I have bad news. You might want to grab a box of tissues. I’m leaving, and I’m never coming back. I will miss you all. You’re all such wonderful people. Okay, I really am leaving soon, but I’ll be back. I’m taking a longer than average vacation…a whole month! Part of me doesn’t want to leave for so long, but at the same time, when will I ever get the chance to go on vacation for a month? I feel like I should take advantage of my unemployment-ness. Plus, my boyfriend’s work is seasonal, so he could go away for 4 months if I let him if he wanted to.
Want to know where we’re going? We’re going to…the 19th century! Oh, sorry, I mean…Puerto Rico! The area where my boyfriend is from is SO country. You don’t even get cell phone reception inside his house. I have to walk several feet outside to get maybe one bar. And internet? Forget it. T-Mobile sucks even harder in Puerto Rico than it does over here. Basically, it’s like dial up on a phone. Last year, I didn’t mind so much, but now I have a blog. What the frick is a blogger supposed to do?
I was hoping to get a wireless card/USB modem that would give me internet access for my laptop. But Verizon wants to lock people in with a two year contract for that USB modem. Unfair. I’m going on vacation for a month, not two years. And if you want the monthly option, then the device itself will cost $250, PLUS $20/month for internet service. Ridiculous. I’ll have to check out T-Mobile, but if their cell phone service sucks, I doubt their wireless cards would be any better.
Anyway, this is just my warning to you guys. (I’ll still be around until the first week of December.) While I’m away, please don’t leave me if I don’t post for a while. I’ll be bringing my laptop, so while I’m in the cave at my boyfriend’s house, I can at least think of stuff to write. Also, my cousin has cable, so I can check in when I visit her, and maybe occasionally get a post in. Maybe. The internet goes out all the time when there’s bad weather, so ugh. That’s all I have to say. Oh, and I love you.
