My Guilty Pleasure!

Yo... So life is going really good! Israel and I Have finished registering for classes at ASU for next semester. We may take ten years to do it, but, we will finish our Bachelors degrees. Israel plans on going to Law school after that andI fully support him! The world needs good people to be lawyers. We also are having lots of fun with our new workouts that we do. We have seldom missed a day since we started this new program. I'm Lovin it! Lately I have been feeling guilty because of my true liking of some TV shows... My whole life I grew up with the ideas in my head that TV is a big waist of time... I still somewhat agree and so I try not to waste too much time infront of the "boob-tube". I will however admit that there are a few shows I can't stand missing... They are in no certain order...

What not to Wear (Stacy and Clinton are just Fabulouse!),

Divine Design A great show on HGTV I feel like I learn great design ideas every time I watch it!(Oh to have Candice Olsen's Design talent! "How Divine!!!"),
Chuck is a great show about a computer nerd that just unfortunately was roommates, in college, with someone in the CIA... Chuck hasn't been on for like half a year but is soon beginning a new season, I'm hoping it will be as good as the first season... And last but not least... a show that my own siblings got me hooked's on every Thursday night... Burn Notice. Love this show!

But aside from these great shows I still think that TV can waist time and rob us from making great memories, and from accomplishing great things in our life! I feel a bit guilty about enjoying TV... but I do. I do admit that TV once in awhile is a good way to relax and not have to do anything. Anyways... random, but this is something I think about a bunch and I want to keep myself far from being the average American and having the Average American's TV habits!
P.S...If you do need a good show... I highly recommend Burn Notice!

Hey Stephanie, I found you through the Smith's blog. I hope you dont mind me leaving a comment and seeing what you are up to once in a while :)

I totally agree about TV. When we moved, we decided not to hook up cable so we wouldn't waste our time together watching it (although I dID have a sick obession with TLC when we had cable). I do have to admit, though, it is nice to relax in front of the TV once in a while!

You know my stance on TV. I do think it is a good way to just forget about what's going on around you. I don't understand why people make such a big deal out of watching TV. I really don't see much of a difference between TV and almost any other hobby (aside from things you could do that are physical) I mean something where you're kind of just sitting there. It essentially does the same thing, which is to pass time. If I'm entertained, then I feel like it was worth it. I'm not writing this just to disagree with you. And I'd be willing to discuss this anytime, because I think it's an interesting topic.
