This week my school upped their website blocking, so now with the upgrade I can’t visit 90% of the sites I used to. This means my daily news reading time will be cut down quite substantially. Not that my NET browsing interferes with work, because it doesn’t. And this NEC work computer is old and ready to explode (or implode –whichever happens first) I wouldn’t dare download any programs on it. However, I had been using it to find some photos for Power Point presentations and the occasional desktop picture to keep things exciting.
Yet to my surprise, as I tried to view the pages I’ve visited every morning for the past two years, I was shocked to find I was denied access –not to just one or two of the sites but to all seven. It’s almost as if they decided I was wasting valuable time by staring at my monitor every morning catching up on world events as sip tea and wait for classes to begin. I wouldn’t be complaining except for the full hour of free time I have every morning with nothing to do before classes begin –I figured the news, a little in the know of what’s happening around the world, was the best thing to start my day off with.

I guess from now on I’ll just have to bring a book. Or two, or three… since I tend to go through that many a month on average anyway. I might actually crack open my copy of “The Fairy Queen” and get some serious reading in.
