Well I didn’t get to write a post yesterday. I got to my hotel, ready to write, no internet. Turns out that my hotel, which boasted a wonderful high-speed wifi presence, didn’t actually have internet of any kind. False advertising at it’s best.
This meant no writing for you guys. No work email, personal email, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, or even browsing out of boredom. Of course, I could have used my phone, and I did for a bit. But writing a full post wasn’t an option.
Turns out I’m one of those ppeople that takes the internet for granted. You don’t realize how much you depend on it until you’re out in the middle of nowhere with nothing to do. Everything closed at 8:30 at night, including restaurants. That put a wrench in me wanting to get a post out every single day.
I plan on writing 2 posts today to make up for it. Hopefully my internet tonight will suffuce, or even be present. Otherwise, I’ll power through on my phone, just for you. You’re welcome.
Try not to take things for granted like I did. And definitely try not to rely on them. I know we all rely on the internet for work, school, and personal reasons. Some even have an addiction. But if you can’t make it through life without something as fickle as the World Wide Web, then you have some bigger problems to work out. Remember, the internet is a fairly new tool in the history of the world, and no-one wants to go back to dial-up.
The internet is a tool, nothing more. You don’t need it, it’s just a bonus. Appreciate it and don’t rely on it. It can even get you in trouble. That being said, I’ll be writing another post in a few hours for you. Stay tuned!
Stay classy, and I’ll see you at the next stop.
