I ended up stuck without internet access for the last few days while on vacation and the loooonnnng drive home. It was an enlightening experience to say the least. I was angry at first…. well actually I was really ticked off for quite some time about it. I tried doing things on my phone like logging onto my page and checking email but I suck at using my phone for such things. It takes me forever just to type a simple text and service was iffy at best – so there was no accomplishing anything online via my phone.
Anyway – the fact is, I started this July Blog Challenge and was really excited about it and I was on top of posting everyday and I had every intention of continuing to be on time with this challenge. Then I was interrupted for not just one day but several and I was unable to post my daily challenge posts. It was disheartening to get behind and to have no way of doing anything about it.
Then I realized that not only was I upset about not being able to post my blog challenge posts but about not being able to get on the internet in general. It just felt like I was so out of touch with the entire world. It didn’t help that I was vacationing in America’s Historic Triangle – which is colonial historic sites in Williamsburg, Va, the ruins of the first settlement at Jamestown and the battlefields of Yorktown. So the area I was in was set back four hundred years in the past.
All I can say is that a trip to Virginia Beach did make me feel better but I am still almost four blog challenge posts behind – which I have every intention of completing. Something about a lack of connection to the internet just made me feel like I had somehow lost touch with the civilized world.
