I am kind of ashamed to admit that having free access to a computer for so long did in fact make me spoiled. Well lil ol betsy finally decided to give in after 6 or 7 years and I was left without a computer with no immediate access to one whenever I wanted it. Nor did I have a tablet, what I had in fact was an old smartphone that I could connect to my wireless and essentially use as an ipod.
as some background information I have rather large hands and attempting to type on a 3 inch touch screen is like watching a gorilla do ballet. Not to mention I think the phone was a good five years old so it ran like a snail. This all may sound like mindless complaining but being in the midst of an LDR makes you very dependent on technology.
It limited how much I could talk to Reagan, it limited how much we could skype, and doing anything else such as watching movies together was kind of out the window. While I was only out of a working computer for about two weeks it did teach me to appreciate the thing that a lot of people consider a basic check list item. Had i been the age I am now 15 years ago when personal computers were still just really getting started I most likely wouldn’t have met Reagan. For that I am grateful for the randomness of the universe that put me where I am at this very moment.
