Here's the Deal

We are still experiencing some technical difficulties over here. I sucked it up and sat through a Genius Bar session Saturday morning, bought a new computer battery and went on my merry way, thinking all of the problems in my world were solved.

Not so.

Now my computer doesn't want to connect to the internet at my new house, and since I got my computer two years ago and only opted for the one year warranty (idiot), I'm screwed. I either have to buy Applecare or pay a one-time service fee. I troubleshooted my little heart out and couldn't fix it myself, which was quite bothersome.

Meanwhile, I attended a joint bachelorette party for my friends AG and SR on Saturday and I can't upload pictures to my computer because even if they were there, I'd be unable to show them to you since OH YEAH, NO INTERNET.

On the flipside, I'm reading and cooking more, since there is no mindless clicking to be had in the evening hours for now. I also contacted someone about piano lessons, then decided that my brother and I will be hanging out poolside while he teaches me to play chess this holiday weekend.

Almost forgot what it was like to have hobbies.

We are less dissatisfied when we lack many things than when we seem to lack but one thing.

I've always wondered what my life would be like if there was no internet, I wonder what I could achieve... maybe it's a blessing.

I hear you on the forgetting what it's like to not have hobbies. I somewhat discussed this in a post I recently wrote. Anyhow, I'm glad to hear that you are finding other things to do with your time away from the internet! :)

This made me realize that I don't have hobbies anymore! I wouldn't know what to do without the internet. Love the last quote - had to think about it for a while!
