Some days I have wished if I would get few more minutes or hours of free time to browse internet. But I will not get those extra minutes..Today I had some 3 hours of free time. But I did not have any mood to sit before the computer or browse the internet. After 2 days of holidays, I thought of working more today. But I did not even have a desire to boot my laptop. I just spent my leisure time by reading books. I cannot assume why I did not wish to browse the net today..Have you ever felt like this? Have you ever felt bored to sit before your computer or browse the net?

Yes, sometimes I find that I've run out of things to read or do on the internet. I usually frequent a few sites (like Metafilter and Reddit), and sometimes, if I'm really bored, I go through the Flash game archive on Metafilter. However, I do believe it's easier to get entranced by the internet if I stay away from it for a few days (I usually read during that time). Once I get back, it all feels fresh again.

That is true..After a break, you will be fresh and back again for browsing..

I felt the same thing, sometimes, I get so tired sitting in front of the computer, the radiation hurts my eyes, and my back is killing me. Sometimes I'd rather read a book, stroll in the mall or do window shopping. Or more so sleep..lol..quite lazy these days, I wish the internet could offer more.

yes, I do feel that a lot of times.. sometimes, I want to play games or do mylot but I feel like I do not have the energy to do it or sometimes I am too bored to do any of it... But a lot of times I get bored as I browse the net.. just tire out of doing all this and that and my last choice is to shut down my laptop and just watch tv...

Yes, many times have I found myself extremely bored being online. At times like those I usually put on some music to listen to, search for new bands that I might like, or just simply take a nap. Taking a nap isn't really too great of an alternative, but it passes the time.

I often have the same feeling like yours. I am facing the internet almost every day, in the office and also in home. It makes me loosing my mood to browse internet. Sometimes I just turn my YM or Pidgin on, then I do another works.

I am using the Computer at work already. Mostly the whole day, so when I am home, I try to get along without even turning it on. At home I am not browsing the net, just opening the site, I needed information from or want to arrange something. Maybe you are bored sometimes because you have to speak to somebody and not only write things. When I feel that way, I think that the computer is making me more lonely and then I am calling someone and talk.

I always find that when I have the time to sit and browse the computer I am never in the mood to do so. When I dont have much time however I want to do loads of things. Today I have a few hours to spare and I am just not in the mood for it at all!! I just feel like going back to bed today.

To tell the truth, yes I have found myself in a situation from time to time not wanting to be bothered with the computer. I do like to browse the internet but after a while I really need a break. I think that sitting in front of the computer can be very addicting. My husband as a case in point can sit at the computer for many hours. I myself have to get up every once in a while to collect my thoughts. I like to work on this site of MY Lot, but even then I have to take a rest and sometimes I just don't even feel like logging on at all.

hhhahaha been through that before too. well, it's really tiring to be infront of the computer for long hours! sitting and interacting through the internet is still different compared to live interaction that i get when i visit my friends or go out with them. when i have work, i keep on saying to myself that i will spend more time in mylot when it's my day off, but when my day off came, i go out and spend time with my friends because it makes me bored facing the computer the whole time! weird!

That is true..Many days I too had planned that I should spend more time at mylot..But things do not remain the same as we expect and my plan will be changed. I would not have a mood even to log-in to my account.

i have the same feeling sometimes. i think it is a little strange. it is the same case with my coming to mylot. when i'm busy and have no time to come, i wish i could come and see the discussions and give some responses but when i do have time, sometimes i do not like to read or respond anything.

There are really times we feel bored to sit before the computer and browse the internet. As persons we need sometime to loosen up and do other things to divert our attention. In my case, during weekends, i only spend about 3 hours on the internet because i make sure to spend quality time with my family and just rest in the home. This is my diversion and to get bonded with my family as well.

That is true..that is why I never use my home laptop at the weekends - other than that in case of emergency..

hello smilyn I think it is understandable to us.After some hard work in a day, i think many people want to have a good rest to relax. some one will go to bed for a while slpeeing,some one will watch the TV lying on the sofa; some one will go out to take a walk in the park; or like you, want to boot the computer and surf online. all we do is in order to have a good relaxation.So when you feel no interest before the computer,maybe you are tired to surf sitting before the computer,maybe reading booking is more comfortable to have a quality rest.It is just my opinion. In any way, as long as you keep yourself energetic after the rest way you choose.lol good luck

Yes I do, although I don't work outside the home, I have other responsibilities that keep me away from what I want to do. I go to an online university, a husband that I have to take to work and pick him up from work because he doesn't have a driver's license, I have a 6 year old daughter that I have to take care of, I pay bills, cook, clean, and everything in between. This household could not go withoout me. As you can tell from this, I run a very busy life. I don't get to do everything that I want to do. Sometimes I get so tired, that I don't even want to deal with computer. but it makes me feel more relaxed to listen to music online.
