    Everyday

    Everyday I look at the internet when I should be working. I’ve only one person to blame if I’m ever caught. I’m not that silly as I am the boss, and I work for myself, so keep your sticky beck out of it – I’ll do what I like and work when I like!!!

    Not As Often As Before

    I used to be on here daily but it also depends on how busy we are. When we are slow no one cares as we are all doing it. As long as busy times are kept productive it's all good. Just in between today so a little bit of both.

    I don't know if this applies to me or not because I don't have a job, but, when I SHOULD be doing housework or bills or making phone calls, the Internet calls to me...I can't really stay away for too long...

    Like right now. Each night

    before I go to bed, I tell myself that tomorrow will be the day when I focus on work without procrastinating... but somehow I never succeed. It's difficult for me because I need my laptop for my work/studies so it's even more tempting for me to click away and find something more...

    And I'm not upset about that. Because why? Because I know I'm better than the last girl who worked here and they just can't fire me. I love you, internet. You keep me entertained durring my 6 hour shift.
