Laptop Crazy

Laptop Crazy | Computer Technology

Laptop

My fingers twitch with anticipation as I rip into the shiny Christmas wrapping paper, as I peal back the layers of paper, the sharp edges of a card board box protrude out of the edges of the paper. The last of the paper is shredded away and within the box lays a smooth black new laptop from Toshiba. My seventh grade heart started pounding with excitement to use the new laptop.

Today, as I open the same computer my senior year, to begin my first Varsity debate, the keys in the computer are cracked like old teeth and the top and bottom are splitting apart, creaking like an ancient wooden staircase, but the laptop is still an essential part of my strategy. Hidden within the broken creaking bolts of the tired old Toshiba is all my cases for Varsity debates as well as rebuttal information and additional research.

Besides debate and speech activities, my computer over the last five years has been a vital part of my study habits. Throughout my childhood, I struggled with dyslexia coupled with atrocious handwriting. The combination, left most of my writing a simple sea of jumbled gibberish that was incoherent due to spelling mistakes and sloppy letters. Once I opened the computer though my seventh grade year, the technology provided me with a method for producing more coherent writing and has made me into a better student.

In the long term, I hope to pursue a career in business or law, in both fields my computer will remain a vital tool in my work. The simple laptop can help me to connect with customers, future employers and investors in my future for years to come. Similarly to how my current computer connects me with students, parents and teachers for running my own tutoring program, as I progress with my future career, my computer will continue to help me connect with new opportunities.

Twenty years from now, I’ll take out a computer with shiny new keys that opens as quietly as a mouse, and has an airtight security code to protect all my important work information. Beyond a fire wall of specialized passwords inside the new sophisticated laptop lie the secrets of large corporations I defend or the bank statements of my own new company illustrating a progressive growth pattern in my company’s profit margins. My laptop will continue to be a vital part of my organization process whether I’m creating my own startup from the ground up, or working within large firms, the computer will always be an important storage and security device for my important information. In the long run, I know that laptops will be as vital to my life in the future as they are right now, and as they were on that simple Christmas morning six years ago when I tore into the Toshiba that I still use today.

My Laptop is My Lifeline

My Laptop is My Lifeline on Campus & at Home

My Laptop is My LifelineThe world is utilizing technology more and more and this is most obvious when walking on a college campus. In my freshman year of college, I bought the same supplies for university as I did for high school pens, pencils, and notebooks for each class and within the first week I realized I could return nearly all those supplies because all I needed was my Laptop.
Technology in the college classroom goes far beyond writing papers and power point presentations. The entire academic process from applying to school, registering for classes and completing coursework is done online. College students are so dependent on the internet that when the Wi-Fi on campus becomes overloaded and shuts down students will use their cellular data plans to go on Twitter to express their outrage over this injustice because they were just about to finally start that essay that they were assigned a week ago.
Even as a strong advocate for the old-fashion pen and paper I quickly realized that my laptop computer is going to be the heart of my academic and professional life. Being involved in so many clubs and having a rigorous academic schedule requires that I create very meticulous agenda. I have several events, classes, and meetings that come at me from various people covering time frames from tomorrow to next year. I absolutely need my computer to keep track of everything I must do on campus or at home. Being able to stay organized allows me to have both academic achievement and involvement in a variety of on campus activities.
In addition to being able to organize my life I use my laptop Apps to complete the tasks I put in my planner no matter where I am. While sitting at work I can email questions to my professors and while eating lunch I can both complete my homework and turn it in. The diversity of tasks that I can accomplish from a study room in the library with nothing, but my computer and an internet connection is extraordinary, homework, current events and of course a quick Netflix study break is all achieved without moving or getting something out of my backpack.
Moreover, one of the most stressful parts about being a college student is wondering how I will be able to pay for that $10,000 tuition. One quick search on my laptop and I can find thousands of scholarships to pay for school and hundreds of job applications, so I can pay my rent. This is the most important job my computer has because without this financial security all the work I put into my academics would be pointless but because of my laptop the only thing that keeps me up at night is that math test I have tomorrow.

Masterpieces Through Technology

Masterpieces Through Technology
Click Clickity Clack

Click…. click…. clack…. Clickity clack, the sound of buttons being pushed on keyboards across the world are the sound of artists creating masterpieces through technology.Without the click clacking of the keys, the future of illustration, design, and art would be as stark as a canvas that has never felt the stroke of a brush. My world would be bleak without the ability to pursue my creative passions. With the use of computer technology, and even better, a laptop, the world of creation could literally be at my fingertips at home, school, or at any given location where inspiration strikes.
Through the use of design programs, I could have my pallet and canvas with me at all times. As an art major, who has applied to the University of Arizona’s fine arts illustration and design program, this scholarship would be a huge asset in opening doors to the future. Not only would I be able to complete course work, do research, and pursue my love for design, I would be able to use a laptop to compile my portfolio, research scholarships, search and apply for jobs, and eventually reach my goal of completing my master’s degree in order to teach at a university as an art instructor. This gift of a laptop would continually be passed forward.
Not only would it benefit me, but it, the buttons, the keys, the click, click clacking on the keyboard, would be the keys that open the door of opportunity for me, as well as many others. As I move forward to being more self-reliant, and obtaining a job in a field that I love, I realize
that the only fulfillment in life is by helping, serving, and teaching others, so that they as well can become successful upstanding citizens. I am so grateful for those like you who offer help to those in need. If I am awarded this scholarship, it will be used to further my education, in order to reach a successful point in my life where I will then be able to give back in return.

Success isn’t reached in a day, just as a masterpiece isn’t created with one stroke of a brush, or one click of a keyboard. It is however reached through multiple failures, sweat, tears, hard work, millions of brushstrokes, and billions of click clickity clacks on the keyboard. In my pursuit to success, I would largely benefit from all that this scholarship has to offer. The use of a laptop would give me the tools I need to focus on my personal path to creating my own beautiful masterpiece in life. The world will be filled with the click click clicks, and the clack clack clacks of creation, as one more struggling student uses the keys to open the doors to her future.

Power of Computers

 Power of Computers in Eyes of a Student

Oftentimes, people in modern society do not truly appreciate the raw power granted to us by our inventions. This holds ever more true for computers and thereby laptops. We carry around these wonderful machines and take them for granted. The importance of such remarkable creations should not be undercut, as I hope to never do.

Power of ComputersThere are the obvious benefits of a word processor, namely the ease with which we can now create and edit long, complex documents; however, the limit of computers’ usefulness, of course, does not lie there, rather we gain the ability to do the previously unimaginable. There are simply unbelievable applications for computers that I feel only envy at not working with.

That being said, a task essential to any field of study is research. It matters not whether the aforementioned research is for an essay as simple as this one or serves as a basis for new hypotheses that may change everything, the byproduct of computers speaking with one another (i.e. the Internet) allows for innumerable amounts of information to be gathered and later viewed by anyone with access to the Internet.

For me in particular, it will allow me access to the meanings of very specific terms in German that evade the grasp of Google Translate or grant me the privilege of reading otherwise invisible papers discussing the elusive concept in question in enough detail that I can then create the term anew in English or vice versa. Furthermore, I can, through the masterpiece that is the computer, read ancient texts that would be otherwise non view-able by anyone but the highest ranked experts, such as the German Nibelungenlied, an epic poem discussing a dragon slayer and his vengeful wife. To be more specific, such works are, because of computers, available to people such as me in their original, both in text and in language.

However, rather oxymoronically, something helping someone in their studies is not always about facilitating their studying. If one cannot obtain a break from the books, that person will probably have a much harder time retaining the information or actually enjoying their life. In this respect, computers may be the most variable in their power. While they facilitate unbelievably difficult tasks, they also grant us down time. It is as the idiomatic expression goes: “work hard, play hard”. And what harder worker or harder player is there, if not the computer.
