Culture: My Definition

 

When I think about culture, I can't help but think of computers. I believe I am fortunate to have grown up in a technological generation where computers play a large role in everyday life. Ever since I was little, I have always been intrigued by technology. I was the type of kid that would love to take things apart to see how it looked inside and try to figure how it all worked. After opening up many devices to have a "peek" at how things worked inside I would take on the task of putting it back together and hoping it works.

 

Computers have changed the way we go about doing even simplest tasks and with the invention of the internet, life just got so much easier. When I was a Junior in High School I took a class called Telecommunication & Networking. This was my "first" computer class, and my attribute my major in college as well as other things to that one class. Although, I didn't make the best grades (mostly due to not reading and doing bad on the quizzes) I made up for it on the exams. While in this class, I learned the basic principles of computers. At the end of the year, I received an A+ Certification. It's an entry level certification but basically means I know the hardware/software parts of a computer.

 

I believe culture is defined as what makes up your surroundings and how you were brought up. I had a cousin that had to have everything, and so naturally the first computer I saw (I beleive) was at his house. Naturally being an older cousin, he wouldn't let me use it much but I would suffice with just sitting down next to him and watch him use the computer. Despite not owning a computer til about almost 8th grade, I feel like they have always been part of my life and who I am.
