i've been kind of a work-a-holic before coming into myLot.. now that i've been here for a bit, i've re-discovered the joys of just leaning back in my seat once in a while and exercise my mind & my typing fingers and enjoy a bit of life!

Mario, I'm new to MyLot and I'm finding it my little distraction throughout the day too. I work at home and sometimes I just need a break, MyLot lets me interact with so many intersting people and kick back for a little before getting back to work.

well, maybe before I join mylot i was a study-holic :) because I spent even more time for homeworks and some new projects, but now I spend a little bit more time for some other things lke sharing some new ideas with my new friends here on mylot and I feel great because of it! # yes, Jemme- it really works like a disattraction from the work!

disattraction? is that like some sort of distracting attraction? because myLot sure is one attraction that distracts me always welcome djemme! regardless of age, or race or creed in life, myLot is such a cool place to chill out and calm those stressed out nerves. well, it is for me hang around a bit. cruise through the topics & discussions. there may be some that really tickles your fancy. when you find them, that's when you'll be hooked..line & sinker

i just read books or surf the internet. sometimes, i play the piano though i am not good at it. i also eat and eat and eat. and of course eat, oh, did i say that? and since i do lots of chores at our house, i do not sleep on my spare times. but i sometimes find myself sleeping while reading. so generally, i read, play the piano, eat, sleep and surf the net during my spare time. and i also eat, anyway.

well, as I can see you spend the most of yuor spare time in front of the computer. thre are really many others who do that too,a nd I think it is not that healthy, because we injure our eyes and also our back and neck if we dont have the right pose while sitting on it!

actually no. as i said, i also read and do some stuff-- not just sitting in front of the computer and make the day pass without making myself productive.

well, even so, we must really try to stay away from the computer for a bit longer, no matter what we do, because day by day we get addicted to it!

In my spare time, I watch my son play baseball/softball depending on which night it is, play games on the computer and chat here on myLot. During the spring and summer I spend almost every night at the ball field until at least 9 or 10. But thats ok because he is very good at ball and we like to encourage him. Somehow I need to figure out how to get a few more hours in each day so that I can spend more time here on myLots. LOL

well, I really think that you don't have to spend more time on myLot if you have such wonderful activities like playing some games( on the ball field I mean) or watching your son playing. don't reject him becauseof some things like myLot or something like that!

Oh no chance of me missing watching him play. The only reason I have ever missed a game or practice was if I was too sick to go. We schedule everthing we do around ball games and college scouting showcases. We are hoping that he will possibly get a scholorship for baseball, so we have to stay on top of it.

I usually eat, sleep, talk/hang out with my friends, family and boyfriend, read and write. I not only write on here and on other sites and I read books and articles and such. Can't hurt to learn, right? I love to eat too and sleep. (:
26 May 10
well, just like me. because during the working days I dont have time enough for my friends, that's why I meet them on my spare time. I also like to read a lot and I have read many ooks till date and like to do that!

Stepahnie, I laughed when I read your reply ... you sound just like me. I could have written that response myself. My only problem is I tend to not get enough sleep, never enough time. And eating, well, I wasn't blessed with the metabolism for indulgence ;) I have to watch my diet carefully or I tend to gain weight, but I LOVE good food.
26 May 10
well, djemme! I also don't sleep for too long- maybe 7.5-8 hours a day, but as you know it is enough to feel better and recharge your batteries :) as long for the eating I also don't have a good metabolism, but that doens't make any matter to me, because I am not that worried about my weight!

I like to read a lot. I also do needlepoint and some other crafts. Since I am on the computer most of the time, I don't do that as much as I did. Friends keep giving me books and I have run out of places to keep them. I am making a baby blanket for my God daughter, who is expecting in Oct. and I am afraid I won't get it done in time. So I guess the answer is that I spend most of my spare time on here.

well, just an advice- try to leave the computer for a while as we all must do, bcause nowadays there are more and more people who spend many hours each day on the computer and lose the point of the life, of the notion out there, and I am scared of it already, I also must try to leave itfor a while! and BTW so you can finish the blanket for your God daughter on time Powered by Phoenix8606

I prefer reading books and studying a foreign language during my spare time. The weather here is so hot that I cannot hang out with my friends outside. The weather definitely make me lazy to go outside. Even when I was a kid, I love reading books. Once my mom cannot see me watching tv or playing with other kids, she knows already that I am in my room and reading some books. I am an introvert type that is why I love to stay inside our house. That will explain why I do not know how to play some sports.I prefer to study more. I love adding informations on my brain because it makes me smart and surpass my other classmates. It makes me stand up in the class and be noticeable by the teachers. As of now, learning a foreign language is one that add to my interest also. I dream of being able to travel in the future and I know that being knowledgeable in different languages will certainly help me.

well, you must leave it for a while and just go out, because staying the whole day long on the computer really makes you a "closer" person and takes you away from the notion. Powered by Phoenix8606

I have a lot of things I did in my spare times. First, I open my laptop then start surfing the net, making some blogs like this. I also watch television or view some movies. I also read my Electronic Bible then listen to some christian songs

as i see you spend all of your spare time online, on the computer, which I thinkis not that good, becaus spending so much time on the computer is really harmful for you and yuo lose your notion about reality too! Powered by Phoenix8606

Hi there. I like this word spare time, since I am lazy by nature. During this time, I just go on watching TV, reading books and get on my PC and search new things. Most preferable for me is watching TV since you just have to sit idle and see what the stupidity is going on the TV. But I still love it. I love to watch movies most of all. If not TV then I go on reading. I like horror books, thrillers, or science fiction books. Else I go on PC and try to learn new things. You know when you stumble on something which is new to you, you get refreshed. I like that experience.

Hi phoenix! I don't really have any hobbies anymore! I do love to decorate and once in awhile make some kind of craft, but I haven't done that in a long time! I'm not very active lately because I have a bad ankle and the docs don't know what it is besides arthritis and can't figure out why it keeps collapsing while I'm walking and walking is my way of excersizing! So, I guess it's being here that is my main hobby! My real hobby is shopping online or shopping! But, that is more of an addiction!lol I love to swim, but I don't live near water and the swimming pools are horrible and crowded! I will be going to visit my Mom in Florida soon so I will get to swim while I'm there! That would be my main hobby here if I had a pool!

I am not good in swimming, I swim like an iron in a pool Powered by Phoenix8606

On my spare time, I get online and look for ways to earn online and do some facebook. Or if i do not go online i prefer to spend time with by girl. Prolly eat out or watch a movie or something. I prefer to do something instead of being stagnant and doing nothing.

yes, it is really much better to do something than just wasting time and doing nothing, but I really think that we all must try to spend less time on the computer because it really affects us ni some negatiev way and I get scared how many people nowadays spend 6-10 hours a day on it, even i do the same Powered by Phoenix8606

For me it is hard to get the spare time. Even i am not so busy but at each time i have some thing to do. May be some fun. But i give my time to my work, study, and mylotting and also to friends. So it is very hard for me to get time to spare.

hell0 Anurag! well, maybe you must really think better on that, because we really need some more spare time in our daily round, because it just makes us feel much ebtter and help us to relax. yes, friends are also good, but sometimes all we need is just to relax for a while to have some more "power"!

yes, relaxing really helps after the depressed day at work, but for me going out with the friends affects me much better, becauseI have a lot of fun with them and it is really funny to be with people like my friends, who know how to make me feel better, no matter how tired I am Powered by Phoenix8606
