Zoom Calls Are My Daily Podcasts

Zoom won’t hold you back from learning economics and ordering a Crunchwrap in the Taco Bell drive-thru at the same time.

I have been attending college in the Taylor-Swift-Reputation era for some time now. The attire is pretty casual with an over-sized New York Mets t-shirt and pajama pants. It is hard to dress code a student in their own home. However, my work ethic and engagement during classes is crashing. The Zoom meeting is the least of my worries.

A 10 am lecture on Zoom is the perfect way to start my day. I am smearing leftover guacamole on toast listening to the fundamentals of our stock market. A college class worth thousands of dollars is an accessory to my daily routine.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to mastering the skill of multitasking. My attendance class is always 100% and I try to make strong efforts to listen intently while continuing my day. The chances of me getting caught handling other tasks are quite low through a computer screen.

Is it my fault I’m not prioritizing my Zoom lecture? Absolutely, there is a to-do list running through my mind sitting at my desk. The duration of an hour and a half lecture could be spent watering houseplants or refilling the ice tray. Am I doing those particular things? No, I am likely firing up the flat iron to be sure my hair looks good for selfies.
