Connected Once Again.

Having no internet sucks. So the thought of moving and finding a new internet company seemed like a huge hassle. So I thought: ‘Hey, I kinda like the package that I’m using right now, I’ll just call them and tell them I want it transferred to the new location.’

It sounds dandy, but in reality it was horrible. We waited an entirety of 3 whole days for the dumbos to come install our internet but no one showed up, no one called to tell us why either. After the third stand up, enough was enough. I thanked them for their service but would not be needing it after all, called up the nearest provider that I knew was reliable and ended up getting an even better package than before. Nothing beats that!

So now I have the internet again which means I finally can get back to netflix! And cross stitching, seeing as all my patterns are online. Also video games! And buzzfeed oh and I listen to all my music on youtube so I get that back too! No more screaming heavy metal. yay.

To be completely honest though, it was kind of nice to not have any internet. I don’t want to seem rude but we were completely oblivious to what was happening out in the world. And it seems a lot had happened, horrible and tragic events that I’m sad about, but had no idea about without the internet.

Being disconnected made me want to lead a super simple life. It made me want to cook meals and try my hand at a little baking. It made me physically go to the movie store to rent some movies. It felt good to not be glued to a device or computer because I will admit, I use those a lot. It was also nice to not be constantly reminded of everyone’s birthdays on facebook.

I think everyone should take the time to unplug their phones, pick up an old book that you loved or maybe that guitar you’ve always wanted to get good at but never put the time and the effort into it. Take up that old hobby or passion and do it! It’s those types of things in your life that will give you the most joy, not watching someone else do it on youtube. Or look at the wonderful things other people have done on instagram.

There’s a whole world out there for you to explore, right out your doorstep. (And no, that doesn’t mean by catching them all through pokemon go. Though you could catch a few along the way…)

That felt deep.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban for Gamecube

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban for GCAh, Harry Potter… Those books and movies were my childhood obsession. I’ve read the books over 5 times each.

When my parents gave me this game as a gift, you can imagine how excited I was. This game was so well done compared to the 1st and second which I played with my Game Boy Advanced. This game was more interactive. You had to search the grounds to find ingredients and it was awesome to be able to explore the grounds. You really had a good feel of how big Hogwarts really is.

For anyone who is a real Harry Potter fan, it’s always fun to imagine what Hogwarts would look like. You’ve read the books and you’ve watched the movies but you couldn’t really get the big picture of the entire world of Harry Potter. That’s why I liked this game a lot.

I recommend it to all those kids out there who love Harry Potter and adults too because it’s a fairly easy game to play and it brings back many memories about Harry Potter.

I give this game a 10 out of 10.
