Minimizing technological distractions

This week’s blog is a practically a confession, although I prefer to think of it as an analysis. The fact is I’m obsessed. I’m obsessed with the Internet. The Internet and all it’s glory – and not so glory.
I’m hard pressed to remember a day gone by that I have not dwindled away the daylight hours on social networking sites, and ridiculous “memes” and “cheezburger” cats. On the rare occasion I’m hanging out with friends, I’m constantly thinking about how I could make something humorous we said into a Facebook status, or how a certain picture could improve our images. When I’m supposed to be writing a blog or making a chart on my computer, I go out of my way to distract myself with these time-wasting utilities.
So, for the next month, I’m not going to be using Facebook, Twitter, or looking at cat videos. The expected (hoped for) results are (after the headaches, increased appetite, and shaking) that I actually get my homework done, and increase the quality of my social life.
I know I’m not the only one who has this addiction, and I’m hoping that through my experience over the next month will help myself and another Internet Anonymous member. I will post updates along with my regular blogs.
