“It can wait, life’s too short.”
Conversation is a beautiful thing within our society and yet, as time goes on, more and more people would prefer to text someone rather than having to meet up and have a face-to-face conversation with them.
Texting lacks the authenticity that conversation has in abundance and it is something that should never be of preference to an individual when given a choice between the two.
We are forced to wait patiently in the hope that our generation will realize it all sooner rather than later.
As I alluded to in my first blog post, the digital age that we live in is causing a lot of laziness within our society and the sooner we realize, the healthier and happier we will be.
A device should not have the power to cause you and/or others your life.

“Texting lacks the authenticity that conversation has in abundance and it is something that should never be of preference to an individual when given a choice between the two”. This particular statement is what drove me to research this inquiry topic. I found it extremely frustrating that this is the way our society is heading and wanted to find out more about the negative effects it can have on people’s lives. There is no denying that my topic has progressed in relation to where it began. My topic has become more specific in the sense that it is solely focusing on mobile phone use while driving. I decided to research this topic for the simple fact that it is causing several needless deaths, especially in young people of similar age to myself.
