which I can communicate if an emergency should arise. But at least once during the class day, and sometimes twice, I do check for messages. At lunchtime, I call my husband.
I also take my lighter laptop to school with me, and in the library I will check on e-mail from my friends & family e-mail account, my "public" account, and my university e-mail. We are actually required to check our university e-mail at least once a day. I take care of any that is pressing, leaving the rest for when I get home. Then I get down to studying.
When I get home in the evening, I take care of the rest of my e-mail, do whatever studying I can, or if it's the end of the week, I play games.
On days I do not go to class, I sleep in. When I get up, I check e-mail, then get into whatever I need to be doing.
I do not use my cell phone at home. We live out in the country, and at our house, we do not get a signal!
And that's as close as I come to a routine.
