    So my class attended the internet addiction

    seminar conducted by our school's guidance office today. I've seen some symptoms applicable to me and I was like, wow, I'm addicted to the internet. I really wasted a lot of time. Lol

    Addiction

    I find the internet more addictive than nicotine or cocaine- literally speaking. I need to plan my day around not being near computers with internet access. It's almost funny.
