My Favorite Godmother asked me to make a 300 worded essay about anything in 30 minutes. I ended it on time but I think I sounded lame. Here it goes:
The Advantages and Disadvantages of Technology in a Student
Nowadays, People depend on technology in their everyday lives like waking up from phone’s alarm, tweeting about how their day went and working on a science project for school. But we have to know the proper use of technology in order for it to function well. Is technology making us lazy? Or just doing things easier for us? I have listed some points of advantages and disadvantages of technology on a student.
When you have a school project, or you have to define something, before you have to look for books at the library to look for references. You have to write it down in paper which is a lot exhausting. But now to the use of technology, you can search for references in seconds by just typing the topic in a search engine in the World Wide Web. Another scenario is when you need you talk to someone far away, You will write him or her a letter which will take a long while before you receive and read it. But not through the use of the internet you just have to e mail him or her or even talk to him through Skype, just like meeting him face to face. We have to admit technology is saving our time, money, and even effort. We are far most productive because of it.
But we should look at what are disadvantages that technology was giving us. Sometimes we misuse technology, like staying long hours at night for Facebook, Twitter and Blogging and we forget to study our lessons. We tend to depend on the internet for all the work for our project. We forgot that we may refer to some books or just read some other useful materials. We also tend to forgot to communicate to other people personally instead we will just greet him or her to some social networking sites. Some sites also develop our young minds to wrong paths such as violence, crimes and even bullying.
In other to be responsible technology user, we need to balance our lives with or without technology install for us. We also have to depend to our own ideas and creativity not just from the internet. Technology is a gift to us humans. We need to use it wisely.
Last night, I watched two movies in a row. Anna Karenina and One Day. I became interested of the two because of the lead actresses, Keira Knightley and Anne Hathaway. I love Keira Knightley’s smile and smoking eyes. She is stunning. I love her in Pride and Prejudice, one of the most romantic movies I watched so far. And who can forget her portrayal in Pirates of the Caribbean? She is just great. Anne Hathaway,on the other hand, is fresh from her Oscar win as the best supporting actress to her brilliant portrayal in Les Miserables.
Back to my story, I watched Anna Karenina first. At the beginning, I was really impressed by the production of the movie. It’s like a throwback to the 18th century. The movie was well-propped and has great script. But the story was full of sorrow, lust and humane imperfections. And it affects me so much which I think the aim of the movie. I was so sad to about the ending. *Spoiler alert. I really didn’t like it when the protagonist ended her life. I felt devastated. To feel good, I watched another movie which was One Day. A romantic movie. Actually I can relate to that because of “the best friends turned to lovers” kind of movie. Oh enough with that. Going back, I find the Leading man *I forgot his name* insanely hot and good-looking. The story was good. The lines touched me. I understand that pain and frustration of Emma(Anne) of loving her best friend Dexter who is taken her for granted. Their friendship really gone to a lot of struggles and even close to giving up everything they have and shared to each other. They are ready to move on and get their respective lives move forward separately. But in the end ,they still let their fate to progress and profess love for each other. I was touched by the story because it is about true love, sacrifice and friendship. Then boooooom *Spoiler Alert* Emma died. Tragic after tragic indeed.

Blog? Why should I have it? I think I just want to express myself through the words circulating in my head. I just want to give my opinion about things that make me happy, sad, excited and furious. Yeah babe. I have Twitter and Facebook. I can do it there. But 140 characters are not enough for this crazy head. And I can’t really express myself in Facebook because duh? It’s too crowded. I was also inspired by the quote “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” said by Maya Angelou. Wolaaa! I love telling stories. To inspire. To make someone smile. I want this blog to be opinionated, to share experiences even if it’s good or bad. Good times will make us smile and inspired. Bad memories will make us strong. Might as well keep the two. I shall write the things I love. The Movies, Books, Magazines, TV shows and anything under the sun. I want this blog to be POSITIVE. I should mention that I’m trying to change myself to PESSIMIST to Optimist. We’ll get to that soon. I have to state my feelings without hesitations but choose right words. Oh dear, I am so excited to blog. This would be my diary. (aside from Twitter and Instagram) . Before I end my first blog because I’m kinda sleepy (3:24 AM), I shall leave you with a quotation I love by Mother Teresa
“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”
