If I become desperate while grading papers, I may pop in a movie. But currently my default when I come home from lab is to plop down in front of the TV. I usually have my computer in front of me so that I can check email and futz around the internet, but I'm not nearly as productive or efficient as I could be if I didn't have any distractions in the background.
I need to be productive this week, or I'll never catch up from all I have to do after coming back from Iceland.
Let the experiment begin!
