Difference of email vs post office

Well, besides the fact we live in this amazing world with an abundance of technology so email is completely accessible from anywhere and anytime. Best part yet, its FREE! You sign up for a free account with any email provider, and boom. You can make contact with anyone in the world at any time. Whether they read it and care is a different story. Post office mail you have to pay for postage, paper, envelope. Spend time and effort to learn the address of the person you are trying to contact with your letter, and then take it to a post office, or drop off location. From there, it can take days to reach your location. You spend more money, it gets there faster, but rarely faster than next day. While the plus side to post office, if you make a simple spelling mistake with the address, there is a good chance it will still get to the correct location. With email, if you make even 1 spelling mistake, the mail will not be received on the opposite end. In fact, if it is sensitive informati…

The time this guy read us his resume...

So, this guest speaker...what to say. It just seemed like a nonstop story of the things he has learned and done. It honestly felt like he was reading his resume and bombing a job interview. Not really sure what his main point of coming was, besides saying that you can make a business out of anything. His books seemed kinda cool though, I do like sci-fi books.

I wish I was being sarcastic too, but this was so dry, uninteresting, and just didn't feel like it related in any way aside from his connection with the professor. OH! His name is Eric something, I found that much. At the end he just went on about this business his wife and he started. It went straight advertisement mode from that point on...like, dude. We paid enough just to sit in the room and attempt to learn, not try to invest in your new "nonprofit" business. Every…

What I want from this class...

Well, how to start. Probably with a bit of sarcasm, so I wouldn't mind a passing grade from the class. Ya know, all the credits that are available. I want there to be no blogs, because just typing this is painful because who blogs anymore? But hey, new experiences right? Maybe I might learn to hate something new. That's what college is all about, trying and hating new things. Right?

     In all seriousness though, I would like to learn something that I was not aware of, and find it interesting enough to stick. I love random facts, and so far in the class there has been some randomness brought up, which actually pulls my interest in. The beginning of the class with the whole "whats new with technology" bit, is what I am referring to. I want to feel like the money spent for the class was worth it, and that I can use what I learned to help influence some aspect of my life, whether it be work or a decision. I wouldn't mind a few more Star Trek conversations to p…
