Where’s the beef? Online shopping

Raquel Rossi, Opinion Editor

Online shopping is just the devil whispering in your ear to buy more things. One minute, you’re happily doing research for a project and the next thing you know, you’ve somehow ended up on the Target webpage comparing the prices of assorted jelly beans. It’s just too handy! You can buy infinite things without ever getting up from your seat. Most of the time, people don’t even feel the gravity of their spending habits until it gets to their door, or until they get their credit card bill. It makes shopping way too easy, and it’s a sneakily convenient way to get off task. Not to mention that ads for things you’re interested in show up on virtually every webpage, begging you to click on them. Especially on academic ones. So not today, Satan. I’ll be comparing my jellybeans in person.
