    Time Filler

    I can think of lots of things besides the computer to do but I can do them later, maybe even tomorrow.  I procranstinate anyways, so the computer is an excellent way to pass the time.  My wife is even worse at it than I am.

    So Much to Do....

    I sit here and stare, even if there's nothing "good" to look at or do online.  It's a box that is my escape from reality.   It keeps me from exercising, cooking, cleaning, spending time with my family (not that they really WANT me to spend time with them...

    The Internet Is Always So Much More Interesting When You Have Something To Do

    I usually procrastinate via EP, ICHC, or looking up my crush. If I have to write a paper or whatever I usually am still logged onto EP just so I can take frequent mini breaks....lol. Damn me and my self-control.....

    Don't Need Much of An Excuse

    I think besides the day I was born--since I was two months premature--I have procrastinated.  Somedays, I just need a push to get things done.  Being on the computer is as good an excuse as any.

    I Call It Relaxing...

    But some days I do it just to avoid doing things I know I need to do or to avoid talking to people I don't want too... I waste alot of time here, but it also helps me mentally prep to do the things I am procrastinating on... Half bad and good....necessary evil I guess
