- Wedding: August 2010
I started posting threads & posts here just yesterday and I’m totally addicted now. I need help! I have read some blog entries on Weddingbee once in a while in the past few months, not knowing/paying attention to how it actually works (i.e. who writes the blogs, all the different categories, etc). I’m not a blogger, never was one nor intended to become one. I don’t even read blogs. So I guess Weddingbee is what got me into this whole new world called, “Blogging.” (well, I know it existed for a long time now, but I’m new to this) And think I became an addict. SIGH.
I already had a mild A.D.D that only kicks in during my work hours. It got worse, correction, out of control after I got engaged and started planning for my wedding. I now find myself even more useless at work (I mean, look at me!) and…well, other things going on in my life. I’m so infatuated with wedding planning after reading so many entries with all the creative ideas (and it gets updated so fast, I can’t keep up!!).
Last night I read one of the recent entries by Miss Oyster and the video clip in the post basically made me pull an all nighter. I’m 28. I can’t do all nighters anymore. I feel delirious and drunk, and just I can’t function. But I couldn’t help clicking on one video after another on StillMotion Blog until my peripheral vision started poking the corner of my brain and screaming, “Woah, why is it so bright out?! ..and why do I hear birds chirping…and cars honking from a distant…?” Whaaatttt it’s 7:00AM?!?!?!
I slept for 2 hours and came in to my office. I was a driving zombie behind the wheel (I live 8 blocks from my office and decided I couldn’t walk the 8 blocks). And what do I do as soon as I turn my laptop on? Start typing “www.weddingbee….” in the address bar on my Firefox. You know that fly in “Bug’s Life” who were helplessly drawn to a lightbulb despite his friend’s frantic call not to look at it, and got zapped? Yeah, I feel like I’m that fly. “I can’t help itttttt….” Ah, the sad last words…
What do I do? I really need to stop this. Thank God that I don’t have a project going on at work, but I have to focus on other things like my classes (I’m currently in grad school) and the papers I have to write..the finals coming up. UGH. HEEEELP! How do you guys manage to focus on things other than the wedding?
