Born into technology.

Born into technology.

by Jacob

I as a youngster was born into a world of technology, but hearing my grandmas stories about the world before iPhones, I wish I had been around to know how to do things the old fashioned way, and to be able to go back to a time period where your friends wouldn't make fun of you for what kind of phone you have, or what your financial status was. These days, the only thing any teens my age care about is the latest pop song or the newest selfie on Instagram. It's very frustrating to me to have to constantly listen to improper grammar and slang. Such as "bae" "or nah" "ratchet" or all the other teenage nonsense. I appear to be the only teen to feel this way in my town.
