So, finally I would say, I´m back online. I can tell you, it was quite intense for me. I really felt like some kind of addict.
The first few days were really intense. I constantly felt like I missed something ( and I did! Ilnoa Andrews hosted a signed cover falt contest and I´m just sure I would have won this time!). It felt really strange not being able to go online whenever I wanted (when I was at home. seriously thought of getting myself a smartphone, but I re-considered.
The phone company is probably preparing a law suit because of me harrassing them (I think it is okay to call multiple times a day. It´s not my fault that I have to be at university and cant be there when they supposedly are free).
In the second week, I stopped by an internet café to check my mails.I also tried to post something, but I had a very… well awkward experience there. I wanted to do a In My Mailbox post and therefore looked for a picture of the Raziel cover.
Jup, that one. Behind me sat a bunch of teenage boys who thought it incredibly funny to spy on me. Imagine their delight when they caught me looking for that cover.
I kind of decided against further posting in an internet café from this day on.
There is one thing however that really amazed my during my forced break from blogging: I actually learned something from it:
First: the world does not end when you don´t have internet connection.
Second: You would be amazed at how much time you actually find for reading. I never realized just how much of my free time I waste (?) by browsing the internet. I´m not talking things that actually make sense, like visit blogs. I´m talking about following random links and stuff.
Third: After my first week of anxiety, I was actually a little bit more relaxed. Huh. Who knew.
So even though I hated being out of the loop, it was not as horrible as I would have toufght. I´m really glad however that I´m back now
And the good thing about my break: I have tons of reviews I can post now! Because my Live Wirter still worked offline!
