1. I cut the cable

some two and a half or three years ago. We filled the void with Netflix (both streaming and 1 DVD at a time via USPS) and other than a few live sporting events, I haven't missed cable at all. OK, in all fairness, the first week or so I felt lost (I used to watch ALOT of TV), but now I barely notice if there is a TV in the room... on OR off. I'm no longer hooked on my weekly shows. I haven't even thought about cable news except for the occasional clip from the Rachael Maddow show during election season. I get all of my news from the net, if there is a current show I need to watch hulu usually does the trick, and otherwise I spend more time on my guitar (or more recently, I took up the piano), in my wood shop, working on my yard... It was like a giant weight was lifted from my shoulders when I gave the proverbial middle finger to cable TV.

I'm much happier these days.
