Forget Reality TV, I'd Rather Watch My Own Life
Happened to see the results of the Amanda Knox trial today and by some off chance I also heard about the ending result of the Casey Anthony trial when it was big. But honestly I can care less about either. I have seen so many people getting upset over something that's not even apart of their day to day life. Why be tore up over nothing really? The outcome is going to be the outcome no matter how much you turn up the volume on your boob tube or yell at the screen. I used to watch the news myself but then I saw how I was emotionally affected by something that I can't change, something so completely outta my hands. So I decided to stop.
Then on the other hand you have reality tv. From time to time I find myself sucked into it. And wanting to gossip about people I don't even know as if they live next door. It's just gotten so out of hand it's ridiculous. Is it so wrong for me to enjoy living my life in a bubble? Amanda Knox who? What's a Snookie? Is there anything wrong with that or should I fall in with the majority of society and care about someone else's life when I can barely keep up with my own? Should I be paying attention to could-be and probably-are murderers? Should I be consumed with the reality of what tv has become with it's girl-on-girl fights? Kate plus her eight? And Kim and her other Kardashians just to have something to talk about at the water cooler?
Nah. I'd rather save that water cooler time by getting a bottled water and spend the time that's left over planning my next vacation.
