Can't Live Without It

I read in today's paper that the iPhone was voted the 8th most important invention, losing out to the wheel, the aeroplane, the light bulb and the worldwide web.

I don't have an iPhone so I can't comment on whether it deserves this ranking, but in today's fast paced world I don't know what I would do without my phone. I take it everywhere I go; whether that be to work, on a walk, the cinema or even to the bathroom (perhaps a little weird, but I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one!). Not only can you receive phone calls and texts; but with advances in technology you can take high quality photographs, download music and access the internet. Mobile phones have become something a lot of people can't live without and if someone has left theirs in the house they often say they feel lost without it!

So even though I agree that it doesn't deserve the highest ranking I do think mobile phones have become a must have item, with both young children and pensioners enjoying the services that they offer!

What do you think is the best invention?

Future Work

I am currently working in a small Farm Shop/ Tearoom back home to earn some extra money during the summer holidays. When I was in the other day I noticed a lady with a portfolio sitting at a table, waiting on a client to arrive. Once he did I couldn't help but have a little peak, every time I walked past, at the work she was showing him! I noticed that she was discussing a corporate identity with the client, and how this would be applied across a range of products. It got me quite excited about the future and how one day I might be the woman sitting in a tearoom discussing a new project rather than the girl serving the tea!
