It was the first day of my college. I had gone to attend the orientation before the classes began. The Director had already started his speech when I entered the hall. After talking about all the rules and regulations, he announced that this time they would be giving laptops to each and every student. I have always wanted a desktop/laptop. I tried so much before to convince my father to buy me one, but to no avail.
Today, I was happy and finally I was done with the whole begging thing for a desktop/laptop.
They handed the laptops to the students after a week. I remember that day. Nobody came out of their room for the whole day, not even to eat. Well, for me it was something new too and I have always wished to have one. I was glued to it.
For the first few weeks, the laptop was the source of entertainment for me. My college had a Wi-fi campus. So, all I did was download movies, videos and songs. I recalled the times when I used to watch the boring Indian serials at home because of my parents and my sister. It was like a joyous ride that I would have never had without my laptop.
I also downloaded games and started playing them. Two of my favorite games are Counter Strike 1.6 and Age Of Empires - The Conquerers. It was fun playing these games with the computer bots but it even heightened the fun when I started playing in groups and clans. I made more friends. My social circle increased.
Time passed. It was time for the examinations. The laptop was a great help during that time. E-books, sample papers, old question papers, soft copy of my professor's notes, I gathered all. Some from the college's library website and some I took in a pen-drive from my professors. All these materials were of great help. They made it easier and simpler to study. It was at that time, I thanked for this invention heartily. Since, I am a computer science student, I had to do a lot of programming in so many different languages too. I had labs in college but having this laptop with me all the time made me practice more and I got the better out of it. It helped me a lot in completing my projects before the deadline. I worked in my labs as well as in my room.
As I told you before, I had a Wi-fi Internet connection. This Internet is something that has revolutionized the world. I would say "Internet is an ocean with no shores" containing vast knowledge and information. And I was able to swim in this ocean through my laptop from my room. What a convenience! Don't you think. My laptop really made my life smooth. Ordering and buying stuff on-line, interacting and communicating with friends through social networks just from my room. Making new friends, sharing my poetry, sketches and thoughts through my blog, again from my room. My laptop, which is definitely an inanimate device, has made my life easier and filled it with happiness and joy.
