Wasted Time

I mentioned a few posts ago that my router broke so I was without internet the first few weeks of school. The first few days this was horrible. What was I going to do without internet? The answer: a lot. 

Generally, I keep track of what I do with my time. And, while I never wasted that much time on the internet, of course I occasionally wasted some time. Not having internet was definitely inconvenient for getting school done and getting in contact with people (or you know, when I needed to Google Disney song lyrics). But, I found that I had plenty to do even without internet. I started reading more, got a several projects done that I had been putting off, and my house has never been cleaner! All things I had been trying to find the time to do, and it turns out I already had the time!

It's awesome having internet again, but part of me wishes I had never fixed the router. (Just kidding. I, unfortunately, do need the internet.) Now I'm even more intentional about what I do with my time--especially when it comes to the internet. The one question I ask myself before clicking on a link or searching for something: Do I really care? If the answer is no, and it is more often than you'd think, I go and find something else to do. It's awesome! I've organized my craft-room/office, I'm almost done cleaning the basement, and I've read 4 or 5 books since the beginning of the semester. Yeah, life is kind of amazing without the burden/awesomeness that is the internet.


  1. Life without internet is glorious. I went two weeks with out it last summer when there was a huge power outage in my town and I had never read more in my entire life.

    1. Yup, I almost miss not having internet--but I've still been good about reading!

  2. I love a floral cute! Haha I don't know how well I'd fare without internet...

  3. Your hair looks so good! Glad you got your internet back, but totally agree it can be a total timesuck/burden! I love it though :-)-♥- Rachel (For the Birds)
