Technology has always been a mystery to me ever since I was a child.
Technological advances have excited me of course but always from afar. I can remember getting my first MP3 player one Christmas and handing it immediately to my brother to “figure it out.” Looking back on my experiences now, I can concisely say that I was a borrower in the realm of technology but not an owner.
Middle school was the time that I was also first introduced to high performing calculators. These seemed to overcomplicate the math that I was supposed to be learning. In fact, on tests days I often brought a four function calculator to complete my work because the Texas Instruments calculator left me confused and dismayed when completing simple calculations.
