In case you didn't already know, I am a bit of a nerd. I am also an incredibly lazy person who in spite of living in one of the busiest and most crowded cities in the world, doesn't have any friends that live anywhere near a place that would be easy to get to. There are a grand total of 2 people my age in my neighborhood, one of which is me and the other one is my best friend who lives a mile and a half away from me up a hill when she's not away at school.There are no buses that go within half a mile of their house. Also, a lot of my friends are from right here on the internet, and are thus scattered across the world.
As a result, most of my interactions with people have been, as of late, electronic. It's as if my entire social life has been reduced to texting and the internet, which is especially bad because almost all of the other parts of my life involve sitting in front of my computer. At first I was pretty ok with my cyber life. I was keeping in touch with people, and there would be plenty of time to actually see them later on. Unfortunately, later on never seemed to come, and I have become incredibly lonely.
I actually feel a little bad about complaining about this. I feel like it should be enough for someone who really has no other way of getting in touch with people, and yet it's not enough for me. I need actual human contact and physical closeness. I need to see and hear the people I'm talking to. I keep deciding that I'm going to take an internet hiatus until I feel better, but then I get lonely again and I come back. I'm guessing I'm just going to have to live with it for now. After all, the internet is wayyy better than nothing.
