Technology is so important these days that you can’t live without it. Just last Saturday my Xbox broke and I’ve been struggling with what to do. I know I have work to do and many other games to play but knowing that one option isn’t available messes the whole day up. Only now have I found time to actually write this. This is a huge inconvenience that I wish to tell you about.
It started in the morning and it was working perfectly. I was playing the last level on Halo 3 on the hardest difficulty. I decided to call my gaming friend because I wanted to play co-op, but he wasn’t available that day. I go back to my Xbox and it won’t turn on, and it had the red ring of death (as oppose to the blue screen of death). And after much research it said that it had an internal hardware failure. My friend had said that he could play tomorrow so in the morning of the next day I got one, one that was much better then the previous Xbox. But because my family was watching hockey, I wasn’t able to set it up. OY!
I know that I’m very lucky to even have an Xbox, but when I’m used to having it and it breaks, it has a serious effect on my day. It’s sort of like this for a lot of people. Have you ever been working and your Internet didn’t work? And because you need it, you start freaking out? Well it’s a bad habit in this modern age. We should try not to let this happen, so please join me in being less reliant on technology. We are very lucky to have technology and we shouldn’t be this reliant on it.

I’m not the kind of person who likes to see plays and musicals, but just last weekend I saw a truly exceptional musical. I was with the Upper School choir on the CISMF trip, and on one of the nights we went to see a major production. It is called Grease, and it’s full of music, dancing, and a great story. Of the very few shows that I have seen, this is definitely the best.
Some of the amazing elements of the musical include, the great songs, astonishing actors, a famous country singer, big, grand sets, and a fluid plot. Some of my favorite songs of the musical are: Summer Nights, Greased Lightnin’, and We Go Together. The actors who perform these songs are brilliant; like Ace Young and Emily Padgett. Another famous name is Taylor Hicks who performed many old-fashioned country songs. For one of his songs he appeared out of a giant ice-cream cone that seemed to be solid. All of these elements came together for an amazing performance.
With each and every song, you wanted to get up and dance. The singers sung perfectly without any noticeable mistake. And the orchestra played the 50’s music very well too. The choreography for the singers was pretty cool; after a couple seconds of seeing them, it felt like you could do it too. The whole thing came together to be a truly remarkable performance.
