Life Without TV

On Tuesday, I decided to quit intentionally watching TV. What that means is that I'm not specifically anti-TV, I just decided that I don't have time for it anymore. There are a lot of shows that I love (Heroes, e.g.). I just don't have time to keep up with them. So instead of watching them when they are broadcast, I'll wait 'till they get on DVD and add them to my Netflix queue.

I'm serious about this. One of the first things I did when I got home from work Tuesday night was delete a handful of shows from the DVR that I hadn't gotten around to watching yet and cancel all of the upcoming recordings were scheduled. It didn't even hurt when I deleted the unwatched Heroes or canceled future recordings of The Closer and Saving Grace.

Now, when I watch TV, it will be to watch a DVD that I have. If someone else is watching TV, I won't go out of my way to avoid it. But I'm not going to seek it out anymore.
