IN THE heat of summer. And I'll make this short.

Daily temperature averages outside usually is at 34 degrees Celsius. It's hot. In some case, searing hot. And that makes everybody want to be at the beach to soak some UV rays, get tanned, eat a lot of grilled seafood. All the while taking photos of pretty much everything and uploading it all to your Instagram feed.

Summer beach

That'd be nice and dandy if the beach resort you're in has free wi-fi but if not, you'll probably go through some form of internet withdrawal.
Don't.

It's summer for cryin' out loud! It's that time of the year when we all are in vacation mode and we're not thinking so much about school requirements or work loads. We all deserve R&R time to time and this is the time!

Take it from me, it's so much better that you just upload your photos after you get home and use your home connection. Enjoy your time with whoever you are with at the beach right now. And if you're reading this through your phone or tablet or laptop WHILE at the beach, STOP!

Go offline!

Right now!

Enjoy the beach! Enjoy the summer!

But wait, let me get that selfie.
