I don’t have internet in my new apartment yet, and I’m one of those hold-outs who doesn’t yet own a smart-phone. As such, my internet access is few and far-between. I snag some time at the library when I can (but their internet is pretty slow), and right now I’m sitting in the Cafe area of the hospital where my husband works. When I do get online, it’s usually to look up “necessary” things, such as insurance agents and auto mechanics. I’ll check my e-mail and glance through Facebook a little, too. If I have a little extra time, I’ll read a blog post or two, but I haven’t spent a ton of time on the blogosphere, or in the world of social media in general, actually.
Yeah, sometimes it’s inconvenient. When I want to shoot off an e-mail to someone, I can’t just pull out my laptop and send it off. I have to plan out how and when I’ll make it happen. We don’t have a TV, either, and I haven’t made a habit of listening to the radio, so I’m woefully behind on the news, and I never know what the weather is going to be like. I got caught out running errands in a horrible rain storm a week ago because I had no idea it was coming. It wouldn’t have been a problem, except I was driving the car with unreliable windshield wipers (more on that later). Oh well.
