Hooked Up

After a week long break from the internet and other similar technology, I was starting to feel like I was part of a simpler time. Peaceful, slower, and much less stressed. While at the cottage this past week I walked a little away from technology, of course I did still used the phone and I did have to spend some time on my computer typing up stuff for school and I did watch a couple of movies, but I at least turned my back on the internet. I was surprised to find that I didn't miss it. I didn't feel any sort of loss or worry at being away from all that e-mail, Facebook, this blog, and the world wide web in general have to offer me. I am now on the bus returning to The O-Town from The T-Dot. This bus is amazing!! I have fast free internet and a plug for my laptop. Greyhound is totally hooked up!! This is the future. It seems that I have turned back towards the light, or maybe the slightly neon glow, of the internet. Not only do I welcome it back into my life with open arms but actually fully embrace it as I'm drawn in towards the warmth.

Neat that the bus had internet.
The moment Dave and I got home, we both ended up on the computers. It was funny because as mine was booting up I could hear Dave's beeping at him.

"It seems that I have turned back towards the light, or maybe the slightly neon glow, of the internet." ----I love this line. This whole entry kinda sums up how I felt not having the internet for a month or so and then going back. Contented with it, contented without it.

Its always very relaxing and peaceful to have a break from the Internet for a week. However, I always find you can't wait to go on it by the time you get back.
