You might wonder why it is that difficult for me to have a weekend without laptop.
See, I am this single girl in her mid twenties, with no boyfriend and doing a software job with hobbies like reading, watching movies and tv shows. In short, I am the geek who doesn’t hack and write code but do all other techie things.
So, these electronic devices play a big role in my life. I literally spend 15 to 18 hours of my day using either my phone or laptop. Mostly, its the laptop. I either work, read a blog or book, or watch a movie or some tv show. That should explain my rapidly changing eye sight. It increased by 2 points in the last few months.
This Friday, with all my extensive usage, it seems like I fried my laptop’s adapter. It just did some “tup” sound and stopped charging and I had to shut down to have enough power for any emergency situation. Since it is an office laptop, I need to wait till Monday to get it fixed.
Tell you the truth, with no new movie releases this week and my besties out of town, I was worried about how to spend the weekend. I was sure that I would be bored to death. I even decided that its time I get myself a tablet.
But reality turned out to be different. It seems like I have been ignoring many things. In fact, many important things, while I was busy, doing rounds in my own world of movies, tv shows, work and ebooks. Today, i got the long pending blood tests done, did all the grocery shopping, slept for 3 hours during the day, read, cleaned and sorted out my racks, books, room and what not, and also managed to have real talks with real people.
I even made a list of things that I can(should) do tomorrow. Each and everything in the list is important and I have no idea how I was postponing them all these days. I am so happy to look around and find a neat and clean room looking back at me. I am surprised to see the number of real books that I bought, but didn’t read. Here is a pic of all my books, that somehow made mw buy them, but couldn’t make me read! I plan not to buy any new books until I finish all of these.
All the while, I forgot about my blogathon and hence the last minute post. Its not that I forgot the task, but I didn’t have time. I was too busy doing all the things I was talking about. The one time I opened WordPress to write up something, I ended up reading all those amazing freshly pressed posts and the ones I subscribed. I was lost in the reading world.
It is so surprising to me that I didn’t have at least one dull moment for the entire day. I’m sure tomorrow will be the same. This is some kind of slap on the cheek to me. I realised how much time I am literally killing doing nothing productive(I still am not sure) , by being away from the real world. So, I decided not to use my laptop at least for one day in a week. I can use my mobile for anything really important. Let’s see how it goes. This way I get to read more books and I don’t think I will be regretting the decision. So, this is my Saturday without laptop. 🙂
Hope you all are enjoying your weekend. Have a nice sunday… yayy. I posted on time.:)
