At the stroke of 12, a new day is about to begin, and whether I am ready for it or not I will have to awaken from my slumber in the morning. Work gets me out from bed, and whether it’s an office job to a self-starter job to even a personal/social/family job—the concept of “work” keeps me living and breathing each day.
Technology has really shaped how we have interacted with others near and far, for better or for worse, and working with technology has kept me connected. Working towards a dream career where networking through social media helps build rapport. Working on a dream career without the use of social media but rather through physical contacts who would be the gatekeepers into a job or within a desired career field. Working on any loose ends with family and friends so that there would be understanding and compassion felt by all. It’s even working to have a dual life of health and happiness in monitoring the time spent with the world wide web and time spent offline where I would want to achieve the ultimate goal of being happy.
I was presented with Dr. Seuss’s book “Oh, the Places You’ll Go” as a graduating middle school present, and am reminded of the wisdom of having enough confidence in knowing of the wrong paths to take. I was again reminded of this sound advice and the book again when with my peers from the Multicultural Office, graduated from community college. In years since I have seen that holding and reading the physical copy of the book versus a YouTube rendition of it was the best way to move forward!
“A computer would deserve to be called intelligent if it could deceive a human into believing that it was human.” according to Alan Turing who is considered as a pioneer in the modern day discipline of computer science. Working with the best choices—whether it includes social media or brainpower– defines our next steps in life, and why we ought to wake up every day.
