I used to watch around 15 different TV shows. I was constantly trying to stay up to date on all of the episodes and their confusing plots. These days I only watch about 5 shows and pretty inconsistently at that. I used to think that if I got behind in a show, I would be way too out of the loop but I have found that not spending so much of my time consumed with characters lives has allowed me to have my own.
In the last year without cable, I have been able to do so much more then before. Im going to more concerts, art shows, new bars, new restaurants, friendships have grown deeper, and overall I have to say I don’t really miss cable. Yes, it was sad not to be able to watch the Summer Olympics but instead I got to experience summer sun and fun.
I find myself branching out more and more and finding out things about myself that I may have never known if I didn’t go out more into this city that has so much to offer me.
