Just Google It

True story: I didn’t have a clue what ‘penitentiaries’ was while doing a synthesis of 1800s government in Canada (for school, obviously; I’m not that much of a nerd). And guess what I did as soon as I got home? I Googled that unpronounceable word.

And in case you’re wondering, penitentiaries are basically reform schools for criminals. I’d have had to go to the enormous dictionary in my bookcase and slog through it (I suck at using dictionaries, BTW). But Google saved my life once again and hopefully the definition is what my Socials teacher was looking for.Google Logo

Honestly, Google is probably the one thing that keeps us ‘technological-devices-addicted’ people (as older people like to label us) sane. I can’t count the number of times I’ve run to my computer and Googled an irregular French verb for conjugations or typed in random things like my name when I’m so bored I can’t think of anything else to do.

Google is basically the Wikipedia of search engines. And even though teachers always tell you not to blindly trust Wikipedia or the first choice that comes up in Google, let’s face it, there is nothing more useful on the web than Google and Wikipedia.

In short, Google is my saviour. And like everyone likes to say, next time you’re looking for something, just Google it. Chances are, you already know that chances are, you’ll find whatever you’re looking for.

Because Google is G.

Ha-ha, I don’t even use excessive slang like the above line, but it sounds cool. I was just so glad to find out what penitentiaries are with miminum effort, and I thought I’d share it with you guys, since we all probably take Google for granted.

By the way, I just finished The Carrie Diaries by Candace Bushnell. It’s SO amazing. Review coming up soon!
