31 Thank Yous: Days Without Internet

Each day in August I’m saying “thank you” to one person/place/thing that’s helped define who I am and where I am today. I’m encouraging each of you to participate on your own blog. and if you’re the hashtag type, we’re using #31ty on Twitter.

Dear Days Without Internet,

Ironic that I’m writing you a thank you note on the Internet, but I guess that’s just how I role. Today’s note (because it’s Friday and let’s face it, we all have better things – or at least other things we’d LIKE to be doing right now), is short and sweet.

Today I thank you, internet-less days, for keeping me sane. For reminding me that people will survive without reading a tweet by me and that the world keeps spinning if I don’t wish that one guy I used to go to high school with but never talk to anymore “Happy Birthday”.

It took me a while to get to this thank you note today because, well, I haven’t had Internet. Fitting, right? Here’s to you continuing to remind me that life will go on if I’m not watching stupid Youtube Videos or, yes, even posting on my blog.
