Not long ago, I was rarely ever on the computer. Most of the homework I did was written and I didn't really enjoy staring at a screen. Nowadays, you'll usually find me surfing the web. It's amazing how vast the limits are on what you can do on the internet.

There was a time when I had only gone online a few times, and got email at my sister's on her computer, then doing some research into topics of interest I found myself finding more and more information but even with that I wasn't online that much, then it seems like I am online more. I grew up writing out my homework, and doing math with out a calculator, etc, I did my research by going through the library, sometimes finding a variety of books that didn't apply to the topic I was researching, and other times, finding what I wanted, this would often take a long time. Any good research for a school report did. Now, if I want to know something I look it up online. I realized that overall I am not the only one but I have become so used to the computer, I wonder if those who didn't grow up with a computer could even begin to do research on a subject with out a computer. Now I use the puter, to find directions, to check what is on tv, to look up information about all kinds of things. During a period where a pole was down in the area and I lost access for three days I was so surprised how often I would go to the computer to look for something, or if I wanted a song I didn't have the cd for I would go online to find it, if I needed a phone number, I would go online, I don't think I even have the yellow pages here. It is surprising how much I have resorted to this. I used to read books by the dozens, I don't read as often as I used to at least not books, but I do read a lot of articles and topics online. So that periodically I will purposely shut down and just avoid the puter for a couple of days, or a day, since I think it is important to not become additcted to using the internet.
