The Internet has become our on-stop link to the world 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I cannot imagine living without Internet access in my home. I can go without a cell phone service, I think I could live without TV, but the one thing I think I need more than anything else, is the Internet.
No matter where I am, home, work, across the world, or at school, the Internet gives me 24/7, instant access to all the information I could ever want. I can find out what is going on in my hometown, I can stay up on what’s happening around the world. I am a huge sports fan (short for fanatic), and if I really want, I can find out who one the Cricket match in South East Asia. The possibilities are truly endless.
So here are my top 3 reasons why I cant live without the Internet.
Reason 1: Sports
Whether it is the NBA, NFL, college football or really any other sport that is even remotely interesting, The Internet allows me to be constantly updated on sports news as it happens. I can find out scores, see highlights, find out about trades, and injuries as they happen. And if you haven’t noticed, now is the high season for Fantasy Football. When it’s all said and done, the Internet keeps me up to date with all the sports information I can handle and that’s why I love it!
Reason 2: Social Networking
The days of long distance phone services are not over, but the Internet has made it possible to keep your bills a little lower when it comes to staying in touch with your family and friends across the world.
Whether it is Facebook, MySpace, or just your everyday email, the Internet has provided an inexpensive avenue to help you build and maintain the relationships that I care about. I can chat with friends who are half way across the world, send a message to my sister in D.C, or just shoot a quick email to my wife just to say hi. I love the Internet, because it helps me stay in touch with the people I care about.
Reason 3: Shopping
Last week I found a jacket I had been looking for since 2006. I have been to stores, made phone calls, checked out thrift shops, and done virtually everything I could think of to find this jacket. Finally, I looked on EBay, found the jacket I had been looking for in fifteen minutes, and bought it for about $ 30 less than I thought I was going to have to pay for it. It showed up on my doorstep a few days later, and I am actually wearing it right now.
What is not to love about that?
