Tech savvy generation can still make mistakes
If you have ever been punched in the stomach, then you will understand the feeling I got today when I realized I had lost all of my work from the past year on my USB drive.

Technology makes it easy for us to keep track of our lives, as we are the tech savvy generation. Don’t be fooled by that title, because we still make mistakes.

We still need our parents, even in college
I began my education at the age of four. “Eigna” was how I spelled my name. My pre-school teacher called it dyslexia, but my mother told her I was fine.
Of course, my pre-school teacher thought she knew best and wanted to make me stay an extra year to perfect my name spelling. My mom said no and told the teacher I would grow out of it. (more…)
