I strongly believe that the internet and when I'm not on the internet, tv are major distractions in my life. So much so that they consume my life when I'm not at work. Since I've lost touch with my friends and I'm too afraid (or whatever it is) to reconnect with them, I just stay inside and do nothing. I obviously want to fix this and I feel like I must eliminate the biggest time wasters. Before I call my pals, I think it may be best if I try to become more interesting and outgoing. I don't want to call them up and tell them that I've basically done nothing since the last 5 years I've spoken to them. I really haven't done anything. All I do is stay inside and watch porn and tv.
So I need to go out and experience things. Go to places, talk to people, take risks, become spontaneous, whatever. I got to force myself out of my comfort zone which I hope will be easier when I have nothing to distract me. It's either, stay inside and stare at walls or go out and find entertainment. I'll attempt to talk to strangers and try to ask out a female for the first time in my life.
Then after I've gained some confidence, I'll call my friends and try to get a social life.
I think I will use meetup.com (By using internet at the library), to find people who share similar interests as me. I'll also go to attractions in my state and do some hobbies.
Have any of you gone without tv and internet? Were you more productive? How hard was it to go without them?
I have no idea what the point of this topic was. I just had to post my thoughts to free my mind.
