I finally have internet again!
Okay, in reality it's only been 3 days since I moved into this house, which means it's only really been three days since I haven't had internet. But when you only work 1-2 times a week, those three days feel endless.
As happy as I am to have internet again (yay blogging!), there was something a little freeing about being so disconnected. While I could still check Facebook, Twitter, and e-mail on my phone, I couldn't waste time nearly as efficiently as I used to, by streaming endless hours of Gossip Girl, or meandering pointlessly around the internet. I had to actually, you know. Entertain myself.
And it's been great. I actually attempted a Pinterest-worthy craft, instead of just pinning and thinking "Oh, that's nice." I made real dinner, instead of calling for take-out or settling for a sandwich. I've read, and watched a few movies all the way through (as opposed to watching a movie while my laptop is perched on my lap). It forced me to focus on one thing, rather than twelve.
All that being said, excuse me while I go catch up on all my favourite blogs!
Do you ever take a break from the internet? How does that go for you?
