I've been without the Internet for THREE weeks at home. I'd gotten in a bad way before that with not posting as often, and now I'm in a really bad way. My life consists of work, school, church and no Internet. I didn't realize how addicted I was until the Internet was unceremoniously cut off at my house. I'm still waiting for it to get fixed. And waiting. And waiting.
I knew I depended on the Internet, but seriously this is ridiculous. Here are some of the ways my life has been affected by not having the Internet:
1. Could not cook the roast chicken recipe I wanted to try because my only source for the recipe was online.
2. Don't check my bank balance at all. (Yikes!)
3. Have to wait to make phone calls at work because I use the Internet as my phone book too.
4. Had to write a term paper at my office or at my parents' house because I needed the Internet to do research, get email, and compile all the pieces and parts from my group.
5. Can't watch old episodes of my current obsession
6. Can't check my calendar and to-do list at home because they are attached to my gmail account
7. Can't read everyone else's excellent blogs
8. Can't get my lessons ready for Primary without hitting lds.org.
Yes, that is the state of my life. When it initially went out, I got a bad feeling and knew that it would likely be at least two weeks before I saw it again. I've pushed myself to be patient. Unfortunately, I'm waiting on other's timelines and not my own. All I can say is:
I want my Internet baaaaaaaaaaaaacccccccckkkkkkkkkk!
Pretty please, with a cherry on top?
