It's Not All BadThere are so many pros and cons to the internet. While it has allowed people greater access to one another, it has also offered an alternative to one on one interactions. It used to be you could minimize contact with a phone call. You were still at the mercy of the person on the other end and their gabby jaws, but at least something could "come up" and you could hang up. Once the internet came into play, you could just send an email...an even more impersonal way to communicate. Being a somewhat guarded person, I have found that I use the "easy way out" often when it comes to interacting with other people. I will use e-mails and text messages to take the brunt of my communications.
On the other hand, the internet when it comes to resources for educational purposes. I have recently started college and I am not completely proficient in all of the elements of Office. It is nice to be able to just google search a question and find a quick answer on "how" to do something. It is much quicker to type out a report and hit print than it is to handwrite or (at the risk of really dating myself) typing out it out on a typewriter.
I appreciate the ease of the technological age, but I miss the simplicity of days past. With greater abilities comes greater responsibilities.
