I don’t know if anyone has noticed but, I haven’t been online much these days. For a couple of reasons…
One, we switched from Bright House to Uverse. We didn’t like Bright House because the DSL was sort of slow and I need instant gratification. If I say I want to go to Twitter, I don’t mean in 3 seconds, I mean in 1.2 seconds. I’m from the “I want it NOW” generation. What can I say?
We heard amazing things about Uverse and it showed up by our house finally. We had it installed. It took them hours. Seriously, it was an all day affair. And it blows chunks. We’ve had it for a bit over a month. AT LEAST once a week, we’ve had a technician out. Because our internet has been intermittent, at best. Our cable…sucks. The picture rolls like old time tv used to do. And…our phones are always static-y.
We should have know AT&T was going to suck. Because our cellphone coverage is AT&T too. And…it sucks.
The other reason. It’s kind of a big one.
I hate Twitter.
It makes me feel like a desperate school girl trying to get the attention of the high school heart throb. I hated being ignored in high school. Not gonna do it to myself online. I’m sure it’s not intentional. Twitter streams are jam packed with obsessive twitterers. But, you know what? It still sucks. In real life, I won’t carry on conversations with people who ask a question and turn their back for the answer. And, I don’t necessarily talk to myself on a constant basis, either. I’m not doing it on twitter either. If you want me, I’m really good at emailing. I’m even better at talking on the phone. Just ask for my deets. Because, I don’t know how fast I’m going to be back and when I am, I don’t know for how long. Love you guys but not loving the Twitter thing anymore.
I’ll be there for social media jobs though. But, I’m getting paid for that so it’s worth being lost in a stream of tweets for some shoe money!
In a way, not having consistent internet has been a blessing in disguise. Not that I’ve gotten any more work done than a typical day. But, I’ve gotten over the whole Twitter addiction.
It’s kinda nice.
I don’t like to be addicted to anything anyways. Except coffee. That’s ok. It doesn’t make me insecure, just shaky if I drink too much.
So yeah, now you know.
You know, just in case you missed me and were wondering.
