Did I mention I'm addicted to the internet?
Well, I am.
I have a Facebook profile, 3 tumblr accounts, a Twitter (To be found here), an instagram account (the_countess_of_fairytales), a YouTube profile and this blog of course. I mostly use Facebook because I have a group of friends with whom I am in PM contact whenever we are awake. Actually, this goes for me and the internet in general:
If I'm not online, I sleep or have uni in one of those rooms that have neither windows (yup, seriously...) or an internet connection. Other than that I'm pretty much online all the time. I don't actively browse the whole time but even when I'm with friends I tend to check my emails (of which I get about 91827634567831920 a day since I became an active member in the Green Youth) or post a quick tweet or instragram picture. For some it's annoying but most of my friends are the same and I honestly enjoy it.
The Count and I don't have much time together, we only see each other about once or twice a week so it's nice to stay in contact via Whatsapp or Facebook over the day to feel a little more connected. We just tell each other random little things that are happening or plans we have, what annoys us, what makes us laugh...
Of course, I also read all news on the internet, mostly The Independent, The Guardian, the TAZ (German) and the Kölner Stadt Anzeiger (KSTA, a Cologne based local paper) but also random articles of other papers when they appear on my Facebook feed for example. I try to stay updated but sometimes I tend to forget it because I get lost in the wonders of the mighty internet. I tought myself how to stitch via YouTube, I get my ukulele tabs from various websites, I send a gazillion mails a day, I read other peoples' blogs and watch their YouTube videos about art, make-up, veganism, politics, everyday life and I don't even know what. At the moment I try to get better in calligraphy and I googled some pictures as inspirations.
What about you? What's your opinion on using the internet a lot? What do you do most when you're online (I know, the internet is for porn but I don't want to hear about that, thanks ;) )? Would you sometimes like to change the amount of time you spend online? I certainly do but look what I'm doing at the moment^^
Have a great day,
