So, anyway, I never did drugs, I never had the urge to eat an entire sheet cake, I never found myself on "questionable" websites, and I never ran 30 miles in a day because of the endorphins that were so overwhelming. Truly on the outside I appear to be a very non-addictive person.
However, for the past few weeks I've realized I do indeed have some severe addictions. I think the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem. So, if you will indulge me, here are some of the things I'm fighting, but losing the battle to:
1. Cereal. Could there be anything more wonderful than cereal? Honestly, I'm completely obsessed with it. Typically, in one morning I eat two huge bowls and then have to actually say out loud, "Kate, you have had enough" while I (with a shaky hand) wash out my bowl.
2. Reality TV. I'll watch anything. If you put a super nanny, a gay clown, an inspiring chef, a blind piano player and a talking dog together, and told them to build a tree fort in 20 minutes for a family, who lost their home in Katrina, I would not only watch it, but blog about it.
3. Gossip Websites. Every morning I try to tell myself to read the news, learn something new and be an adult. Unfortunately, after five minutes of reading about the stimulus plan battle, I can't fight the urge any longer to find out if, indeed, Chris Brown really hit Rihanna. I swear I wouldn't know if Russia was blown up unless Brad Pitt was shooting a movie there during the time of the blast.
So, I know in the grand scheme of things these addictions don't seem that bad. I mean, I know I didn't write things like, Twilight, cocaine or Miley Cyrus, but these are real struggles people.
