My laptop suddenly went dead on me during my vacation. Nothing can prepare you for such a thing. Your computer is like your mobile phone or keys or fridge - it’s just there all the time, working, making your life easier without you ever really noticing it. Right? It’s just one of those things that combined with other things constitute the backbone of your modern existence. Let’s face it, we tend to take stuff for granted.
So, I found myself not reading e-mail for about two weeks, not writing anything on the blog, not checking the posts in the forum, not reading any hot Hollywood gossip, no real news - basically no idea what was going on in the world.
And guess what? It only took a few days before I kind of got used to it. The world shrinks, you only know what people close to you are up to. The ones that you either live with or know well enough to call and see how they’re doing.
Not trying to pretend I didn’t miss my logged in/online existence after a while…just saying it’s a good idea to take a break sometimes. And remembering not to take everything for granted
