I broke down tonight. “Just while I’m eating, just for a bit”
I’m dumber. I watched TV.
You see, the main reason I dislike TV is that I’m a whore for efficiency. Please note that I am the only person you know who uses the term ‘time burglar’. For instance, “I cannot believe you play Guitar Hero, what a fucking time burglar”.
For those who don’t know, I’m in a race I take quite seriously. I’m in a race against time. I am trying to do as much as I possibly can while spending my brief time on this planet.
TV just can’t feed me information at the rate I want to devour it. “What, I’ve got to wait through 3 minutes of ridiculous consumerism to find out if the Mythbusters can make a glider out of a crash dummy and plywood…lame!”
Newspaper…Wall Street Journal for instance (the only print paper I’ll read).
As I browse the Journal, “Let’s see…….don’t care, don’t care, China’s screwing somebody again, Hank Paulson looks like an alien, someone invented a better toilet.”
Done. In 5 minutes I learned more than you did all semester between bouts of ‘Runway’, Guitar Hero, and hanging out at some overhyped bar.
Anything not on the bucket list…is on the ‘fuck it’ list.
Stay on your grind.
