|05:51 am - No more obsessive friends-page refreshing?|
I've been noticing that since my computer broke down and I
had the excuse not to didn't get to check my f-list for that week while it was in the shop for repairs, even after I've gotten it back I haven't been keeping up with my f-list. Before, every morning when I get up first thing is to check email and check f-page for all the new posts that were made between when I went to bed and when I got up, then I would go about washing up and such. If I had to go out that day, I'd make sure to check my f-page as soon as I got back, just dump the bag/purse on the bed and hop on the computer. If I don't have plans to go out that day, I'd just sit at my computer all day, refreshing that f-page about every 5 minutes (talk about obsessive eh?). Then before I go to bed I'd always make sure to check the f-page once more.
Now it's like, I check my f-page once every 3 or 4 days and with an average of about 300 new posts everyday popping up on my f-page...well you do the math (my math sucks, I couldn't figure out 12x8 yesterday ;____;), so obviously I don't read all of them anymore, just like, whichever's on the first 2 or 3 pages. I had been getting tired of this obsessive need to be on livejournal whenever I'm at home and it's like that week without my compy gave me the incentive (or the excuse) to actually put down livejournal for more than 5 minutes. Makes me kind of relieved that I haven't gone through like, withdrawal symptoms or anything yet which I had always been afraid I might get seeing as I was so addicted to this thing, but also kind of sad that that need isn't there anymore to keep up (always that tiny spark of a fear that I missed a post with some sexy scans of Kazuki or someone selling some good stuff at low prices on some of the selling journals).
Oh well, I guess that's life, and it's not like I'm leaving lj completely, I don't think I can ever completely put lj down 100%, plus it's just fun to get to share photos and stories (not to mention relaxing and theraputic to rant and vent in the public lol).
So if I seem more scarce these days, well, probably cuz I am ^^;; But have no fear, I'm still lurking in the dark little corners of your lj :D

I'd say...it's been a while-but hey, everyone needs a break from their habits every now and then. It's good that your taking your LJ obsession in moderation-I really am surprised that you checked it that much prior to your computer crashing!Take care-James
Yeah it was really like an obsession. Been wanting to ask you something James, are you on facebook at all? I know Christine and Liz and all of them are, and I've got them added as friends, even though I don't check my facebook that often I thought maybe we can keep better contact with one another on there?
How's your summer been? Are you taking summer courses? I have 2 courses this summer (they started last week). One is Theories of Democracy and one is Economics of Developing Nations, I have them both on the same days (Mondays and Wednesdays) for 3 hours per class, each time, so on those two days I'm like, drowning in politics and my head's spinning with all the world issues you get bombarded with @____@

No-I used to do the facebook thing, but I found it really distracting so I left it to die. I've been taking summer courses (I'm taking "causes of development & underdevelopment" and next month I'm taking "politics of latin america")...they've been a handful...your courses sound really interesting-how are they going so far? I hope you're not stressing yourself out lol-take care ok?-James
Yeah I don't really get the whole facebook thing, but then maybe that's because I got my lj ^^;; Usually I just go on there once every week or so and add anyone that friended me and reply to any messages I get...I don't get why people like using that instead of email...it's the same thing isn't it? Ah well.
My courses are pretty good, the profs are alright too, it's just 6 hours of classes any day is a bit much, especially in such heavy-topic courses ;___; Well at least it's just until the beginning of August and then it's all done, suffer just one and a half months and it's all over~
