In english class, we recently read The Great Gatsby. In the book there are many people that go out of the house, spend time together, and just have a good time. However, in our society, I feel like not many kids go outside and that they would rather just stay home. And also we don’t really talk to each other face to face, but we would rather instead text it. I feel like we are slowly forgetting how to talk to each other and keep the conversation going. I know a lot of people who can talk to people so easily over text messages, but once they see each other in person, it is as if they forgot how to talk. Technology has slowly taken over our universe and none of us will know what to do if we didn’t have it. This book takes place in the 20’s where smartphones didn’t exists so everyone had to get out of the house and talk to each other. However, in my generation, we were born with smartphones, and so it is basically a necessity in our life that we have to live with. It is honestly crazy how much has changed over the past hundreds of years. Sometimes I wish I can go back in time and experience the years without technology myself because I want to be able to interact with other people without relying on a gadget.
