WP Prompters Want to know: Your life without a computer: what does it look like?
Before the end of the Week I schedule my posts to show up on Saturday and Sunday because when I get home on Friday I am DONE with the world.
I don’t know about your world, but mine is driven by the internet and computers through the week. Do you know how noisy that is? It’s deafening. Sometimes I forget to take my phone to work or I forget to pull it out of my backpack and I can describe those days as having been quiet and oddly less stressful.
I love it.
Anyway, on the weekends I don’t use my computer. I don’t even goof off on my phone.
So how do I amuse myself? What do I do for fun, how do people get ahold of me ‘ in case of an emergency’ if I’m not on line?
First of all I read, I write ( in longhand- so what I am doing is drafting ideas and outlines) I listen to music. I play with my dog. I watch movies on DVD. I wear something comfy and I don’t put on any makeup and I eat a lot of popcorn.
If anyone needs me they call on my landline, but I do keep my cellphone on and it sits on a shelf near my front door and if anyone calls me on it ( or texts- God I HATE text messages ) I do pick up.
I don’t have to imagine a life without computers because on the weekends I don’t use them- don’t tell anyone.
I think there are rules about that sort behavior nowadays.
Tragic, isn’t it?
