The Internet aka. (possibly) one of the most important things in my life.
It’s hard to imagine a life before the Internet as it has become a daily necessity for most people. Whether it be for information or connecting with people, it continues to grow and find reasons to be in my life (and everyone else’s).
I started using the Internet back in 2009 and over the years became more and more reliant. Back then I used it mainly to talk to my friends or play online games, but over time it became a vital part of my schooling and staying in touch with people. I definitely developed a social media addiction along the way, which lasted for a few years, but have recently overcome that.
There is so much accessible and new information out there that can be reached with the snap of my fingers. This is one of the main reasons it’s so great, it’s efficient and useful in most situations. Whether you are lost, checking the bus schedule, researching a subject, or simply messaging your friend across the room, the amount of the things you can do is endless. It has something for everyone, and will continue to grow.
I can’t imagine how much further it will develop, but I am sure the Internet still has a long way ahead of it. Luckily, I got over my addiction, so now the Internet has really just become a tool for me, and I am very grateful to be able to use it so efficiently everyday.
