just realized how young we are

on

I was at a retirement party last night & most of the group was older than I am. I don’t usually notice things like this. I feel like once you’re out of high school age is just a number. I have a ton of friends younger & older than me. But what really hit me is when a co-worker said when she was in college there was no internet… NO INTERNET!?! not just no email, or no Facebook or no blogging, lol but absolutely NO internet. What in the world did people do before computers and cell phones. I am constantly connected via my laptop or iPhone. I still can’t really wrap my head around what it must have been like.

Brian and I ended up talking last night after I got home about it, and we realized, w/o technology we wouldn’t even have a relationship. I work 9-5 and he works 4-12 and we fall asleep together, but in the mornings we chat online and the afternoons we text. Technology has enabled us to make a relationship work that would have been unfathomable in the past. Not that it’s easy now, but we make it work. But I’m curious…

I decided that tomorrow I’m taking off from technology. I will report back Monday on how it was… if you don’t hear from me by then, you know the abyss swallowed me up & I’m not returning. wish me luck!
