Nearly three weeks ago my boyfriend and I moved into a new house and since then we have been without internet. In fact, we are still without internet but we have escaped this foreign, disconnected land and travelled to our hometown Byron Bay, with internet!
It honestly feels strange using my computer. Typing feels unfamiliar. Not being able to blog frustrated me, with only my iPhone connection to connect me to the cyber world. Not all was/is bad however. I got back into my love of reading, which I'm sure you all know is hindered somewhat by the overpowering, mind-numbing and time-eating thing called the World Wide Web. I've now promised myself to read a book a week, even when our internet finally gets connected next Thursday.
So really, being disconnected from that safe, constant internet force is yes, annoying in some ways but also incredibly refreshing. It's even as far as detoxing. My mind feels much more peaceful and less filled with brain fuzz. I do urge you guys to try and go without internet for a while and see what happens. The creative side you never thought you had may emerge, you'll read those books you bought but never started, appreciate the quiet and free time, and become more in touch with yourself and your own ideas, rather than all the crap that is pushed into your mind every time you open your web browser.
Anyway, I hope every one is well. I'll be with internet late next week and will get back into blogging on a regular basis pronto (making sure the internet doesn't swallow me whole, of course). Here are some instagram photos of what's been going on these past absent weeks.
