Hi! My name is Julia and I am a Fine arts major. The MIG welding machine has been the most influential piece of technology in my life, but I guess that is because I need it to finish my thesis. I had never done any metal work before coming to Bryn Mawr, so when I started taking sculpture classes and learned to weld my life changed completely. I had come into college thinking that I would study history of art, but only take studio art classes when I had extra time. The first time I used the MIG welder I knew that I was not meant for a life in regular academic classes. This is not the newest technology, but I've never been the most up to date person with technological advances. This is why I have not and will not buy a smart phone. I have a simple, free with your new plan, flip phone. I was kind of upset when I had to upgrade to a camera phone. The reason I don't like smart phones is because I like having some alone time. I despise the idea of having a phone that can take pictures/videos, check your facebook, search the internet, and worst of all send you e-mail updates. I don't judge others for having them, but I really like having my space and not having every aspect of my life following me around. I don't think I would ever get one over the course of this class.
