Net-surfing -- Are You Ready?
With the booming of information age, Internet has played an important role in young people's everyday life. Today, more and more college students are using Internet for their routine life and study. Net-surfing has become an important part of campus life. It's not uncommon that quite a number of them would enjoy surfing and playing games on Internet. Certainly, students have good reasons to do so. First, Internet has enriched students' life with a lot of fun, thus making their campus life more colorful. Second, students can make use of Internet to search for the useful materials they need for their study. Third, they can read news and local happenings or whatever they feel interested in on Internet.
The problem, however, is that some students spend too much time on net-surfing. Sometimes they would be totally indulged in the virtual Internet world. Whenever they find a "cozy" place in a stuffy net bar they would play computer games or chat on-line day and night, forgetting the passing of time and becoming completely insulated with the outside world. Worse still, some students even become addicted to visit the pornographic websites or play computer games full of violence. This, certainly, does great harm to both their health and their study.
There is no denying that Internet has enriched young people's life. But once a student becomes too indulged in the virtual Internet world the student's normal life will be impacted, and even spoiled. As college students, we should tell right from wrong. We should try to limit the net-surfing time to a reasonable amount and refuse to visit those websites which are established only to lure young people with the content of sex and violence. Only in this way can we truly establish and maintain a colorful Internet world.
