r’s note: I am honored to be a member of the Netflix Streamteam. Each month join me for shows I am watching and enjoying.
Confession…I am a digital hoarder. I hoard patterns on Ravelry with the thought that someday I will abandon my standby scarf (a pattern I have memorized) and create something new. Pins on Pinterest, again with the thought that I will so motivated that I am going to make some wonderfully awesome thing inspired by pins. Now, my hoarding has crept on over to my Netflix queue and honestly, my queue is out of control.
It didn’t start that way; I would be scrolling through the suggestions looking for something to watch but that something had to be a thing I could only half watch as television is always accompanied by me playing a round of Candy Crush (yeah, I still play), crocheting (I have to look at each stitch), doing some neglected household chore, or mindless background noise while I read a book. All of the “sit down and actively pay attention” selections were added to my list, reserved for that special moment when the stars would align and the house would be clean and I would allow myself time to just relax. Plus, I kept feeling like I needed to be in the right mood to watch some things on Netflix. Subtitles meant that I couldn’t fall asleep to the TV. Serials meant that I needed to keep track of who was who and there were some things I thought would stress me out and these things made television watching a chore and found me dialing up another episode of Futurama.
Dang! Who knew television watching was so complex?!
Here is a list of my shlefies with the excuses for not watching and solutions to get them watched.
Girl on a Bicycle
Subtitles. I felt that I could not watch because they need to be read.
Dedicate a night to watch with an easy knit pattern from my Ravelry queue!
