The First Post

I can't believe I am actually writing my first post. Aren't you all proud? Astounded? Awestruck? Personally I am shocked. I'll turn 18 tomorrow and I do not know anyone my age who has a blog. Everyone uses Facebook or Tweets. Some people post things all day...

"Just woke up...taking a shower"
"Eating breakfast"
"Time for class"
"Trying not to fall asleep in class"
"Eating lunch with my girls"
"Texting him omg LOVE him so much!"
ect. ect. ect.

Some people are seriously addicted to internet social networking sites like Facebook while others are addicted to online gaming or texting. I find it very interesting that as our society becomes more advanced we develop so many more problems to solve. Did you know detox programs for those addicted to the internet are now popping up all over the country? But hey, at least the money spent on such detox programs are stimulating our economy...

But in all seriousness, you never know when your addiction to the internet is going to start controlling your life or the life of someone you love. If you're worried you might possibly be addicted to blogging, playing Mario Kart online, or texting, take a free survey from the reSTART Internet Addiction Recovery Program

MMORPG is the abbreviation for massively multiplayer online role-playing games
