So I decided yesterday, rather impulsively, that I need a break from TV and games. I’ve been sucked into the world of Borderlands for over a week now, and I’m very close to beating it. But I recently realized that I allow this stuff to absorb a bit too much of my life right now. I’ve been unmotivated to play with the drums, work on 3D, read a book, etc. etc. I believe this largely stems from my TV & video game addiction.
This isn’t like a permanent lifestyle change we are talking about here. This is more of a temporary fix to get some priorities back into place. I’m hoping to get through these things: 1) Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, 2) House of Leaves, 3) Catch-22, 4) get into a regular drum routine, 5) get into a regular workout routine, 6) finish at least 1 3D project, 7) write at least 3 reviews for the site. I am giving myself a 1 month hiatus on games and TV, starting yesterday. I will still be watching the random internet videos to keep the site up to date. So Trashed Ideas shouldn’t be affected by any of this. If anything, the review portion might become a more regular part of the lineup, which would be a good thing, right?
To my gaming and TV fans, I will prematurely apologize for this change. I will miss gaming with certain folks during this time, but it’s something I feel the need to do. So here’s to November 26th. Hopefully.
