I've got a Love Film account, but I put myself on the lowest level - one DVD a month and 2 (or is it one?) films streamed online a month. That is about as much as I can manage.

Besides having 115 textbooks in my bedroom has proved to give me a good distraction.

Although I really like music, I always have it on in the background when I'm not revising and I leave music playing all night while I sleep (I wake up a lot feeling freaked out so the music calms me down).



PM me if you want a PDF copy of the ICD-10 or the Mental Health Act 1983/2007. I ALSO HAVE THE DSM-V BOOK and am a pharmacology student.

I have a visual impairment / neurological problems so I need people to type in clear text and no funny fonts. Also excuse any typos, my vision blocks things out.
I have autism and have problems communicating, PMs included.
Just becasue I type well doesn't mean I speak well. I am only part time verbal.

I don't watch TV ever, really. There's not a lot of shows I find that interesting and the ones I do I can find easy enough online!

I own one TV and have a TV license as it's only 7.50/year in supported housing, which is a bit jammy. But I don't watch it. I watch a bit of TV when I'm at my parents (The Apprentice, Casualty and occasionally Corrie) and will probably watch The Apprentice when I go back home, but apart from that I don't bother. I'm always online.

I don't have a TV, but do watch stuff on iPlayer and youtube sometimes - almost entirely comedy.

Can I just say, it's great fun when the TV licensing people send you angry accusational letters then come to your house... and there is no TV! :)

^ lol. I had 3 letters coming from TV licensing, and I was happy to tick the "I don't have a TV" box.

I avidly watch certain programs that I enjoy, such as Doctor Who, Star Trek and the Big Bang Theory. But I watch them online rather than on the actual TV. I never watch the TV. Partly because I don't have one in my room and so the only one I could watch is downstairs, which is always being watched by someone else in the family. The other reason is I just can't stand normal TV. I can't sit and just watch something. So I watch stuff on the Internet in my own time.

Also, I refuse to watch adverts.

Of course I'm sane, when trees start talking to me, I don't talk back.

I can live without tv itself, but I like it. Plus I have lots and lots of things I can watch on my hard drive.

I watch it to kill time. Or have it on for background noise so that it's not quiet.

I watch TV everyday, though more of listen to it, more than actually watch it, unless I'm playing a game on it, so it is a necessity for me



Take me away, I just want out from this self-imprisoned self-made Hell. Don't be surprsed, this is your mind coming to life by self-sacrifice. This tragedy of death will walk hand in hand with every thought of regret. Blame yourself for what you've become. The mind is a powerful thing set to self-destruct.

Usually too busy to watch tv. Torrent movies on my phone. Haven't seen news or a weather forecast since jan of 2011. Ill watch people watching tv occasionally , going to from places.. n its stuff I've seen already anyway. Tv is crap these days, and no wonder why people have such poor qualities cause their usually acting like people on tv. Idk I personally think were screwed , everyone watching jersey shore... ppl wanna be like that -_-. I'm attached to my sidekick but I could like without electronics easy.

I used to watch a lot of TV growing up, but then I moved out and didn't have my own TV and got out of the habit of watching. I still watch DVDs of shows I enjoy, or sometimes comedy shows when I'm feeling down, but I don't watch TV at all any more. My flat this year came with a TV as part of the contract, but I haven't really touched it at all.

I'm not a huge fan of the TV. I get fed up with all the adverts, I prefer to just watch films on my laptop as a rule.

I haven't owned a tv for two years and I don't miss it at all. I watch what programmes I want to watch on the BBCiplayer and other sites, ITV, Channel Four etc on my laptop. My partner does the same on his laptop, we don't miss having a tv.
