A few days ago I had my 1 year blogaversary. On the very same day, the Internet was cut off.
I am ignoring it.
As the 1st No Internet day was passing by and the odds of getting it fixed soon looked more and more pale, I started to panic. Sad, but true.
And then it hit me. I am an addict. An Internet addict. I use it for almost anything; to blog, to connect, to look things up, to stay in touch with friends and relatives, to work. I use it ALL THE TIME. It is easy and uncomplicated. It is great. Or so I thought.
You see, I have ‘survived’ without the Net for longer stretches of time in the past (usually during vacation) but it had always been MY CHOICE.
Now, I was ‘forced’ to have a break. I thought it would be dreadful. What would I do?
The first No-Internet night we went to bed at 09:30 pm. I can’t remember the last time we voluntarily went to bed shortly after we put the kids to rest. After all, this is MY FAVORITE TIME OF THE DAY.
3 Days of NO INTERNET passed by and I realized the following few things (in order to avoid cheesiness I’ ll share a couple of pics I found on the net which describe the situation perfectly):
So PAINFULLY true.
Do yourselves and your families a favor and try to look at the big picture. Can you relate? Are you so Internet obsessed that you are missing out on everyday life? On your kids? There is still time to change that. Step back and enjoy the small Internet unrelated joys of life.
Thanks to everyone who has cared, followed, commented and helped bring this blog to life.
Up until next time
The Internet is great. In moderation.
