Would I Survive No Internet for a Whole Month?

TIME FLIES…………………*

While difficult, I could definitely live without the internet for a month. Before doing so, I’d have to prepare.

I’d have to find good phone books for my area. I’d have to transcribe all of the important phone numbers for friends and family who don’t life in my area from my phone into an address book. I’d have to write down the operating hours of several establishments in my neighborhood that I frequent. Essentially, I’d have to revert to the tools we used before the internet became the replacement for phone books, reference books, and all of the other things we use it for in modern life.

Adjusting to actually calling people on the phone or trying new restaurants without reading reviews online would be huge. I would probably be disappointed more and would spend more time on some tasks than I currently do.

The real question is not “could [I] live without the internet for a month?”, but “do I want to live without the internet for a month?”

The answer to that is no. For all of the good things and despite the bad things the internet has brought modern society, I don’t want to live without. But I could definitely stand to not use it as much.

On that note, adios.
