The internet fails to hold the entertainment value it once had for me. Also, the conversations I used to have online have tapered off, nearing nonextistance really. I just get painfully bored within minutes of sitting at my computer these days, the same kind of bored I feel within minutes of turning on the television. It never used to be this way. Unlike television, however, I’m really missing that entertained feeling the net used to give me. I miss the friendships I had. I guess I’ve changed, and this has been gradual, but I’ve really seriously noticed it the past few months.

I guess my priorities have changed, but they have yet to move on to something that can replace what the net was for me. Maybe I need to join clubs or something. Take night courses. Get involved in *gasp* my community. Become a big sister or a girl guide leader or something.

Someday when I have kids I’ll miss having nothing to do. Maybe.

    I can totally relate. I spent months away from the computer now. I moved into this apartment and didn’t even hook up internet access for three or four months. It’s just not what it used to be. Lately I’ve found a few friends online that have similiar interests as me. I also have a slew of friends and a boyfriend that don’t go online either.

      I have to wonder if it’s the nature of the net changing, or if it’s me. Probably a combination of the two…

    I’ve felt this at times, too. I miss chatting on Warped IRC with all of my old online friends. I miss Warped Radio, too, to listen to you spin tunes and play for us. But those things are gone, and I don’t know where to find replacements for them, so those relationships have slacked.
