Boys will be Girls

Check out this HILLARIOUS and informative video. I think it is completely true in come cases, and completely false in others. It basically is a lesson on how men think women communicate and our ways when it comes to relationships.

Texting=DISORDER

Above is a YouTube video talking about how texting is a problem, or a disorder. I am a proud “texter” but I would never see it ¬†turning into a public health issue, nor do i see it as a concern. Texting, yes, is easy and fun today. But in our society today I believe texting, or emailing is a better way to communicate in some situations. Our society thrives off of it.

The Social Network

Trailer

Going into this movie I thought it was going to be great. I had no idea how much of a genius and “confident” person it took to create Facebook. This movie to me, shows the “in” and “out” of media in society. This movie proved how quickly something can be transported across the internet. This movie was amazing and I believe anyone who has a Facebook account should see it and tell me what they thought about it.

Email is rapid and cost efficient, and is not a substitution for one-on-one communication.

Proposals must follow a logical, well-organized format.
