November 15th

We live in a time with amazing technological advances. I google things daily on my wireless internet, from my laptop computer. I can see what my friends are up to 1,000+ miles away. Video chat with people. I can look up recipes. I can read reviews on things before I buy them to see what other people though. I can order things online and they are shipped directly to my apartment! I can record tv shows with DVR and they are saved in my cable box. I can google locations on my phone and my GPS will give me step by step instructions on how to get there! My generation is the last generation to know what it’s like to not have the internet. Technology moves at amazing speeds, and quite frankly, it’s hard to keep up with! Sometimes I hate technology, but more often than not, I am thankful for it. I’m not like a super techie person, but without certain forms of technology, like the GPS on my phone, I would literally be lost… I find myself getting too dependent on my computer and my phone, and I sometimes just have to step away for a while and take a break. But I always end up going back to look something up! I do love that it helps me to keep in touch with my family and friends back home. My oldest sister who has a little 2 year old boy, calls my grandparents so they “FaceTime” on their iPhones with their great grandson. My sisters and I, all living in different states, can video chat simultaneously. When I want to send a quick message to sometime I can text, email, or write on their facebook wall. The age we live it makes it incredibly easy to keep in touch with people that are far and near. I sometimes get tired of all the technical things that I have to keep up with in today’s advancing society; however, I am also thankful for what positive things can come out of technology.
