What is the internet?

I feel like the internet can be described differently for each person based off their experiences, the need for it, and what they get from the internet.

I feel like I have a love-hate relationship with the internet. I love it because you can easily gather so much information literally on anything!!!!! I love that I can keep up and stay connect with my friends who live in a different country! I appreciate that the internet creates a network for us to expand on and grow as a person and/or with a business.

However where I don’t enjoy the internet is I feel like it consumes me and my life. Especially in this time of the pandemic I realized how much it consumes mine/our lives. From it being the only line of communication at times, to being one of our only sources of entertainment our lives were taken up daily on the internet. However, the benefit of the internet allowed us to stay connected with others and the world and allowed our minds to be distracted during this very unique time.

At the end of the day the internet to me is something that provides information for anything and everything when needed. It is also something that allows us to stay connected among the world and with each other in a huge network. Though the internet is used wrongly by some, the majority of the time the internet is used for better and the right reasons.
