Day Three No Internet Cell No Social Media


Well day three has been a little easier then the other two. I have not felt any withdraw or any other draw backs from not using social media. It does feel like I have more time at the computer because I am not reading Face Book, Google Plus or Twitter.

Now the down side I realized today is that Twitter is where I get most of my current news let me explain, My wife normally watches that local news every morning as well as I use to but along came Twitter. Now she will be watching the news and ask me if I have seen some story and my response is normally I read that on Twitter. I enjoy reading the news on Twitter because I avoid all the commercials which means my time is better spent.

Okay now for my confession! When I came home from work we found that there was a Internet outage. I called the ISP and they reported that there is a wire down and it is being corrected. So I decided I would mow the lawn. After cutting the grass I returned to the computer to find still no Internet. And I did it I broke my own rule for this week “No Cell Internet”. I pulled out my IPhone and checked my email using the 3G connection. So is Internet on a cell phone a absolute must? I can’t say that yet but did it pull me out in the time of need? Yes nice backup. I had one of my online students email me with some questions and without missing a beat I was able to help the student and get them back on track.

Well let’s move into day 4 more reporting coming tomorrow.
