Announcing my retirement

I am taking leave from the computer until further notice. The reason for this is that I am trying to follow through on eliminating hypocrisy from my life, and in doing so I must acknowledge my addiction. I am addicted to the internet.
With the exception of being able to get to know my family and friends better by reading their blogs, there really is nothing of value for me on the internet. I have thrown away too many valuable minutes of my life watching the latest stupid video on youtube, playing mindless games, clicking the refresh button on facebook, etc, ad nauseam. These things may or may not be bad per se, they are just taking over my life and it must stop now. I see that if I am ever to "become a man" that I really need to "put away childish things."
And so, email and social sites will not be the best way to get a hold of me anymore. I believe Tres sent out an email with our new phone number (just changed to the Magic Jack), so if you don't know it or my cell, you can still send me an email but it may be a while before I get back to you.

You know, when I saw your facebook with all those things on there, I wondered how you had time for all that stuff. It happens. There is just too many interesting things on the internet. Carson doesn't let me stay on too long before he gets in the way.
