At least I’m not on MTV

So…it’s yet another snow day. Insane, right?

I kind of love working from home. I miss my work computer, with it’s super fast internet speeds and Photoshop and all that, but there’s something about working in pajamas whilst watching MTV that I just can’t hate on.

Speaking of MTV, I have a confession. I love it.

Ok, not everything on it. There are shows I just think are stupid, but the shows I like, I reeeeally like. And I’m pretty sure it’s just because they make me feel better about my life.

Here is my analysis of what I watch and why:

1. I Used to be Fat

Why I love it: Um, hi. A show about teens losing around 90 pounds in about 100 days. Sign. Me. Up. Maybe I’m just a sucker for a makeover, but I love weight loss shows. In a big way. In college, I got my entire house of four roommates addicted to The Biggest Loser, which I had been watching for about four seasons at that point. (And yes, I cry at almost every finale.)

2. Jersey Shore

Why I like it: Ok, stay with me on this one. Yes, I know these people are ridiculous. Yes, I know their lifestyles are insane, unhealthy, and will undoubtedly end in premature death. But after a crazy day at work, when a million thoughts are running through my exhausted brain, all I have to do is flip on everyone’s favorite East Coast crazies and everything in my head just gets…quiet. I’m pretty sure Jersey Shore literally slows down my brain cells. And I like it.

3. Teen Mom

Why I like it: Ok, here’s the thing. I’m pretty sure I don’t actually like this show. It just happens to be on whenever I randomly flip on the TV during the day (which honestly doesn’t happen that often). So I watch it. And, well, it makes me feel a lot better about my life, no matter what is going on.

Actually, I think that’s the common denominator of the shows I watch and why. They make me feel better about myself. It’s like, sure, I have stress, but at least I didn’t have a baby at 16. At least I don’t weigh 250 pounds. At least I’m not nicknamed Snooki.

So, ok. Maybe this is not my proudest post. But it’s definitely not my most shameful.

  1. Your reasons for liking Jersey Shore are identical to mine. Scary thought: Sometimes my brain slows down so much that 30 minutes after an episode I really can’t recall specifics about what happened.

    True Life. #speakingofshowsIlike…
