12:05 am - Love/ Hate relationship w the net
So I just spent the last 2 hours of my life on the internet trying to do my best to be in touch w the lovely folks at home & I want a refund. Either people were not around or people's pages didn't load or whatnot...it was a waste of time. I have a love/hate relationship w the net. Sometimes it's great, and sometimes it's not. It's frustrating when you try to send off a message to someone & the page won't load or the info gets erased or emails aren't getting delivered to their box till the next day, by which time you're no longer around to chat back & forth. I'm not satisfied & I'll leave it at that. Frustration frustration frustration. I just hate the fact that at times i walk away feeling more unsatisfied than I did before i even sat down at the computer.
Tomorrow we may or may not head back to Gibeon. It depends on how late/early we finish w the workshop. As with many things here, no one knows & it's all up in the air & very ambigious. Therefore you may or may not see me around tomorrow. I'm hoping we don't leave tomorrow 1) because it's not safe to drive at night in Africa, 2) because it'd be nice to have one more night w other PCVs & 3) I'd like to try to hop on the net since today was a total waste. But we will see- I am not the driver, so I don't decide. If you don't see me around tomorrow, it probably means we finished early & left. I'll see you when I see you. I'll be back @ Gibeon next week & I don't know if I'll have net access then.
And if I sound frustrated, (And i know I do) you are right on. Today was incredibly frustrating & trying and just when I thought I could put a little ease to that by coming on the net, the net turns its back on me. Peace.
You all take care. I need sleep, & I need a new day to get a fresh start again. It's 12:15am. Lekker slaap.
