Supreme Time Waster

I finally got the Internet at home. And I must say that you can surely get lost in the World Wide Web. I used to be content with just an hour online a day. I still am. I’m not sure what I did after that hour but I didn’t log off. I stayed on and whittled away the hours.

I think I am beginning to understand how people can spend so much time online. I had to force myself to shut it off because I really was just wasting my time. And I had things that needed to be done.

So I turned off my new laptop and pulled out my old outdated one. This way I won’t be tempted to “just go check” or explore something else random that just happens to jump into my brain. It’s so tempting to do that, even now.

I’m beginning to think that getting Internet service was not a good thing for me.

  1. I’m trying ECD, I’m trying. The novelty might wear off, right? It’s just new and unexplored territory right now.

    Although, I actually did manage to finish my lesson plans for the week tonight, so I can’t be that bad.

  2. Hi Chase,

    I hear you. When I first got internet service the only thing that saved me was that my computer was at work (we didn’t have our home office then). When we moved to the home office, I found myself spending more time online.

    Now that I’m blogging, it’s hopeless.

  3. Hey Barbara,

    I think it is something everyone has to go through at first when they first get Internet service. It is so easy to get lost in the world wide web.

    But I will get a handle of it soon, I hope.

  4. Chase, did you ever see the Simpsons episode where Homer reached the end of the internet…I wonder how long that took him. I know I could play for hours and never get to the end.

    Now get back to work!
