Spell slowww

Having been “offline” for the past few days has both its benefits and disadvantages. Let’s start with the former.

  1. I have more time to catch up on my readings for my online class.
  2. I have more time for my kids, family, and myself to reflect mostly.
  3. I can save up on electricity.
  4. Had more sleep in years.
  5. Experienced less stress.
  6. No more headaches (still related with number 5).
  7. No e-mails to answer, no spam to delete.
  8. No computer virus to deal with (been doing this recently).
  9. Possible “tendonitis” from chatting with various people avoided.
  10. Peace.

Disadvantages:

  1. Got hundreds, no thousands, of e-mails, with less than a hundred that I need to reply to.
  2. News deprivation at its peak.
  3. I miss my online friends (they’re a handful though hahaha)
  4. I miss my online pet (I think I killed it).
  5. My PC gathers dust (now I need to clean it).
  6. I don’t get to watch YouTube.
  7. I miss my iTunes.
  8. Too much sleep can “kill” you.
  9. I still get spammed.
  10. I still get computer virus.
  11. The world passes by, and it actually forgets you. You’re just a bit that resides somewhere in the net.

One of my friends observed that I spend a lot of time online everyday. They could not imagine me being away from my PC for days. Well, it is refreshing feeling to get away for a while and as they say, to smell the flowers. But in my case, I was away watching and waiting for my daughter’s recovery in a hospital. The closest I got to smelling the roses was, er, after 😉 This does not mean though I regretted last week’s online deprivation. In my book, family is first before anything else.

Have a nice day!
