My Daily Activity
I started my day by first looking at my cell phone. My phone was so bright it almost blinded my eyes. After letting my eyes adjust I saw that my girlfriend had texted me, and I sent her a good morning text. After sending her a text I realized I have already started my digital day.
After getting out of bed I went to grab my car keys to head my way to school. It was pitch black, and all i wanted was for my keys to scream out to me. After fumbling to try and find my keys I pulled out my Ipod to use some light so I could see. I finally found my keys and while I had my Ipod out I checked to see if anyone had posted anything on instagram.
After getting completely ready for school, and as I was walking out the door I forgot one of my favorite drinks. I reached in the refrigerator and grabbed an ice cold Monster Assault. I reached on the cap and twisted it, and it popped so loud it woke everyone up in the neighborhood. I reached out and took a picture and posted it on instagram. I realized as said in the lecture hall that anyone could see that picture I just had posted.
Driving to school is one of my favorite things to. I am with my friends and we always like to have the music as loud as possible. My friends are always amazed on how loud my sub woofers are, and they decided they were going to post a video of them on YouTube. My friends jaw dropped in awe as my sub woofers were at full blast hitting almost a 155 decibels. Many people commented on the video my friend uploading, creating a digital background of everyone that posted a comment..
Pulling up in the parking lot blasting music is always fun, but when it comes to doing school work its always a priority. My laptop is where I do most of my homework, not only because I can access the internet very easily, but because I can type faster than I can write making me finish my homework assignments a lot faster. Usually the first thing I do when I log on at school is check my grades on power parent. I smiled as bright as the sun when I saw that I had received a perfect grade on my math test.
After I get home from school the first thing I do is set my stuff down and go to my computer. My computer is different from my laptop because it can play any game at max settings. I usually unwind by playing for an hour or so with my friends after school. We use Skype to talk to each other so we know where we are at in a game and what we are doing. As Mrs. Young said in her presentation even using basic applications such as Skype the government is still able to see what you are doing.
I'm not one who just likes to sit inside all day and play video games. I like to go outside and fix cars and such. My dads Camaro is one of my favorite cars to work on and drive because it is so fast. We have a go-pro camera where we can record what we do and post it on YouTube. My dad and I have to answer many questions on what people comment on the videos. YouTube is a huge part of our digital DNA because we spend a lot of time on it.
After I got done fixing up and driving the Camaro I went to go play one of my most favorite games. Golf is a game I love because i'm good at it. Me and my brother usually go almost everyday after school and our dad usually meets us out at the golf course after work. I use my cell phone to call him to make sure he is still planning on coming and if he isn't then me and my brother know to play without him. My favorite round of golf was when I got a hole in one because barely anyone is able to achieve one their whole life and I was able to get one.
When I get home after a long day I usually just sit on the couch and watch TV. My favorite channels to watch are the discovery channel and the history channel. I like it when my cat jumps on my lap because she is very friendly and she keeps me warm. Me and my cat will just sit there for hours just relaxing and watching TV. I was watching this police show where they were trying to find a criminal by tracing his cell phone. When they found him tracing his cell phone all I thought about was how that related to Mrs. Youngs presentation.
Digital DNA to me is a very big part of my life. I'm not saying its a good thing or a bad thing, but even when i don't think about it my digital background changes everyday because of it. Everyone now a days has made up there digital DNA even by just getting on YouTube you create a background. Other things such as using your cell phone to use an app or even to just make a call puts things on the internet that you can't get back. So overall I like my digital DNA because I think before I post, but for other people it will hurt them down the road.
