My Mission in Life
I love television. I’ve always loved television. I think there is something about a tv show and how you get to go along on this journey, for several years, with characters that you grow to love. It’s like they sort of become your friends, like you went through what they went through along with them.
I don’t always watch quality tv but when I really get into a show it has to move me in many different ways. The show has to have characters I grow to love and it has to bring out a strong emotion in me. If it’s a comedy show, I want to laugh, out loud. If it’s a drama I want to get chills or get mad or cry. I want to feel what they are feeling, I want to forget they are actors and get into the story. I think it’s a part of my Pisces escapism, I like to escape into my shows.
I get really excited to get the people I care about to watch the shows that I know is something amazing. It’s part just me wanting to share something I like and part me just not wanting them to miss out on a great show. I don’t recommend every show to every friend, I know some of my friends just won’t get into something like Skins.
Whether it’s silly or not (I’m pretty sure it’s kind of silly) my feelings get hurt when I feel friends of mine brush me off when I suggest a show. So often when a friend suggests a show for me to watch I’ll consider it and usually give it a try. Right now I’m trying out Veronica Mars and kind of liking it I think. I also have Dr. Who in my queue (Netflix that is), which I’m skeptical about but I’m all up for trying something new.
I don’t mean to say everyone has to watch everything I ever suggest but just maybe some people could give back just a little bit of what they get. Maybe once and a while the street could go both ways, I’m just sayin. Some of the best movies and shows I’ve seen were recommended to me by a friend and I think if I just shrugged them off, I never would have seen it.
How are any friendships supposed to work if we don’t share with each other and give a shit about what the other one gives a shit about? It’s a give and take. It’s being involved. It’s once and a while saying “yeah, I think I will give that a gry, thanks!”
