How are you lovely people? I hope the day is taking another shape on you? For me, I woke up early to do all I needed to do and I am just lying on the cushion chair in the sitting room while typing this. I feel so happy because I was able to meet up half of my tasks for today. It feels so pleasant to spare time for yourself to rest that working brain of yours.
Let me ask; how was life before technology was introduced? I could remember when Dad was narrating how it used to be when he was still a youth. He was to go to the city of Lagos for the first time from the village to find greener pastures and that time, there was nothing like a phone or a computer. Everyone relied on a tool called "Pen" and a piece of equipment called "Paper" to write messages to their loved ones or to get information, but it usually takes months to get it delivered and they would have to keep waiting for reply and most times, they give up when there was no traces of any message coming to them.
This is awkward if I must say because in one way, it is dangerous especially having a family far away from you and when someone is sick and the only means to get some cash for treatment is through sending messages to them, but before the recipient would deliver, it is too late.
Then everything became civilized and phones and computers were introduced and it made everything easier and faster. Phone and computer are one of my favorites technological advancement.
With phones and computers, the internet and social media were born. WhatsApp, Instagram, Discord, Telegram, Facebook and the likes were created.
How would it feel for me to get up from my house to walk miles going to meet a friend just because I want to see him or her? Or I need to make an enquiry on something, will then get up finding answers when I know many people are daft and ignorant of many things. I can only rely on what I am being told without going more ways to seek for answers that suit me. But when these technologies were advanced, it became an easy thing where you could just stay in bed and get answers immediately. You need information, the internet is within our reach to go to instead of traveling to seek answers. With our phones and computers, we could search the internet to know what is going on in the world through daily news. We are let out of the world of ignorance because of the internet.
We could see ourselves through video calls and talk to ourselves discussing many things.
Then another favorite thing is Cars, Planes and Bikes
Let's take a flashback to the time when people would have to trek to a far place on foot. There was no means of transportation except riding on camels and donkeys. We know how the journey of the Israelites was then to get to the promised land. They had to trek on foot for many days and months before getting to their destination.
In the olden days, parents traveled by foot to get their goods and I can imagine how bad and tough it would be.
With the existence of cars, bikes and planes, many of us can reach our destination in no time. Traveling in cars, planes and public transport has made it easier and faster than going on foot to a journey that could last you days when with cars, or others, you easily and conveniently get to your station.
