Sacrifice

So, The electricity was cut today for over three hours, forcing me to forfeit my weekly viewing of Grey’s Anatomy.

That’s another technological or infrastructural downfall of this “sweet T&T” country of mine. If electricity isn’t cut at least once a month in this nation, then something just has to be wrong. The sole company [T&TEC] that manages and supplies electricity for our country certainly is not capable of doing its job. Do you ever see Manhattan loosing power unless as a result of some natural disaster? But of course we can’t compare apples and oranges [Manhattan and Trinidad]. I realized today that this country is the simple life, and these little [or major] quirks – like power going down for hours, low bandwidth, and the worst customer service – are the price [sacrifice] we pay for the simple life. Welcome to the Caribbean, savvy!

Ok that was my rant, now back to the point: so, having nothing to do in the dark, I decided to retire to bed. After 30 minutes of rolling and tossing, I heard the click of my stereo coming on, power was restored! And instead of “great, goodnight”, the only words that came to my mind were: “must…………check………….e-mail…………”

And here I am; sacrificing sleep for connectivity. I think I have a problem.

Hi, my name is Jevin, and I’m a weboholic.

No I don't know you, I was just randomly browsing through blogs. How was living in New York? I would love to live there.
