    Doing a whole lot more studying !!! And EXAXTLY the reason I waited 3 yrs. to purchase one... while all my coworkers and friends were "online" and having a good-ol' time, my nose was buried in the books. I STILL didn't have a computer ! I wanted one soooooooo badly, but was determined not to get one until I was on my last academic course. I tuffed it out. Glad I did.. with a BB THIS great, it would have taken me 3 months to finish a chapter ! Last Christmas, a friend/coworker announced to us what her 4 yr. old grandson wanted from Santa...
    a "pooter and a "tooter" !!!

    Got my pooter now, and I guess when I pass the NCLEX and hit the unit floors, I'll be wanting that tooter ! :chuckle

    Gosh, I don't even know...I'd probably be studying for an Abnormal Psychology test or something :chuckle

    ...but thanks to the internet (and I guess some life events too ) I started researching Nursing and made a wonderful choice...and later met all of you wonderful souls Now there's no getting rid of me.

    I will get that psych degree eventually someday... :uhoh21: Ok, it may take more than one :chuckle But then I'll get paid to pick at all your brain's...muuuhaaahahaaa

    I don't even remember I've had a computer for the past 8 yrs......

    Let's see.... Yup! I agree I would probably be cleaning my house or reading a trashy romance manual!
    What did I do B.C.? (before computer)

    I dunno. The house was probably cleaner, and I read more books.

    Life before my computer is a total blurrrrrrr! I must have done something...I've often wondered if I ever got a divorce, who would get the computer??? My husband bought it...for the family! Since I use it more than he ever does, IT'LL BE MINE, MINE, MINE and that's all I want! I Love my puter and all my friends in this box! :kiss

    my house would be imaculate,the dog would be brushed everyday, fresh sheets on th ebed every other day. all laundry would be washed, dried and ironed the same day.. there would always be hot meals on the table, and fresh cake or cookies in the kitchen...i would be doing volunteer work every day, would have read all of oprah's book club books...and i would've won the nobel prize...

    Getting more sleep - that's what tends to get shortchanged when I get online - "Oh, I'll read just one more thread before I go to sleep"
