I'm currently taking Introduction to Psychology.
I read about a way of researching called "confirmation bias" and I loved it. I honestly love applying it to anyone and everything.
To relate it to my technology interests, to those who say technology is bad for students, or maybe the poison of our youth, I think you may have confirmation bias. This wretched way of researching is when one only remembers what confirmed their bias and forgets the rest.

I like technology, I think it's good and helpful and useful and amazing.
I also like Psychology, and look- I've combined the two. :) Haha
I have nothing else really to say, so continue on with your day- thanks for stopping by!
