I’d rather spend about $100 buying books instead of purchasing some online text for $50.
Last year, my psych professor mentioned how nowadays, people keep grocery lists and phone numbers in their mobile instead of trying to remember them.
I don’t want technology to take over my world (more than it already is). I don’t want to have to depend on the internet for every single thing I need.
I don’t want my brain to “rust.”
I don’t want to be one of those people who feel their world is coming to an end because they can’t fetch what they need on their phones or the internet because the service is down.
I mean, I’d rather depend on pen and paper.
First of all, as if my eye sight wasn’t already bad enough, all my classes have readings and quizzes online. The agenda, calendar, readings, announcements, they’re all online. And here I am, making trips to the computer lab and printing out the pages so I can organize it in a folder with high-lighters.
There’s just something beautiful about words on paper, ya’ know? People who like pen-palling will understand. It’s annoying when people ask why I rather hand write a letter than e-mailing.
Anyway, I’m going through my class announcements online with a notebook in front of me so I can record what’s due when. Sigh…
