Blame it on my personality type but I’m not one to watch TV for hours on end. I really don’t get it. I feel like my time & energy could be used elsewhere. It used to bother me when my family would watch TV all night. Five hours sitting & staring at mindless bullshit to kill time. Meanwhile, I was doing my homework, going to dance class, hanging out with my friends, or whatever else. I would come home & they were still watching TV. Ugh. What a waste.
Even as an adult, I know people who literally watch “the idiot box” all day long. Doesn’t that get old? I can’t watch TV for 10 hours a day. I have no idea how they do it. I get antsy after 30 minutes. I need to get up & get moving. I need to do something productive with my life. Even when I’m having a low day or I’m feeling sick, I don’t want to watch TV all day.
Don’t get me wrong – I know there’s a difference between marathoning a show via Netflix & watching whatever crap is on. I’m not talking about powering through OITNB before the next season comes out. I mean literally waking up, sitting in front of the TV, & only moving to eat or go pee.
What kind of life is that? Doesn’t your brain feel like mush?
