short update

The internet has been out at our apartment for the past week. I've heard that a new wireless connection is being installed for our complex, but the deadline for that has already passed. It's interesting to see how much I use the internet during the course of an ordinary day - based on how inconvenient things are now that it's gone.

I'm sitting at a café right now, taking a break from writing a medical anthropology abstract on the cross-cultural etiology, symptomatology, and illness behavior of schizophrenic individuals across a multitude of cultures. One of six assignments due within the next two days. However, there should be another Lorenzo update on the way when I have a bit more time. Until next time ... zàijiàn!

Thanks, Adrienne. After reading of your own difficulties I'm wondering if perhaps it's 'that time of year' for faulty internet affairs?

another lj friend just posted about her internet's revival after a three week absence and i know how hard it is to go w/out!! for two weeks at the beginning at august i only had a work connection and it was more difficult than i'd imagined. i missed it immensely!
i o.d.'d in the first few days after my connection was restored. it was quite the fix!

I try to grab some time on the library computers on campus when I can, but it never feels like enough time. I hope I don't overdose when our connection is repaired - it's kind of nice being able to concentrate on homework for longer periods of time than I could when the internet was such a large distraction!
