Me & the internet

I experimented a few minutes ago with trying to be without the internet, with a sudden half hearted attempt it wasn't bound to be successful, but it causes me to want to reflect on internet addiction.

It's always on while awake, i live a sedentary life, and most of the time is with the chromebook on my lap as i read. Having the internet on there is like a source of calm, or it allows calm to be present. One may say it's only distractions, but distractions can just as well happen when it's off and you're thinking about what you might be missing. With it there, one can ironically be more focused and less jittery.

I may not be doing anything with it, but it's necessary regardless.

Yeah, I can't even remember what I did before the internet.

I mean with a computer I can practically fix anything all the knowledge in the world is there. ...
