With all of the commotion at the moment about Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead a lot of people have been asking me why I am not watching these things right now.
There are two issues with watching tv series. Firstly, I am very busy. Between work, running, drawing, writing, coding and streaming I don’t have much time to watch things. Most of the time that I am relaxing with the tv on I am also doing other things as well such as catching up on emails. This means that if I am going to spend time watching tv series then I have to spend less time doing the other things that I want to do.
More importantly however, when I start watching a tv series I seem to get really addicted to it. I get to a stage where I end up going to bed hours later than I should do (which makes it hard for me to get up for work let along getting up for a run). I also stop doing pretty much everything except for watching the show.
I don’t feel as though this is healthy for me so I try to avoid watching tv series where possible. There is a chance that I will catch up on these shows at a later time but this will probably be when I am off work for a week and therefore have a bit more time available to me.
