Too Much Television

I need a hobby. I don’t know where to begin.

One of my friends on FB posted a survey. It listed 100 television shows/series and asked us to put a mark beside any show we watched more than six episodes. I marked a total of 40 something shows. Aaack, almost 50 percent. That is a lot of television.

Lately, I have been sitting on the couch and adding more series to that list. Last night, I was texting a friend and said I have been mindless for the past couple months. These past two years have been a blur to me. With the exception of JE’s passing, I have really no idea what I have done this year. Nothing I feel like I truly accomplished.

I’m going to take that last statement back. I have gotten more involved with my church and those group activities. So my Sundays are spent almost all day church related.

Tonight, my plans are to keep the television off. To pick up that book I have been meaning to finish and to play some Sims 4 (my secret vice). I have created a Sims world in which everyone is gay!! One of the things I love about Sims is they have created a trans character (a townie–in Sims lingo). As one of my friends has said “turn off the noise” (in regards to technology). I will do just that. No texting, no television. Perhaps just some music in the background. And the technology of that game I love so much.

    Ohhh yes!
    Music and a book? Fantastic.
    I also watch a lot of TV and movies. The thing with streaming services is that you just keep watching. Like when you’re reading, the next chapter is right there…
    Oh, and have you thought about volunteering? Maddie is doing something with an animal shelter and she’s loving it.

    I think many people spent too much time watching TV during the pandemic, especially those of us who live alone.

    During the pandemic I was worried about not working and watching to much tv, so I volunteered at the ASPCA…spending time with dogs and walking them. If you like animals that could be a win.
