I bought a ridiculous television a few months ago as part of our nation’s Black Friday celebration, and frankly, it’s consumed my life.
(Here’s a link to it on Amazon, in case you’re someone who makes incredibly destructive impulse buys.)
I remember being productive before that. I’d go home after work and write comedy, produce music, invent things… well, no more. I’ve watched movies, many seasons of tv, and while every minute of that was something I wanted to see, it’s a shortcoming of my to-do list that this was ever a priority.
But even recognizing that this is wrong, I can’t slow down. In fact, I’ve just ordered a needless accessory.
