    It's My Lifeline

    I admit it, my life is on the internet. No connection means no life. I suffer from Social Anxiety Disorder, so going outside can be a battle and a half. And there has been a long time, when even signing online met nothing but being bullied, harassed, used, and tossed to the side...

    After All...

      ... I wouldn't be on EP without it. And, if given enough time, I'm sure I can come up with a few more uses for it.

    I Need It Too!

    I have no friends around here. So I absolutely need the internet to talk to other people, otherwise I would go crazy. If I had people to talk to all the time I probably really wouldn't need it. I would need it I guess to check some stuff out but other than that... My sister...

    Along with all the other reasons one stays online (keeping in touch with friends, blogging, etc) I need my internet to stay sane.  And I mean that literally.  The net is something I can focus on when reality gets too hairy to handle.  I can go online and focus all my attention...

    My Portal to Those I Love

    I first got on the internet in the early to mid 90s, with a text browser and a 14.4 bps modem. Old school nerd here. It is my connection to 90% of everyone and everything in my life. Before you blurt out "Get A Life, Dweeb!", you should read more about me.

    Without the Internet...

    My knowledge would be quite limited. Our library here severely sucks. It couldn't suck any worse unless it had 10 less books. Haha. Yeah, the internet's my contact for knowledge with the outside world.

    The Internet To Me

    A playground. Big and open. Toys multiplying with every step you take. Kids. Other kids to play with. Big kids, little kids, of all ages and backgrounds. The only bullies can be ignored, and can disappear from your life. That is the internet to me.
