Meh. - June 15th 2009, 08:32 PM

Well I'm apparently addicted to my PC, Mac & 360. I guess its true. What ever free time I spend on that. I wake up early in the morning and play computer games. I get home, I play computer games for 3-4 hours, then use my mac and my PC. Now that its summer, I'm spending all of my time on my different screens.

I just don't know what to do. I've got a couple friends who I'll hang out with outside of school but they're always busy. So I'm normally staying home and doing nothing but play video games. What else am I supposed to do?!?! I've got tuns of friends at school but none of them I really want to hang out with.

Wtv. I've uninstalled computer games when I realized how much I've played but I still don't understand what I'm supposed to do to pass the time.

Alright well, I was just like you a couple weeks ago. I realized I had exams so I took breaks. It was hard. Anyway, you should limit yourself, technology is addicting. Like this time I was addicted to Guitar Hero, I started seeing notes on the road and I actually got a ticket once.

I always wonder what people used to do 20 years ago to keep themselves busy... read/write/listen to music/play pong or something?? I dunno... It's good that you realized you spend too much time playing video games, and that you are taking steps to make it better But, I feel so many people our age have this problem. We're overwhelmed with mind rotting technology. When I don't have the internet, I don't even know what to do with myself! lol. Just try hard to find something productive to do that you enjoy. Sorry I couldn't be more help....
