Its 2013! Can you believe it? I know I cant. I remember when we were about to hit the year 2000-the millenium where everyone was worried the world was going to come to a standstill, computers would stop working, electricity would cut out and phones would not function! Yet here we are in the year 2013, still going strong!
When I was at primary school, aged about 7, I remember the computers were huge BBC ones, and if you owned a computer you were mega rich, with a game that said what you typed, so as kids we would write things like "poo!" and giggle for ages! Where TV programs would stop working so we had a picture of a girl surrounded by colourful squares! In secondary school at the age of 14 nokia had a brick as a phone, where all you could do was text, phone and play one game-snake! The best game ever! Internet was starting to get big and msn messenger was the social networking site for everyone! Email was now popular and everyone was excited to recieve an email from friends during technology lessons! We were wild I know! Then came facebook where a whole new world arrived, no more private life! Photos, statuses and your personal life splattered for everyone to see, goodbye to letters and face to face convos! We also had a toothbrush that didnt require electricity! How life changes! Technology is insane ! I remember watching a film where they touched screens to access information, I thought that was so futuristic! But here I am touch screen typing on my phone! We can snap all our moments on one device as well as access the internet, text and make calls! Whats next? A phone that flies to you when you click your fingers so we dont have to move a muscle?
Another change is people, my grandparents who are no longer here, we lose loved ones and gain loved ones, life is hard but joyful too, dont take those for granted and appreciate all your blessings for you never know whats round the corner.
Happy New Year everyone, I wish you all peace, love and happiness.
