When I learned how to use the computer and when I finally learned how to use the internet, I admit I got addicted to it – to internet. And then it became my life, really. Unlike, probably, my (former) classmates and people I know in real life who used/use the internet only for school, or work, or now since it’s famous – facebook, I discovered I can learn or do a lot of things in the internet. Of course, those people may have learned other things in the internet as well. I guess the only difference is, they have their real lives while I honestly had put all my attention to online stuff – like watching anime, blogging, posting to forums, etc. I told you, I really did get addicted.
I do think that there are some cases where a student abandoned his/her schooling because he got addicted to playing computer/online games. That kinda happened to me too. Tho, not video games But just my online life in general. To be honest, of course I regret a lot of things. And I really wish I finished college.
I think the only good that happened to me in my online life is (aside from meeting my fiance and some awesome online friends) – learning html and web design. Maybe if not for this, my whole life would have been really wasted. It started as curiosity only then it became a hobby then one day, after all my failures in life, I decided to pursue a career in freelance web design. Then after a while, I started doing other stuff to earn money online.
Fast forward to now, my life now centers around my real life, living with boyfriend, friends, family and yes earning money online. If you ever want to try earning money online, there a lot of ways. Of course personally, I prefer selling WordPress themes but you can also earn by blogging. If you want to, you can read more about how to make money through blogging.
