Welcome back! As I write this, I have just finished the television show Hotel. Don’t know that particular show? Apparently, no one else does either. Anytime I mention it outside of my house I am met with stares and confused looks. As I explain what the show was about, people give me that look. You know the look.
Yeah. It is my guilty pleasure to watch old television shows. Especially shows that aren’t well known.
I usually apologize.
I have decided that I am going to stop apologizing for what I love. Even if what I love is insanely obscure.
I am not the only one. I have noticed all over the internet that people like to apologize for their guilty pleasures. We feel that we have to be embarrassed for liking a piece of media. If the majority does not like it, we must be embarrassed by it.
I refuse to do that anymore. I am going to be proud of the fact that I enjoy obscure television shows. I enjoy reading romance novels. I enjoy live-tweeting a soap opera. I enjoy watching David Venable on QVC. Every so often I wonder over to Nick and Disney and watch their shows. Especially Girl Meets World.
I enjoy it so why should I hide that enjoyment from others? I have found that we do not have long on the earth. Why spend precious time apologizing for something that doesn’t hurt anyone?
