I sit here to unwind from real life... <br />
sametimes i am here in the lull times at work some times work is so busy that i need to unwind when i get back home, doing shift work means some times i do not see friends for weeks at a time, this place is a good place to do that for de-stressing...LOL.
Have you tried this thing you call real life? It ain't all it's cracked up to be at times.
At first, it was an escape from RL. Now, it's because I have good friends here.
This is Real Life ain't it lol
real life sucks
I'm online a lot a couple of reasons:<br />
-Because of my ADHD. I love to learn new subjects and the internet is a wealth of information. Learning stimulates my mind, and my ADHD brain loves immediate stimulation. But it comes at a price, since my brain is also very impulsive and I can easily spend a whole day in front of the computer.<br />
-Ever since my teenage years, the internet has been an escape from my life of isolation and worries. As the question puts it, the internet disengages my life.<br />
-If you have nothing else better to do, its a great time waster.
Just a way to relax and laugh a little.
I agree with bobthebiker, <br />
it is a way to unwind from the rw, <br />
obviously, I'm not the only one decompressing here!
I still call it real life.. some of us have different ways of expressing ourselves and don't crave to have people constantly around us.. so this is a good way to have peace and still converse with people.. from a distance.
Real life is full of judgements based on looks. Online, I can pretend that the way I look doesn't matter. That's my reason anyway. : (
Drew, ...Good Morning, I ask myself that every day!<br />
Maybe it's the fascination of speaking to someone the other side of the globe and they are sitting where you are!<br />
....in front of "THE SCREEN!"
i have never really liked the internet much... seems like there is more drama and fake people here then in real life. i do not like talking to a number, i want to see and talk to people for them, not some fake *** name or number. anything you learn online has already been in a book somewhere and can be read as such. i make a limit to how much time i can use the internet, just so i can be who i am in life, so many people have failed thier familys because of this nonscence and no one is going to limit it for you.
you obvioulsy have not seen my life.
I can admit to being here for hours, but not days at a time. If I feel I'm getting too distracted from real life concerns, I take a EP and computer break for awhile. <br />
Usually, I find it's a break from the stress and worry of real life.
