Sometimes,

By Aneesah, 12 Nov 10

1. I have this craving for human interaction and attention. How normal is this inexplainable loneliness?

2. I wonder why I have been so into the online world. deviantART, Flickr, this blog, Facebook, Formspring — mediums for sharing, portals for communication, or alternate ways of reaching out? (Alternate, as in other than Real Life.) They can become unhealthy.


3. I wish I knew what people think of me.

4. I want to walk in other people’s shoes.

5. I wish I could do more.

  1. I agree with most of those except for #2. Well, for #2, the only thing I love about all of that is because it keeps everyone in touch with each other. I can understand what you mean about craving human interaction, I feel that way sometimes too.

    Btw, I was looking at the pictures you posted… I wouldn’t be surprised if you took all of those pictures. =)

      True, but also I came across an article once, that debated the need to always be in touch with the majority of your friends. It somehow loses the magical quality of seeing a person again after a long time, or sharing stories of what has been going on — because you’ve already known what went on and seen pictures and read about it. :nod: Admittedly, I can’t imagine how it would be if my friends and I weren’t on Facebook, but it’s a valid point anyway.

      And yes, I did take the photos. ;)

      • I definitely agree with you about the article. I guess for me, keeping in touch means talking to the person, and not just seeing their status updates/pictures. It’s just a good way of having everyone you want to keep in touch with at the same place. Yes there is calling/texting, but not many people are phone-people, and for me, I can only text a certain amount of texts a month, so it’s not very useful. So e-mail/Facebook is the best way to stay in touch with people. It’s true that there’s nothing to tell people when you actually see them, I agree on that, and I know what it means, but there’s really nothing you can do about it. =/

        My sister doesn’t like Facebook either but it’s the only way her friends can get in touch with her about school/etc.

  2. i do agree for all five up there. I am into it, sometimes. Alone, want a little attention, too much spending time on virtual world.hmm..

      Betul, I think what we cannot gain in offline life, we try to find in our virtual lives…

      Thanks Azah! :heart: Photography’s just a little hobby, suka2 je, I’m not really good at taking photos of people.

    hm.. true, true, true, true, true. there u go.

    Well, then again, I’ve always been the kind who craves for other ppl’s attention. Whether its my parents, teachers, classmates, friends and not to mention, boyfriend. Sometimes I think people would get bored of me after awhile but Idk, i keep doing things. bad things. ok, this is sooo out of topics haha. anyways, irrelevance aside, sometimes it’s really healthy to just get your ass up, dress up (always the motivation) and go out with your friends, or alone. I find walking in the mall alone is quite a therapy. but it’s bad when I bring money along. once I spent all of my money, RM1k to be exact, out of boredom. considering I’m not rich at all, 1k is a lot for me and I had to bear the chains of consequences. BAD.

    I started craving for more shopping a week later. gosh. whats wrong with me.

    • Aisyah Rozi says:

      oh yeah, those are really great pictures. *thumbs up*

    • Aneesah says:

      Hahaha, can’t believe you spent that much! :lol: Hebat ah. I remember someone on MTV (really) once said, the one thing that all women really want is attention.

      I like walking in town alone too, the freedom is pleasant. But I think studying overseas, there’s a particular loneliness of being away from your home and family and everything you knew; that everyone here senses. It comes and goes, so it’s always best to remember the positives and be thankful. ^_^

      Also, the thing about cravings / addictions etc. probably relate back to that void in everybody’s soul that we’re trying to fill…
