Yesterday, I lit a few candles and sat down at the kitchen table to do some work. Just about the time I was settled in the electricity in my apartment went out. I think the microwave blew a fuse. Anyways, it just so happened that the day my electricity went out was the same day my phone charger stopped working. So I chilled at home, in the dark, without a phone.
Inconvenient-yes, but it was a nice wake up call to remind myself to not take stuff for granted. I think i'll go buy a flashlight this weekend.
