No more TV for Manilla
« on: October 02, 2006, 12:49:31 PM »
I have cut TV out of my life altogether, and i have to say, it feels pretty good. I highly recomnd it. The fitrst few days are boing, but ive just started working out more, and doing alot of laundry. Maybe the second part isnt as cool as the worikng out part, but hey it needs doing.

I never watched tv in the first place, and I agree its's pretty nice, you have alot more freetime.
Although I do watch my share of DVD's.
life is too short, so love the one you got

I hear ya on the no TV thing. I watch maybe 20 mins a day, if that!! I am usually doing my online course work, or working out. Its rather liberating to just say screw TV and do something contructive. During the first 3 weeks of my injury thats all I could really do, so now I am sick of sitting on my ass and watching the death box! Just thought I would share my two cents...Good on both of ya!

because of my parents anti-cable psycho philosophy, i generally dont watch tv. while we do get some good shows like the simpsons, its usually not worth the trouble trying to translate words out of the static. like johnny boy though, i do watch about 1-2 movies a week.

I watch 3 hours of TV a week right now. Much less then i used to. I do however spend alot of time gaming. (1-3 hours a day) So that does take up a chunk out of my life.

I think the only shows worth watching are simpsons, family guy, two and a half men, and mythbusters (along with other various discovery channel things) oh and Lost is just so damn addicting.

my dad cancelled our dish network about 2 mounths ago ... and im pretty happy about it ..my life is so busy with school, band and parkour every other second of my life, that tv is pretty meaningless to me .. any time not spent doing the above things is spent either on the computer or sleeping, another favorite past time of mine  ;D
