This is taking a little getting used to….

Putting my thoughts out there for all to see is a little different. Just makes me think how different things are from when I was in college (1990-95). We didn’t even have internet until what ’94 or ’95ish? I don’t think I ever used it until ’96. David and I dated 3000 miles apart from NC to CA during those college years. Our only correspondence was via snail mail and very expensive long distance telephone calls. No cell phones, my land line bill was always at least $100. That was a lot of money back then, especially for a struggling college student. How things have changed. Back then, when I recorded my thoughts, I did it with a journal and a pen. Now, I navigate all over the computer and type it all. My children use what they call a smart board in school (they are 1st and 2nd graders). This smart board has replaced the chalk board. It’s a huge computerized touch screen. By fourth grade they will possibly be carrying their own laptops to school. This will replace the use of so much paper, which is good . But I wonder how much they’ll be missing out on by doing everything on the computer. Handwriting, like photography, is going to be a lost art. But on the other hand, typing is being learned at a very early age. I guess that’s a good thing. I don’t know, time keeps moving, and with that comes constant change. Just hoping I can keep up.

    I keep a hand-written journal too. That seems more therapeutic, I think. Writing is a feel-good thing. But then there are days when I journal and I want people to read what I’m thinking, so I blog 🙂 Plus, it’s a nice non-networking way to keep people up-to-date with us up here…

    I still write in a journal. There’s quite a bit that I think about that would never make my blog! It’s good to keep constantly moving forward. Besides, the more you write stuff on here as it comes along in your mind, the more material you’ll have if you ever decide to write a book or something. Just like singing, you do it the best you can whether you might fail or not.
