Will my life ever get back to normal? I was never big on series but OMG, now my life is incomplete without a series, it all began in 2013 when I first came across Suits, i binged on three full seasons in a week, I couldn’t believe that I never cared for hanging with my friends, all I wanted to do was to sit and watch, it is really cool being invited into a whole new world, and just feel as great, Intelligent, powerful, manipulative and achieving as Harvey Spectra and Micheal Ross. My life changed ever since.
There were some real life predicaments where I would apply some of their basic, easy tactics to get out of them, it was really fun but the problem is that I had forgotten to live, all I wanted to do was to eat and watch my series, but this was not healthy for me as I am a student, but it did work well during the holidays, the sad thing was that life was happening around me and I was not part of it, it was sad when I missed a cousin’s wedding all because I wanted to see what Harvey was going to do next.
But truth is this year, How To Get Away With murder, The Royals, Empire, Power and Devious Maids, have made me be so much more fascinated with life, by showing me how to think outside of the box, know who the real people are around me, be aware of my surroundings, and most importantly trust no one.
The basic truth is that, series is not all bad, they do teach us about how to become better human beings, how to handle situations in life, by understanding different personalities, and how to manage them in a way that doesn’t harm you, or the next person, but yet again life will always surprise you.
So, dear series; please do continue to inspire, teach and entertain my life, But I will try to live more so that I can apply the lessons you teach me in real life, and not just and watch, and do nothing with the knowledge that it adds to my life.
