I find it interesting how it generally is a human trait to let the negative experiences fade over time while holding on to the positive things. A survival skill?
It surprises me that the news networks would insinuate that humans WANT to have horrific stories pumped into there homes, riling their emotions, stirring the pot.
Either humans are bi-polar, or the networks are lying about what people want to see. I believe it is the latter.
I decided today would be an afternoon of crocheting and netflix, I hadn’t turned on the television for the last 5 or 6 months. I am reminded why …
The series I chose was quite addicting, like the old time soap operas mom used to watch. One after the other they began and ended, leaving me wanting to see the next. Hours of this! I felt as though my whole day was being wasted, yet found it difficult to even get up long enough to let the dogs out! This thing with televised drama seems to be even more time consuming that the internet. At least with blogging there is time spent in ones own mind, instead of just droning through the afternoon, one show, followed by the next, and the next.
I intend to keep the television off for several more months. I will leave it long enough to forget what these series of shows were even about. Hopefully there will be many opportunities to introduced variance in my days, as has been the case for some time now.
