A Day In The Life Of Me Without Internet

 A Day In The Life of Me Without Internet

What’s life like without internet? Keeping reading to find out.

Friday Night

Friday after work I headed to the Mall to do a little retail therapy. Before leaving I made a quick stop at the supermarket to pick up some items. I arrived at home ten minutes later, put some clothes into the washer, packed the grocery items neatly into the cupboard, took a shower and made a quick dinner.

Usually I look at a movie or series on Netflix to set the mood for the weekend while enjoying bag of popcorn, my favourite snack.

Trial & Error

While having dinner I logged in to my laptop computer and none of the web pages loaded. Upon checking the internet signal bar, the yellow caution sign. This is an indication of no connection.

“Probably my internet needs resetting” I said to myself. Noting that for persons who live alone it is quite normal to have these types of conversations with yourself. lol

Two minutes after hitting the reset button and waiting for the internet to reconfigure, the caution sign had not moved.

“Please don’t tell me this!” Another thought that ran through my mind.

Despite being hungry I was slowly losing appetite for my dinner.

The light on the router kept blinking on and off so I did the hard reset the router a couple more times. However, none of that worked neither did anything of interest show on the television.

Instead of wasting more time and torturing myself, I went to bed at the stroke of midnight.

Saturday morning

Took a shower, made coffee, had breakfast and completed the unfinished laundry.

Logged in to my computer and to my surprise the internet appeared to be working fine for roughly two hours before giving problems again.

Last resort was to call the Cable Company which I did and spoke to a technician who tried troubleshooting the issue remotely. We soon noticed that this did not solve the issue. We scheduled an appointment for a house visit for the following week.

Moment of reflection

Several attempts were made to utilize this down time to write new content but my creative juices were not flowing. Out of the many topics in my journal I couldn’t settle my thoughts on anything other than A Day In The Life of Me Without Internet.

Strangely, it was almost impossible to do anything else this weekend. Even things that did not involve use of the internet.

Are we living in a society where persons can not function without the use of internet?

Some countries for example Cuba, the internet is not 100% accessible to every citizen. Could it be that they are either used to that lifestyle or have grown to accept the situation as it is?

Have we grown so accustomed to being “connected” everyday that life suddenly falls apart when we are disconnected from the remainder of the world?

End Note

Thankfully the situation was rectified on Tuesday morning. The issue was actually with the phone line located outside of the building which had to be changed.

How did you spend your weekend?

 

I also want to let you guys know that I finally launched my online store. For now I am selling printable posters and may add more products in the future. You can find it at the menu above this post or by clicking here.

  • Trying out these Reusable Medical Grade Silicone Patches from @siobeauty in hope that they get rid of these fine lines “wrinkles” from my face ☺️ I’ve got the Eye & Smile Lift as well as the Browlift. Best part is that each patch is reusable up to 15 times 😁

  • So happy to have received @coverfx Power Play Foundation in the shade N100 and their Perfect Setting Powder complimentary @influenster. I used these products on my face and I was in awe at how beautiful it looked and lasted. My face remained matte just like I like it, even after sweating profusely 😅 it’s light-weight, full-coverage, long lasting and a little bit of product goes a long way! Can’t wait to post the review on my blog 😁 #soon Beautiful product and there are 40 shades to choose from! Slide left to see the results .

  • So I’ve been using the Dark Garden Collection from @aloette for the past few days now and I’m thrilled. 😁 Of course they are all aloe vera infused with a very mild fragrance. .

I love to use the Body Incense Dry Hand & Body Lotion all over my body after showering especially on evenings after a long day of work.  It’s not as heavy as a lotion but gives that smooth feeling that somehow disappears into the skin  but giving it a moisturized look and feel 🤷🏽‍♀️ Perfect product for pampering  yourself in the comfort of your home. .
.
.
As for the body wash it’s exactly how I love mine, thick with lots of lather. .
.

The lotion also has a thick consistency and doesn’t leave the skin feeling sticky but rather buttery smooth. #sponsored #stepintodarkgarden @aloette #aloette #aloettecosmetics #beautyproducts #bodycare #bodylotion #review #reviews #reviewblogger #ad #spor #aloevera #aloe #candles #spaday #spa #spas #pampering #pamperingmyself #pamperingday #bodylotion #showergel #handlotion #bodyoil #skincareproducts #beautyproduct #beautyproducts #bbloggers
