The Guilt Is Eating You Alive

   If you decided to, you would be crying, too. Nara couldn't believe she had just done it. It was the boldest thing she had ever done in her life. She had chosen to turn in her enemy for the crime that she had committed. Nara had stolen seventeen watches from the shop, and blamed it on her worst enemy. Even though it was her nemesis, the guilt was eating her alive.
   Quite literally.
   The symptoms began early one morning. The sun was shining down, the heat was warming Nara's face, and the bacteria were eating on her stomach.
   The itchiness was unbearable. Nara couldn't resist going to the doctor. Nara couldn't resist anything since that morning. She had never liked green peppers, but now she was craving them all the time.
   The doctor ordered x-rays. The doctor ordered biopsies on samples they had taken. The doctor ordered a nephrectomy, or a kidney removal. The doctor couldn't figure out what was wrong with Nara, but something was strangely, undeniably wrong.
   The doctor couldn't find them because the bacteria didn't exist. The bacteria were figments of Nara's imagination, but they were unmistakably there, nevertheless. These bacteria were guilt. Guilt is both a feeling and a medical condition. Guilt is a sickness brought about by your mind, by your choices, but the sickness is truly real. And incurable by anyone else. The only thing that will stop the bacteria from eating Nara alive was herself. She had to right her wrongs, and then, only then, would the bacteria mysteriously vanish.
   And Nara knew all of this. She knew she was the only one to make it better. She knew what the bacteria was. But she didn't want to right her wrongs, for it meant putting herself in a bad situation. Of course, it is just that that she had done already.
   But Nara decided not to. She decided to soldier through her guilt.
   But it only got worse.
   She itched all over, she was always so tired, she was always confused and forgetting things she had obviously known before she lied about her crime. The bacteria must have gotten into her mind. They were driving her mad. She was mentally aging ten years every day.
   But on she went.
   And on.
   And on.
   And the bacteria went on and on.
   Until one day. Nara was 37 years old that day. She got the mail. Inside the stack of junk mail was a letter from her nemesis. She had finally gotten out of jail.
   Nara thought the itchiness would stop.
   But it didn't.
   It went on and on and on.
   Finally, when Nara was 98 years old, the guilt finally got to her and she turned herself in. Finally, the itchiness stopped. The bacteria mysteriously vanished and everything was okay. Nara laid down on the ground and smiled. She was free.
   After all of the suffering, Nara was free.
   She was free to go.
   Nara died with a pure heart.
   Nara died guilt-free.

New challange for RK

This one won't be the hardest challenge I have forced myself to do but it won't be the easiest. I spend a lot of time on the computer, Talking to my friends, posting on this blog, and it's really not a healthy habit, especially for someone my age. I hate to admit it but I can spend hours-on-end without getting bored of the internet. I am going to get off the computer a lot of the time. I have limited my daily use on the computer to one hour a day. No matter what. It doesn't matter if I am bored, one hour is the limit. 15 minute segments seems good. I would also like to suggest this challenge to a few of you. If you think you are on the web too much, try this challenge with me! It will help to lead a healthy life and provide a better future. They're are a lot of things you can do on the internet but there's also a lot of things you can do with out it. We can survive. It's not like the whole world is gonna fall apart because we aren't on a computer in fact it would probably do the opposite.

Fact of The day # 28: Tera-Brayns

The estimated human brain can hold up to an estimated 1-10 terabytes of information. Using and estimated 5 terabytes per brain it would take 1,000,000 brains to store the internet.

And just to give your brain an idea of how much we use the internet daily here's one more.
In 2007: 5,000 Tweets PER day
In 2008: 300,000 Tweets PER day
In 2009: 2.5 Million Tweets per day (35 Million per day by the end of the year)

Man we need to get off the internet...
