That's cool. I'm kinda trying to live without the internets. It's just too boring for me, too meaningless. Games I already got rid of, and now I've lost hope with online socializing as well. I miss my friends though, like you.
Part of it is that my apartment's internet is just too slow, I guess. I can't really watch YouTube very easily, which would be something cool to do. Honestly though I just don't even think about the computer most days. I work, I drink, I cry, I get into trouble...
I'm trying to have a life that is enough for me. Nothing internetsy will help me do that. I don't have the energy for it. I will only go on the internets to check my messages from my true family like you. Otherwise it has no pull for me. I have enough "real life" options to be desperate, so I don't have to fish for online interaction like I used to. Maybe I'll fall back. We'll c.
Nah. I don't think I can ever seek out interactions on the internet like I used to. I have little interest in movies, TV, or internets. I am damn proud of my participation on TL and this forum, and look back with admiration and awe of course. But I have so many other interests, and interest in getting different interests... I don't see myself sitting around spending all day on the internet anymore. I have a smart phone though. People could google chat me or something. The reality is, as many cool people as I met on the internet, almost all of them pretty much I had to bug when I was bored or lonely, and force them to talk to me.
Once I stepped out here, I found out that I guess I really had few friends at all. Nobody can be bothered to exchange text with me. Nobody is really interested in a dialogue with me. I do much better in the real world, where friends act like friends, and wanna hang out and do random shit together. I almost can't find that even with my nearly two decades of internet friends.
I mean look at this forum. It's pathetic. Nobody wants to say shit with me.
