I think I have compulsion issues.
I realized it might be a problem when I haven't written a word in a week, yet I've managed to stay up late every night playing the Sims 2. It's like once I get hooked into something, I cannot seem to make myself do anything else.
When I watch TV, it's on DVD and I tend to watch the episodes back to back to back. I discovered House earlier this year and my husband and I watched all available seasons in about two months. And do not get me started on Buffy the Vampire Slayer again. I completely disappear from civilization.
I got on an 80's movie kick not too long ago. And when I feel like knitting, I knit non-stop for a week or two and then want nothing to do with it for a year or so.
It's like I don't understand moderation.
So as I sign off to go play with my pixelated people (I'm breeding dogs to see if the puppy will look like Wiley), I'll leave you with this question: Do you get obsessed with your hobbies and get sucked in until you burn out? Or are you able to set aside a certain amount of time for your distractions so that you can still function in the workplace, school, or in your family?
P.S. I did manage to get my act together enough to be a proper guest blogger at Killer Fiction Blog on Saturday the 24th. Please come say hi.
