watch less television (read all 2 entries…)

It took something bad to happen before I was able to wean myself off TV, but I’m getting there. My TiVo died the day I left on vacation and I didn’t notice until I came back 5 weeks later, thus missing all my favorite shows. This helped spur me into stopping watching a lot of the shows I kept up with. Then finally, two weeks ago, the TiVo died for good with no way to recover and so I’ve been watching no more than about a half hour a day. Not bad. But DirecTV is replacing the TiVo for free so we’ll see what happens when I’m enabled again.

read all the books I haven't read that are sitting on my bookshelf
I hate bookstores....

Why is it that every time I go to a bookstore, I end up buying like three or four books and then only end up reading one of them while the others go on my shelf never to be touched again?

Background noise

In addition to watching TV shows, I tend to always have the TV on in the background whenever I’m doing something else like cooking, working at home, surfing the web, even reading. This is not good. I need to find something else to do. To imagine, I actually went an entire year without even owning a TV and now I watch about 2 hours a day actively and probably 3 or more in the background.
