Ten Reasons Why Technology Is Beneficial To our Success

Today’s generation has a bad rap for constantly being in touch with our technology; however, what many do not realize is how truly beneficial our technology is. From scheduling the due dates for assignments and meetings to finding a job, technology has improved our daily lives for the better. Below are the top ten ways technology has improved our lives.

1. Google Maps

Before GPS systems, we had to ask for directions before we went somewhere or we had to bring a map. If you were lost, you often had to find someone who could offer directions, and it was not likely that everyone knew where every popular destination was located. Now, with the tap of a screen, one can find their way almost anywhere, and know exactly how long it will take to get their.

2. Uber and Lyft

Sometimes one needs a ride to a popular destination. Calling a taxi can take time, and it is also expensive. Uber and Lyft offer rides in less than ten minutes, and they are usually less expensive than a traditional taxi.

3. Group Messages

While annoying, group messages allow people to always be in touch and stay informed of upcoming events and outings with their groups.

4. Calendars

With calendar applications, one can be notified when they have a meeting scheduled without having to rely on a paper planner.

5. Social Media

Because of social media, the world is smaller than ever. With the tap of a button, one can communicate with family or friends next door or around the world.

6. Ebooks

Ebooks make it easier for many readers to access the books they love. Audio books allow anyone to enjoy their favorite novel or class textbook, even on long road trips.

7. Smart Watches

Smart watches, such as the Apple Watch, allow the user to see their phone notifications without having to look at their phone. These also allow people to track their daily exercise, which is a popular activity among many.

8. Smart TVs

Watching TV has gotten even easier. Instead of searching for your favorite TV show, one can watch it on demand.

9. Emergency Notification

If their is bad weather in the area or or another emergency, more people are informed than ever before.

10. There’s An App for That

Today, their is an app for almost everything—news, weather, games, and email.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
