Monday Musings--Internet Connections


It's funny to think about my first EXPOSURE to the internet.  I was taking a German class in high school and for some reason my teacher felt we needed to learn to SURF online.  I had no idea how that little training would influence my life.  Much of my time every day is spent on the computer and a percentage of that time is on the internet.  I used to hate the idea of meeting people on the computer--SCARY!  Online dating, forget it.  Making friends, no way!  But things have changed so much over the last decade.  My daughter attends a preschool that I found with an online search, and her teacher is FABULOUS.  One of my BEST friends met me by answering an ad for guitar lessons that I had put online.  Yup, once again, I'm eating my words.

When the world changes, you have to change.  It's impossible not to.

How has the internet affected your life?

I just acquired a job I found via the internet. I don't know if I will like it, but I am going to try it for awhile at least. I start Thursday. :)

I thought you would like to know.

Every part of my life has had some growth due to the internet. Personally - have done online dating - HATE it! But love keeping in touch with family and friends thru social media tools. Also reaped tons of help for grad school assignments thru internet access. Professionally - my program would sink without it - everything is online - data tracking, reference checks, communication, webinars and teleconferences - you name it, the internet will be a part of it!
