To go internet free for 30 days? I mean no FB, no JM, no email, no news...Do you think you could do it?

I'd have to pay bills, which I do entirely online, and I seriously doubt DH could do it, so it could not be a good thing for me! Although I have to admit at TIMES I miss the simplier lifestyle...

Thank you *kiliki* for the beautiful siggy!

I pay all of my bills online, I work from home via the internet and I look up phone numbers and directions online and we recently got rid of cable and bought an antenna for local channels, but do a hulu plus and netflix for entertainment via the internet so we would be in trouble without the internet!

Thanks Katidid622 for my adorable siggy!

No. As much as I (sometimes) want to throw every piece of technology I own out the window, I wouldn't be able to. We pay our bills, I do my schoolwork (online), etc... It just wouldn't work.

I would have a very hard time going without. I'm addicted for sure. Good thing I don't have a smart phone or I would be on it all the time when I am out and about, checking email, JM, and Facebook. But I do get annoyed when I'm with someone that is constantly checking their stuff on their smart phone. Really, do you need to check it right now? What's so important that you can't wait until you get home? I also miss the simpler days when all this technology didn't exist.

I would be screwed. Everything I do at work requires the internet.

I probably could go without social sites for 30 days but the sites i use at work and to pay my bills i need.

I'm a web worker, and I have a online life quite full and important so I couldn't.
