Relaxation is essential to all people. Rest is a good thing but is the type of rest you are getting influencing your behavior in a way you dislike? I bring this up is because as I get older the more that I become disillusioned with common media like television, music, and advertisement. I don’t understand this obsession with watching what we could be doing. Want to sing then why not do so yourself or listen to some good music? If you want to go see wilderness why not go on a walk or a hike? I understand wanting to see new and fascinating things and this is what I watch on television. I just don’t get why people want to waste time you will never get back on things that are so blasé. What does it do for them? Do they just want to see people who are in worse positions then them in the case of Jerry Springer and others like it? I also cannot seem to wrap my mind around people’s stupendous obsession with celebrities. They are people too so what is the big deal about them? Are people jealous? Why can’t people be satisfied with seeing them in movies or shows and not pry into every little detail of their lives? It just bothers me that it seems America is lazy, by way of the reflection of their state of mind by support of types of media, and wants all of life to be a spectator sport.
