Internet and our life

I have not been online for a long time... ok it was been a little over a week but for a gamer like me it's a life-time, once we get used to the concept of having all the information on the web and online-friends at our fingertips and suddenly lose that connection its like going back to the dark ages, our real life daily routine starts to weight more on our shoulders.

Each person has its own reasons for being online doesn't matter if you are in the gaming community or not, whether you like to search/download new music, learn some new trait, reading world news or just login to your game of choice and play to gain a ego-boost, kill time, to be with your gaming friends or as an escapade from our boring life... to each its own.

For me life has become tedious, i miss the long conversations over Ventrilo with my guild mates while we played or with my friends over Skype, doesn't matter if it was gaming related or not it has become part of my social life.

Most people get attached to something in their life they can't live without, for some its sports, for others is the TV, for teens now-a-days it's a cellphone, i guess for me it's a decent internet connection at home.

Ventrilo... oh the memories. Gave up with the whole MMO scene after my first serious girlfriend, never went back xD takes up too much time, man.

God, being online is my life! I hate to say it, but i think i've learned more life lessons on the internet than i have from school!

My last serious girlfrind got me into the whole MMO thing again. Now that i'm single again I moslty just go out on clubs where i find loose women for casual sex. Boring stuff like that.

True. I can't live without internet.

I totally agree, internet is strongly addictive and some of us are a walking (well... sitting) proof of that.

I can't say I exactly agree with every of your words. I'm also using Internet on daily basis, it's my routine, but after all - I can live without it. I haven't played any online games in months, I kinda hate using social sites and services to get in contact with my friends - what's the point of using a text chat to conduct an hour-long talk that would normally take 5 min when facing each other? Of course, you can use VOIPs like Skype or even webcams, but my friends (and me myself) aren't accustomed to such novelties. World news on the Internet? I can easily live without it. I mainly use Internet nowadays as a great source of university knowledge and a tool when I work. Still, I'm not addicted... and I'm actually glad for this.

It depends on each person's interests and such, I myself can't find much interest in anything not computer related so I understand your pain!
