    that I have a very sad life.

    Its my first friday off in a very long time and what am I doing with my time?
    Hanging out on forums and constantly checking my email.

    I don't think I know how to relax and not work anymore... arghhh...could have gone out with friends, played computer games, worked on model collection...nope.

    I have all this free time and I feel restless.

    Anyone else feel that way?

    Yes... although it's Sat. morning here in London, it should be time off for me. But I'm working and dipping into here periodically. Still, shoe shopping is going to be the main leisure highlight this weekend.

    The thing about friends as you get older is that they have their own interests as well, including being settled in their relationships. You can't just call up your mates like when you were 17 and say 'whatcha up to?' any more. Meeting up now takes planning, schedules, discussions, compromises.

    Sure- I think a lot of us do. Do yourself a favor. Shut down the computer and go out.

    and that is a sad thing in itself. i guess, that is the down-side of "growing up".

    So true. But it never hurts to go make new friends. I've been doing that a lot lately. There are a lot more single, fun people out there than you think.

    Do it. They probably still love you.

    Just as a side note- I think a lot of people suffer from internet "addiction". After all, it's easier to type an e-mail, post, etc....rather than actually meet people. Let's not forget that one of the reasons we like the internet so much - meeting the people we talk to. I've met several MR members including scem0, my current squeeze. I hope to meet more- especially our Canadian friends. :)

    As I'm now sixty should I not expect things to have gone full circle? There seems no spontaneity even now.

    Hey sounds like everyday of my life without school. If there's no school, I'm the biggest bum. I really don't do anything, so don't feel bad, or atleast don't feel like you're the only one. There's always worse.
