Happy Thursday, everyone! After seeing Neely’s post Tuesday, I got inspired to talk about a few things I’m addicted to.
This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone who’s been here awhile. Obviously I’m addicted to the caffeine, but I hate coffee, and other sodas just don’t match up. Dr Pepper’s a part of me. If I don’t have it, I get withdrawal headaches, and those hurt more than regular headaches. But, because I’m trying to watch how I eat, I’ve been cutting back lately. It hurts.
Yes, I binge watch Netflix like any normal person should. But it’s not just that. I have a whole list of shows that I watch regularly, and shows you won’t find on Netflix. It’s so significant that Tim has asked me if I’ll cut back on TV watching after we have children. My response: “Isn’t that what nap time is for?” I know, I am totally not prepared to be a mom.
I don’t frequent a “Makeup Addiction” forum for no reason. I can’t walk through Target without peeking in the makeup aisle and buying some pretty new NYX product. I can’t pick up a prescription from CVS without crying on the inside when Tim won’t let me browse Revlon lip butters. <– This kind of thing is why online shopping exists. If you are also addicted to makeup, or just occasionally like pretty things, be sure to enter the giveaway this week.
Raise your hand if you can leave your house without your phone. …Anyone? OK, so maybe this isn’t too abnormal, but if I’m going on a road trip, I will be packing my phone, iPad, kindle, and laptop. And a ton of chargers.
Reading When I was a kid, I’d be toting a large book around with me everywhere I went. I’d power through novels in a day. I’d practically live in my books. I picked reading over playing outside with friends. Once I got to high school, reading wasn’t fun anymore, because I was forced to read boring novels, overanalyze them, and find metaphors that didn’t really exist. It wasn’t until a couple of years ago, when I stole Tim’s kindle, that I rediscovered my love for reading. I don’t read through books as fast as I used to, though. Adult responsibilities get in the way, I guess.
What are you addicted to?
