Recently, I have been spending so much more time watching shows and movies. A study conducted in April 2020 shows that I am not alone. According to this study, on average, Americans stream eight hours of television each day through the pandemic. Whereas I know some watched productive shows and learned new things, I mostly did not. The majority of movies and shows I watched were to enjoy the comfort of seeing storylines I knew would play out well. I even got comfortable having the television on in the background while I did chores, something I did not do previously.
