I have been without a computer for quite some time now. This past weekend I finally have one again and it’s great. It is so much faster and easier on my hands to be able to type what I am working on. It is a lot easier all around to be able to work from it than it Is to work from my phone or to have to borrow a computer. I have started writing a few things on it and love how I don’t feel like the words I write can’t keep up with the thoughts. The stories are flowing at a quicker pace so hopefully I will have one finished soon. I have a children’s book nearly ready to go, now I’ll be able to put finishing touches on the illustrations since my illustrator this time around is computer illiterate.
While I am busy appreciating all that I can get done on my computer my oldest son was complaining about his. The high school now provides MacBooks for their students which is where all their textbooks are located. It is great in theory, the child has all their textbooks in one easier to carry laptop. It’s a lot easier on their backs. But if you don’t have internet at home (we do not) then it makes it impossible to get your work done after school. So every morning he is at school at least an hour early so he can use the WiFi there to complete his work or to study for a test. However yesterday the internet was down at the school for most of the day. This morning he requested that I drop him off the earliest possible which is an hour and a half before school starts. He usually loves having a computer and his textbooks on it because he can color the words to help his dyslexia however yesterday he wasn’t happy at all.
While computers are wonderful and they certainly help with a lot of things maybe some things shouldn’t be left to just computers.
Is there something that you find easier to do with a computer? Is there something you wish people wouldn’t use a computer for?
