Ok ok .. promise, last post of the night.
So i've come to the conclusion that extending use of internet/aim ...is not good for mental health. You know that satisfied, complete feeling you get from personal interaction with others? Yeah, you don't get that with AIM or internet ... you just get this shallow shell, this imitation intimacy and closeness. Not to say that my chats with friends weren't good ... because they definitely were. But I think there's definitely more to be desired in those contexts.
Anyway, random realization of the night. I hope you're all doing well. Peace.
