Could you live without the internet for a week? For a month?
filing this under “highly doubtful unless there involves a handsome monetary reward upon task completion”.
a week, i could probably do. maybe even a fortnight, if i was surrounded by good company and/or various other forms of entertainment/mind stimulants, AND if all of my favorite shows were only showing re-runs. a month just seems to be an awful long stretch of not checking twitter or instagram, and to not be all up on current events. because at some point, current events becomes recent events, which ends up just as boring ol’ irrelevant and outdated history. even the most sensationalist news stories fade into the background. just look at 9/11. (oh, we’re still talking about that? grrrrreat.)
don’t get me wrong. i would love to gladly and voluntarily take a week turned month hiatus from the internet (and the world) but this is the 21st century, y’all. short of a hands tied or life and death situation, being stuck on a deserted island, lost in a jungle or out to sea, i honestly don’t know if i could. i ain’t proud of it, but the weather ain’t gonna check itself.
