In my impression, my father is the perfect reader in our family: he subscribed some local newspapers and read them with his critical mind. As for me, I just skipped all the way to the entertainment page and read them with my afternoon cookies.
I’m now not so much an entertainment reader; facing this multi-media world, I’m more of an “absorber”: eager to get close to the world in different ways. I check my email when I wake up in the morning and I label the important ones. After that I will go on Facebook and Twitter to follow up some news around me. While eating breakfast, I read New York Times on my iPhone app, checking big issues; the bonus is—news make me chew more slowly, which is more healthy, I assume. I then read the Washington Post on the bus on my iPhone with music shuffling. Usually it’s a short way so I could just scan some of the big news lists ahead, but I enjoy the time with music and news. I get The Daily Collegian in the library after I get off the bus and I read it on the nearest sofa; it is a new habit I’m building.
One important thing I want to share is that I check my Instagram account very often and it is my favorite thing to do, especially with a cup of coffee. Yes, I am a picture people, obsessing with romantic pictures along with short words. Here is my list of “must follow” Instagram account; there are landscape poster like paulyvella, aditzt or cute food poster nao1223, and “beautiful life” theme poster monchouchou, emilieristevski, maghettastrenghetta.
That’s basically my daily reading list except there is one more thing worth mentioning: I chat with my father using Skype almost every night, talk news we read, share our opinions and make comments; It’s like a information exchange.
Before bedtime I will go over some Chinese Social Networks, which are similar to those in the states. (They are also worth knowing but it’s complicated to explain here)
