Part 2 - Get off the web

  1. Talk
  2. Get off the Web
  3. Get Healthier
  4. Leave the House
  5. Join some Clubs
  6. Say Yes
  7. Spoil Myself

Now I know some of you are worried about this one…

After all, how can I produce works of genius and keep you entertained if I’m not on the web? How will you cope without me?

Well, there are two possible options. Firstly you can come to my house and watch me perform card tricks whilst reciting Shakespearean soliloquies or I can keep using the web. As I really don’t want you in my house, and my sleight of hand isn’t as strong as it used to be, I’m favouring the second option instead.

So rather than eliminate the web from my life, like a maid with a feather duster, I’m simply adapting my lifestyle.

Presently my life follows a remarkably dull pattern like a work of unimaginative modern art. I wake up, surf the net, go to work, come home, read some blogs, watch most haunted, stumble the Internet and go to bed.

There are of course such essentials as eating, showering and beating up my boyfriend inter spliced into the routine, but one major element (apart from masturbation) takes up most of my day and it is this sheer amount of web use that I want to eliminate – not ban use of the web itself as an Amish man may do after discovering cable porn.

My aim is to limit my surfing 30 minutes a day. This means 30 minutes of actual surfing not including page loading time, as measured by Time Tracker.

I hope this will encourage (force) me to discover more interesting and useful things to fill my time with such as reading, talking to my boyfriend, or maybe, Heaven forbid, even venturing outside.

As usual I will keep you posted, probably in much shorter entries, and I will visit your blogs from time to time but as my Internet will be unplugged for 23 Hours and 30 minutes every day that may be harder than you imagine.

It is a challenge I am excited to be taking part in. But God only knows what I will do if I need to order pizza…

As much as I appreciate that with your boyfriend being so bored at work the highlight of his day is to come home and get beaten up by you, I'm sure that your fans will miss you if you spend more time on that.

Wait! I have a great idea! Why don't you video it? Then you'll still have something to share with us!

Damn if this blog doesn't get better and better all the time!
