Welcome back to day two of the challenge. Today’s question had me pondering for a long time. It really puts all of life’s current advancements into perspective and how lucky many individuals are to even have access to such conveniences and amenities. It definitely changed my outlook on much of my surroundings.

Day 02: What technology are you most grateful for?
This was kind of a difficult one for me. Technology is in essentially every part of our existence. How do you decide which one impacts you the most? Initially, I was going to say my computer—a pretty cliché yet straight-forward answer—since I use it more than anything else. But if I had to choose one piece of technology that I’m most grateful for, it’s going to have to be a washer and dryer. I know! Totally strange, right? But have you ever hand-washed a load of clothes and then painstakingly awaited it’s dry-time? Because I have and it fucking blows. It’s also the one piece of modern technology that I think we all take for granted. It’s such a convenient and essential part of most people’s daily lives that thinking about it being non-existent rarely, if ever, crosses our minds. Even if I could learn to live without everything else, I wouldn’t miss those nearly as much as I would my washer and dryer.
