Distraction Enabling Devices: The Internet

Internet addiction sounds funny, but I feel I'm suffering a slight case of it.  Compulsive surfing at the expense of other activities like reading and writing.  An inability to stay focused on any sort of non-computer reading.  A strange avoidance of typing away at the fictional ideas that are always close at mind, instead returning to the ease of continual google searches about nothing of importance. Anxiousness at even writing about these feelings at all.

When I exert a little self-control, I fire up Freedom and give myself some net-free time.  Maybe a little TV watching will distract me from this uneasyness.  Oh, yes, that's the stuff.
