R U hooked on Television or Internet?
When I am doing something I like like writing a post for one site or another, and listening to a YouTube song or educational video, I get up and walk by the television set, Wendy Williams show is running, and I walk right past it without even paying it a second thought.
But since my wife enjoys it more than I do, I realize she would be happier herself if she had something more interesting to watch. For that reason, I need to get her hooked on the internet.
Just kidding. She already enjoys those home make-overs that Hulu has to offer.
But thinking of television as a drug is a good thing, because drugs need to be taken in smaller doses, or not at all. I know current television is boring. I know this because it wasn't always so.
I also am grateful for the internet, although to some who walk and text 24/7, it is like the Opium of the masses, a highly addictive drug. I use it to watch YouTube, Hulu, and Amazon Prime videos and to read articles, comment on them and write a few of my own.
If you abuse either of these 2 information or entertainment sources like a drug, you might be doing so for the wrong reason and not even realizing you have in fact a real life addiction to either of them or both.
