I thought this might be an interesting topic that everyone could easily answer (since obviously everyone who could be reading this has an internet connection and a browser). For myself over the last few years the first thing i almost always do has been check my college email account, followed closely by a pogo.com game or three.

The first thing I do is check all my e-mail accounts. Then, I go to Iwon.com and browse around until I get 100 "entries" and check the weather and sports. If I have any surveys to take, I take those at that time. Finally, after I have done everything I needed to do, I go to my forum sites, like Mylot. Then, I spend as much time as I can there.

Iwon.com? I haven't heard of that before, is it some sort of raffling site maybe? I just might have to check that out.

Alright. Fine fine. I admit it... A while back a set my homepage to the wonderful site of MySpace. It -was- addicting at one point. Seeing as I have failed to alter my homepage, the MySpace logo taunts me into signing on and wading through a bunch of e-mails and crap that I would have rather ignored. After that, I usually open my real e-mail account via Microsoft Office outlook, as well as sign on to my various MUD accounts. If -still- bored, I point my webbrowser to Addictinggames.com and muddle through a list of pointless, but entertaining, games for a few hours. Such an exciting life I lead, no? Well, -you- were the one that asked. ;) Bye for now.

If I haven't been on all day I check my email while I open another browser, Opera, and check my email on MySpace. I have a few friends that are in Iraq and that's how we keep in touch. After all the business is taken care of I hit myLot then play a few online PRG games. Gosh, I am such a geek.

Considering it wasn't until recently that I started really opening my browser, I really can't say anymore. Used to be that I'd open up to hotmail first, then go to something like pogo or facebook. Occasionally I'll go on myspace, but it's not that big a thing for me anymore. If I want to talk to someone, they're usually on one of my messengers.

The first thing i do as soon as i open the internet browser is that i check my emails without fail. I have 3 email id's for various purposes and check the new mails in each of them and reply to the new mails if needed. After that now, i am visiting mylot these days.

That is to check my emails. Whenever I open up my browser means that I'm bored, so, I'd check my email first to see if any mails interest me.
