Technology plays an extremely large role in my life whether I realize it or not. It seems that using my computer to talk to friends, listen to music, do research and check assignments have all just become a way of life for me. My phone not only serves as a form of communication, mainly through texting, but it is my map for when I’m lost and my answer when I am unsure (Google). It also allows me to store pictures, know when the next light rail is coming, listen to music, add and subtract, check the ski report and so much more. My phone is very much a part of who I am not because of how much I use it but of what I can use it for. The same can be said about my computer, instead of having to play a separate radio I can play my music on it while talking to friends or typing a paper. I have always known how technology has been important in my life, but I never realized how much I seem to rely on it.
