I love watching TV. And I don't have cable, so TV for me is Netflix. My favorite show is The Office and I am always watching it. As soon as I finish the series I just restart it. I am not one of those people who says, "I never watch TV." To be honest I think most people that say that are lying. I think everyone watches quite a large amount of TV, Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, or movies.
Last year I wanted to read one book a month and by the time 2013 had ended I had read two books. That's all. Just two books. Not really something to be super impressed with. I simply never really made time for reading. And when it came down to reading or watching Netflix, I always chose Netflix.
I want this year to be different. I want to read more than two books, so instead of just saying it I am making a change to make it possible. I call it "TVless Tuesdays." Every Tuesday in 2014 I will not watch TV, Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, or movies. Instead, I will have to spend my evening doing something else, which I hope will give me more time to read. Or maybe do more house projects! But most importantly not sit in front of our TV like a mindless zombie, even though I love zombie shows like The Walking Dead.
If you are like me and are willing to admit you love TV (and could probably spend a little less time in front of it this year) join me for TVless Tuesdays. We'll end up with fifty-two days at the end of the year you did something else.
Plus, I just checked what is on cable on Tuesday nights and it's not even that good. Let's do this!
