Spring semester, I embrace you.
The streets of Boston may be covered in slush and getting up for 8 AMs when all you want to do is melt into your mattress pad feels like jumping into the Charles River, but there's a silver light on the horizon. That's right: TV shows have returned for the home stretch before finale season. And because finales tend to take place while we college students are consumed with a similar-sounding but less fun activity, post-winter break is as good a time as any to get your couch potato on. There's no feeling like turning on your TV in January to hear that familiar school bell signaling the start of Glee.
Confession: I am the biggest TV junkie you will ever meet. Modern Family, Dexter, Toddlers & Tiaras - you name it, I've watched it (and probably loved it). The return of new episodes is like Christmas on my screen. And to make the deal even sweeter, I now have my very own TV to help me keep up with the Kardashians. I know it sounds like I'll never be leaving those four walls most weeknights (Commitments? Friends? So last semester.), but you cannot imagine how happy this makes me. The only thing better than tuning into Max Greenfield's (New Girl) abs every Tuesday night is tuning into them in HD.
TV has been pretty relevant in the news lately; if you haven't been living under a rock, you've probably heard about the demise of Megaupload and Megavideo due to SOPA. #FirstWorldProblems, anyone? While this proves slightly inconvenient for college students, it amuses me that the government currently places the integrity of television above world hunger, political unrest, and other prominent issues.
The weather is nasty, the days are short, and who can blame me if I'd rather be getting it on with my TV than trudging through the crunchy salt to yet another lecture? I could be one of those people who set up camp in the library only to catch up on Project Runway and a quick snooze on the table, but that's all way better from the comfort of my own bed. And until the weather gets its act together, you know where to find me.
Chem 101? So not fun. Barney Stinson? So much fun.
