10 signs that show you're spending too much time in front of your computer

You know you're spending too much time in front of your computer when:

1.- you suddenly find yourself with your mouth open. 

2.- Your right hand (if you're right-handed) starts getting numb due to the use of the mouse or touch pad.

3.- There are too many glasses, cups and napkins on the table next to you.

4.- Or you go to the kitchen to make some tea and realize you still haven't done the dishes.

5.- You shuffle your song playlist for background noise and realize you've listened to some of the songs already.

6.- You notice you've added like 20 pins on Pinterest or 20 items in your virtual wishlist.

7.- Your desktop has 2 or 3 new folders with pics and docs for later blog posts.

8.- You start browsing blogs faster because you know you've wasted enough time already and this makes you feel less guilty (or like you're saving time).

9.- You come to the conclusion that it's too late to run on the treadmill or do something profitable.

10.- You feel like sh*t because you've failed to check off items in your to-do list.

Ok, I'm off to study now!
Hope you're making the most of your time ;). 

And hey! Before you turn off your computer, go check Chantilly's blog; I'm guest posting there today! ;p

# 5, 8 & 9, 10 that's me - I think it's more like being online than on the computer itself - the internet is quite a time killer. I suppose if one to waste time, it might as well be on the computer instead of doing something destructive.

hope you have a sweet day.

Hehe...too funny! One that makes my list of I spend too much time on the internet is - my cats start biting me because they aren't getting attention OR my other half gets whiny because he isn't getting any attention either :p

Funny , but absolutely true. I'm currently on laptop detoxification, so I'm trying to use it only after studying & do other thing on my to-do list. It have worked for three days now.
