In the Beginning

Image

I remember being seven years old and sitting in the basement with my mom. We were using Windows 95 with the old dial-up connection. I remember hearing that annoying noise that reminded me of using the house phone in the shower with a bad connection. Of course using the internet meant that we couldn’t use the house phone, but I was still excited to be able to use it.

Some mistakes I kept making were that I kept closing the browser on accident and I would lose everything I had been looking for so I had to start all over.  I was really proud when I was finally thirteen and old enough to join MySpace (yes I waited til the age I was supposed to be) and made my first social account.  I wasn’t really allowed to interact with other kids my age in person, so having internet “friends” was a big deal to me, however short-lived it may have been.

As the years went by I was often grounded from the Internet so I didn’t get a chance to get used to it the way others did my age.  So I find that in college where there is heavy use of websites and Internet I find myself several steps behind.  But that’s okay because I’m forcing myself to get over it and embrace frustrating technology and concepts like I said I would in my last blog.

I find myself easily frustrated sometimes with technology, because I was deprived of it as a child.  But I want to get used to it and like it because I really do like it I just want to like it more and catch up to everyone else.
