Well yes, I did had a day from from mylot. I was online here yesterday but only got to respond to 1 or 2 discussions I think. I was online my entire shift at work but I said I wish to have a day off from mylot and so I did. I may have been online, but I didn't respond to any discussions or even read interesting topics. It was weird at first not being able to write anything since I was online here and responding to discussions almost all the time since April, that was the time I went back full time here. I know i have lost a few cents from yesterday, but I guess I needed that as well. I mean after the bad incident that happened to me last week and the guilt and the stress and relief afterwards was all too much for me. And now, I'm back to work.. For all those everyday online members in mylot, did you ever tried to take a day off? How did that make you feel? Were you energize afterwards or have you lost your interest with that one day off?

There are days, when I don't spend any time on mylot. Usually, I do enjoy spending some time on mylot, but there are still days, when I don't get a chance to, or just need a break from mylot, or something to that effect.

I understand. Too much of something is already not good. That goes as well with mylot. Too much of being online here is already not good for you will already forget those things or those people who wish to enjoy the day with you. I enjoy mylot more than anything else for now and taking a day off made me realize that things needs to be balanced to enjoy life and so I won't feel that I am already full with mylot. I don't wish for that to happen, so I will be taking things to minimum now.

In the earlier account I have, I used to present most times in the mylot. And only for one week I would be absent in a row. Sometimes it get bored to present if we are present for long time.

What happened to your other account then? I am not feeling bored yet as of now, but I am afraid if that will happen in the long run, that is why taking day offs here is somewhat important to me now.

I just deleted it some months before and now back again as I like this site much. It is like running out of thoughts when we are spending most times here.

Oh, that was a waste deleting your other account. Anyway, what's good news is you are back here in mylot. Hopefully you will not delete your new account this time even if you don't log in here regularly.

Sometime i take 1-2 days off of mylot too, it may cause my mood is not good or i have no idea with discussions that i read. I think it is good for us going out of mylot, we can get more information and create more interesting topics for discussing when be back.

You have a point. After the break we really do come back here with loads of interesting topics to share with others. I may be taking breaks more often now and just jot down the topics I come up with during those breaks. Thanks for sharing

Ya. Come up with the new topics now, Gaiza. You already took break time of mylot...

I don't really start new discussions even before. I just start when ever there is an interesting topic that comes in my mind or there is something I want to share. I am more into responding to discussions, I don't know why but I am enjoying reading and responding to other's discussions.

Hi gaiza! If I am at home then I'm here, If offline takes over then I am away and don't give much thought to the discussions here but I do think of my friends. Last year I was away a lot and each time that I got back there were so many notifiers that I am still trying to catch up even now! I get stuck here when I am at the computer. I am trying to update my page on another site but each time I get started something distracts me and pulls me back here so I guess that it will have to wait until one day next week to get it finished

It sure will be finish by a week after next week . You are always here and I believe you know most of the members who are active here. I can feel that you really love mylot and no matter how busy you are with other things, your heart will always bring you back to mylot

Gosh is it that obvious? Yes I get to know many of the regular Lotters here because I read a lot and I have no problem barging in and joining their topics - or even into their responses if I have something to add

I'm a newbie and I already had 2 day offs. I easily get bored with things even those stuffs that I really like and passionate about. I think it's cool to me because it's easier that way because I don't want to force myself to enjoy or do things that I don't appreciate at the moment. Although, I visited the site, I didn't post or responded to anything at all. There are no discussions that interests me anyway so I don't feel the need to participate because my comments would be of no use to the person who posted it too. There are just days and times that even the things that's loveliest in my eyes turns dull and not appealing at all. We need to take a rest from things we do routinely anyway, and just go back with more stories to tell, good experiences and lesson learned. At least by those days we've had day off, we're able to collect topics and ideas that would or might concern others too. :D

Gratz on your 100th post Anyway, you are right, we need to take a rest from the things we do routinely for us to not to feel mylot is already too much for us. I believe that there are really some posts that does not interest us all, and even if there are, we still find some days that we are too lazy to respond. Those lazy days are worth the day offs. We need that to be recharged and get our minds back to work.

Thanks! :D I couldn't agree more to you and I'm a moody lazy bum too more often than not, so I really have to have day offs. :D

Yeah at times I feel that mylot can be a little overwhelming and then I take a day or a couple off. Usually I feel refreshed afterwards to get back to discussions. I think that we work hard at mylot and it can take a lot of time when we want to be very productive. So that in itself can drain us physically and emotionally. So it's good to take a break. We have to take a break from a lot of things in our life.

Exactly, I agree that things can sometime drain us physically and emotionally including mylot so it really is and was a good idea to take a break even for just one day. Too much of something is really bad enough for ourselves. I feel refreshed now after yesterday's break

Yeah everything in moderation. I really like mylot. But to get a lot accomplished here it can be draining. So at times I can start to tell when I need a to take a break. Then afterwards I feel refreshed.

Even the best websites and places, we tend to grow rather tired of them if we visit them each and every day. MyLot is really no exception to this very prominent rule to say the very least. There have been times where the discussions just did not catch my interest. That is no fault of the people who started them, really, but I was in a selective mood. I make a habit of taking one to two days off in a week from myLot, to feel refreshed and rather recharged. Much like with everything, we need a little break from each other, not to grow tiring and rather frustrated with pretty much anything. I think that my interest has never really weakened after some time off. If nothing else, it is much stronger and I'm ready to go.

Yes, it really is very important to take breaks from everything we do. If we don't wish to get bored here and if we don't wish to get tired of our everyday activity here, those breaks will really be needed.

Just like missing it for a half a day when mylot had a runtime error. Yes, I too am missing mylot, now that I am so attached to it. I am trying to be as active here as much as possible, not because I wanted to earn more, but because I am really enjoying it. Taking a break from something helps us not to feel bored here. I mylot in the office and at home after work. I only don't come online here in the morning because that is the only time I rest my eyes from facing the computer all the time.

Hi gaiza.. That happens to me too. I'm not a regular poster here in mylot. I don't post a lot. Everyday, I reply to 3-4 discussions only. I don't know. Maybe I'm just too lazy or I'm not as opinionated as the others. Haha!

You shouldn't feel lazy because there are so many discussions here in mylot that I am sure you have something to say. You will surely enjoy your stay here if you don't look at the numbers beside your name and if you don't look at the earnings you get each day. You will be surprise one day that you have already reached your payout, that's what I did and it sure does help me keep on coming back here.

Just had a crazy day with mylot last week but all is well now, I moved on with that, thanks to our fellow mylot member who were so very kind to make me feel better I actually did spend my day with my online game since I haven't played it for a few days already because I was so preoccupied with mylot. I had a little fun, but being here in mylot makes me enjoy my time more. I missed you here, I wish I could get to see you more often .

Well, i just had at least 5 days off from Mylot, since April 30. I have to be hospitalized , after my operation. And now, i feel energized and excited getting here again.

It's good to know you're feeling better now after being hospitalized. Mind if I ask what happened? That 5 day off made you miss mylot, I suppose

I had a gynecological surgery. Yes, i indeed miss Mylot. Hopefully too i can start some discussions by next week. I just don't want to stress my brain yet, so i am leaving it until next week.

I must be obsessed with this site. I went a bit crazy last week when myLot was down for half a day and I can't access the site during my regular time here. I am here every day, sometimes even several times a day. I am not always posting much when I'm here, sometimes I just read and read and read whatever posts that interest me. Perhaps one day if nothing seems to interest me here anymore, then I'll take a day off from myLot.

But make sure to come back after your break . Reading alone can make your enjoy your stay here. There is really nothing wrong with that. But, if you respond or start discussion while your online, you can really help mylot more. Whatever your preference are, just enjoy your obsessiveness and take things to it's minimum for too much is already not good

You're right, too much of anything is not good. Even too much of something good, such as water, can lead to disaster. Everything needs balance to work best.

I had a month long vacation from mylot. It was a forced vacation due to offline project. I really missed mylot- but sometimes we need to have a break and give way to a more important matters. Anyway,I hope you were able to get back the excitement once again...

The excitement never stopped... It's good you have come back with that excitement as well. Yes, vacations are really important for us to also see what lies outside of mylot.

Sometimes I don't have the time to come up every single day. There was one time when I was working all the shifts a day (plus I had a French lesson, too, one day) and once I went to our resort house in the other part of the country and we don't have internet there.

I would say i almost had two days off every week and that's Saturday and Sunday. I usually do mylot in my office,anyway,watching movies sometime or hanging out with my friend would be another way to kill time.lol,anyway,just can not leave my laptop.

I usually do mylot in the office as well, but when I get home and see the email notifications from mylot, I just can't help it but go online again here . I have work even on a sunday so it is not an excuse for me to be off here, but yesterday was just different. I think I really needed that break

I was last on mylot 5 years ago. So, I took five years off. Well now, I am back and I did not realize how much of a mistake that was. A day or two, maybe even a week away from mylot is not a big stretch for me. Imagine 5 years. I know people are not always able to be on mylot everyday, and some things just require more attention, depending on the person and his or her situation. I used to be an everyday mylotter 5 years ago until my life and attitude about mylot changed. I don't see anything wrong with mylot; I just had to explore other aspects of my life and it seemed to take me away . Now, I am planning to post as often as possible.

I have been here for 3 years only but I was never really as active as I am now. I am too lazy before and only gets to post a few responses a day or every other day. I don't really come here everyday before. I was so attached to some other things when I started here and mylot was never a priority when I am online. But I admire you, 5 years and still you have remembered to come back here. Mylot may really have given you something to remember when you first came here for you to find her once again in your heart after 5 long years. Let me Welcome you back here with a big hug . Welcome back
