I stopped watching TV in 2013 because I would get hooked on shows and I didn’t want them to control me any more. Stargate for example: I had to watch every episode. I didn’t like that. I started getting hooked on “In the Universe” type shows – even though they weren’t telling me any science I didn’t know already. I had to watch them all. I didn’t like getting that way with shows. Nowadays with Netflix and stuff it’s encouraged — and I dont’ think it’s a bad thing for most people either then or now. But for myself, I wanted to see what I’d do without it.

short answer: A lot of Wikipedia, I made 15,000 Vines when vine existed, have thousands of followers/follow thousands of social networks online… always engaging with people… learning something new daily…
and I know TV’s still going to be there for me when I’m ready. I watch _some_ things of course. I’m not anti-TV. I watch TV with other people – whatever they’re watching sometimes.
