It seems that I’ll do anything to avoid writing my ethics essay for uni – watching TV, household chores, (thinking about) gardening, even adding another post to this widely-read blog! A looming deadline used to be motivation enough but it just doesn’t seem to make a difference when it comes to a subject which has nothing to do with “Web-Based Information Systems” (my B Info Tech major).
Well, I suppose applied ethics is relevant if you’re an academic cooped-up inside a faculty building somewhere but there’s no way I can summon 2,000 words worth of interest in this. It’s enough to make me wish I was taking statistics or accounting again (both not related to web programming and I hate mathematics in all its forms). I think I’ll go and watch Top Gear and ogle the Aston Martin DB9.
