You know those moments you experience when your internet cuts out? You know, when you feel totally lost and flustered, sit around doing nothing but waiting for it to come back online, opening your browser every 10 seconds to see if it can establish a connection, restarting your modem and router to see if that'll help, restarting your computer hoping that was the problem, checking every other computer in the house to see if any single one of them can get online, etc? Yeah, we're pretty dependent on the internet that way, and although I was uber excited to go on vacation this past week, I was a little worried I would experience internet-withdrawal as I so often do when the net goes down.
I totally didn't.
It was nice to be without the net and back in reality for a while. The weather was gorgeous, the scenery was just amazing, and the wife and pups were having an awesome time. It reminded me just how much I'm missing by being stuck behind a computer all day long, whether it's for work or WoW. I mean really, how many of us actually think about what's passing us by while we're logged in? Probably not many of us. So, yeah, it was good to have a reminder (wife in bikini > net any day).
So anyway, it's back to the usual daily grind. I start my teaching position in a few weeks, and found out a little bit ago that my classes are in the morning and finish before 1 p.m. every day of the week! So it looks like I'll be able to enjoy my summer after all. =) Plans? I really don't have any at the moment. I really didn't think I'd have much free time but apparently, the trend of me having waaaay too much of it will continue. I guess that means I'll get Glitz to 70 and maybe even PvP a little w/ the 'lock. Ugh, just the thought of it makes me a little sick. Maybe I'll just stick to raiding...
Oh, and one more thing:
That's what coming home from vacation is like. So, here's to time off and hoping that we all get more of it, even if it's just the net going down for a bit. /cheers. =)
