After having a conversation on twitter (which I'm partly addicted to. Click here to follow me), I decided that my next post was going to be about Addictions (No Ryan Leslie).
Addiction is being abnormally tolerant and dependent on something that is physically or physiologically habit forming or an abnormally strong craving. With that said based on the second definition I believe that I am pseudo-addicted to a couple of things (some old and some new).
Lets start with the old:
I love working out and hooping. Anyone close to me knows that I have major hoop dreams. I don't plan on trying to make it to the NBA but basketball is like therapy for me. I get to exercise and forget about all my problems while hooping. I hoop every Monday, Wednesday and Friday (at the very least) at 5:30am (no matter what time I go to bed) before I head to school and I run at least 4 miles.
With all that working out, I need something that is bad for me. I hate jacks so that's not an option so alcohol it is. I am a vodka connoisseur. I've stated in my previous posts that my favorite vodka is Stolichnaya. I'm also partial to Kettle One, Ciroc, Absolut and I guess if that's all that's left Grey Goose.
Now on to the new:
Last week I was drafted
and signed a two-year contract extension by team Blackberry (no signing bonus). I never really understood why people called their phone a crackberry. I mean I thought it was just a phone. I used to be on my Instinct a lot but I didn't think I was addicted to it. Since I've had it I've fallen in love with it barely put it down. It's my new best friend.
I got my 2nd tattoo this past weekend and I never really thought that tats would be something I would be into like that. I already have 4 brands but I never really felt to need to want to get one (seriously, they just kind of happened). I've had this new tat for 3 days now and I already want another one. I'm not going to go crazy or anything with the tats (read: Lil Wayne) but I think I do want 1 or 2 more.
So readers/followers, what are some things that you are addicted to. Remember the first step is admitting that you have a problem (otherwise known as the Step of Freedom).
