How To Deal With No Internet

Enjoy time away from the internet
I know it sucks not being connected to the internet. It has become such a part of our lives, but having no internet is going to happen sometimes.

While your first instinct is to scream at the person who answers the phone at your ISP (which may be me), think about all the things you can do while you are forced to be unplugged.

You can read a book, or work on a project around your house. If you have cable or Dish, you can watch tv. You could go to the park, go to the movies, spend time with  your family.

And if you really, really need to get online, take your laptop someplace where there is free wifi or visit a friend's house. If you don't have any friends, it might be a good time to make one.

No internet is not the end of the world, and this is coming from someone who uses the internet to make a living.

Just something to think about over this long holiday weekend - if your internet goes out, it might be a while before someone can fix it. So please refrain from yelling at your ISP and consider it a nice break from the internet
