is there some golden number that represents what constitutes as watching too much television?
whatever number that is, i must have surpassed it by now. i know i’m not alone on this. i typically don’t notice that i’m committed to several television programs at once. the realization kicks in when there’s a season finale and half of the programs I watch go on a hiatus for a couple months. i’ll just sit in my room and question, “what do i do now with all this free time?” it’s such a strange feeling.
the same goes for when i start a new book. i will spend hours reading and won’t put a book down until i’m actually done with it. when i’m finished reading that same question will come up. i seem to be in more of a rush to get through something and then once it’s over i feel somewhat anxious or I guess disappointed that it’s over. in a way it’s like a huge build up and then bam! you’re left with a cliffhanger and tons of questions to follow.
i guess this can kind of sum up how i have been experiencing moments in my life thus far. i’m using the term “experiencing” quite loosely because it hasn’t felt as if i’ve taken the time to step back and appreciate these moments while they happen. then again a moment can be any length of time. what i can do going forward is just take a second and appreciate factors in my life and the world around me daily and not rush through things.
