When I used to live at home I would watch TV every day. After dinner my family and I would sit and watch whatever was on TV that day for hours, but this changed when I came to college. I didn’t watch TV anymore, I had no time or interest for that anymore. Maybe my busy soccer schedule or the work load didn’t allow me to. But as weeks went by, I started to miss it. So I told myself that I had to create myself some time to disconnect and just be able to watch something!
I started doing that for a couple of weeks and realized how much better that made me feel, my attitude changed and I felt happier.This made me think, why do we watch TV? Well I think TV shows are a perfect way to escape from real life and to forget about our problems. It was like the perfect excuse on my schedule for me to turn the lights of my room and lay in bed. Who doesn’t like doing that?
I started watching Two and Half Men one of those days, and this show made me so happy. I watched the whole show in one semester. I loved the dark humor and the connection the actors in the show had. Watching that 20 minute episode made me happier, I could do hours of work after an episode. The magic of sitcoms is that they make us happy and helps us forget about our problems. So I encourage all of you to give yourself a break every once in a while, watch your favorite show and you’ll be re-energized for hours!
