It’s always so glamorous, so exciting, so easy to get caught up in — but it might not be a good reflection of reality. Personally, I’ve referred to some TV characters and was like, wouldn’t it be great if I had powers like theirs or lives like theirs? Keep in mind, I watch sci-fi, crime and mystery, and fantasy shows — they’re all shows that are pretty out there in terms of ‘excitement’ and ‘reality.’ I think that’s fine; a little daydreaming doesn’t hurt anyone. But if you want to become a CIA agent because you thought it looked cool in Covert Affairs or a forensic anthropologist because Bones seems to have an amazing life because of her job… think again. TV shows are often exaggerated to keep your attention and to have dramatic outcomes that will keep the audience intrigued so TV shows are great for entertainment but if you get too immersed in the TV world, it may not be the best idea.
