How many hours do you spend on the computer a week

Post by Mediocre » Fri Feb 06, 2009 5:13 pm

I saw the TV thread, thought this one would be interesting also.

I work on the computer all day (8 hours) 5 days a week

I play World of Warcraft so thats another 3-4 hours a night after work

Weekends I watch movies on my comp, surf the web... ect.. and play WoW...

All in all, I'd say about 60+ hours on computers in a week... Oh joy the world we live in now.

Um..I too work on a computer, so that's about 10 hours a day at work 5 days a week (it's the busy season right now, so I'm on overtime)...then i go home were i listen to music for the rest of the night, but sometimes play starcraft. So I'd say my average daily time on a computer is right around 11 hours a day.

This computer, about 8 hours a day, Monday through Friday; roughly 16 - 18 hours a day on Weekends.
So, about 72 hours a week, on THIS computer.

Now, almost all of my schoolwork is done on computers. About 4 hours per day, 5 days a week, adding another 20 or so hours.

Grand total: 92 - 96 hours per week.
Roughly between 55% and 57% of my life on a weekly basis.

Sleeping 6 to 8 hours per day, usually 8...
That's about 52 - 56 hours per week.



Meaning I spend between 79% and 85% of my hours awake each week on a computer.

Is it not amazing I have real friends?

A lot. But not too much in my opinion.

Let's see...

8 hours at work x 5 days = 40 hours
At least 10 hours a week outside of work...

Minimum of 50 hours a week. 30% of my total life, 40% of my waking hours.

Now that I think of it, that's really kind of sad.

Lots. :mrgreen: Seriously, in the winter (when DQ is closed and thus I have no job) I will spend just about every waking hour either on the computer or playing video games.

Couple hours a day. I wish there was more to do around here so it could be much less. I should pick up an outdoors hobby like fishing or something, that'd be a better way to waste time :P
