My internet-probation officially ended yesterday. After helping clean up the house for a couple hours and cooking lunch and dinner for another couple hours, I’ve been sitting in front of the computer for nearly four hours, catching up with the things I missed and even writing and posting a long chapter of my fan fiction story.
And I’m happy to say that the past two days wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I spent my time sitting on a corner reflecting about different things about life (deep, isn’t it? hehe), and reading Judith McNaught’s “Something Wonderful” which really proved to be effective at diverting my mind from thinking about giving up to temptation (especially when there are two computers at your house, just staring at you wide-eyed and luring you like a siren to switch them on and sit in front of them…xP).
AND I learned some really important things.
Number one: You learn something new everyday. For example, yesterday I learned that I could last for more than 48 hours away from “Information Highway” without losing my sanity (if I have any) and tearing my hair out. And the other day, I learned that I definitely should refrain from reading NC 17 fan fictions (even though I’m already 17) because it’s difficult to get them off my mind, especially if it’s gross and disturbing. Get it? It doesn’t matter how small or how big it is, as long as there is something you learned.
Number two: Curing an addiction takes an incredible amount of will power. And I’m not just talking about the internet. I’m also talking about smoking, drinking, and of course, drugs. I used to get frustrated and annoyed whenever I see people having difficulty quitting these vices. I always say “Just quit already! Dang it!” But now, I think I understand how hard it is, a little.
I also watched the TV premier of Camp Rock. Not bad. The songs are really good. But some parts made me feel different levels of frustration. First is when Mitchie, the female main character, lied about her mom’s occupation. Dang, girl, don’t you watch TV? Lying only works if your mom IS NOT in the same camp cooking in the kitchen!
Just kidding. Lying is bad, people. BAD.
Second is the antagonist, Tess. Her character made me scream at the screen “EVIL! PURE EVIIIIL” Seriously, Sharpay from High School Musical maybe annoying, but she’s funny. Annoying but funny. And I like annoying-but-funny! Tess’ character is pure annoying.
Third is that Kevin and Nick did not get enough screen time… Or maybe it’s just me?
Oh, well. I guess that’s that. I wasn’t bashing the actresses, in fact, they did a great job. The movie wasn’t bad and the songs are stuck on my head. Kind of makes me wonder how great it’d be to have that kind of Camp in real life.
… *long silence*
Erm… I suddenly ran out of things to say.
Ciao for now!
