    I find myself as I get older just getting so tired of the internet and technology in general. There is always a new and improved version of a phone/computer and etc that supposedly makes everything obsolete and that we can't live without.

    I think the last thing that affected my life greatly was the ipod but thats because im a music freak and listen to it while I work everyday.

    My computer recently burnt up and Im taking this time to do an experiment and go backwards in technology and try to concentrate on the more important things in my life.

    Instead of buying a new computer I had my internet turned off. Im going to spend more quality time with my kids and working out to better myself.

    Any $ i would spend on cmptr stuff can go towards bills and will force me to concentrate on my face to face relationships instead.

    We'll see how it goes but I would be lying if I said I dont miss it but part of me feels releived in a way also.

    Do you ever get tired of the rat race, technology and internet?

    I recently am in a dilemma...

    I've went all summer without internet in my apartment, however, it is quite refreshing not being so connected to the world when I am home. I think I might keep it this way. I get so much more done at home and don't get those temptations of drunk FB'ing.

    So, I have internet at work and school, but when I'm home it's just me. It's kinda nice.
