Technology. It’s something that is required for just about everyone in our generation.

No matter how hard I try, I just can’t get away from technology. Even though I know how much I don’t want it, there is always that little urge inside of me that needs it. One moment, I’ll be vowing my mouth off about how I’m not going to use my phone at all this week. Then, in the next hour you’ll see me on the couch browsing Instagram.

I find escaping technology extremely hard when I’m at my house. About everywhere you look there is technology. In the kitchen, in the living room, in the bedrooms, upstairs, downstairs, etc. Because of all of this technology, going out with friends mostly consists of sitting in a restaurant staring at a small cell phone screen. Sometimes, I think technology has taken up my life.

Even though there are a lot of downsides to using technology, there is always some good in it, too. Online messaging helps you meet interesting new people. Posting pictures helps your share your interests with the world. When using Google, you learn new things. On a blog, you can freely share you opinion with others.

I hope I helped you realize things you didn’t realize before about this topic and feel free to share what you think in the comments!
