View Full Version : Time well spent?

How do you feel about the amount of time you spend here, or on other forums and sites?

I honestly don't feel good when it comes to seeing how much time I spend on forums and some other sites. Could do better with spending less time offline, cause I've always wanted to get somewhere in real life. But, the thing is I'm not very social and I have to try better for my well being; cause I'm known as anti-social in real life and it doesn't make me feel any better about myself.

my online activity is sporadic and fleeting. i have no online social obligations so i don't feel a particular way about it, i'm just here when i'm here.

I'm fine with it. I'm not on all the time, yet my dad manages to find a problem with it.

I'm here pretty much every spare minute I have. If I'm at home, I'm online. I really don't have a problem with this, other than the fact that it has put me behind on my reading schedule. It doesn't cut into my work or social life, because I'm only spending the time I used to spend sitting on Facebook here anyway.

If I'm at home, I'm online.
Same here. I can always do what I want to do and switch to forum browsing easily. As for 'time well spent', you bet.
This site taught me a lot of good things, and I'm still learning from it. I'm having fun at the same time. So yeah.

I spend far too much time online and not enough doing actually productive things. I'm probably more active here than I have been in the past but my time on PC is still a small fraction of the total time I'm actually on the internet.

It fills certain needs :P But, I would like to get out more @-@ Maybe find me a nice boyfrend or something :P

I spend too much time on Tumblr. It got so bad that I openly talk about it with my friends during the school day. The upside to this is that I'm not addicted to Facebook anymore!

I don't regret when I actually find something I instantly want to post on and add to that discussion. But when I am lurking around actually trying to find something I think I could find better use for that kind of time. Or should I say I should probably lurk less.

I used to spend a loooooot of time on the internet, but I've beaten the addiction I used to have. Not to say I don't spend a lot of time on the internet, but nowhere as much as I used to.

I spend faaaaaar too much time on PC. >.< I'm addicted to it, I guess. @_@; Ughhhhhh.

I kinda spend the majority of my time on the internet on PC...
If it wasn't this it'd be something else so.

My daily internet activities only consist of browsing PC, Tumblr, and talking on msn. Really besides that anything else I do online is really minimal. Out of everything I do online I probably spend the most time talking on msn, but to be honest it doesn't bother me because I don't consider it time poorly spent seeing as I'm talking to people I wouldn't normally be able to talk to through any other means.
So on a day to day basis I'm only on for a few hours, usually just talking, and then when that's over proceed to do something else offline. I still manage to do enough social things with friends every week to be socially content and I look back to a few years ago when I was almost always online and realize I'm actually happy with the amount of time I'm online now compared to then when I used to beat myself up about it.

Right now, I'm quite content, I'm spending more time on studies than last year, and I spend an hour or less on here everyday nowadays.
September 24th, 2011, 08:13 AM
Well, whenever I go online, its mainly just for PC and Facebook. Maybe sometimes some other forums I am a member of, but mainly just those two. I think I spend a reasonable amount of time online everyday, not too much to be considered addictive.

By most standards I'm sure the time I spend on PC would be considered too much, but I don't mind at all. I'm meeting and talking to people, learning new things, getting all my news from OC, having fun. For me, being on PC is a fun thing to do, just as much as if I were outside and reading or something.

I spend to much time on the internet.
I am on almost every Pokemon Forum you can find.
So pretty much, I need to get a life. >.>

I spend a lot of time on the Internet. Probably more than I should, but whatever. :p

Right now my life is sort of at a standstill and because of that, I spend too much time on the computer; PC specifically. I don't actually enjoy spending too much time online anymore, and for that I try to cut down the amount of time I spend on here and on the computer in general. Instead, I try to take that extra time to do something else until life gets moving for me again.

I feel that I don't spend as much time here because of school. But when I do get on the Internet, I spend most of my time here.
September 24th, 2011, 06:09 PM
Well, it's a tossup; either I spend it here or correcting college essays. lol

I probably spend too much time on the Internet in general, but not as much time on PC as I should. :/ Compared to how I was a few years back, I only visit the site for an hour at most, when I used to be on for hours and hours and hours. Considering how anti-social I am, I probably should stick around more often, talk to more people, that kind of thing.
...but knowing me I won't. *sighs*

I'm perfectly happy with the amount of time I spend online, especially on PC. I have a lot of real life commitments which limit my time spent online and, with regards to PC, while I certainly make sure to visit it every day, it's certainly not the website I frequent the most. After Facebook, Twitter, personal e-mail, school e-mail, The AV Club and Sporcle comes PC.

I honestly wish I could spend more time online, but now that I'm not in college and we have usage caps, I don't think I'm spending time enough online. As for spending a lot of my time on PC, I don't have any regrets since I really don't have toomuch else to check online anyway, and I usually handle that business before coming on here.
