Don’t you hate those moments when you feel like your life is just full of so much busyness? That’s how I’ve felt for the last month or so. I just have so many activities and other stuff to do that I feel like other things are just falling to the side and it makes me a bit sad.
Do I care that it takes a week to get my kitchen clean? No. Do I care that my flowers are half dead because I get home so late that I don’t feel like watering them? No. Do I care that I’m not getting to update my blog and/or read other blogs? Yes. Yes, I do. How crazy is that? I could care less about some of my real life things going undone, but it makes me really sad that I am missing out on so much within my internet community.
Trying to keep up with internet happenings is hard for me anyway because…..wait for it……I don’t have internet at home. Well, I kind of have internet but only in the form of my iPhone. While I love all that my phone can do, it doesn’t completely satisfy all of my internet needs. So, basically, I only have internet access at work or at my parents’ house. At work it’s always hit and miss. Sure we have times where we get caught up and get online, but my lack of internet at home means I have a lot of things that I like to look at. By the time I check my (multiple) email accounts and maybe facebook or twitter, more work comes in and I leave the internet once again. After all, work is work…..I’m paid to do my work, not to play on the internet, so I have to do it. Going to my parents’ house is not a problem…..but the whole busy thing that I have going on lately also means that I’m too busy to go and sit at their house for a couple hours just to get online.
So, I end up feeling like I’m losing touch. I’m lucky if I can update my blog once a week lately. The thing that upsets me the most about it all is that this seemed to happen right after I made the jump to my own hosting/domain. I was doing so well with updating and connecting, I decided to leave the world of free blogging, and now I’m too busy to take advantage of the money that I spent.
Does this ever happen to anyone else? Or is it just me? What does the busyness of life get in the way of for you?
