A new friend has helped me see that an idea that has been floating around my brain for a while is indeed a good one.
So with that, on August 1, I am giving up television for one month. I don’t want to get legalistic about it and say that I will never catch a few minutes of TV or that I’ll never watch a movie. I just want to give it up as a primary form of entertainment, and limit my time spent wasting away in front of the television. I haven’t decided on my terms yet, but I’ll probably keep it to FoodTV and the occasional Weather Channel update.
I think this will be hard at first, but I once went a year without a television in my dorm room at school. I think it will ultimately help me get a piece of my life back that I have surrendered to TV.
