Twenty four hours with no internet? No problem. I’m going camping and staying away from the internet would not be a problem was my first thought; however, I changed my mind and wanted to fully challenge myself. I knew it was going to be a difficult challenge because I love the internet. What is there not to love? It provides me information and updates on all the other parts of my life that I love; music, sports, and furthering my knowledge about useless information. Not only does it keep me up to date in my interests and hobbies, but I am also able to communicate with friends through instant messenger. Throughout the years, a lot of my friends have abandoned the instant messengers and they start asking questions about why not just meet with a person for coffee, or at least talk to them on the phone? Why do that when I can have a conversation with a friend on AIM, read about the legacy of Michael Jackson, and watch a Youtube video of a seven year old kid dancing to the newest Black Eyed Peas on the radio all at one time. As you can tell I really do love the internet, but I believe I have the strength to refrain for one day.

Friday was a day I woke up in
The rest of the time in
I must say that I had a fairly productive day on Friday, and I am sure that it had a lot to do with not having internet. I’m sure if I had internet I would have taken a lot more breaks in between moving in both
One part of the day that I did not particularly enjoy was about how much television I watched. Without having internet I felt like I spent a lot of time watching TV either just to kill time or waiting for something that I actually wanted to watch. When I have the internet I can view the topics that I actually want to read about instead of waiting for them to show up during a certain time slot.
