Why does it sometime seem there is too big of a lapse between mini breakthroughs/good things/nice surprises?
Maybe I’m going about it all wrong, but sometimes just getting a random e-mail or an encouraging shout out can do wonders. I really think I didn’t have so much of this problem until I became so wrapped up in the internet, ya know? For net geeks like me, it feels like there is always something I am trying to go after and get feedback for. When I don’t get it, I’m not devastatingly sad or anything, I’m just a little bummed. It’s kinda sad actually how much I let these little internet things affect my mood or self worth.
Sometimes the only way I think I can get is to give, by e-mailing, leaving comments, going after things and pursuing stuff. That is all good, don’t get me wrong, but there’s a point where maybe I should just lay low and not get so wrapped up in the my crazy internet e-mail checking, web tracking and photo and blog comments and approvals.
I really do think I’m one of those people that has an online addiction. I don’t know when it started, prob. really hardcore the past couple of years with my myspace and flickr accounts. Now my google reader, as great as it is, makes me spend much more time on here than I need to.
Anyone out there feeling the same pains? What are you thoughts?
Until tomorrow, Swellions (you know I’ll be on here).
