So some lessons on not having cable or (instant) Internet:
- Things that I used to think were important and must be done now--aren't. It has been too easy to just stop everything and jump on the internet to solve a problem. Now I just wait. Or realize i it isn't really a problem.
- Things that I probably would have put off (or ignored or just not done) in order to pfaff around on the Internet got done early. Good for me.
- Thigns that before might have upset me (e.g. a bad review for a paper)--now I have time to think about them and I can deal with them fine,
- Books. Books are awesome.
Look around the door frame.
