I have been inspired by another blogger, Noel, to give up something for a week and do something special with that time. I do not think I could go without reading for an entire week, so I was thinking of something else to give up. I was having a hard time, but then I realized what I should renounce: TV.
I am going to go a week without any TV. I don’t know how hard this will be, but I know it will be useful.
Now, I don’t spend insane amounts of time watching TV every day; in fact, during the school week I hardly have the time, but there are those few moments. I will be in the middle of something, and happen to walk past our living room where someone has the TV on. I will think a line was funny, and go in and sit down for a moment; and before you know it, a half hour of my time had disappeared. A similar thing happens on Saturday mornings: I will plan on just watching an episode or two, and the next thing I know it's time to eat lunch. All that valuable time wasted.
So, I am renouncing TV for a week. During that time I hope to read more, and maybe even start editing that novel I wrote a while ago. Who knows? Anything is possible, with the right amount of motivation and time.
