Terminally online

Today, a thunderstorm killed our internet and I realized there were lots of things I could do "in the real world", but… I’m too tired to do any of them. FML

I can't blame you too much cause of the pandemic, but feel free to take initiative by getting vaccinated and start moving on your feet once more.

By the way, if you had an Uninterruptible Power Supply powering your internet modem and router then chances are you wouldn’t have lost the internet connection for battery operated devices like laptops, tablets, smartphones. Just look online at Amazon or your favorite seller for “Uninterruptible Power Supply”. It plugs into the AC power outlet on the wall and you plug your critical stuff into it (such as the modem, router, and internet to phone box if you get home phone service over the internet). Don’t plug high power non-critical devices into the UPS like a TV, stereo, or a desktop computer or printer as they will quickly drain the UPS. Because most internet providers in the USA also provide optional phone services and those have legally required minimum reliability requirements - Most internet providers have backup power built into their distribution system. So as long as you can power your modem and internet router on your end, they will usually stay running during a power outage.

It sounds like you may have depression. Talk to a therapist- depression is a serious illness and will only get worse if you don’t treat it.

you got all that from "I don't feel like doing anything when it's dark and stormy outside" ?

It didn’t say OP was tired because it was dark and stormy. It just said he’s tired. And that was the assumption I made based on my own experiences. I’m not necessarily saying is true of course, just throwing it out as a possibility.
