Computer Addiction

Sometimes I don’t know if I’m addicted to computers or if they are just easier to procrastinate on, but I have a really hard time doing work with real life things.

    I actually downloaded an app to limit my computer time. Then, after feeling desperate, I realised that pressing ‘escape’ quit the app. So much for that $5.49.

      Freedom software is 10 bucks and it does the same thing. The only way to get around it is to restart your computer. It’s great. I use it to stay focused when I’m writing. I love it.

    Real life work is overrated. Of course, I am typing this from my work computer… whoops. 😉


  3. It’s not addiction… its productivity!!! 🙂

    Happens to me a lot… it’s really problematic when the work I need to do needs to be done on the computer.
    I love the snow on your blog, BTW.

    Hey Rae, that is so very true.
    For some reason or another, the computer just crawls into my plans.

    Now that I’m blogging it’s even worse. The refresh button is my enemy. Maybe I got a new comment now!


  8. Holy Cow! I did this very thing… just yesterday!!! Ugh!

    I do this every day after I got to school! And I ALWAYS check my stats every 10 minutes..
    Obsessed much?


  10. I want to believe my computer is my friend, but it’s my enemy if I’ve been distracted on it for 3 hours. Now I know I’m not the only one who’s procrastinating! 😀

    Definitely easier to procrastinate on a computer, which is why we love it ^^ I know that the reason I whine when the internet connection is down is not because my work can’t happen without the internet, its because I can’t do my work unless I take a break every 10 minutes to check Facebook, tweet and read various blogs >.<


  12. I’m ‘doing exercices for French’. You see. But this counts as studying for English, ain’t it?

    Some people have breakfast in the morning.
    I go on the internet.
