going without smartphone & computer post-work for 30 days, and am mostly wondering... so, what do my fellow solo-dwellers DO in the evenings, if not internet-related? have you done this before/how did you stick with it?

i'm at a computer at work all day, and would like to spend 30 days without texting or the internets after 6pm, for a month, just to remember how it feels. i realize many people do this as a matter of course/out of necessity/otherwise, but trust that this would be a huge change to my evening routines.
rules of engagement so far: tv is ok (owned/rented/borrowed dvds), plans-related telephone calls ok, computer art (messing around with offline programs) is ok.
i'm busy most evenings with a sport i'm involved in, but i am really curious what other bachelor solo-living folks DO in the evenings! i am trying to compile a huge list of things to fill up my time (read magazines, dinner with pals, dates, write hand-written letters to folks, make art, go see music, elaborate meals, etc.) to make sure i see this 30-days through to the end.
if you have done this before, how did you stick with it?
