My New Year’s Resolution this year is to be more creative. I have taken a giant step of faith in my ability to do so by cancelling my cable. Yep, that’s right. I no longer have cable/TV access.
I realized that I was spending more time watching TV when I could have been designing and being creative. I have so many unfinished projects and so many projects waiting to be done that I decided that this was the year that I would complete the projects and sign up for more swap-bot swaps.
I did renew my Netflix subscription so I can still watch movies when I want. In so doing, I am still saving about $120 a month by cancelling my cable subscription. When did watching TV get so expensive?
I will miss some of my favorite shows though. Top Chef, the new season (or not) of Project Runway, HGTV and Food Network. Oh well, maybe I will be able to follow them on the computer.
In the meantime, I will continue to teach myself Japanese with Rosetta Stone when I start jonesing for the television.
I think that I am already going through withdrawals and it is only the first half-day. Hopefully, I will get used to it. I will miss the Fox Soccer Network though. Maybe I can stay late at work and watch TV there! Just sayin . . .
