Thanks for sharing this Ronny. I experience this a lot. The longest run without internet is when we moved to a new place. I was offline for like a month and a half. The cables weren’t laid and I had to wait that long. It was a bliss, though. I happen to talk a lot with family and friends, I went out sometimes, I even started a workout routine for the month. It all halted as soon as the internet arrived.
But I still experience some offline days due to occasional network failure in our area. The best part is, my friends will be offline too. Besides, it also helps me to be creative without any distractions. I mostly write some short stories, if this is the case. It gets better without distractions, and the motivation surge is way awesome, as I don’t have to care about anything else.
I didn’t own a modern smartphone until March 2015. I had a Nokia 5800. Now I have Lumia 830! Trust me… My life was way better without these annoying notifications every damn minute. Now that there is a notification center in Windows 10, it just got worse. Disabled them anyway. In a corner, just like you, I still wish for a total internet blackout so often to refresh ourselves. :)
