Addiction confession   Leave a comment


Have to confess this somewhere. I am addicted to twitter. My phone is permanently attached to my left hand and my right one constantly taps the screen. This, from a woman, who, until last year, did not ever own an android phone.

I have tried filters, allowing myself 30 minutes a day and even cold turkey, but like a true addict, pretend to myself and cheat.

I am in a daze. I can easily lose two hours on twitter and not realise it.  I lose focus. Last week I was queuing at a store to try on a dress and the assistant had to wave her hand in front of my face to bring me back to earth.

I have analyzed myself. I realise what I am doing. But the news is so immediate! And I know what is happening before everyone else! And I and my fellow addicts communicate with each other in 140 characters, and we bond and follow each other and develop ‘in’ jokes. What to do?

reverse culture shock






Reverse culture shock and adjustment.

Had a great experience but feel a bit dazed and confused about what I want to do now.

And the WordPress dashboard has completely changed – more confusion!

Poor me. Need to give myself a kick in the ass and stop navel gazing I guess….
