About Me

My photo
I’m married (for the 2nd time) just over a year now. I have 3 children ages 21, 17 & 16 as well as a daughter who is 21 years old from my husband’s previous marriage (not a typo) and recently married so I am now a mother-in-law as well. I think it’s great!! All my love to both of them!!! As long as they wait to have children until he is out of the Army! I’m also a Nursing student in my 2nd year of school. I’m seriously considering a change in my major to Nutrition. Much as I want to be a Nurse, I think becoming a Nutritionist may be the avenue I choose. I am fluent in American Sign Language and speak Italian as well. I also love the outdoors, camping, hiking, riding motorcycles with my husband, and the beach are among a few. I hate the cold but I love snowball fights with my family. I enjoy crochet of all kinds, but there’s something about the detail when it is done with crochet thread that I especially love. I try to spend as much time as I can enjoying life and what it has to offer.

It happens to the best of us no matter the intentions.

Here's the scenerio: You log on to the net/web/usenet/whatever, planning on just checking your email or some other small task. Maybe even looking up the defination of a word, or even googling a new product. And WHAM! Before you know it, you've just lost 4 or 5 hours of your day, or night, as the case may be.

Where does all this time go? How can it have passed without your knowledge? Did you fall asleep and weren't aware of it? We aren't mindless drones that are unaware of the passing of time. And yet somehow time passes and catches us unaware.

I call it "The Black Nowhere" since it's more than just a black hole of time. It has no space really because in reality, the web is an intricate linking of billions of computers in the netherworld of this "thing" we call cyberspace. It isn't one location.

How does it happen? Now there's a question I'd dearly love to be able to answer.

I've talked to my younger brother about it and he says it happens to him too. I've seen first hand how it happens to all three of my children. I have quite a few friends that seem to suffer from this same problem.

Unfortunately, there seems to be no cure for this extremely widespread phenomena.

What happens is that you time out from your negative consciousness (relieving yourself from the confines of your mental inhibitions) and allow the (non-constricting) postive ( and naturally inquisitive) side of your consciousness the freedom to operate. When you snap back into your negative consciousness - your restrictions return and you focus once again on time limits
