No TV [EXPERIMENT] – Paused

So I made it to Day 21, more or less. I had a few breaks on weekends, a few I didn’t even realize. But overall, I pretty much did what I wanted to do with the experiment.

For the warm up. ‘Cause like I said, I’m planning to ditch the TV altogether in Korea.

So lessons learned, lessons learned. Let’s keep this all one liners, for the bloated fun of it:

  • I didn’t get as much out of it as I hoped.
  • Turns out, by the time I start watching TV, I’m pretty much not going to get anything else done… except sleep, and that doesn’t count.
  • Still, I missed nothing.
  • Movies and TV shows and whatever else plays on that thing don’t even register for me, for the most part.
  • For the most part, it’s forgettable.
  • With a few notable exceptions.
  • A few documentaries might be decent every once in a while.
  • Like the origami documentary, Between the Folds (check it).
  • And I’m sure a couple other movies come out each year that are decent.
  • Like Inception.
  • Actually, nothing’s like that movie, but you know what I mean.
  • Anyway, I think overall I just like hanging out with people, and if that means watching TV with people, I’d rather do that than… not.
  • As far as TV itself goes, though, I didn’t get much but I didn’t lose much.
  • As far as TV goes, I’m indifferent.
