I bought my students some chocolates since I'm asking them to do a load of surveys for the writing school here in the English dep., and I keep wanting to snag some for myself. It's Dove milk chocolate, for Pete's sake. What was I thinking? As this article clearly outlines, it *is* an addiction because the cocoa hits our brain in much the same way crack does.
But let's not talk about my addictions. Let's talk about yours. Or, you know, the possibility of others...? Like, say, the tendency to over-read? C'mon we've all been there, late at night, candle in trembling hand-- er, lamp still on -- reading the latest book we've just got to finish before we can allow ourselves to sleep. However, in searching for an answer, the one I found seems to encourage reading... huh.
For those of you who tried NaNo and failed, I hear you. I knew it was folly during the month of November, so many family things (even in the beginning of the month because of my birthday) and the one school I was teaching at is on quarters, so they finished up the last week of November, but I went for it anyway. There's little consolation, but Megan Rebekah has an entry dedicated to letting NaNo down easy.
And life goes on. Next week, I sleep, I bake, I clean, I write.
Do you consider your reading habit an addiction? If so, is it possible some addictions are "good" for you?
