hi guys. i apologize if i haven't responded to some of your comments on my other discussions. the reason behind that is because i don't have an internet connection for 2 days . but don't worry, i'll respond to them one at a time. so while i don't have an interne connection all i did was taking care of my baby and do some household chores. how about you guys, what are the things that you do if you don't have an internet connection?

For me, I'd write or draw, maybe play the piano or sing karaoke:) It not only gives the individual a feeling of happiness, there's also a realization that we can spend time on doing things that can develop our talent. Doing chores is also a good start on developing maturity within the inner self :) I may not like doing it, but I'm trying my best.

thanks for the reply, rhane7315! 'laziness' can sometimes be a burden when we want to start a new hobby. you like drawing, and i can tell that you are a good artist! maybe you can spend your pastimes drawing 'doodles' or scribbles on a small notebook whenever you are on the go. :)

I'm an avid reader, so I would say run down to the local library and stock up on some reading material. It can totally be sleazy stuff too, sometimes I find those the most entertaining! I'm also really art & craftsy so I'll take the time to put on some music and start a project I've been thinking about. However, the thing I probably love to do the most is to blast music and dance around! Because seriously, who doesn't love dancing right? :)

I used to live in the library when I didn't have a computer lol. That eased down a lot after I got my computer though. I borrow movies from my library as well as books.

Hi rhane! It really sucks when there's no internet connection. I'm used to have internet connection at home 24/7 and at the office. So when there's no internet connection, I feel like I'm getting impatient for something. I try to watch tv when I don't have internet but I can't focus on what I'm watching. ^^ I try to play games in the computer but I get tired and bored fast. Cleaning my room and arranging things can temporarily take my mind off the internet, though. And also playing with my niece and nephew as well as with our pet dog and rabbit. ^^

Hi rhane, If we don't have internet connection I watch dvd movies or watch cable news or programs. I sometimes read books and listen to music. I think I am more productive when I don't use the internet...LOL! I mean, I could do more house chores, I am able to do things I don't like doing (hahaha!) such doing the laundry, cleaning the toilet... the list are endless.

I read, watch tv, play games on my iPod, or find some offline activity to do on the computer. Oh, and I watch movies or listen to music. It's horrible that all of these things except for reading has to do with electronics lol. I also walk around too if I don't have anything else to do.

We had our computer crash last week, and I got a lot of housework and paperwork done. It was surprising. i guess I spend too much time on the computer.

I am a regular internet user and if it is not available for some time I feel bad. However I use internet for some limited hours every day and if I do not see the connection working, I use my time doing other household activity or reading news paper.

sometimes i feel relieved when my internet connection is down,,,, i see that there is another world beside the internet and i realy dare to say that i like it... all the things which had less priority than the internet become major like, for ex, gardening, watching movies, going out or just closing my eyes- a thing which is difficult to do while you surf the internet. no doubt about it- internet is addictive and you feel it only when you don't have it...

I have observed that when I don't have internet connection my computer is not very useful cause most of my work is related to internet. So, this is the time when I read books, listen to music, watch movies or may be sometimes even sit quietly and relax :). In short I must say when the connection is down, I find some time for myself :P

Best thing to I do when there is no internet connection in home is to read books, watch some TV, do some household work and play some outdoor sports

I'd watch movies and series that I downloaded from the Internet. Speaking of which, I didn't have a connection these past few days so I was able to watch the whole season 6 of bones and season 2 of dexter. It was a good way to relieve the frustration from not having a connection.
