How was your weekend? Mine was great. I had some new experiences that were phone related, that sorta continued into yesterday (and I hope will make this post more interesting).
Sunday was my first experience using wifi. Or, I should say, trying to use wifi. A lot of networks my phone picked up were secured (named for people, home, the phone company, and even NothingsFree). So that was a no-go.
Which brings me to yesterday.
I decided to get things in gear, and go to Dunkin Donuts with my phone. The signal seemed a little weak in there (don’t know if it was because of the cloudy weather, another guy using the wifi too, or what-have-ya). And along with my downloading, updating, and deleting, $1.06 and five donut holes went down in the effort. Money well spent.
Because of the experience. To you, wifi may be as new as three-week-old cheese. But to me, wifi is a strange mix of super-fast downloading and being able to surf the internet when I’m not in a chair, in front of my desktop computer. And all without pulling from my pool of (limited) mobile data.
That’s also part of the reason why I write fiction. Trying to give people a new experience interests me. And I write emails and other persuasive pieces to help people who want to solve a problem, have a new experience, or what-have-ya get closer to that goal.
Today is the second-to-last day of the year. December 30, 2014 can also never been experienced again, after today. Think of it with renewed hope for the future, to do more, to do better.
Because that’s something we could all use more of (including me).
Until next time,
