faze in life, or a new way of life?

Have you found that you are now spending less time on the internet then you have in the past 4 yrs?

I have dropped from 5 hours to 1 hour. And I get more accoplished.

Also, have you downsized or increased your list of sites visited?

I went from 4-7 a day to 3. And two are a quick check of e-mail.


So is it just a faze in life, or a new way of life?

No, I am on the internet (mostly FTE) just as much, if not more, than usual. I know, I am sad.

After finding this site...my internet time increased from two to four hours. The extra two hours are well worth it, too!

Actually, I find I'm spending less time on the computer in general in the last few years. . .I visit FTE, EBAY, and a game clan site every few days, and I'm rarely on on the weekend

Its probably best if it turns out to be a new way of life, though now I find myself more bored than usual at night becuase I have nothing else to do

In addition to all of that, do yall find your eyes hurting if your spend more time on the internet? I've only just been on a few minutes and my eyes are startin to hurt already, causin me a headache. So I was just wondering if yall have that same problem also?

And with music?

I hate loud music, hate bass etc. so I now only listen to Chirstian talk radio. And really don't like watchin tv or movies. I now rather read.
Am I old before my time??? lol I have everyone telling me I am.

Do you wear glasses? Might want to get your eyes checked.

I can see well enough, both distance and up close, but if I don't wear my glasses and then spend much time focusing on things in the distance (like the chalkboard at the front of the classroom, or driving more than a hundred miles or so) my eyes start to hurt, and are sore every night by the time I go to bed. No shame in wearing glasses if you need 'em.

I was visiting a friend last week, and took mine off to roll around on the floor with the dogs, and ended up leaving them there. I won't be able to get them until after Thanksgiving. I'd forgotten how tired my eyes get when I don't wear them.

I mainly just check out this site, ebay, and yesterdays tractors. I used to just hang in the 04-07 F150 forum, but spend a little more time now that I use the rest of the site. The loud music really doesn't do much for me anymore, I've even thought of selling the sub/ amp out of my ZX2, but I'm not quite ready yet, so i do agree there. I have switched over to listening to country music about 95% of the time. Most people think i'm older than I am by the way I act. Mostly because I have my stuff together, unlike alot of people my age who still have no direction in life(I'm 22). I don't spend tons of money on things as I'm saving up my cash to buy a house within the next year. Even though my signature shows different, I have so many ideas for toys, but I'm too cheap to act on them.
