Technology

     Is technology taking over your life?!?
     I know my sister enjoys the use of a GPS in her car, I use a calculator for advanced math (and sometimes less advanced math) and I tend to feel lost without my cell phone.  Technology and gadgets can be useful.  Taking your laptop to class for notes or using it between classes for homework is very effective.  More effective than signing in to the ARC and leaning over the keyboard and desk to view the screen (yes I find this annoying).  But do you rely on your GPS so much that reading a map seems illogical anymore?  Are you losing other skills, like driving, in order to text friends?
    I find that there is a technology balance.  A little teeter-totter that leads to cyborg on one side and hermit on the other.  I’ve teetered more than tottered, though.  Sometimes I find myself texting at the store and not getting my shopping done.  So instead of hanging out in the cyborg seat, hop into the middle for a more interesting thrill of face to face conversation and listening to the whole lecture your teacher is giving you.
