our internet is out.
i’m writing this on tuesday evening after work, on biggby’s internet. the only reason i had posts up for monday and tuesday is because i scheduled them over the weekend. this is the first i’ve had internet since leaving my house sunday.
to be honest, it stinks.
to be more painfully honest, i’m spoiled.
i thought about how much i was lamenting not having the internet, and how it’s inconvenient because i can’t check my email when i’d like, among other things, and how this is not the first internet-related debacle we’ve had since setting up our wireless router, but it just so happens that this one is not something i know anything about.
well, besides the fact that the internet is out.
and then i thought about how i’ve had wireless internet for two years straight, minus last summer at my house. and wireless is really nice. and i don’t even care if i have to hook up my computer to the internet with an ethernet cord: internet is nice. and necessary, in its own way. and a waste of time.
i shouldn’t see internet as a major blow to my extracurricular activities, but i do.
i can’t blog, i can’t write emails, i can’t pin anything, i can’t catch up on people’s tweets.
i can’t, i can’t, i can’t.
i should have a different attitude.
without internet, i have time. i can read a book, i can write, i can – and should – pack. if i want to resort to technology, i can still play solitaire on my dad’s ipod.
i think i can, i think i can.
it made all the difference for the little blue engine.
it should make all the difference here.
i should focus on having a spirit enabled to do other things, instead of despairing because i can’t keep up with many of my other activities.
i think i can do that.
