I fill my life with so much that doesn't matter. I spend too much time watching vids and looking at pics of things that I really don't give a shit about. I'll even click links while thinking "Why are you doing that? You don't really give a damn about the thing you just clicked on!"

I keep filling my hours with podcasts that I listen to but don't really hear and reddit posts that I read and forget about 2 seconds after and bad fanfics that I read while thinking "this is really badly written why do I keep reading?"

The truth is that I'm just really filling up the silence with noise. Noise that doens't matter and noise that I honestly have no interest in. There are hours and days of my short life that I have filled with nothingness.

Time I should and could have filled with things that realy matter. Thing that I actually give a damn about.

It's gotten so bad that I have to listen to a vid with background noises just to be able to read. And a lot of the stuff I read is unimportant stuff, stuff I don't even enjoy reading.

Why the hell do I do this?

It has to stop.

And the first step is to block a large amount of sites on the internet so I can't access them without some hard work.

I'll go do that right now.

I was having the same thoughts about Facebook.

I realized that Facebook was dangerous for me when I started ignoring my real life dog in order to raise a small cute animal in a facebook game.

I deleted all my FB games and unfriended everyone I didn't have actual real life contact with and then just kind of left FB. I check it maybe 2 or 3 times a week but that's it.

Ribeye steaks on the grill, sliced red bell peppers and celery, buttered rice and carrot cake with bourbon frosting.

I know what you mean. When I have commissions I have to get done I have to avoid my office completely - my computer calls me with an irresistible siren song otherwise. And it's mostly junk. I refuse to have a FB account and avoid game sites like the plague. But I still waste too much time. I have reduced the number of people I keep in touch with and have eliminated vexatious people from my "friends" lists. I hope we continue to chat as I quite enjoy your posts, but if you have to stop, just drop me a line to let me know. Here's hoping you have a Happy Christmas and a most prosperous New Year.

I love talking to the few friends that I keep in contact with on LJ, including you :)

What I have a problem with is time wasting stuff like videos on youtube of completely unimportant things and "funny pics" that far too often aren't the slightest bit funny.

I hope you have a great Christmas and a happy New Year :)
