i've spent a lot of time lately thinking on how to get enough time to do things that are important to me...and it occurred to me that i'm REALLY glad now that our tv consumption is at an all-time low. what a time waster tv can be!
there's really not enough time in the day for me to get all that i want/need to get done, done...where in the world would i fit regular tv viewing?
i see computer games the same way but i admit that i still make time for them here and there. well, i think its ok to make time for time wasters here and there...in moderation...so i allow myself to waste time sometimes...but frankly, i just don't have enough time to spend a lot of time on tv or games...there's just FAR too much to be done on a regular basis, i tell ya!
when my life is near its end, i want to know that i spent most of my time in life wisely...and didn't spend the vast majority of my waking hours on senseless activities that didn't really benefit anyone. i do think recreation is very important, but electronic recreation has such a tendency to be so very addictive! before you know it HOURS have passed by.
i personally have a hard time breaking free of it. this computer is forever my time sucker. i'm afraid the iphone may end up making me even more "plugged in", but i'm allowing right now for the newness of it. and its something that i think has much more positives than negatives, so i'll figure out how to make it work. :)
