Well, here I am. Back to it today! Ready to answer to gratitude yet again. Let’s jump right in, shall we?
2. What technology are you grateful for?
A: The internet, duh. I love trying to find the end of it! Kidding. (Sort of…)
I actually AM grateful for the internet. Anyone who is close to me has been annoyed at least once with my necessity to IMMEDIATELY look something up that no one can remember the answer to. How can I ignore that I can have that answer in seconds(!!!) when I didn’t have the information a moment before? It’s fascinating to me. I’m curious about everything, and a bit of a know-it-all, so not knowing the answer to something gets on my nerves.
I’m also grateful for cell phone cameras, and the ability to share moments captured with family over e-mail or social media. Most of my family lives 5 states away, and I only get to see them in person 1-2 times per year. This especially sucks because my daughter is growing up away from her grandparents, and my nephews are growing up away from me. They change SO much between visits, but at least I get to share and see some of those changes via picture. I think I’d be a big slobbery, crying mess otherwise.
What about you? Are you grateful for the same common forms of technology that I am, or is your gratitude pointed toward something more obscure?
