The big ones are Pokecommunity, Facebook, and Yahoo Mail. I also go to several fan art sites including DeviantArt and Pixiv to hunt for pictures of my favorite anime characters (I do searches for Blue/Leaf and Pretty Cure fanart most every day) and I also check various fansub groups' web sites to see if any anime series I'm following have had new releases, which I'll either download or watch streaming. I'm on YouTube less often nowadays than I was before, as I think the selection of good anime music videos on there is drying up. I'm also a frequent visitor to TripAdvisor and QualityInn.com to get my daily does of hotel/motel goodness.

First I check my forums, aka PC! I'd explore around my section and post/do modding, then dig through any other forum I might visit and explore there. PC is usually the first thing I do when I get online.

Afterwards, I check Youtube for any subscription videos that might interest me and either watch them right there or procrastinate and do it later. Then I plug in my external hard drive since it has all my anime and skim through some of my favorite episodes. Rinse and repeat.

Not much else, sadly. D|;

Usuallly I check forums and Facebook first. I browse Bulbagraden PC, and EvergrandeCity the most and Serebii and some other forums occasionally. I also look a DA and Twitter every once in a while.

I usually also listen to music or watch YouTube videos and draw or color a drawing. I try to check my email as much as I can, but I don't do it as often as I should.I occasionally play this game called Teledraw as well. and some other games. I try to do most of things all at the same time, and it never works out to well.

Usually PC and maybe AQW. Look at new releases, while I check my usual threads on PC. Check 4th gen gaming. Then mail and reply. Barely facebook. Serebii. And if I am well and truly bored, bbc.

And if I play games, SCII, LoL, SK, CivIV (yeah Im still ancient) etc.
Which means StarCraft II, League of Legends, Spiral Knights, Civilizations IV (yeah Im still ancient) etc.

Okay. So I get on my laptop, check NASCAR.com & here. When I'm selling stuff on eBay, I check its status. Every once in a great while I'll check Facebook & Twitter. Depending on my mood I'll bring youtube up. But aside from that, I always have my MAL, Netflix, eBay, NASCAR.com tabs always up on my Google Chrome, & use sites to watch Anime on FireFox. I use Chatzilla also so there's a 3rd window there. That's really about it. Racing-Reference.com is the site I often go on late Sunday or Mondays to check statistics especially.

I have Skype & MSN on here also, but I never get on them lol, even if I have to x them out every time I get on. x) So in other words, I guess I like to be on my laptop to watch TV shows/Movies/Anime & chat with people in general I guess?

Note: I realise how wrong the first line sounds... but I have a girlfriend, so don't take it the wrong way. (If you saw something dirty in that note as well, no pun was intended).

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

Probably browsing the 'net and listening to music. Evernote would be running in the background too to download whatever the hell I decide to "clip".

Love is the Law, Love under Will.

Some explanation on terms: Do what... & Love is... | 93 | Aiwass | Holy Guardian Angel
Getting back into Pokemon after 5 years of being out of it... this is going to be a hard learning curve...
Here is what I look like, in case you were curious.
Babalon is my mother, and she loves me.
I'm an initiate of a secret society... Hmm, do secret societies have websites?

I'll probably crack open FL Studio, MSN, Skype, and open a few tabs in Google Chrome. That's usually one day's worth of activities right there.

I usually use my laptop as a way to connect to the internet and, pretty much, that's it. However, I'm trying to get myself into PC gaming, although I might have some issues seeing I'm using a laptop designed for internet browsing and not much else.

Hm internet browsing, watching streams, play PC games such as League of Legends/Torchlight 2, MSN, play emulators, twitter, youtube, and work with it (typing + coding for compsci university courses.) The portability is mostly appreciated to bring it to university, but that's about it XD;

Skype is always on, no exceptions; I'm generally browsing forums as well as YouTube, or playing a lightweight PC game on my laptop whenever I get the chance to.

My Desktop (in Sig) is set up to be the central hub. It's role is to Download, store, & serve media wirelessly wherever I want it. It also serves as the master sync station for my phone and tablet too.
My portable (also in Sig) is mainly used for school, games, general surfing, and on occasion running the dual OS for some retro gaming.

I lurk here, listen to an online radio, browse medical pages on Wikipedia, etc.

In the morning I listen to the second half of a thing similar to a podcast. I save the first half (which the website records for you) to listen to in the evening (I tend to get into little depression ruts at night, and listening to it helps).
I can't think of a good signature.

I visit a lot of sites.

My usual schedule includes YouTube, DeviantArt, Tumblr, Twitter, browsing PC, Serebii, Ever Grande and other Pokemon forums I'm on.

And I also check my daily bit of news. My other spare time I find pictures to make new avatars/signatures with.

So yeah, mainly internet browsing for me.

I usually browse around my favorite websites, Skype with friends, check/respond to emails, Facebook, listen to music and chat on IRC.

I also use one of my computers to run two web servers (one is IIS and the other is Apache) and an IRC server as well.

Visiting forums, listening to music, playing Minecraft, and programming. It's kinda ancient, but runs Minecraft perfectly. And like Hikari, I browse for pictures to edit into signatures/avatars. I think of my computer as my "blank slate".

As many of you here, I can't say I have "free time" when I use the computer, because I usually have to do homeworks or similar. Aside from that, Twitter is my site by default, I check out some new videos at Youtube, see what's new on series.ly (it's a spanish website which hosts links to watch tons of TV shows, movies and stuff) and read some news (mostly about Apple and Nintendo). I visit PC every day, though I seldom post because I'm not very imaginative at this moment. And I always try to take care of the websites I'm currently running.

Allez, hop!

I visit social websites such as Facebook and Twitter, PokeCommunity of course and YouTube during my free time. Since I'm a student, I also use my computer for assignments and uni-related stuff such as downloading notes or reading up lecture slides.

1. Writing. This includes novels, short stories, and occasional fan fiction. Considering writing is my job, though, this may not really count as "free time."
2. Roleplaying. I only roleplay on my two sites and a third that I consider more "casual." (I admit, I treat mine like jobs. )
3. AIM. I instant message friends to chat.
4. Tumblr. I only signed up to follow blogs with lots of images but I do reblog a lot of junk.
5. Facebook. I hate Facebook but I use it to communicate with family members who don't have cell phones or use AIM.
6. The rest is used on listening to music/finding new music, reading manga, watching anime/random videos, or playing video games like Plants vs. Zombies.

I spend probably 80% of an average day on the computer since I live in a small town 45 minutes away from all my family and friends. It's just me and the fiance living out here, so I stay connected mostly through the internet.
