My mom thinks I waste time on the internet. My thoughts? False.
And I can prove it.
For the past MONTH we have not had the internet in our apartment. According to my mom, this would give me extra time, because I wouldn’t be wasting it online. This did not happen.
For one, we wasted a LOT of time trying to get creative when we NEEDED to be online. For example, one night we had to run to the parking lot of the Tanner Building to get WiFi and add a class before midnight. This happened more than once.
Also, my house is messier when I don’t have the internet. How can this be? Well, I like to be entertained while washing dishes and doing laundry – normally I devote two complete hours of cleaning during the week while I watch The Biggest Loser, and another 20 minutes during Modern Family. (This may not seem like a lot of time, but come on, my apartment is barely over 100 square feet…one of the perks.)
So, instead of cleaning I’ve sat on my bed and watched the dishes multiply in the sink and the laundry basket reach its full capacity (and then some…). (Yes, I can see the sink and the laundry hamper in my bathroom from sitting on my bed. Also, I can get food from the fridge and jump onto the couch in our ‘living room’. Quite convenient.)
And several times, instead of doing something productive, I sad around moping about how I really want to look at blogs, too sad to do anything else.
So…. this is what came from our internetless-ness month:
You were wrong. I waste WAY more time when I DON’T have the internet.
Oh, on another note, last night Nate and I went on our first really dinner since AUGUST!
(No, we didn’t go out to eat to celebrate when Nate got accepted to medical school (as planned), OR on our anniversary. Shocking, I know. I also eat a baked potato almost every single day. We are misers.)
It was awesome. We went to CHILI’S where Nate gave up his seat and stood for half-an-hour for a little girl in a cast. This was purely in honor of Kaylie, our little four-year-old friend and cousin in her full body cast, poor little lady.
Then we went to Target and ‘window shopped’ through the dishes aisles, the exercise equipment aisles, and the home decor aisles.
Don’t pretend you’re bored with my post about our fascinating date. You’re not. 😉
