    Escaping From Real Life

    From before I can remember until 1990 or so I spent all my time reading.  Books.  I bought them and gave them away by the thousands.  Literally.  I spent at least five thousand dollars a year on books, and read all that I bought.  It was pathological, but...

    I dread to think what would happen

    if the internet suddenly stopped working! >_< LOL. Its so shameful to say because i'm sure life did exist without it and I would be fascinated to know what it was like before the internet, but no facebook? no youtube? no EP? no ISOHUNT!!? X____x;;

    Addicted

    It's almost ridiculous, haha. I can't go a day without the internet. The first thing I do when I wake up is check my email and facebook. The last thing I do before I go to sleep...same thing. If I wake up in the middle of the night, I have to check them too. There are a lot of...

    I love shopping online

    for almost everything. I love using the “googles” and laughing at incorrect Wikipedia entries when I spot them. There are probably 10 million blogs about 10 million different subjects. It makes me smile that people like getting their thoughts and feelings out for the...

    From Anchor To Addiction.

    Back in 2009 when I left school, the Internet became my anchor. It was the only place I could be myself.At first it was just for fun, to surf the net for silly things like all teenagers did; I also experimented in Web Design and Graphic Design, which led me to Writing websites...

    I’m Married To The Internet

    This describes it to a "T" When I wake up, you’re the first person I think about. I always make sure to check up on you to see all the new things you have to offer, and I love the fact that you don’t care if I’m in pajamas, or that I haven’t brushed my teeth yet, or that...

    The internet has everything I need.

    I talk to my friends, I watch TV shows, I listen to music. All off of the internet. Not to mention the only way to talk to the person that means the most to me is by using the internet.

    I am addicted to the internet

    for sure. I set aside 2 or 3 hours weekdays and several hours on the weekends to have fun on my computer. I love learning and the internet gives me this opportunity. Besides, I have kids and I love helping them with their homework assignments with a computer.

    We are truly in an information age. I could very happily spend the rest of my days in front of a computer, surfing the web and finding out as much about everything that I can. Of course, that is the very problem. I really could do that if life didn't get in the way. i find myself...

    If the internet wasn't here I wouldn't be here.

    I've met people that helped me because of the internet and if there was no internet I would've never met them and I would have never talked about the things I have.

    As unfortunate/fortunate

    as it may be, I am indeed addicted to the internet. The reason why I'm addicted is probably because of how I stay up until late talking to my internet buddies & playing games!!

    I hate how much my weekends are consumed by it.

    I'll just browse and browse... Sometimes I have no idea what I'm looking for, anymore. I just need the "company". I have no friends in "real" life to hang with, so being online becomes my companion. It's sickening. I get so tired and disgusted with myself because there's other...
