Are you trying to take me away from my source of nourishment? It's summer, school's out for many of us. Re post this in a month or two when school starts again.
#1) I maintain an overall 90% average. Whether I spend time on the computer or not won't effect that. In fact, I use the computer to study (powerpoint presentations to help quiz myself)
#2) Not eating? In that case I should stay on the computer even more.
#3) I avoid going outside during the summer so I don't get my ass burned off. I'll go out late afternoon, and I try to go out at night as much as I can (Although I have no friends so thats kind of hard)
#4) I'm not depressed when away from my computer. I do get bored, but thats because when you're stuck inside the house in the middle of the day there is nothing on tv, no reason to go outside, no friends to see, you find theres nothing else to do.
#5) If you get headaches get a flat screen monitor. Less harmful to your eyes and will help with headaches.
#6) I ignore my family computer or not ;)
#7) I don't like to particurally admit that I do a lot of work on the computer (not the best way to pick up girls)
#8) Neglicting responsibilities: Nah I still manage to keep up with what I need to do.
#9) Forgetting the date: This always happens during the summer! Without school there is no sense of passing time.
#10) weight gain: I've always been fat. Computer has nothing to do with it. Btw, how do you gain weight if you don't eat?
I spend a lot of time on the internet but I dont' exactly show those warning signs...
uhhh u guys dont get it! jesus christ ok thats great for u madman! that means ur like me! u avoid it! so do i i spend alot of time on the internet too! this is only if u get addictied! ok u dont get it at all! i post this on alot of forums because its a very dangerus thing for kids and some young adults!!! if u dont have it thats great for u but do u have to put it down? somepeople have had it! my friends have had it alot of people in my collage have! but do u have to bad mouth the warning!?! and btw if u dont go outside thats very bad...and very creepy!
i guess i shoudnt post anything since everyone has to have some oppossing comment to try and make me look like an idoit!
Now it's time for my serious evaluation of the effects of computer use.
1.Grades-In all of I had a GPA above 3.0 In my freshman year of high school my gpa was 3.6.
2.Eating-Same as madman
3.Not going outside-I'm outside about 3-4 hours a day in the summer.
4. Deppression-No, not depressed. I'd call it lonely, with all my friends on vacation.
5.Headaches-I get maybe 3 headaches a month.
6.Ignoring family/friends-I tend to isolate myself from my family because things get boring when I'm with them. As for friends, I mentioned above that they were on vacation.
7.Lying to family/friends about time spent on computer-My family knows I'm on the computer a lot, but what else is there to do? My friends all spend much of thier time on their PCs too.
8.Neglecting responsibilities-I do everything I should except practice trumpet which I don't do anyway.
9.Forgetting the date-That's what the little clock on the taskbar is for. When I do forget the date it's because I'm tired from staying up too many days in a row.
10.Weight gain-My weight is averege for my age, but it shows itself in fat rather than muscle. During the school year i bike every day so it tends to decrease.
I just wish I could spend more time online, but I have only so many hours a month before I have to pay extra. I'm getting a cable connection this month though.
jesus u too kahless! well so much for friends on the forums!
madman please do me a favor and close the thread! iv learned not to give my opinion!
Sorry if I didn't take this as seriously as it was intended. Nobody is trying to make you look like an idiot here.
and btw if u dont go outside thats very bad...and very creepy!
I do go outside. Just not in the strong heat of the middle of the day.
