Technology has taken over. My brother just turned ten and one of his birthday presents was a CELL PHONE. Why would he need one of those? Society has seriously gotten lazy. Instead of going over to someone’s house and asking them to hangout, most people text them. I’m one of those people. The only reason I keep a cell phone is because none of my friends have house phones anymore and that’s my only way of getting ahold of them. I don’t have a license either or I’d just drive to their house. Instead of knocking on someone’s door, someone would text them or call them to say they’re outside. Another thing that really bothers me is how in school, we are on computers all the time. Want a picture on your report? Print the picture off the internet. What happened to drawing? I’m not saying that technology doesn’t help because it does, but what happens when we can no longer use any of it? The world would be helpless.

When I have kids, I’m going to buy phones and computers for them. I’ll buy them whatever technology they want. I won’t let them forget about life outside of it, though. Hopefully, by the time I decide to have kids, technology will be less important. Every time I think of the future, I think of the Disney movie “Wall-E”. In this movie, the humans were in floating chairs and they were really fat. If technology gets as bad as that, I will stay inside my house forever. I rather not get fat and float around just because I’m too lazy to walk. Something needs to be done about this issue very soon. I would want society to fix the problem before it’s too late.
