DOES TECHNOLOGY MAKES US MORE INTROVERTED?.

The community as a whole makes use of different technology for so many purposes, they are found in the hands of students, teachers, engineers, lawyers, bankers, accountants, and so on. Also these people are either introvert or extrovert, some are even both. But, the question is,” does technology makes us more introverted?” To me, it does makes us more introverted unless introverted depending on how often we use it, what we use it for and the technology itself.
     Let’s take an instance, in a class of both extrovert and introvert student, an assignment was given to them which would involve them do some finding about a particular place. These introverted students on their own gets the picture of the place through a digital camera,analyse the place, sit and thought, they try to view things happening in their own imaginary world, making deductions and inductions, exploring images in their head as if it were real, jotting down what they  think is right from their own perspective, Introverted students think alot in their own space so they have no problem with thinking. They type the information they have gathered from their thoughts on their laptops and forward them to their teachers. they are proven wrong though , they believe they are right. They become more introverted because they used few technologies and trusted their thought.
     Moreover, In their spare time they would read offline novels, take selfies, update their status on social networks, read posts on the internet without commenting, buy what they think is best for them on the internet. They isolate themselves from people, never forgetting their phones or camera. They are also found playing games with their phone or taking pictures with their camera. They get more introverted because of the way they use technology.
     Further more, students who are introverts because their own thoughts and feelings are always taken for granted in reality whenever they spend some time with people, thus, end up becoming less introverted online. They would always upload, comment, chat and post their feelings and thought on one or the other on the internet, there by creating an avenue to express themselves and spend more time with people on the internet. These make them less introverted because of how often she uses it even though they are introverted in reality.
     In another case, an engineer who is working on a project with so many other engineers would use big technologies which are large and complex. This will require them to spend time together and get things done accurately on the project. Now they’re extroverts, cause, not just an engineer’s thought but all is needed to run the machines, But this engineer is an introvert in the use of his mobile and personal computer to compute his own thoughts on how to build his personal machine without the help of any other engineer. He locates where the needed materials are and buys them electronically just to build his own machine even without any one knowing.
     In conclusion, the use of technology can make us either extrovert or more introverted individuals depending on how they are used in the hands of individual and the technology

I miss y’all:(

We got home
i knew Sister Flo was home already,i washed my legs outside
and quietly placed my messy sandals beside the pail.
  “Bolade,bawo ni? Fufu and okro is on the stool for you and Subo,I’m coming”
Sister Flo didn’t bother to hear my answer before she dashed out, i was happy
though, it meant freedom till she and mama comes back home,the joy of fufu Consumption filled me,i rushed into the room the children, shared,i quickly removed my uniform,i was in my red,saggy pants,the chilly wind blew inside and waved past my nose,it smelled of sand and rain,i quickly ate my food and rinsed ny mouth with water,its Friday,as teacher Sandra said, which means no school for two days, the riverside will be full and Femi would definitely be there

Give it a title

The wet and clazlyish ground kept holding back My new leather sandal
which Mama just bought,As i frowned and murmured,trying to lift my
tiny legs,i almost cursed the

rains,staring at my now messy,leather sandal,
the sandal i had used to ‘buga’ in school just this week.
Subomi whistled “mama and sister flo will show you pepper today”
and i turned back,his own sandal was in his hand,he clunged to his nylon
bag that contained his book,i felt stupid realising that i should
have held my leather sandal in my hands,i heard Subomi laugh with
his frog-like voice,the clay sticking to the bottom of my sandals begged to be
throwned at him, i snapped at him and gave him a ‘you will see’ look…..

The weather was cloudy, looked like heaven wants to send down the rain, My Little sister sat on the floor, with two of her friends holding her shoulder and gently rocking her, she didn’t look up when I walked past her but I heard her murmur.
Our sitting room has not really changed, but I felt choked, the white walls ever shining, the tiles clearly showed my reflections, the white ceiling looked free from the little Web the small but mighty spiders weave, the sitting room is still the same, Uncle Deji and few of the extended member stood up when they saw me,I looked into Uncle Deji’s eyes,he was about to say something when i started walking towards my mother’s room,The hallway brought back bloody memories,i shut my eyes to chase them back

Mouth sealed.

“Should we be talking about that?”
Aunty Ibina said in  a loud whisper,i quickly scanned the faces of everyone on my row and i saw a group of smirking teenagers,I smiled,we know.
  We were in the church,it was a service for teens and youths,it was a question and answer time,an issue about sex popped up and it was obvious that the officials were trying to avoid this question,the air was thick and smelled of nervousness.
I heard a giggle behind me,another one at my far left,my friend nudged me,i knew looking at her would bring out a loud,uncontrollable laughter,i nudged her back,everyone in the room was waiting for the answer when one of the officials came forward to the podium.
“Refreshments will be served soon”
  I shaked my head,why is everybody acting so mysterious,why do people avoid an issue that could have helped alot of people?
