Occupational thoughts

According to recent research American teenagers sent and received an average of  2,272 text messages per month.
Keep in  mind that those are texts sent-and-received so half that number is approximately the number of texts sent.
Why is this relevant?

  1. Last night I stayed up until 10:51 in a conversation call on Skype with a quick glance estimate of over 600 messages sent/recieved. If I did that a bit more often, I’d easily rack up 2,272 messages in a month.
  2. I sent 2 text messages on my phone last month, they were both asking Nick where he was in Summertown.

  1. “now you have adolescents who are texting their mothers 15 times a day, asking things like, ‘Should I get the red shoes or the blue shoes?’ ”
    Ha ha ha – what world are they living on? They meet some weird teenagers in NY.

  2. Well I read the article and I’m not convinced that texting leeds…
    ‘to anxiety, distraction in school, falling grades, repetitive stress injury and sleep deprivation.’
    But 2,272 are allot of messages to send/receive in one month.
    I also think that the skype conversation is defiantly something that should be repeated. And by going to bed at at 10.51 you missed out!

  3. Thank God, there are text-messaging facility that our teenage folks may freely express, rather than suppressing and suffocating.
