A Note Before Reading: Over the past few weeks, there has been an issue regarding the private mobile server for my school computers (Including my school Gmail account) meaning that I have not been able to log into the administrative services for the blog outside of school. I do plan on continuing to update my blog in these upcoming weeks, up until I leave for China 9as I will not have any internet access while there.)
What is the one thing that we see every day, the one piece of technology that is always there. Many would argue the smartphone is this one crucial innovation, the one thing that we rely on every day. However, I would (to an extent) argue that it is actually the car, the common thing that brings us from place to place that we use almost every day. Over the past two weekends, I have spent over thirty hours sitting in a classroom learning to drive, and although I found almost none of it enjoyable, I would now say that it was worth it. Besides the fact that I was legally obligated to take the class, I am happy that I now know how to drive as it means that I will not only have a better understanding for when I can drive, but that I will also be eligible to take my permit test when I am 16 and return from my trip to China.
