Hi, welcome. I like the slow velocity of comments and posts, it gives enough time to read and think.

It's growing on me the more time I spend here. I've blocked Reddit at work and replaced it with Hubski, to help me get work done.

I think that Reddit has re-wired my brain over the years to expect regular meaningless dopamine hits and instant entertainment/distraction, at the expense of substance and growth. So, sometimes I want my internet sugar rush, but the longer I stay away from that kind of content, the more space I have in my brain.

Are you me?

I think that I have grown to reliant on easy entertainment with near zero long-term fulfilment. It's been tough trying to cut it out of my life though, and it's even worse seeing how it's exam time right now.
