High-tech addicts

Happy new month and new week people.

Me myself and I am very exhausted these days, I feel somewhat brought down today. I hate that because I firmly believe in being positive and thankful. Nothing else is healthy for the spirit. So I need to snap out of this ASAP.
I am just so tired of my back problems. Since I started going to physical therapy there's been no change at all, infact I've gotten worse. I start this hopeless thinking "is this going to last the rest of my life?" - I've had it for over 1 1/2 year now. It's really, really bugging me almost every moment of every day. On top of that, the therapist forbid me from any physical activity and that SUCKS. I am yearning to get back to my fitness. I have no problems with my body but I feel like crap. My body isn't supposed to be cracking and giving me problems at this age. I have also discovered that the more my operated finger heals, the worse it looks (i.e it's giving me more and more trouble) so it looks I have to operate AGAIN. My massacred finger. My corned beef finger. Lol. Oh, and yesterday I tore out the piercing in my nose by accident. Talk about PAIN. It was halfway out, halfway in, bleeding. I needed help to push it back in. Now my nose is all runny, tickly and sore.
What else? I think I am starting to panic about quitting my job and starting school again. I'm not sure how I am going to deal with that serious lack of money. I was just on facebook and saw a correspondance between two of my friends:

A's status update: Can someone please invite me out for dinner?
B's comment: Oh, I would love to, but I have nothing except chinese noodles to offer. Correction; Can someone please invite US out for dinner?
A: Shall we start dancing for money?
C's comment: I'll pay you 5 kr (like 5 cents) to watch!
B's comment: Cool, then I can buy another packet of noodles!

Need I say more?

But hey, I am ultra-responsible, I am sure I will make the most out of my money cuz I'm like the best money-saver ever *trying to convince myself there'll be no problem*
Yup. Now I feel concerned fine!
On a more serious note, I realise I really shouldn't complain at all. *Slap on the hand*
I am BLESSED for this opportunity. Period. Snap out it already. Does anyone else experience that? Having this sudden panic-like pattern where you just start worrying about everything?

Changing subject, isn't that plane crash in the Atlantic just awful? Every plane crash further strengthens my fear of flying. It's so absurd, I used to love flying. Actually my dad is a pilot. He never worked as a pilot, but he has the certificate and all. So does my brother who for some reason just did it for fun (?). Whenever I travelled as a little girl, I didn't care for the travelling, only the flying. Especially take-off. I wanted to fly to space, even. Now, what has happened to me? I am scared as a rat. Growing up is no good o. (Does rats ever get scared anyway?)

Changing subject again (after all this is a random post) I'm proud to say I am not addicted to any of the recent hypes of the internet. I am not on Twitter, only on Face, but not really that active there. I was a bit tempted to get on twitter, but I don't know who I would TWIT with. The only thing I might be addicted to is blogging. But I don't have any problems getting off for days at a time. So does that really make me addicted?

Here's a cartoon for you. Can you relate?

Click to enlarge.

Right. I am off to truly enjoy my noodles.

this is really random, thought the same way about twitter, who will i twit.

posekyere June 2, 2009 at 1:49 PM  

Hmmm.Lots of fun today,Adaeze.
@I agree with you that your body is too young to show signs of " fatigue". Sometimes stress can lead to back pains. So make sure stress is not your neighbour.
@ Addiction to technology. Hmmm.I
don't want to be a slave to anything/anybody. The only place I spend some time is on blogger. The others don't do it for me.
Bless you!!!

I do hope ur back gets better soon, i can almost imagine how you feel right now, but u keep hanging in there, and ur nose ring getting torn out OMG, how did u survive the pain, i have an extremely low threshold for pain, i would have passed out if it were me...

As for quitting and schooling, isnt there an option for a part time job? that might make u feel braver about taking that step

Funny strip there, are pple that addicted?

O'Dee June 2, 2009 at 3:04 PM  

We all have those moments when we start worrying about everything.
Just hang in there and stay positive.

chayoma June 2, 2009 at 3:30 PM  

in this era, keeping in the loop is difficult.

nose ring pulled out...sounds like a bloody mess to me..NDO!
and the back pain, u don try Dr. Scholls?
Hopefully massage works if not, try acupuncture.

justdoyin June 2, 2009 at 3:31 PM  

sorry abt the back pain...'twill surely pass, just trust God and keep reading Bible verses on healing...

As O'dee mentioned, we all have periods when we worry, worry, worry...just don't let worrying sink u...maintain that positive outlook...it is well...

The Bookaholic June 2, 2009 at 4:16 PM  

Your blog is really beautiful...and to think that it's ob Blogger (don't mind that I am revealing my IT ignorance).

And the cartoon makes me wonder: what next after Twitter since our world has been reduced to Technology and all. It defines everything including relationships with people...

Nice blog, have I said that b4?

BSNC June 2, 2009 at 4:38 PM

StandTall-The Activist June 2, 2009 at 4:44 PM

ENjoy ur noodles dear, remember its only temporarily

Tigeress June 2, 2009 at 10:31 PM  

As for the plane crash- we just have to thank God for each time we fly. If u drive in a car- thats also susceptible to crashing- hope u know that. It doesnt scare me to fly. I actually prefer that to driving- with all those crazy druken drivers out there.

as for the back ache- lie on ur back and elevate your legs. it works. a physical therapy once told me to do that. There's even a new thing out that allows u to elevate ur legs.

SOLOMONSYDELLE June 3, 2009 at 4:59 AM  

Come tweet with me, Adaeze!!!


Come to the Twitter side...you know you wanna...

And the AF story is tres scary. Those poor souls.

Rose June 3, 2009 at 3:42 PM  

Hope your back gets better...Happy new month.

novisi June 3, 2009 at 9:21 PM  

my prayer is for your good hearlth. hope that pain gives way to a lovelier experience of this life.

plane crashes are always awful. but i prefer to fly too than running the road on a 4 wheeler and not knowing who might crash into you. loads of insane drivers out there.

as for addictions, i have my own! i love nuts and too much of it at a sitting knocked me down. but i'm back on my feet and i'm looking forward to eating nuts again.

internet twiters and faces and all just don't do for me! yeah i love blogging too! but i prefer life off the virtual.

hey, wish you well.

Adaeze June 4, 2009 at 1:59 PM  

@ Downtheaisle - I know..who will I twit. Lol

@ Posekyere - Fun? Im glad you think so, lol. Please elaborate on how to make sure stress is not my neighbour, because it is a very good neigbour of mine!

@ Jhazmyn - thank you hun. I think some people are that addicted, but that one is on the edge, lol. I will get a part time job yes. Tearing out my nose ring wasnt THAT bad but it was bad, lol. I've been through a lot worse (ie my finger)

@ O'dee - thank you dearie

@ Chayoma - I thnk I will try acupuncture soon if it doesnt work out. Thanks for ur sweet wishes.

@ Justdoyin - Thank you I appreciate that!

@ Bookaholic - Awwww thank you that is so nice to hear! I really put some effort into it and you are the first one that noticed. I so agree with you, what is next after twitter, It's a little sick..

@ BSNC - haha I go try take things easy.. its the towel! Not me! lol

@ Standtall - Same thing with me, it was the towel that did it! You can't put it back in? I am so die hard with my piercings. This time it would have been easier to pull it out than put it back in but that pain I have gone through was not going to be for nothing! Lol. As you know I have already replied your email dearie.

@ Simeone - I will stay positive. Thank you so much

@ Funms - haha. you are a twitterholic? take it easy!

@ Tigeress- I know about the car crashing..its much more dangerous. but nevertheless I dont like being up in the air! Its so far down..lol. I will elevate my legs, thanks.

@ Solomonsydelle - Lol! Then who else am I going to twitter with! U only? Na wa o! Lol

@ Rose - thank you darling

@ Novisi - Thank you so much. I know, lots of insane drivers. Still though, I feel more safe in a car! lol

StandTall-The Activist June 4, 2009 at 9:48 PM  

I cldnt get the stud back in cuz the nose is blocked. I will reopen it with a new stringe {my method}

Good Naija Girl June 5, 2009 at 4:23 PM  

Great cartoon!

I have never been comfortable flying, and even though disasters like the latest one happen far less often than car accidents, the fact that there is the potential for so many to lose their lives at once makes me so fearful. But at the same time I have to learn that once I'm in the plane anyway, being scared and worrying will not benefit me at all. If anything I should just spend my time praying for protection rather than worrying about what could happen. Anyway, nothing will happen during your own flight.

I wanted my nose piered a couple of years back but my nose is so prone to oiliness and I wear glasses so I thought it would be too much going on on my face. You're brave...I'm a wimp to the point that your description of your piercing coming out makes me feel a bit queasy :)

Your poor finger! What happened to it that you had to get it operated on?

Sir Scribbles II June 11, 2009 at 5:39 PM
