    my smart phone answering questions on EP or reading articles with information I don't need. Not to mention I check my email at least ten times. I am insecure about my intelligence and I feel as though I have to prove something. I need to differentiate between what I always do...

    Affecting My Health

    I think I'm on my computer to much

    because of my "internet" friends. They tell me that I'm worth something, I'm pretty, and how strong I am. And it's mostly because it gives me more self esteem than you would think. Everyone around me just doesn't really notice me I guess. I don't know it's hard to not get sad...

    But There Is So Much to Do.

    Sometimes I can't seem to get enough of the computer.  I am always finding something new on here everyday.  I love reading stuff on here, spending time on EP, chatting with friends and playing games.  I don't know what I would do without my Internet.
