I have become a TV junkie. It’s like I’m on drugs. I have to feed my addiction or I start going through withdrawals. Couch potato? That’s me! Do I regard this as a problem? No. Not really. I don’t have any friends, so I forge relationships with characters in TV shows. They’re more well-rounded and complete than most “real” people I know anyways. You never know where you stand with the people you know in “real life.” But people on TV are just actors playing a part. They don’t know you, but you know them. It’s a one-way street and is far less complicated than trying to deal with the complications oncoming traffic generates. (That was a really great metaphor.) Plus, life on TV is always much more exciting than life outside of TV. I like excitement. Therefore, I choose to experience that excitement vicariously through the characters in various TV programs. Some may think this life is boring and unproductive, but those people are wrong. I’m still in college and am furthering my education. I didn’t shower today, but I did hang some curtains in my room.
So I’m a social recluse. It is what it is.
