Distraction or fun



ARGUMENT: Students should cut back on visual entertainment, because of occurring problems in our lives that are causing get damage. I am one of those who are guilty of wasting time, that affectes my social life as well as academic life. One of my experiences was a long time ago in a place far, far away, well a actually about an hour away, I just got back from football, tired and sweaty, staggering into my families’ home den, looking for a pleasant place to set. As I entered I found the little black stress box and also a nice landing place, the coach. Slumping into the nice fluffy coach I unknowingly found the remote control and flipped on the television, and just at that moment my family started to show up, sisters with their cute girls all wanting to play games with me. I just sat there not paying attention, because I was so fixated on the TV. I sat there, watching my little stress box until they all went home. I missed a great opportunity to have a blast with my little nieces, just to finish a TV show. I just touched one misfortune but there are others.

  1. This is a good idea, but needs to be more developed. I am just going to throw out some ideas for you that you may or may not want to use in your paper. You can also add in how it takes away from relationships, physical activity, and homework. I also know that general authorities (Elder Bednar) have talked and given us guidence regarding technology and the damage it can do to us. Or you can even go as far as how it is effecting our generation and children's behavior (I know you could find a lot of info about that online). Your personal story was good though.
