I wrote this yesterday via Notepad:
Today we have no internet connection at the office. Although my work does not require internet connection at all, I do use the internet in between phone calls to Japan, in between meetings and especially during lunctime. I also browse and blog late in the afternoon when Japan office is closed and I don’t need to do anything, thanks to the 5 hour time difference (Japan being 5 hours ahead).
Times like this make me think how I am heavily addicted to the net. It is so part of my life already that I do not know what to do without it. As of this writing, I am typing this on notepad and later cut and paste to my blog editor.
Right now I can’t check emails, read the news, update my blog, respond to comments, read my feeds. What will I do if this continues for days?
I have set a house rule for myself to be internet-free at home. Except when my daughter is asleep, I will not open the computer and devote myself to her. From the looks of it, I will be spending the next 24 hours offline. Will I survive?
How long can you go without internet connection?
Update: Internet connection in the office resumed yesterday afternoon. What seemed to be just 5 hours of no internet connection felt like a year!
Internet was the main reason why opted for a 2-day-only visit to my bestfriend in Nagoya. (They still don’t have internet connection in their apartment)
I wanted to stay for a week there but more than 48 hours of no internet felt like something was dying inside me! haha

Hard to believe there is a place in Japan without internet connection! 🙂
I don’t want to be offline for more than 24 hours also.
i can live with or without it.. but I can’t live without TV 😀

if there is no internet i’d probably go to bed early, but i won’t be able to sleep because i’d be worried about having no internet!

I don’t think I could do it. Living so far away from family it is a quick and easy way to keep up with eachother. Cheaper then the phone as well. Our last vacation we had a rule of “no internet games” so for 3 weeks the computer was used only to check your e-mail. That was actually really nice – I suppose I could do without the world wide web for a few days – I would read more books.

I feel the same way sometimes. Recently, we lost our connection at home, and unbelievably, during my restdays! It was a major bummer.
But I’m trying not to fret and fidget everytime that happens. (Most of the times I fail!)
