The internet is too much of a distraction

    Every time I stay up too late browsing the net, I say I'll never do it again - yet here I am posting on here at 12:45 EST.

    You need to find a new distraction. Give yourself a cut-off time to turn off your computer. Then do other stuff, like clean up and get ready for the next day, and then go to sleep. I usually try to shut down and get to sleep by 1am.

    If you use a laptop you could just unplug it and when the battery runs out, your internet fun is over...

    And as a side note (not meant as a hijack) sometimes I wonder what it would have been like if "the internet" was around back when I was in highschool and college. I had a hard enough time staying focused on school as it was. But what did I do back then? I didn't have a TV, a cell phone...how did I waste time so effectively back then!

    I'm online 75% of the day if I'm not working or at the gym.

    Edit: 90% of the day

    I've set alarms, lol. Ok, still got 6.5 hours and I got up feeling refreshed, oddly.

    I'd rather browse the internet and play video games. I wonder how libraries stay in business these days--oh right, they charge institutions enormous amounts of money to gain subscriptions to e-journals.

    Hello! What else you got to do? Go out and play with the polar bears?

    Try beating off earlier in the night. I lose all interest in the internet afterwards.

    There's something else better than the internet?

    Soon you'll hear from the member with 50,000 posts, telling you how he's managed to maintain a full and exciting life offline. He's LYING.

    Those who can...DO. Those who wish they could, BLOG about it.

    I don't make any lies or excuses for it. I'm here to do this on the internet, facebook and stumbleupon and tumble my way through the net. What could be better, for a single person who doesn't know anyone in town, or have a car to et around?*
