You’re welcome for that warning by the way. I’m a good person.
I tend to overindulge/obsess over things sometimes. Yesterday it was booze plus. Sometimes it’s things, or people. I actually don’t think I had ever realized this about myself before until I started writing this.
Lately my overindulgence/obsession has been about binge watching tv shows I like. This was never a problem before the internets. I find something I like, I watch it obsessively and then get sad when it’s over. When season 4 of Arrested Development came out on Netflix last year, myself and some friends took the day off work and watched the full season. It was actually a bit too much and I don’t think I’ll ever do that again. I did however watch Game of Thrones season 1 this week. That is 10 hours of my life spent watching one show in one week.
Orange is the New Black season 2 came out on Netflix on Friday. I read somewhere that the majority of bandwidth usage on Friday in North America was from people watching that show. Surprisingly I didn’t watch any on Friday OR Saturday. I think I consciously tried to wait a little. I have just finished episode 1 and midway through I had decided that the show was not going to be as good and I was mad. Chicago? Really?! All new characters? I just don’t think so, I can’t meet any new people right now. Thankfully it got better in the end which of course led me to watch episode 2. Groupon dicks? Finally! But no more, I must pace myself. Moderation is key.
