No Internet! Ohh God. Bored!


Empire

Recommended Posts

As of today, it's been very cold, cold in fact that it's not even snowing but ice, anyway point saying that my phone and internet line went down for eight hours today. Got me thinking though. Since we all do things online, I was bored. I was like damn. most that I do is the online and the only option that I had was watching game videos that I had my system.

 

If your connection goes down for hours on end, what do you do? Bored or just what your brain goes dead.

If my Internet goes out, I wait for it to come back up. I've never had an issue with it going down for more then 24 hours to my memory. There may have been once where it was a couple days. I'd probably just chill out and watch TV. Of course we don't have cable and use Roku so I wouldn't even be able to do that. That's too bad though your Internet went out.

We have a generator backup that kicks on automatically when our power goes out but if the cable company is out too then we won't have internet or TV. When that happens I have tons of things I can be doing such as working out, doing crafts, art, singing, playing flute or tin whistle, etc.

 

Don't be bored! Find fun things to do even if it's organizing your sock drawer LOL

I unplug often anyways thruout the day. I can always find something to do. If it's nice out & during the day time, I tinker around outside. If it's cold & dreary, I have Variety Puzzle books, books, playing cards. I like to clean so there's that lol

It's pretty funny when I lose the internet; Even though the PS3/PS4 can play games offline I feel like I don't want to.. Which makes no sense at all, especially as timestamps are maintained so long as you've been online with the console(s) you're playing on in the past.

 

Thankfully I haven't experienced too many outages, but I find watching films are a good way of killing a bit of time. I even do a few chores if I feel like it!

I am a huge fan of calligraphy, whenever I get some free time I sit with my calligraphy pen and notepad feels like heaven.

In this digital age handwritten letter or a note to a friend will definitely put a smile in their face.

My suggestion is to use internet for our betterment, not to be hooked throughout the day

I guess people have become so dependant on internet these days that just the thought of internet getting disconnected can cause sort of panic in them. I am sure there should be some medical term for that but I am not aware. Internet has indirectly made all lazy I feel. I know many who are glued to the screen most of the day. Utilizing the internet free time for some productive purpose such as home improvement, getting your unfinished work done, taking the time to review your priorities etc... the list can go on. It is just up to you to take the initiative and get on with the job. You will never have time to feel bored.

I had a ton of set backs because of power outages in our area in California cuz of forest fires, before we got the tesla solar roof stuff installed but I would just pack all the emergency stuff with my hommies and we would play some ping pong or basket ball. Or if I was alone I would just read some book.
