I have been watching this DIY channel on my TV for a few months now, and it has given me a lot of inspiration for fixing up my house. Maybe too much, because I really do not have the time to do everything that I want to do now. But I am going to accomplish some projects. Right now I am trying to find out some more information on types of underlayment for flooring, because I would like to try to install some new floors in my house on my own. I think that would be a kind of tricky project, but as long as I measure everything accurately, and get the right materials, I should be able to do it pretty well.
The reason that I have been watching so much of this DIY channel is that I just got cable back in my house a few months ago. I did not have cable for maybe 3 years prior to getting it again. I guess I had forgotten how much I used to enjoy this type of programming, and so I have been watching more than my fair share of television ever since. But luckily the television I am watching is educational and so I do not view it as a waste of time. I used to watch a lot of television and it was not anything that was substantive in terms of its content. Rather, I was just using it to fill time, because I was bored. It was kind of like I had a void in my life. But I find that accomplishing things, such as the DIY projects I am taking on now, makes me feel a lot better about my life, and I rarely, if ever, feel bored these days. There just isn’t enough time for that.
