Friday Fun! (Netflix)

April 8, 2011 4 comments

Hello my lovely readers!  Sorry for the slow week on the blog.  Normally if I’m caught up in a few longer books at a time, I’d grace your presence with movie reviews, but *shocker* I haven’t really been watching anything lately.  In fact, I’m watching tv and movies so infrequently that I’m having this mental debate about whether or not to suspend my Netflix subscription.  There once was a time when I only very rarely watched a movie, and generally I would do so in the theater or borrow a dvd from a friend.  I think I’m shifting back to that persona.  There’s just so much else to do!  Even playing a videogame is preferable, because, let’s be honest, with my xbox I can either play an active kinect game or play on live with friends.

I’ve become so much more active now that I’m getting back to who I really am that honestly by the time I get home, I would rather spend a couple of hours making myself an amazing dinner or make something quick then snuggle up in bed with a book and my cat.  I know that might sound pathetic, but I don’t even get home until late most nights due to plans with friends or going to the gym or heck, just wanting to be outside.  I like it that I get home and am exhausted.  I like feeling at the end of the day like I’ve done something with myself.  I like that it doesn’t take me hours and hours to fall asleep.

So what’s the point of having Netflix?  I like watching instantly, but honestly, most of the time I watch things on hulu or mtv.  I’ve had the same disc from Netflix since the beginning of February.  The more I think about it, the more it seems like an unnecessary expense.  Yet whenever I go to suspend it I think *wait*, but what if there’s a movie or a documentary or a tv show I really want to see and Netflix is my only choice?  What then?!

I think I’m at a stand-still of indecision for the moment. 😛
