The piece of equipment I would like to describe for you is a PC that my parents bought for me when I was in junior school, so I was about 11. I vividly remember when my Mum brought it home from the shop; the box was just enormous, I swear;it was nearly as big as I was. We unpacked it together and set it up. It was mostly black but had a mutli-coloured screen with some quite large speakers.
She bought it so that I could use it for my courses and studying, you know, to do some English essays or even Chinese ones. At the beginning, I think it was quite difficult to use, but I soon got used to it, I'm a clever girl that way even then, and often ended up teaching my parents how to do things too. To be honest, I also played quite a few games on it, but don't tell my folks that: it's a secret!!
As for how helpful it was, the word extremely comes to mind. I could often organise things like my assignments or my homework and often found that using the word-processor was much easier and convenient than writing by hand. Correcting things on paper was, and still is, a nightmare. I'm always wanting to change things and edit the text. It gets really messy when I have to write it, but when I can type it,it just allows me to make it neat and tidy. Over the years I've upgraded to a laptop,but my useage is still the same. My university course is very demanding and I'm often required to do copious amounts of research both in the library and on-line, so for me, it's invaluable.
I'd like to talk about my smartphone. I got my first one when I was about13 years old in high school. It was a birthday gift from my mother, which really surprised me. I remember that I was nagging my parents for months about this, and neither of them caved. So, when they gave me my first bit of technology it was a pleasant shock.
As for why I started using it, or more specifically wanting it, at the time, being a teenager I wanted what everyone else had. I figured I could also use it to play games,oops, I mean study really hard, HaHa. I would never use a smartphone for games.At least, thats what my mother thinks
For the first couple of days, if I'm honest, I had no clue about how to use it. I was just like a small baby with a new toy. I kept pressing all the buttons until something worked. In the end, I actually logged on to the internet to find some helpful books. After I had found some user manuals, I found it was intuitive to operate. By the end of the third day, I was a dab hand at the OS and was downloading educational software and showing my mother.
It was very throughout high school for my social life. I was able to keep in touch with, not only my family, but also my classmates using Apps like WeChat and WeiBo. I could also follow my favourite stars and see what they're up to. Somehow,I convinced my mother that this was part of my sociology research. I don't think she entirely believed me, but I'm not sure.
