addicted to internet

Thursday, February 12, 2009

What would you do if you have an unlimited access to internet all the time?

Having blackberry or other PDA in your hands that lets you stay in touch with all your online buddies through an always connected service. Or working in an IT related company with broadband internet access in both office and apartment.

I've found myself trapped in a situation full of addiction, isolation, a waste of time in such life. Facebooking, browsing and googling for nothing, jumping from one website/blog to another till drop, and finally realized it is not the life I want to live.

I desperately need a change of my life and therefore I start building blogs.
