The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: No Series Edition

With the end of the television series Fringe, I just realized that I am not actively watching any television series right now. There is truly nothing airing right now on any channel anywhere that is holding my interest.

Over the last several years, the number of series we’ve watched has dwindled. Most of the television series we watch are older ones from Netflix which we can watch without commercial interruption.

Right now? Nothing. There are a couple that I will probably continue to watch if/when they return from hiatus, but that’s months away at the very least.

Right now, my evenings are mostly filled with reading and writing and board games. I fully expect that to continue. I tend to find greater adventure and humor on the written page.

Possession aggression Once we view something as “ours,” it can be very hard to have that thing taken away from us. This can often lock us into behaviors that aren’t necessarily good over the long haul. (@ seth godin)
