How does Globalization effect my life?

The positives- Globalization effects my life on a daily. Just think to yourself, how does globalization effect me on a school day. I wake up almost everyday by my alarm clock on my phone, which used technology.I then eat breakfast and check the weather and see whats going on around me in the world. Then its time to head to the bus stop my mom drives me down where i get picked up by the bus. The bus we use is provides by the towns people paying taxes. Once I arrive at school I go to class where im influenced with new information,culture,ethnics,working and communication skills. Then comes lunch time where I socialize the most cause that's when I have the most free time. Then to end the day I check my social media on the bus ride home then once im home i do my homework.

The negatives- The effects that globalization has on my life aren't always the best. Most people my age focus way to much time on social media and texting which leads to their phones. Phones have been a huge part in my life and others as well. Some times I feel myself spending way more time on my phone rather then my family.I use my phone for school,social media, friends, music almost everything. When me and my friends hangout we are always on our phones . The society I grew up in has a huge impact on our living. These are many examples of globalization.
