Thanks for visiting the page and checking out the new face lift. It was an experiment I did on Fiverr. They have some really good things on there and this was just one of the perks. With the internet there is literally always room to learn just a little more everyday. I can remember my principal telling me to my face in 1st grade to “learn something new everyday”. Then I heard my dad say it; so there must have been some truth to it. It’s not that I loved school and all of it’s standards of learning, but I did love learning. That’s why I could never go back to school or Barnes and Noble. Simply, because I will go broke! So before I go to bed I am always surfing the web on my iphone until I temporarily lose consciousness. Hey, some people read and some people surf the net. It all counts as reading, right?
Today was a little different. I came home from work, met my wife at the grocery, put gas in the car, and got home. So when I got home, I decided to take a breather and listen to some old school hip hop songs that I haven’t heard since high school. In case you’re wondering it was the 90’s. The last great decade; especially for hip hop. You know Nas, Biggie, Pac, Cube, Jay-Z, Pharcyde, Digable Planets, Tribe Called Quest, and Leaders of the New School. Okay enough of my frustration with today’s music and back to the point. The music I listened to was so rich in lyrical content and beats that I just had to do some type of workout. But, not before I gave my boys their haircuts. I’ve been cutting hair the last decade and I refuse to pay for a barber to do it with the prices that they charge today.
So then, I’m looking at 7:30pm already. What an evening and I was just getting started. But the energy was great and there was no way that I was going to be stopped. Workout. Check. Haircuts. Check. Wow. 8:30 already?!!! This is the time that I usually let myself go and let the television make background noise just for comfort. Sad, but true. For some reason today, things just took a different turn.
My thoughts on no television
1. I got a heck of a lot done
2. There was a lot of mail that I needed to pay attention to!
3. Squeezing in an intense 20 minute workout was not as big an issue as most nights
4. There was no time to be stagnant. Without being frozen by the set I realized that I really never have enough time to watch television
5. I almost feel like I need another job! Seriously, there is way more time in a day than you could ever imagine. Just cut out the crap and you’ll see.
Now it’s almost 10:00 and I am exhausted. Busy in a good way could pose a real great outlook on life the following day. Instead of looking forward to the weekend, I’m looking forward to the new that’s upon us! As I get older I want the time to slow down so that I can savor the gift of time that I have been given.
God Bless and I look forward to your comments.
