My Computer Sabbatical

My past few days without a computer have proved to be quite enlightening. I’m much more productive when I’m not online – or using a computer in general. During that span of 3 days, I spent much time reading (more than usual), made an intercom system out of a broken telephone and something else I found (not sure what it was – can’t remember), and my general mood was different. It’s hard to explain. But it was interesting to say the least.

So, I’ve decided to try not using my computer for a week straight, which also works out well because I’m going to Joanna’s for about 2 or 3 weeks on Valentine’s Day (Saturday). That means, essentially, I’ll be without a computer for approximately a month. It’s going to be tough, mostly because I’ve always had access to a computer in one way or another. And just to make sure I follow through with it, I’m going to take my computer apart and put it in a different room. Who knows? Maybe I won’t even miss it.

We’ll see. Maybe this will even be a kind of revelation for me. Perhaps without a computer I will maximize my potential. Could it be that the tool made to make peoples’ lives easier is the one thing that holds them back? I thought about it, and I can’t remember the last time I actually wrote anything.

In conclusion, I think this will be a great experience. I know this may sound like a small deal to a lot of people, but I seriously think I’m addicted to the internet. A month without it will do me some good. So, feel free to email me (the address is on this page), and I’ll get back to you all when I get back from my “Sabbatical Leave.” lol Until then, farewell my friends.
