Can’t Get Enough

Have you ever been addicted to anything, or worried that you were? Have you ever spent too much time and effort on something that was a distraction from your real goals? Tell us about it.

The internet. Hands down I am addicted to it and so are you. Everyone I know spends a lot of time online but I spend more than most. I do not shut it down unless I am watching a movie or tv show and usually am downloading stuff even when I do watch something. Even when I sleep.

Especially Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. Less of Twitter than before but the other two – yes, all the time. I can’t enough. I love watching videos that I have seen over and over again. I watch vlogs, travel stuff, interviews, cooking shows, real estate, music, sports etc etc. Youtube is really my cable tv now.  Facebook is also a huge addiction – I am in so many groups I can’t keep track of them all. I also manage two pages and am admin in a couple of groups.

I have two Youtube channels and as much as I like making my own videos, very simple on my hand held camera which is my smartphone with no edits or compressing or anything, I love other people’s stuff. Professionally done ones and simple ones like mine. I just love the Youtube community man. I gotta go now cause there are videos to be watched.

Five Is Fine

I so enjoy long weekends. Next weekend is an awesome one. Monday is a holiday and so is Wednesday. If only I could manage to squeak in a leave or adjust an off on Tuesday then I would be able to get 5 days off from work and enjoy myself. I wonder what I would do if I go 5 days off.

I guess I would relax a couple of days but maybe go to Fort Kochi on one of those days. I’ve been meaning to go to Fort Cochin (at the end of the city/district and which is the original Cochin and oldest part of the city) for the longest time. My mom’s place is Mattancherry which is just next to Fort Cochin and I used to go there a lot but it’s been ages since I’ve been to the area. I would also go to Lulu Mall again in Edapally on one of the days.

Also since Madhu is in town, maybe Anil, him and me can catch up on one day and go for a long lunch and drink some beer in some place. It will nice to hang out again. I really am looking forward to that.
