everyday loading for a gazillion hours, upload failed, weak connection, glitch, call dropped. I feel like majority of my time on the internet is spent waiting. Usually I feel like slowness, fighting that sense of urgency and instant gratification, is anticolonial - but this feels more like stalling, like a barrier. It's also very agitating - like I get mad/disheartened. Especially with the word 'connect', then what does that mean for how systemically slow internet connection is. And electricity/ 'power'? Oof, remember when there was light off every day? That was during Mahama's time. I remember we would study in the dark bc it was my final year of high school. I once didn't have power for almost a week and this is in the city in an affluent neighbourhood so.....yikes....i don't really know as much about the physical nature/infrastucture of the internet but I'm studying it bc im trying to make sense of this
