    Most people are joking when they say they're addicted to the internet. But I think I'm legitimately addicted to the internet. I spend many hours a day on it. I prefer it over interacting with humans in meatspace.

    I've come to fall in love with google docs.

    It's a beautiful place to store all the things that I need to keep someplace. It's a great place to write poems. Even ones that make no sense. And the best part is, they don't even know it's there. And I get get to it anywhere I'm at. It's just amazing. I love it.
