When I was a junior in high school, I had mono. For a LONG time. I had almost 60 absences. Since I couldn’t work out (or do much of anything), I watched a LOT of TV. An absurd amount. I went through seasons and seasons of shows – everything from Shameless to Say Yes to the Dress.
After I (finally) recovered from my mono episode, I literally NEVER watched TV. I stopped keeping up with shows that I used to, and rarely sat down to watch anything. Unless of course, it was Shark Tank or The Situation Room – my favorites. Haha. But I finally started to get back into some of my favorite shows recently!
Now that I’m in college, however, it’s even more difficult to keep up with favorite programs! But — I found a sort of a solution. Hulu. It’s literally the best. After a tough crew workout, if I need a break before I tackle my work, I sometimes watch a random show on Hulu.
My favorite non-news shows right now consist of New Girl, The Mindy Project, Shark Tank, Family Guy, The Biggest Loser, The Carrie Diaries, and some other randoms. I don’t always have time to keep up with them regularly, but it’s nice to unwind once in awhile and watch some shows on my laptop! The seven dollars a month is a worth investment. Especially if you’re on the go a lot! I’ve been able to watch shows on planes and buses — not just in my dorm.
You should try it out! Harvard also gives us free HBO Go and Tivli, which allows us to watch HBO programs for free and watch live TV for free, which is awesome. I wish I could take advantage of it more!
What about you? What’s your favorite show? Do you use Hulu or TV as a way to unwind after workouts or after a tough day at school?
