Moving is a hassle that I hope that sometime in the next few years I won’t have to deal with anymore. I’m getting tired of moving every year. Even with my paltry amount of items, being a single woman makes moving yourself rather difficult. I’d hire movers if I had that kind of financial latitude, but with the federal government making educational loans a losing game for students, I’m not even close to having anything resembling financial latitude.
I could keep ranting, but I’ll spare you, dear reader. The subject today is less technology at home.
Currently, I have yet to order Internet at home. I’m not terribly happy about the options from the local cable provider, which have changed considerably since I last ordered Internet, and there are still a lot of other issues that need straightening out before I can get to worrying about Internet.
In the meantime, it’s either the school lab, or some other location with wifi. Currently, most days it’s a lot of coffee shop time. The good thing about this is that instead of wasting time on the Internet doing things that aren’t productive, I tend to be a lot more productive with my time on the Internet when I know it’s limited to the time I’m spending at the coffee shop. My priority list goes something along the lines of pay bills, do homework and research necessary for school, and then do things like blog. As you can see by the lack of posts lately, blogging doesn’t even usually make it into the list of things I get done while I have Internet.
As much as I’d like to make life without internet permanent, I will eventually get around to getting internet service, it’s just low on my priority list for now. I would like to end up doing work at home instead of having to go out and spend money on drinks I don’t need to be drinking, but it’s working for now since I need the coffee to get me through the day lately (don’t even get me started on how bad that is for me.).
The point is though that I would eventually like to get to a point in life where I am less connected electronically and online and more connected to the earth and people. It seems like a good goal especially considering that the powers that be are finally admitting that cell phone use will in fact give you brain tumors (and kill you). You can even be allergic to excessive amounts of electromagnetic radiation. So yeah…the whole go back to the natural things and get connected to life and not technology seems like a good idea for everyone, not just granola crunching, tree huggers.
Just some random, on the fly thoughts. And now I must fly the coffee shop here and get on with other things in life.
Hope everyone is well and staying cool in the summer!
