when the internet is your only excuse for a social life

internet, life online, world wide web, tips + tricks
I guess this happens to a lot of stay-at-home mums who really struggle to maintain an active social life while keeping watch of their little ones 24/7! Hardly possible if you’d ask me, how in heaven’s name can you  be in two places at one time late at night when you are dutifully tacking your little ones safely to bed and your single friends {or some lucky mummy friends, even} are enjoying the weekend in some plush pub or bonding over a film you have all been planning to see? In fact, for most of us, the only semblance of social life we have is the ones we keep online, like Facebook, Twitter or Google+. It is by far the most convenient in our most demanding schedules, after all.
And for our typical Friday night, instead of being spent in a movie theater, a salon or a pub, it is often spent online keeping in touch with our friends through the exchanges of tweets or browsing through each other’s status updates. And we cannot just afford to spend these precious time in front of the computer as we please, mind you, this is usually done when the little one is sleeping soundly in bed, which is the only moment mum really gets to have time for herself.
We have spent a considerable amount of time online, in fact, that I have listed a number of interesting things to do online to pass the time and I might just have to add in a bit more. Check out my new list of a few more things you might be interested to do while online, aside from spending your time to play bingo free downloads and watch your favorite Korean telenovela on youtube:
  • Look for alternative ways to earn online. The world wide web is not only a gold mine of information, it has also evolved to be an alternative source in looking for more ways to augment the family income. You can try out those paid-to-click sites, or those income-opportunities sites that require just a little amount of investment. Just be careful, though, to ask around for feedback before signing up for any of these sites. I have been a victim of these scam once, it was a good thing Paypal was good enough to return the money I invested.
  • Be abreast with current events by reading news online. If you continuously get to miss the evening news cast on the tellie because your little man would demand the Disney Channel instead, it is a good opportunity to catch up what’s going on with the world by doing a once-over of the networks’ website. It pays to be updated with what is going on outside, especially when you hardly have the time to go out yourself. And who knows you might just stumble into a good news, like a big sale announcement in your favorite shop or a scoop about your favorite actors and actresses! 😉
  • Brush up on your English grammar and vocabulary. I don’t know about you, but I sure get a kick when I read the dictionary when I was younger, the more new words I learn the happier I become. Learning does not have to stop, especially now that I am a mother and am aspiring to teach my little one at home, too, and I can conveniently do that online, too!

I know my list can be quite lame and am sure you can think of more fun and exciting things to do like playing bingo games online. Do drop a comment if you have discovered another exciting new site, right? I would love to check it out! 🙂
