Aaaaaaand I have internet again! Thank god! It was getting to be a bit much typing out some of those posts on my phone in the morning.
It unfortunately has opened my eyes to the fact that I've become quite reliant on technology. If I leave my phone at home I don't fret too too much because I know I can check e-mail/blog/other blogs/facebook/twitter/etc... on my computer at work. If I didn't have my computer for a short period of time I'm okay, because I would normally have my phone and can check things on there. When I don't have either... I start getting a little antsy. That really isn't good! I had gone less than 3 weeks without the internet at home and I was getting irritable! It's like taking a junkie's drug away from them. I've become an internet junkie, complete with twitches!
Something tells me I need to get out more... Hmmm.
Just a few years ago I used to memorize everything. Phone numbers, dates, schedules, you name it. Heck, I memorized my schedule AND I memorized the Mec E Club president's schedule so I could remind him when he needed to be somewhere. Now? A friend asked me last week when I was free to hang out and I couldn't give him a definitive answer because I had forgotten my phone at home and my schedule was in it. That's just sad. I'm in a self induced technology laden brain fog.
Again, I need to get out more. I received a 30 day free trial pass to the gym a couple blocks down from my house. I'll check and see what the catch is, and maybe start hitting it and see if that helps with clearing the fog.
Does anyone else out there feel as tethered as I do to their technology some days?
