Without Further Technical Difficulties…
Hello all! I, of course, had some difficulties getting my introduction posted but finally – it’s here!
I’m Carolyn Soto but I usually just go by Carrie. I’m a sophomore at BMC and a recently decided English major with a minor in Psychology. I came to Bryn Mawr as a Psych major but found that I was falling in love with the English classes and feeling very lukewarm about the Psychology classes. I took my first Gender and Sexuality class last semester and was a little overwhelmed with all of the theoretical texts we read so often. So far this class is proving to be much more interesting and less heavy in theory, or at least the most difficult kind.
I’ve never been very interested in technology. Being an only child, and a very feminine one at that, I didn’t spend much if any time playing video games in any way, shape, or form. I was actually hard pressed to remember my first moment of technology, it seems that my mother and I lived in the stone age for quite awhile.
I feel, however, that our generation has grown up with rapidly evolving technology, going from one new and shiny machine to the next. I wonder if this ever changing technology has created a different environment for us to grow up in. Has the constant demand for the newest gadget created a new divide between genders?
