About Me:

Hey everyone, I am Cathryn. I am going into my 5th year of pharmacy at Butler University. I am also working toward a minor in Science, Technology & Society! In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with friends and writing. I've been working on NaNoWriMo and am hoping to be published at some point in the near future as well. Most of the time you can catch me studying in the library or browsing the Internet. Oh, and did I mention that I got married last summer?

We don’t have cable

So you may think, “No cable?! But how do you live?”

Quite easily, actually. I guess I am not the TV addict I used to be in high school. Back when I lived in the Apartment Village, I realized one day that I had gone a solid two weeks for not watching a single ounce of cable TV (yes, I weigh the length of time that I watch TV in ounces). College must have trained me out of watching TV, especially movies, which I was bad at watching anyway.

I will say that last year, I spent a lot of time watching WE tv’s Wedding Sunday with my roommates. And I will admit that while I was sick with the stomach flu over winter break, I watched about 24 hours (off and on) of HGTV. I love HGTV, you don’t even understand.

At any rate, when it came to moving into a new apartment, I was more than hesitant to pay upwards of $80/month on Bridezilla and House Hunters International. I mean, of course I love watching Irish men hunt for that perfect Hungarian getaway condo, and of course I would pay to watch mean women waddle around in wedding dresses yelling at people. But I just couldn’t justify it.

So we got an Xbox 360 with Kinect (and Netflix instant watch!) instead. And might I say, we are quite content. I personally love Dance Central, and to save myself the embarrassment of showing you how it works myself, I’ll let Ellen do it.

    AGREED! And we still get Modern Family and All Other Good Shows. Except The Walking Dead. That’s the only thing I miss. :(

    I have to agree with you on the cable thing. I LOVE not having it. I actually do stuff instead of sitting in front of it like a vegetable.
