Yesterday my internet went down for the whole day. Considering I didn't get home from school until nearly 3:15, it didn't matter. But once I got home, I nearly went crazy. I HAD to get on a computer and go to Micechat, check my email, check my Myspace, play VMK, do everything like that. It felt really weird. My dependence on the Internet in my life has made a huge impact on me. I was actually confused about it because I was so connected to it. I NEEDED it. It was like a drug almost. Addicting. It was shocking. I am glad I am getting away from the computer for 5 days. I need it. Yesterday I realized how much I needed it and wanted internet. I actually got my homework done at a reasonable time. I actually sat in the family room, living room, whatever it is, with my family and watched a movie. It has been, gee, I don't even know that last time I sat and watched a movie with my family.
Here's a little test for all of you: Take one day off the computer. Just don't even open that little Firefox icon, IE icon, Opera icon, or whatever you use. Don't click it. See how much it affects you.
My little mini-essay for the day. And if anyone was wondering, which I doubt, that is why I wasn't on yesterday
