    My Computer Is Like My Second Mind.

    And I don't like people being in my head - it's a private space - that's all.

    I Am Very Stingy..

    when it comes to certain things. My computer is one of them. Want to borrow my clothes? Fine. Eat my food? Whatever.  Touch my computer without me there? Sure, unless you want all your fingers cut off and fed to you. If you need to do something on it, you damn well better make...

    Agitating Tick

    It is 2010 and with this year comes technology. Many people don't own diaries/journals any more- no their personal belongings of hidden secrets are their computers. Like many others, I use my laptop for everything. It is used for work, writing, research and watching movies...

    Uh...yea.

    I don't know why it makes me uncomfortable. I don't want my setting changed, I guess, and I don't want people snooping through my stuff. I don't have anything to hide, but just the same. I think part of it is that I bought my computer with my money...

    Ep Embarrassment!

    I have personal things on here!! EP is really the biggest thing I don't want people to find. EP is supposed to be my private place where no one I know in real life can come and bug me or judge me. So whenever I let someone use my computer and they go on the Internet and type...

    Hate It

    I hate when anyone touches my computer.  I have very private files on my computer that I am in-trusted with by my company.  I get very nervous if someone else touches my computer, much less boots it up and starts using it.

    Diaries

    It's not that I have anything to hide, its just that my laptop is where I keep all of my venting diaries. And I do not want anyone using my laptop long enough to go snooping through my things, reading my stuff and then questioning me about the things I have written. There are...

    I Guess I'm a Little Paranoid.

    I just think everyone is going to look at my website history and try to find out stuff about me there or they are going to mess with my private files or something.

    I wish that that title was actually true for my computer so that people don't have the nerve to use it. I feel like they're violating my privacy. It's got too much of my personal stuff in it, so when anyone uses it, I watch them like a hawk so that they don't come across anything...

    My brother was over and he wanted to find a hardware store nearby. He asked if he could use my laptop; well, "asked" is being nice, he basically said "Let me use your computer" and I felt compelled to do so. After he found the hardware store's location, he began clicking around...

    It Would Destroy The Pc Industry And Cause Worldwide Economic Depression
