Hi Everyone! I apologize for the lack posts lately. I've been super busy with studying for final exams. With that said, I have decided to take a hiatus until Friday (6-11-10). See you all then!
In the meantime, I will leave you with some pictures of these lovely sandals my mom got me for my birthday a while back.

I also wanted to share with you guys this interesting article on excessive Internet use. It's kind of ironic that I'm posting this on here.
"Excessive Internet use can lead to social isolation, depression and failure at work or school. Some people — particularly those who were isolated to begin with — have forged healthy friendships by meeting kindred souls online. But using the Internet too much can hurt face-to-face relationships. And psychologists say an increasing number of people are using the Internet so obsessively that they are ruining their marriages and careers. In short, “the more hours people use the Internet, the less time they spend with real human beings,” said Norman Nie, a political scientist at Stanford University who was the principal investigator for the study. Nie asserted that the Internet was creating a broad new wave of social isolation in the United States, raising the specter of an atomized world without human contact or emotion."

I can see where this person is coming from because if you really think about it, technology really does play a big role in our everyday lives. Especially nowadays. However, even though anything is possible, I don't believe that we will ever get to the point of having absolutely no human to human interaction. It's still scary to think about though, because I personally spend a lot of time on the internet for school work as well as social purposes. What is your take on this matter?
