Because I’m insanely busy this week with very important things (end of semester grading, my MA Exam), my husband decided to block certain websites so that I don’t get distracted. Sites like MySpace, LiveJournal, Etsy, Ebay, various celebrity gossip sites, racing websites, and so on. They’re only unblocked from 9pm-midnight.
It’s driving me crazy. Most of my work (writing, prepping, etc) is done on the computer. When I need to relax for a few minutes, or whatever, I look at these sites. They help me (I think) de-stress a little. I like seeing what my friends have posted on their blogs or MySpace pages. I’ve only been on the computer for an hour this morning, and it’s already driving me insane that I have a message waiting for me on MySpace, and I can’t read it until 9pm tonight.
I’ve also been saying for over a year now that I want to simplify, move away from so much technology and time-sucking websites.
