plus iím saving a ton of moneyó besides the $140/yr for the service itself (or $240 if you go month-to month)iíd have to pay $600 for the isp to upgrade my connection plus and extra $40/mo for the new speeds/caps on a 2-year contract. do the math, in my head it adds up to nearly $2K in 2 years. thatís above the $100/mo i already pay on internet. fuc dat.
additionally, consider that euro-football is not scheduled at recreational times for meó bundesliga is on saturday mornings when a grown-ass man would be fixing the house or truck or doing errands, champions games are smack dab in the middle of the workday (3 hour lunchtimes are so aristocratic), and so they tend to skew my work schedules and hurt productivity a bit.
all would be worth it for sure if i was in a different situation, i.e., good internet by default and my life already in order, but for this transitional periodóno. so iím getting a big productivity payoff that would not be fun forever but works on a temporary basis. like having an extra part-time job all of the sudden. working long hours all week plus saturdays and iím seeing the payoff.
Well at least you know that football is always there (for better or worse). All those stresses and joys will be back soon enough!
By the way, sorry to be nosy but what is it you do?
