Week #7: Internet
By: Karissa Louie
When I was younger and had more time, I enjoyed playing games online- especially games associated with Neopets or the many various games on Facebook. I have also used the internet to shop for various items such as clothes and accessories. I do know somebody who has developed an addiction to playing on the internet. She cannot stay off her phone, she is on it constantly and she never lets it out of her hand even when she sleeps. It makes it very hard to hang around her because I cannot carry a conversation with her because she is always on her phone. Personally, I believe it affects her life because she does not have the social capabilities kids our age should have and her priorities are skewed because of her constant addition of being on her phone. Some of the games she enjoys playing include, Myvegas and Farmville.
