Day 7. What are you addicted to?
Everyone has strange things they’re addicted to and don’t like to admit to.
I myself have two things I’m insanely addicted to.
The first thing I’m addicted to is something really sad but I know I’m not the only one out there addicted to it- Social Networking.
Facebook and Twitter are taking over my life. Every morning when I wake up, I grab my phone, check my messages then go straight onto Facebook or Twitter to check for notifications and interactions. If I have nothing interesting on there I’ll move onto my emails, and if that fails to interest me I’ll go back onto Facebook and Twitter to scroll down the news feeds as far as I saw before I went to bed.
I don’t thing a day passes that I don’t go on Facebook whether it’s on my phone or on my laptop. The only time I don’t go on Facebook is if I’m on holiday or I’m on a plane! In a way, it just shows how boring my life is to be honest however it does have it’s positives- Facebook and Twitter and great places to find out if a celebrity has died or what has happened on X Factor. I found out Osama Bin Laden was dead from Facebook, along with Whitney Houston and Robin Gibb. Every Sunday night whilst I was driving backwards and forwards from Brighton last year I used to miss the X Factor Results show I didn’t know who had gone home- thanks to the constant feed on Facebook or Twitter I used to be able to find out who went home as soon as I walked through the door. See, be addicted can be good, sometimes.
The second thing I’m addicted to is really random.
Anyone who spends hours on YouTube watching random videos will know who this woman is.
Jenna Marbles is an internet sensation. She’s a weekly vlogger (video blogger) originally from New York and a bit like me she waffles on every week about her daily life and thoughts. Her crazy rants, silly voices, hilarious weekly updates and inanely cute dogs just get you hooked and before you know it you’ve spent over an hour watching her videos. For a blogger like me, she’s such an inspiration to get over a million views on everything I post would be a dream come true. It probably helps she’s rather hot so maybe she has that advantage over me…
But there you go.
Those are the addictions of a 21st century 18 year old girl.
Pretty sad but at the end of the day anything is better than being addicted to all the wrong things like drugs, smoking and drinking.
Happy New Year everyone, welcome to 2013.
I’ll leave you with some of my favourite Jenna Marbles videos, Enjoy!
