Okay, so I’m quite annoyed right now. Power outages (and my mother at this point) are just nerve wracking.
The only thing working in our house right now (aside from our cell phones is my laptop) and all the good that does since I’m basically lost without an internet connection. Never knew how energy-addicted I was before just now.
I’m amazed at how our neighbors can still use a saw. In the dark!
When ever there’s a power outage, I always think “Oh, good now I can just relax”. That is the first instinctive thought. About fifteen minutes in, instead of holding on to that idea, I end up thinking of things I could do which all require energy, which usually involve crossing things off my ever-growing to-do list and only very few fun things:
- water plants,
- rearrange my closet,
- wash clothes,
- write e-mail replies,
- make pop corn,
- watch a movie or episode of a series,
- read (good thing I can do that on my tablet or laptop or else I’d have to imagine myself into a world where one can only read at candlelight; and my eyes would not thank me at all for that.)
This is what I could think of off the top of my head.
How about you? Are you the same way, and forget about having one of the best excuses for being able to just relax and go to bed early, and instead start listing to yourself what you could be doing if the power was on?
