twenties series: [five] technology

image

some arguments were made that technology is altering people interaction and that we are losing the ability to communicate with face to face conversations. that may be true on some level, but can’t argue that technology is a powerful tool that has also brought us many conveniences like never before. sure, the increased gaming opportunities isn’t a good reflection but a little wouldn’t hurt. no one can argue being able to send a short message or quickly snap and send a picture through our mobile phones applications in a matter of seconds is not convenient, the simplicity to check in or tag your friends in photos to share, or the ability to retrieve an email the second it arrives is not efficient. let’s be realistic, who doesn’t own a computer or cellphone these days and who still uses land line as home phone?? the technological world is advancing so quickly, the fastest and most efficient way is to constantly be checking all sorts of platforms. i must admit i am a culprit of relying on technology everyday, every waking hour. i don’t see how that can be a bad thing because just by checking up on social media, it allows me to catch up on some friend news, gossip new and world news even if it means reading them off my facebook wall. i admit i am the person who would be swiping on my phone at the dinner table; but in my defense, being a busy person makes it is not all unncessary activity, but i am working on minimizing that. bottom line is i feel so lost and naked without my phone, i simply cannot live without technology and i don’t think its a bad thing

day 149 – facebook addicts

saw this sold behind the target cashier counter and found it extremely hypocritical. i don’t see how a $25 gift card selling for exact face value would be of any discount. not to mention i honestly had no idea such gift card existed and still wondering why would anyone want this as a gift.

day 60 – numero sixty!!

made it over 100000 chips on myvegas for the first time, sadly it was very short lived and dipped back down to five digits. i guess all gambling slots machines and tables are made alike where you can never win against dealers and casinos. when will i go on a streak of good spins and win some??

day 58 – crazy

opened my eyes in the morning to check my phone while i was still lying in bed half asleep and to my amazement, notifications bombardment. this is something i am noto used to because never in my life had i felt so popular, i think my popularity level just soared off the chart
