When my phone is on, I am generally not that engaged. I’m not a super late sleeper. I don’t spend all my free time in front of a computer, and so I pretty much only get up and go about my day. This is why I am sometimes confused when friends are confused when they ask me “what are you doing today”.
This is the best thing in the world. I recently went through a period of time when I was so unproductive on the internet that it just felt like I had disconnected from the internet. I’m so proud of myself for finally figuring out there is a way to be less unproductive online.
The internet has become an essential tool for the millennial’s and Generation Y’s to get all of their information from, which has made it much harder to find the best information about homes and construction techniques. Unfortunately, all of that information is out there, yet for many millennials, it is a foreign concept.
The “err internet disconnected” phrase is a common phrase that many of us hear when the internet is down. The phrase is not referring to anything inherently wrong with the internet, but rather that the internet is not the appropriate place to go to get information from other people. In terms of the internet, “err out” is not the right phrase.
You know what the worst part is? It’s not the fact that you’re disconnected. For me, the worst part is the internet. As soon as I step into my house, I am plugged into an interwebby world. I get my news from the internet. I get my emails from the internet. I get my photos from the internet. I get my Facebook news from the internet. I get my news on Twitter and Instagram from the internet.
Internet disconnected is the latest trend in home repair. It means that a certain number of cables are disconnected from your internet, either temporarily or permanently. These can include DSL, cable, fiber, wireless, and cellular. This means that you will not be able to surf the web or send emails via your phone or tablet.
Internet disconnects are so frequent and frustrating that it’s hard to grasp why we still make them. It’s like we’ve been given a lifetime license to not have any responsibility for our online behavior. We’re told that we’re too busy to spend time worrying about our digital footprint (a topic for a different time) and that we shouldn’t even have to think about it.
I feel like I am always caught on a loop when I travel to another country. I’m constantly trying to figure out what is going on in the back of my mind, or where my phone is, and I find myself missing out on the magic of the local culture. I have learned that I need to try and put things in perspective as I travel. This past summer I was in the Dominican Republic on a business trip and felt the need to go to the airport after 7pm.
