what’s wrong with today’s society

By @ShadowFang17

technology problems

On October 15, 2017, one of my friends texted some of my other friends and me something that got me thinking.

We are all way too addicted to technology these days.

“It, along with its social media platforms, gives people the illusion that they are connected to time, the outside world, when really, we are slaves to these stupid things. We pay more attention to them than actual people in our lives. These things will probably be the death of us. Do you know how hard it is to get a person to look you in the eye during a conversation these days? Their eyes are almost always avoiding yours. It sucks. Even now, as I rant via touching my screen several times so it’ll pop up on yours, I would rather be playing games with my family. Alas, they are all too sucked into their screens at the moment.

Technology has COMPLETELY ruined our society. Social skills are going down by the second.” (lyndeeloohoo)

She is completely correct. It’s extremely hard to have a complete conversation with someone face to face without one of the people in the conversation checking their phone or doing something that has to do with technology.

I believe that we should all try to set aside a small amount of time to just be without technology, maybe thirty minutes or so, just go outside or talk to someone. I think this would help everyone, help us build relationships and grow deeper bonds with the people that we care about.

Who’s with me?

    While I do believe school is important I feel that homework is very unnecessary. Most people look up the answers anyway, and some people don’t focus on it. Over all I think it’s a little bit of a wasted activity, and as most homeworks are graded for completion only I would not be surprised if people just write any old answer.
