Leave me an anonymous comment pouring your heart out. Say anything. Tell me your stories, your secrets, those things no one ever asks but you wish to tell. Tell me about your love, your hate, your indifference, your joy. Tell me what's inside of you when you're reading through these entries on your friends list, and tell me why you continue to come back here. Tell me anything. Tell me what you really think of me or yourself. Anything you like.

Post anonymously. Speak honestly. Post as many times as you like ♥

Ah yes, I got your back there. @_@ My dad used to ask me what is it on the internet that I keep wasting my time on. It got to the point where I spent every waking hour in front of the computer, browsing, playing online games (Ragnarok, at that time. Stupid addiction indeed), or whatever it was that I liked to do. It was so bad that my dad threatened to ban my computer, and when I didn't listen, he really did. He took away my monitor for several days. Back then I didn't have a laptop so taking away my monitor would mean no computer for me, at all. I suppose if you really want to stop you should look for other things to do, other things you're comfortable with doing, to distract yourself from always using it. Like reading, for example, which is kind of more productive than just spending time on the internet? Ask your mom to help you with it, if you're really concerned about it. If my dad hadn't taken away my monitor and banned me from using the computer for several days I think I wouldn't have been able to stop...

As for your parents... my parents are like that, too. If they know that I have an LJ and that I'm pretty open about my life, they'll freak. I'm not exactly sure how to get around this, either. I know it's not nice to hide people who are important to you and it's really a dilemma. I'm not going to suggest this, but this is what I do with my parents. I tell them that I have a "friend from school", and when they ask for the friend's name, I just tell them what their names are. When they're ready (if they'll ever get ready...) I'll probably tell them the truth. @_@ It IS technically lying so I wouldn't suggest doing it, but... well.

Listening to you, I'm getting the impression that your parents are pretty traditional parents. Yeahhh, it's very frustrating when they just dismiss your opinion, especially when the reasons are "we know better than you" or "you're still too young". Maybe the next time they impose their opinions to you, you can ask them why and have a discussion or debate or the like. It usually ends with a fight every time I do that, but if you're clear-headed and you really want them to listen to you, it probably won't. Or you could pull the whole "whatever my opinion is my opinion and that is final" thing on them, because really, your opinion IS yours and that is final! /brick'd

I'm sorry I'm not much help. But good luck! ♥

Haha, yeah, my parents are pretty traditional. But they do try to be as understanding as possible. I've kinda given up the debate because they are kinda immature about it and stop talking. But for the most part they respect my beliefs to an extent (at least they haven't refused to let me go over to my friend's houses and such)

Haha, I totally pull that friend from school thing too. Or "she/he is the friend/family member of another one of my friends from school that you have never met and we met each other on the internet." I think my mom will start to wonder "why the hell does my friend have so many friends I never met" though haha

Sadly, my parents CAN'T take away the computer from me unless they want me to fail school. I have so much schoolwork that I can't possibly finish it in school and even in school I can still mess around with computers and the internet. The best thing they can do probably is to monitor me but they are always too busy to do that or fall asleep while watching. The only way I think I can overcome this is probably determination and self-discipline which is really hard P:

That's pretty sweet of them, to try to be as understanding as possible :) I'm glad that they at least respect your beliefs to a certain extent. That's quite something because not all parents do that.

Really? Oh wow, does she believe you? But at least you've been honest about the having friends part. :)

Ohhh. You're taking the IB, yes? That makes the whole no computer thing impossible because you really need it. Essays, research and stuff. Yeah, I've been there. @_@ Okay, let's see... how about turning off the internet immediately after you finish using it? Or use the whole reward system, I suppose. Like... "do two hours of work and I'll get 15 minutes of browsing" and actually stick to it. XD
