No Internet..

As I look at other people’s responses to the daily create I have to think they are much stronger then me or I think very differently then others. If there was not internet I would lose my mind. My life depends so much around the internet. Google is my savior sometimes for my work and if I did not have that it is hard to find answers to questions that I did not have. Communicating with my girlfriend will be difficult because she is hard of hearing on sometimes we have to rely on software that helps transcribe what I say so she can understand. School work will be hard. I love Computer Science and all but it makes me want to pull my hair out sometimes. The online resources helps me in a jam even more articles and such for school. Getting music means we will actually have to go to the store and attempting to see friends across the world means that I have to spend hundreds to thousands of dollars to see them unless they send me a video through the mail. Even though we were able to live without internet for so long it will be difficult to fathom not having internet of any sort waking up. It will be a disaster for society as a whole because it is not really just a commodity anymore, it is need.

Life Without Internet

If I woke up one morning to find that there was no internet, there would be a lot of adjusting to do. Scrolling through Facebook and Instagram would no longer be my first daily task. I would not be able to take advantage of Whatsapp and Viber to keep in touch with my friends across the world. However, I think living a life with no internet could and would be beneficial. I might actually pick up a book and learn something rather than filling my brain with hundreds of acquaintance’s every move. I would be more alert to my surroundings and see nature’s beauty more clearly while I am outside instead of staring at my phone. Waking up to no Internet would cause me to not be so up to date, but appreciate simpler things.

If there were no Internet

If there were no internet, I would find a different way to communicate. There is always an alternate. In the past, people found ways of communicating before the internet and I am sure that I would find some other way to communicate. My church friend says, “There is always a ram in the bush.” When things don’t go as planned then use another alternative or just use what you have. Of course, without the internet, it would be totally inconvenient but I would survive. Some people are still not computer literate and don’t use the internet anyway, yet, they are communicating. These people aren’t affected by the internet and they are communicating in different ways. In short, I would survive without the internet because there are other medians to consider and use. I would choose what communication that is best at that moment and time.

I would pick up a newspaper and read about what happened yesterday not 2 minutes ago.

No internet? Big deal.

Society has lived without internet before and I think that we can do it again. All we have to do is use pen and paper for assignments, mail carriers to mail things that need to get to people and send letters to communicate. Oh and we have telephones so that’s another way to communicate. But, I’ll be honest here, I’d probably just create a new internet because, let’s face it, now that we’ve experienced how easy things are with it, how can we live without it?

This is why we are all gathering yarn and string, right? So, even if the grid falls down, we can still connect. Just imagine that: a world full of yarn connections. It would be like a huge spider web of ideas. Wait. That’s the Internet. This would be the Webnet. Yeah.
