I Waste Way Too Much Time On the Internet

And so do you, or you wouldn't be here! 11,515 People

    Before computers came into my life I was an

    avid reader. I bought books and read them, even while I was on the bowl I brought in my favorite Anne rice novel or Michael Crichton novel and read it while I was pooping. In 1997 I had my first experience with computers. I saw an ad for this thing called WebTV. And I bought it...

    Tonight Is One Of Those Nights...

    It's super cold out, I am tired and in a funk. Here I sit, on my pc.... Yes, I am kind of wasting time. I could be doing more productive things, but I am always on top of everything and I work hard. So, as long as my work is done I believe that I've earned the right to waste my...

    Yep - That's Me!

    I fully admit that I spend way too much time on the internet.  I am an internet fiend -- always searching for information and looking for things that pique my curiosity.  Once I start surfing, it is a non-stop free-for-all adventure that leads me to unusual places I...

    My "study" time is basically all wasted on the

    Internet- I'm supposed to spend 30-40 hours a week doing independent study but I'm lucky if I do 3-4; I end up watching YouTube clips, catching up on TV shows, checking social media over and over and playing games. I'm just so unmotivated to do my work and wasting time on the...

    Addiction

    I find the internet more addictive than nicotine or cocaine- literally speaking. I need to plan my day around not being near computers with internet access. It's almost funny.

    I've used the internet

    for a crutch for a very long time. While others used sex, booze or other drugs, I took on the internet as my addiction to drown out whatever it is I was feeling on the inside: pervasive restlessness. I know now that if I want to end my addiction then I can't go back to the...

    I Really Wish I Didn't Do This!

    I have something to do. It is important, possibly a bit dull and most likely has a deadline for its completion. And here it is - the very situation where I will go and waste way too much on the internet! If I have some free time, and could feasibly just sit around and surf the...

    Now that school has started, I do not have the time to waste on the Internet that I used to have. I miss writing on EP but I have to get my priorities straight this time of year and, unfortunately, EP can't be at the top of the list. The first few weeks of school are hectic...
