My family didn't have cable when my brother and I were growing up. My parents still don't have cable or satellite.
They watch free TV.
At the ripe old age of 23ish, I became the proud sponsor of basic cable. Man, I was hooked. I was blown away by stupid shows, some of which I still love today *cough* MXC *cough*.
My cable infatuation faded once repeat season came around.
Repeats are boring.
I lost interest.
Eventually I ended up not owning a TV for more than a year. I never missed it because I didn’t need it. I prefer music to television. And the Internet was my TV.
Aren’t you supposed to be writing about Jeannette 2.0?
The original point of my blog…
2.0 – that’s the new me.
It started with regular eMail, instant messaging and of course, I created a MySpace profile. And for several years, I didn’t do much else.
Next thing you know, I’m blogging, twitter-ing, flickr-ing, ifreelance-ing, del.icio.us-ing, blogcatalog-ing… and amazingly, there’s more! And once you start, you have to maintain, constantly improve and add content to those different ‘places’.
Less than two years ago, I didn’t even own a TV and barely used my computer for anything outside of school or work purposes and now I’ve bulked up my technology muscles to become a savvier version of my former self.
