Who would have thought 60 years ago that we would be able to have the world at the palm of our hands? Some would say that magic doesn’t exist but don’t you think that the internet itself is magic? Something invisible that has the answer to every question, pretty much like Aladdin and the magic lamp, but the only difference is that instead of the lamp, we rub our touch screens and whalaa! There is Siri, the genie of the iPhone asking ‘How can I help you’? Guess what, he isn’t like Aladin’s genie, he is much nicer, he doesn’t limit you to just three wishes. He has unlimited answers for you, well only if you have unlimited internet too, but hopefully you do, or else your life will be miserable!
We depend on the internet just as much as Aladdin depended on his magic carpet to explore the world, to feel free and to even find his true love, princess Jasmine. You might not find true love on the internet but you can try and here is how: Remember that hot boy sitting next to you in the lecture room? Chances are he is part of the Facebook group that was created for this module, so go and check! You got other options too, SnapChat, Instagram, Twitter.. you name it., just a click away! On social media you can find your crush, your friends, your favourite celebrity or you can share your pictures, your thoughts etc. Yes, isn’t that fascinating?! Life couldn’t get any easier.
My only advice is to be wise on the internet and be careful how you use it because trust me, your dad seeing your Insta DMs or your Twitter isn’t the worst that could happen to you!
