    I really don't know how to answer this question. I am very new at learning how to use a computer, and I have learning disabilities, so it is very difficult for me to learn the simplest things on it. This site is helping me to learn a lot. I get confused often on how to click onto...

    I Hate It

    Most probably it's my catholic upbringing that makes me hate procrastination.  Alas, I'm a terrible procrastinator.  The result is that I'm the victim of deep feelings of guilt, sometimes. I don't put the blame on modern technology.  Even without it I would be a...

    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...

    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

    I use anything possible to procrastinate.

    I put my phone away and my iPad and my laptop, and I was productive for a good 30 minutes, yet I couldn't sit still. I thought having half a glass of coke would help keep me up, but it's made me jittery and unable to concentrate even more than before. It's going to die off in a...

    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.
