12/30/11 - No TV, No Problem

I cancelled my cable last week and returned the boxes today. A major step to setting priorities, simplifying and cutting-back. It is so freeing!



The only reason I kept the service this long was for my roommate, and he doesn't watch TV either. He does everything on his computer. And since he isn't going to move out and is staying for awhile now (Thank God!), I took a leap of faith, called the provider and said, "Shut 'er down, Danno!" It took awhile for them to understand me but they finally gave me a disconnect order number. Some people just don't speak old Hawaiian TV anymore.

It won't actually save me that much in $$ because I had to keep the ISP, but I haven't missed the boob tube for a second. I've got way too much to do to watch TV anyway!

I want to tweak my website so that I can include the 2 new mobile businesses I've recently created in my head. Yes, I know a cerebral image won't actually generate an income, but one has to start somewhere, right?

The name of the businesses are: All Things Photo and At Your Service. Stay tuned for details. Coming soon!

  1. I actually turned my TV on for the first time in 2 months. Watched a movie that I've seen a hundred times already then went flip, flip and switched it off.

    A call to the cable company is something I need to do very soon too. No sense paying a monthly fee for what amounts to a digital clock :)

  2. @ Maria - that, and I was too tempted to "veg" in front of it after a 10-12 hour work day. Life is much better now without it. Go for it! :)
