    It's gotten to the point

    I don't know what to do about it.

    Things I used to enjoy now seem like a drag. I've gotten REALLY lazy. I can't sleep at night because my smart phone is a distraction. Several times I have cancelled plans so I can stay online and play games, watch videos/shows, write fanfictions (guilty pleasure!), etc. I don...
