Sorry I have not updated in a while. I barely got the internet.
Before the internet:
“eh…I can live without it for a week.” – Week one. I spent most of my time going to yoga classes that week an cleaning.
“Ok…Wednesday is fine. I can wait another three days.” – Monday of week 2
“What? Are you kidding me? I was misinformed! I have to wait tomorrow!” – Wednesday of Week 2
“Who on earth wants to be served by lying people like you!” – Thursday of Week 2 after hearing that we were going wait until Tuesday of Week 3. Plus we were told that a technician came over on Wednesday when we were told a technician never showed up at all.
“Oh ok tomorrow between 1 to 2?” – Same day just four hours later after shopping for other internet service providers.
Before the internet, week 2 was awful. Mr. Fish needed it for school because school starts next week and he needs to look for a job. I needed it to communicate with people and read the news. Wednesday and Thursday was when I spent 8 hours on the phone total and I felt awful! Instead of going home to talk to my boyfriend, as soon as I got home I would call the internet service provider and the phone call took a lot longer than I expected. Way too long. I would even talk to them through my dinner time and it was just an awful feeling. I should be talking to my friends and family on the phone instead of talking to customer service.
Life after the internet — great. Crazy how it makes such a difference. I love getting my NY Times every morning on my Nook. I love typing on the keyboard to update on my blog, to write messages to old friends on how I’m doing, looking up things to do in LA, and also let’s mention looking up ways on how to be successful in a new job. We love watching movies off our Amazon Prime and just that feeling of being connected and aware what is going on. I feel the internet has improved our overall mood and I hope it carries itself over. Maybe the internet might help me in my practice of being more assertive.
I know I have a smart phone but using 4G and a touch screen keyboard isn’t the same. After a while, I just got tired of texting.
