I knew that it was a cool thing to be able to look online for things I needed for school when the internet came out and I was in high school. The internet was still basic and we had to use a dial up to get the phone line to work with our computer, I used to look at things like https://www.theteflacademy.com/what-is-tefl to find out what things were. I did not know what I was going to do with all of that information at my finger tips. I knew that it was going to be a while before we finally got to know the internet but that it was going to provide a lot of things for us. I did not realize at the time just how much the internet was going to change everything that was in our lives and even how we live and do things every single day.
If you told me that we were going to be spending time on our phones having access to everything in an instant than I would have said that you were crazy. The advances in technology have been so fast and so furious that it is hard to sit and actually think about all of the things that have happened in this life time. I was really happy that there were so many different things to see on the internet. I was one of the few people who used the early internet services to meet other people. I met my first husband on the internet and I met my second husband on the internet as well. I had a great time with getting to meet new people that were from around the world and it made it feel like the world was a much nicer place with great people on it.
