Mental Rehab: Day 1

In case anybody was wondering “whither Judiang,” I’ve journeyed to the wilds of Ohio for an annual get-together with friends at a cabin in the woods by a lake.  My friend has just finished showing me around the new school where she teaches. It’s a very lovely 21st century school with all the bells and whistles but in a location so rural there’s no phone reception.  This causes a cognitive dissonance in my citified, always connected mind.  But it gets better: the cabin has dicey phone reception and no wi-fi.  I will spend a week not cruising the internet, not playing Borderlands 2, not obsessively viewing strange crap on YouTube, not tweeting at 2AM instead of sleeping, not NOT.  Instead I will engage in unfamiliar activities like talking with live people in the same room, walking about, pointing at unusual animals (read: horsies and piggies), eating nutritious food, and letting the sun touch me.  My iPad has a tethered keyboard, so I could like – write – with no internet distractions.  My friend thinks I can do this for a week.  Uh huh.  She also promises that she’ll take me to an internet cafe if I start seem unhinged.

I wonder how she’ll be able to tell.

Uh oh, she’s finished closing her classroom for the school year.  Wish me luck.  I’ll post when I can.

Oh, and Happy Guy Day.

  1. Sounds like the perfect set-up for a relaxed and relaxing get-away. Enjoy and try not to climb the walls. The way down doesn’t hurt, but the stop does. 😉

  2. As for me it sounds lovely,Judiang:) just relax and don’t approach to the horse from the back 😉

  3. I’m sure you can manage the lack of phone and internet and hopefully get some writing done as well. Hope you ladies have a great time!

  4. When you just can’t get on the net, it can be really productive (part of the reason I am tense about having it at home …) enjoy the week!

  5. Enjoy your haven in the wilderness and I hope you don’t become unhinged due to lack of internet access. We will all be here waiting for your return.
