    I'm in my mind about something(think about something)Is it true?

    Hi Everyone
    I have some questions and hope to get your answers.
    1. If I use "I'm in my mind about something" to describe that "I think about something" , whether it's true or not?
    2. For example: my Internet is disconnected. It's whether I can describe that " My connection goes to death". I want everybody to imagine about it. Is it true?
    I cordially appreciate any answers from you. Thanks

    Your use of words are not incorrect. There is nothing wrong with the innovative use of words. Your phrases are colorful.
    When I read the phrase "I'm in my mind about something," an image popped in my head. I am sitting on my own brain in the classical Rodan thinker pose.
    Personally, when my Internet goes out, I freak. "My connection goes to death," brought up the image of the Grim Reaper stabbing my computer to death with a sword.
    I would make sure not to go overboard with the use of colorful, but unusual phrases so that others do think it was intentional and not because of language barriers.

    I am not too sure about the first sentence...
    There are plenty of experessions which are in use to express similar thoughts, ex.
    I am thinking..
    I am pondering...
    There is something on my mind.
    It dawned on me (sudden rememberance of something)
    It clicked me.. etc etc

    For the sencond sentence, for computers "death" is commonly used..
    My computer is dead.
    My hard drive is dead.
    My internet connection is dead.
    (When there is no dial tone our wired home phones in , we say "my phone is dead or my phone line is dead")
