Hi guys! Two days ago I posted why are you here in Mylot and Why its hard to convince our friend to join mylot. I'm Happy that I have lots of responds that day and yesterday that I don't make any post yesterday and spend it all reading your comments and replying to some comments if not all. But last night. I have a dream. And it stuck until I wake up. What am I doing? I'm single. I have no job, no work, no earnings. I been staying at my home for one year. Losses three businesses in a row this year. I just wasted my whole year! I stop going to gym. I stop exercising. I stop looking for work. I stop thinking of opening another business. I'm just here wake up 7am in the morning open my laptop and surf the net and visit Mylot. I just realize I'm making Mylot my personal security blanket. I'm an alcoholic. Now that I stop drinking I don Mylot. Now I'm Mylot addict!. If I turn off my laptop today I will just sit down all day doing nothing. And it means that my live is nothing at this point. ...... You guys are here because you have a reason. Some are retired..(but me I'm still young) Some are simple housewife..( How I wish I can be a simple househusband).lolz Some are simply socializing. (I'm done with social life) ..... I need to find real job soon. not some ptc or blogging..a real job. Is it hard to find here in the net?

You can stay here and make a little bit of money but you should also try to find a real job. I think that the best thing is to try to find a job outside the home, instead of sitting here all day. Some people can do this, me, I thought I could but I can't. It's more fun when you don't have to be on the computer all the time. Mylot is still a good source of income, and can be fun. It's okay to be addicted to mylot, and if you need to use it as a lean to, that is also fine. Lean on us and not on any bad habits that can cause your health havoc!

Yeah your right.. It better to spend time being a little productive than a little destructive. Yeah, I tried but living in the Philippines and looking for job here.. You need to be fit in all directions. If your less than a fighter you will never find a job. Also at my age. Its hard..

Well I hope you can find something, even if it's mere volunteer work, or very measly hours at a job. Good Luck on mylot as well, and I hope you can find something to help with income.

I'm not really on that kind of work..I have image to protect..lolz.. We have three maids in our house. I have a high salary job before. I own three business that turn and closed. I still have some money in the bank..But at current means of living I can't survive another year. My fatty bank account is only good for a year of expenses. Its already been a year and not income yet.

Ok you are not wasting your Time on mylot You can still do this in your spare time What you are wasting is time and effort to get yourself up and going again, I always say Never give up because if you do, you give up on Life and it seems that is what you are doing Well done for not drinking any more that is good Now you need to get motivated to concentrate on building your Life up again which yes will be hard, but as you say you are still young, so go for it Then come to mylot now and again just to get a bit of a break from building your Life back If there is a will, there is a way and believe me I know that is so true I hope you will do it I really do and good Luck to you

Mylot is definitely not a waste of time. It's I guess good enough for you so that you won't be able to do some things which are not good for you such as drinking too much. It's also a good way for you to express your thoughts and ideas about some things. What's best here is that you can also earn extra income especially if you will participate well in discussions here. Just enjoy

Thank you..and Just nine more post and you have a star my advance congratulations to you. Your right its better than drinking..much better..I spend lots of time in mylot but I learn and my mind is not idle..only my wallet..lolz But I don't agree that the best is its pays for participating in discussions. What best for me in mylot is knowing and having friends like you. Have a good day.

Hi, bulastika... I agree you need a job to make a living. That's not conflict with Mylot. Don't rely on this life for a living, that's not enough to survive. If finding a job is an urgent issue, then don't be picky. If you don't care about the job itself, then should be not so difficult to get a job. I wish you can enjoy Mylot as a fun place, not just as a source of income. For some change, you just need: to be well planned and resolved. Wish you a good luck and better future!

I'm not picky but its really hard to find a real job if your living in a third world country like the Philippines. Its really does. You can't find job if your unqualified and also you can't find a job if your overqualified. Yeah, your right I need a job. Soon.. Yeah.. Its really a nice place..and I don't treat mylot as a money maker..but more like a gateway or something.. Just like we do now.. I'm just letting myself out. .... Its seem your new here. ( I just base it on your no. of post) But you have some quality.. You have good future in this site..(In terms of followers and earning to) Good luck and have a nice day. If you reach 100 post you earn a start.. So try to make more post..

Yes, I agree about the job difficulty! The same is here in China. But for real life problem we still need to find solution in real life, in most cases. I do some part time translation work, so I have some free time, but my income is on a low level. Mylot is not good for making money, but at least it is something to do if I don't work. Good luck anyway!

Hi, if I can give an advice, you should seriously get a grip of yourself, because you are in bad shape, man. I really think you should go out and find something to do OUTSIDE your house. You may not be wasting your time in mylot but you are deffinately losing your mind staying at home. Go Out. Find a Job, Talk to a friend - if you dont have one - just talk to some stranger. I really think you need to do something that you like so that your life start going agian. I am sorry if my honesty offends you in some way. I really dont mean it that way

No..I'm not losing my mind..only financially drained..lolz ...err..If I take your advice and "just talk to some stranger"..Will I not look like a crazy person? Or just a peculiar? ... Okay, what I like is ..I like being log-on in mylot..lolz.. .. No harm done my friend..I enjoyed it. And I'm happy that you make an effort to give an advice.. Thanks.. ... And yeah..I really need a life outside the house and outside mylot..lolz ...

I dont think you are wasting your time in GTA. I am really sure that what you want to achieve , you can do, but just blaming mylot is not good. U see, people here come and help each other with thoughts , advises, relationships, and provide valuable information and so much. If you are really looking for a job, then you must look for it in real life and not in mylot. You might have stopped doing so many things, but that is not because you r mylot addict, its because u give importance to mylot. I know you will be very happy when u will recive money from mylot. But at the current time, I guess you shud no be hopeless and blame mylot. Think positive, have a good life

What is GTA? .. I'm sorry but I never mentioned or blaming mylot of anything.. And its other way around.. I said wasting my time in mylot does not mean that I'm blaming mylot. Its like saying I'm wasting my time sleeping on my bed all they.. Does it mean I'm blaming the bed because I wasted my time? Sorry totally have a wrong impression. .. I know that if you read my reply in upper thread..I even thanking them for being helpful. .. I will just quote" If you are really looking for a job, then you must look for it in real life and not in mylot" I just want to ask you something.. What is the essence of my post? Did you try to read and analysis and try to understand what I'm saying? Please quote to me that I considered mylot as a job? Cause I never said that.You can earn through mylot but I never thought somebody will think the being a mylot is having a job... ..... Now.. this one we agree.. and quote' You might have stopped doing so many things, but that is not because your mylot addict, its because you give imporantance to mylot". .... Once again..I'm not after the money..And yes tomorrow I can do some cashout.. That 10 dollars I earn in three weeks is nothing compare to I loss when I play poker. .. Once again ..I don't blame mylot.. What make you think and have an impression like that? Read the whole post and please understand it. .... Thank you.. I always think positive but I always face reality to.. Facing reality does it mean I don't think positive. ... I will try to have a good life. Its a struggle but I will try. ..... I know your comments are in good faith. But please my friend read and understand my post. And don't read it literally. I have given you some examples and maybe you can get the point of my whole topic. thank you and have a nice day.

First I want to say is you're not wasting your time.You make friends here,share your mind with us,you make us to know you're here . I like you since I read your words.In my mind ,you're very humorous.After reading this ,I suddenly realize that I have stop learnning for almost two years.I'm a college student in China,and I major in English.But for the last two years,I didn't learn any knowledge,I just read novels everyday.When I came to Mylot.com ,I found that I have forgot so many things I've learned,even the word "forgot".But I think I will be better soon,because I come here and know all of you .

Thanks..but that not want I meant a wasting time. let just say time management.. If I have work I can stay on mylot for two hours..In two hours I can make friends and enjoy mylot. So its not a waste of time being a mylotters. But what I'm saying about wasting my time..Is a literal sense of time. I spend whole day and night mylottings.. Its over spending of time in mylot. That's what I mean. ... I don't see it that way.. I may just mistaken you as an english teacher if you don't say that you came from China. May advise finish schooling.. No..you learn my girl you do. Read that novel again. You will realize that you have different concept than before..And its means you learned. ... My great grand father is also from Mainland China. He visit Philippines and get married to a Filipina wife. Then war broke out. In World War two all male members of the family has been killed by Japanese. When war ended one Chinese relative visit Philippines and look for survivors. When he found out that only female family member survive he don't even bother to list down their names..(He just interested for a male member of family but not with female member). He return to China (and maybe reported that none of our family survive). that the last communication our family have with our Chinese cousins.

hi bulastika^^;; i'm not a good talker and adviser for these kinds of problems but the way i see it, you still don't have a focus in life and you don't know yet what exactly you want that's why there's nothing to motivate you to start and pursue that dream. money is not the problem i think from the time i have encounter you here in mylot but the way you perceive life. you should know what will make you happy and satisfied. you told me you are young, at 29, maybe...or maybe not. did you already established something to be proud of? if yes, well in good, if not..then start it. it's not actually about making money all the time... so here in mylot, you are wasting your time because you aren't focusing your precious time to something more worthy for your life..make mylot a past-time or a hobby. if you are doing other things worthwhile and then come to mylot to relax and interact, then that is not wasting at all.. this is just the way i see it, hope you won't mind

I think you should go now and find another,more stable source of income. Dont just rely on myLot as a major source of income. Just go on.dont lose hope. I know you'll find ways to be successful. Goodluck to you. Hope for the best.

Yeah your right. I should go out and look for job. ..But a little correction. I don't rely on mylot as a money maker. I spend lots of time in mylot simply because I'm addicted to it. I enjoy so much here that I lost tract of time. And I'm been paid doing things that I enjoyed. ..... And thank you. ... Its look like your new here. Just some tips if you want. Make a post three to five a day. Try to reply each comments you received. I'm only three weeks old but I earned 10 dollars already.. So its really a nice catch for me.

Not really, but then again, it depends on your situation. If you're looking at mylot purely from a earning prospective, you should look elsewhere, but if its to enjoy and participate in discussions like this, I think you're in the right place. I have been here for the past 4 months and am yet to get my first pay, but what keeps me going is the pleasure to interact and develop friends from across the globe which would be difficult through any other forum.

Do not take responsing at mylot as your job,you should do this in your spare time.You can meet many friends around the world in mylot,that is the most interesting.

Did I say that? I never mentioned or say that I treat mylot as a job..Did I? I thought I just said that I spend lots of my time in mylot rather than smoking or drinking and I don't have a job. But I never mentioned that I treat mylot as a job. Yeah, you can earn..but treating it as a job is a different story.

bulastika no I dont think you are wasting your time here but you must lose that weight,it worries me and should worry you too. so find time for some exercise, and good for you you are not drinking. like yourself, tell yourself I am unique, I am bulastika, I love myself then go out and get yourself the best'darned job you c an find. then mylot when you are off the job. there are few really high paying jobs that are not scams on the net, so get out among people and join the human'race again. you will like yourself better and be 'healthier. and keep us all informed so we can cheer you on.

Thank you.. Your right..But its hard to do that to be done. Its the making of the first step that the most difficult. Yeah..I did stop drinking, and smoking, ... I have one invitation for a christmas party.. They want me to attend.. But I'm still thinking about it. Its a weird feeling to see lots of people if your confine in you own home. But I'm planning to attend for my own sake. I do go out once or twice month. but not because of social function like christmas party ..just simply going out. So really this christmas party is my first gathering that i attended this whole year. So some think its just natural behavior to go and attend. My problem is I don't have that natural social behavior..Or its in a dormant stage. Now I don't know how to interact face to face. eye to eye.. ... And its on wenesday already..I already bought gifts to give..But I told them I will just pass by to give my gifts..Because I have lots to in my house.
