Ok.. I will admit it this wasn’t my choice but was thrust upon me. The Internet went off in my whole town!! It was terrible; people were looting from the shops, punching each other in the face and the world fell off its axis and we all died. .. Not really, a few people mumbled ‘Oh I hear everyone’s internet went off’ ..
I think we sort of get tied to our computers and to FB and other online things. In sort of like it when I don’t feel the obligation to get back to emails or respond on FB. I had a 3 week holiday a few years ago with no internet and I didn’t miss it at all… it was just how 17 years ago felt! lol
It actually did make me happy and I am certainly thinking of having a few internet free days in the future. (After I finish my blog ) Sometimes it’s nice just to ‘be’ and to not really communicate more than you have to.
My internet free day (Yesterday..hence the non blogging) was pretty full as we were helping Michael’s sister move into an empty flat and get stuff organised for her as we had arranged work experience for her in a recording studio. This took up most of the day and when I got home I was tired and sort of glad I had no online obligations.
I know people who freak out when they can’t get online.. but actually it is relaxing. Next year when I have finished my blog (will probably write bits now and then of course) and am doing the final year of my course I might pick a couple of days where I don’t go online..
All this said I do feel sorry for those on FB whose virtual crops were ruined in farmville.
