Netflix Off For A While

I had signed up for Netflix a month ago and got the first month for free as a trial period. At first I didn’t know what I would go and watch on it. I just clicked on the first episode of Star Trek Discovery, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD so I could check and see how it plays. I am using the data on my cell phone to stream movies, live sports and stuff. I get 200GB of data on my plan from Vodafone and that’s a lot and therefore I put it to good use when I finally got this new tv a month ago.

But, I have a lot of movies and tv shows that I want to watch and still have yet to watch that is not on Netflix but elsewhere. So after a couple of weeks that went by, I still hadn’t watched anything on Netflix after signing up. A few days ago I thought that I should atleast try and watch the 10 episode first season of Lost In Space, a show that I really wanted to watch ever since it first came out. So I finally did that and enjoyed the show and the way Netflix is.

But I haven’t continued and signed up for the next month and won’t do so until maybe January or February. I love what they have up on Netflix but if I pay Rs.500 now and not watch more than 10 films atleast or a couple of seasons of a tv show or two, then it’s a waste. So I guess I will wait for a bit and see; once I finish this big pile of movies and tv shows that I have with me, then I will continue with Netflix.

Looking Forward To December?

What are you looking forward to in December?

Not much really. As a general thing I kind of like the month of December because there is a holiday vibe. If you are lucky you get a few days off to relax and enjoy with your family and friends. And if you are in the west then you also get presents. I live in a place and in an industry where we get a day or two off – the 25th & the 1st (technically January but yeah it’s at the end of December).

Other than that, I like that there are decorations and cake (though some of the cake isn’t that good when it’s that dry fruit cake that is difficult to swallow) and the fact that people will start calling you for some silly celebrations. Whether I join in or not is a different thing. I like that end of a year feeling which is something I like a lot. I like looking back at the year that was and seeing what changes I can bring about or do differently to improve my life situation.

My favourite day of the year other than my own birthday is December 31st to 1st. I love New Year’s eve and closing out the year with a drink in my hand and having had a nice meal.
