Man, it’s been a long time since I’ve done a #MonayTalks. Like forever, my last one was on December 19, 2016, and I talked about Christmas! To check that post out, click here! I’ll be honest about something else, I’ve also been seriously slacking on blogging this past month. Seriously, I think I’ve published two posts in two weeks? Maybe. I’m not really sure! Anyways, so the point of this post today is talking about why I’ve been gone and what the heck has been going on in my life and honestly, it’s because I need to explain a little bit.
So, basically, the internet and I are breaking up. We’re done, it’s over and honestly I’m so tired of it.
Let me clarify because I think I need to. I’m talking about my wifi signal. For the past two weeks, my internet has been going in and out. First my DSL (or broadband) wouldn’t connect. I got someone out to fix that, it was fixed for a few days, and then BAM! It broke again. well, it wouldn’t connect again. Ugh, so annoying and seriously I couldn’t stand it!
And here’s the thing, we live in the age of technology and what does most technology run on? Oh, that’s right! Internet! And the all the sudden I don’t have it and my life was pretty freaking boring. All the sudden I couldn’t watch youtube videos, I couldn’t post anything on my blog, I couldn’t watch any Netflix or do anything because I had no internet. And that got me thinking, what the heck did people do before the internet? Before technology? Before everything we did ran online. I mean really, I take at least 5 hours every day just to be and do things online. And that’s not including all the time I spend on my phone, online.
What did people do? I mean, I can’t imagine what I would do with all my extra time if I couldn’t get online and enjoy the wonder that is the internet. Think about it, what would you do? Leave a comment and let me know! I guess at one point, they didn’t know what they were missing. They probably talked on the phone, wrote or went outside, something. I know personally, I couldn’t spend hours on the phone. I hate talking on the phone as it is but I know tons of people who do.
What would my life have been like had I not had the internet like I do today. Would I have been in better shape? Or would I have been even more of a couch potato? Would I have studied more in school or would I have been the same? I just don’t know! I always wonder about things, because I’m so used to the way we live. Literally, my answer to most questions can be found online. Need to know to spell a word? Ask Siri. Need to know if a product is worth buying? Look it up online! Want to see a monkey doing the hula? Search it on youtube! Want to watch a full season of a show? Netflix!
It’s just so strange to think about what my life would have been like, what I would have done or not done. Literally, life would have been drastically different. Drastically.
Anyways, my internet is pretty much back to normal now and hopefully, I will be able to get back to a normal posting schedule. Which is, Monday and Friday. I also want to get more videos up, probably more vlogs because those are fun to film. And every now and then I want to have more direct videos.
What do you think your life would have been like? Imagine it and let me know in the comments!
Love, Megan Anne
