The last two months have been a bit hectic for me. Had a birthday / was kicked out of the house I had been living in for 3 years => found new housing / sold a bunch of shit, packed the rest / moved out / moved in => spent a week with my family ‘off the grid’ on a 42 foot sailboat in Desolation sound / re-acclimated back to civilization / and finally returned back to normal life
A lot happened during this stretch of my life that went unposted on this is not a comp which is a bit unfortunate. The reasons for this are varied and for the most part don’t matter. I was just sort of busy it happens. But one of the main reasons that it happened would be the fact that for the last month I have not had cable or access to the internet at my new house which is pretty lame.
I took having access to the world wide system of tubes that connect everything an everyone for granted and for good reason. It is awesome. But not being connected also has its advantages. I have done a bunch of reading, thinking, walking, been listening to a lot more radio broadcasts of the Seattle Mariners. To be honest, I don’t miss television, but I do miss the internet a bit. I mean I am not completely disconnected, I still had internet on my phone but that is just not the same…
I guess what I am trying to say is that I took it all for granted and not having access forced me to change my default settings during my downtime. Instead getting home and turning on the TV or computer I did other stuff like read a magazine or make sure the house was picked up or just kill time. It was a good wake up call and reminder of what is actually important.
That being said, I now have internet! So let the blogging commence!
