Mindless Wandering

Lately I have noticed that I am getting pretty good at wasting time doing stupid things. I mean, I am catching myself daydreaming or just looking at sites online when I really should be doing more important stuff.

I used to be fully addicted to the site etsy.com. I could not go a day without going on that site to check out my store or to chat with the many cool crafters in the chat room. It was really bad. Finally I have weened myself off that site. Like many of my addictions, my attention and love for them quickly fade away.

Next is myspace and facebook. I started off as a big myspace supporter and not really a fan of facebook. I loved the way you could make your profile yours and really be creative. But Reiggin eventually got me hooked to facebook, and myspace went out the window. I do enjoy the cleanliness of facebook's design. I love all the applications. With my friend Lisa's help, I have calmed down on the applications. For a while I had gone application crazy. But currently, I am in love with the petz application. I know it is cheesy and nerdy to have an online pet, but I truly enjoy it. It is so much fun training and feeding and playing with the pet. You can also compete and I love seeing if I can beat my friend's Lisa's dog. Sadly I can't, most of the time.

Another time killer for me is checking out my and my friends blogs. Mainly I just get a kick out of checking my own blog's tracker and seeing all the people who come and go and how long they stay. For the most part, it is only Reiggin, my sister Susan, Aunt Annette, Uncle Robert, and my best friend, Lisa, that visit my blog. But every now and again I do get some strange locations that pop up. I have even had a few overseas locations that have popped up. That is the coolest. But I enjoy looking and my friend's Lisa's blog and my boyfriend Reiggin's blog. It is a quick and easy way to keep track of them and see what is going on in their minds and day to day life. I will admit though, we all need to work on keeping our blogs up to date. I am the worse, I must admit. Sometimes I just go though a dry spell and don't really feel like writing.

My all time favorite time killer at the moment is craigslist.com. I can spend hours on here. Reiggin is really who got me hooked. It started off with he and I looking for a rental house. It has just gone crazy. I will look at jobs, clothes, furniture, anything you can think of. It just intrigues me to see what people are selling and at what price. So this site is really filling my time and keeping me from important stuff.

But what can I say? I do love all my sites and would not want to part with them. So what things keep you busy and away from your real responsibilities? I am curious to see how well we truly can lose our selves in meaningless activities.

P.S. I had to make a correction to this post. I forgot to list one of my favorite readers, my boyfriend Reiggin.  Also, no fear Reiggin, you are not one of the addictions that quickly fade away :-). Dork!

Hope I'm not an addiction.

What am I, chopped liver?
