Reality Rocks
Reality TV is all the rage. Dozens of new reality shows pop up each season. When the first reality shows came on the scene several years ago, I wasn’t a fan. I thought they were dumb. But within the last two or three years I’ve found some I love. It makes me sick to watch people eat worms and bugs. Sorry, I have a weak stomach! AND...I hate watching people being mean to each other. What does that leave?

The reality shows I like are the ones in which people are getting a chance to achieve their dreams. I find them inspiring and motivating. I’m pursuing a dream myself, the dream of publication. America’s Next Top Model is a show I can relate to. Not because I want to be a model (Ha! are you kidding?) but because these girls have a chance to have their dream career, maybe something they’ve wanted their whole lives. But modeling is a difficult profession to break in to (much the way writing is.) I like watching how hard they work, how much they’re willing to sacrifice to get what they want. But in the end, what's important is talent and skill, and the looks they were born with. Still, only those willing to work the hardest will make it.

Another of my favorite shows is Rock Star: INXS. Again, the show begins with about fifteen talented people who have been chosen from thousands to compete for the ultimate prize. In this case, to be the new lead singer of INXS. What a dream come true for someone. Not for me; I can’t sing. Watching them perform and work so hard to win is truly inspiring. In addition, I love rock music, have always been a fan of INXS. I like picking my favorite contestants based on personality, talent, and style. One contestant did a fantastic performance of the INXS song "Never Tear Us Apart." Have you read the lyrics of this song? Check them out here. Wow, how romantic and passionate! That’s the way my hero and heroine feel about each other. (I find inspiration everywhere.) What are your favorite reality shows and why?

    Vonda,

    Can you help me? I just made a post to my blog and after I republished, the side bar dropped to the bottom of the page. Please help!


  2. Ms. Mika Says:

    I haven't read your post yet, but I will and will post my comment later.

    Oh, by the way I went
    Terry McMillan's book signing today for her latest book, "The Interruption of Everything" What she read, I loved! Once I get the pics developed I will post them!

    Hi Ms. Mika, I see what you mean about your blog. Your menu is at the bottom. I'm not sure how to fix it. I tried to view source to compare yours to mine and see where the code is different but it wouldn't let me. Had you been working on the HTML before it messed up? Or only made a post the regular way? I'm going to make a guess and say it has something to do with the "Read More" link you have at the top. Have you tried removing that?

    I don't watch much TV anymore, but a favorite in reality TV is Extreme Makeover: Home with Ty Pennington. Talk about a tear-jerker! They come in & completely demolish a home, and rebuild something a gazillion times better - for people who have fallen on hard times and really, really need the help. Gives you a warm feeling about mankind, even with all the crap going on in the world.

    That stupid READ MORE code, is driving me crazy!! I put that out there a few days ago and it just won't work correctly1 I'm tried removing it and it won't let me, but I was always able to post and or edit...I just don't know what I'm gonna do...I hate code!
    Why can't this blog service make this stuff easier...more like a webpage? Oh well, thanks anyway!

    I like those tear jerker reality shows too. I just don't like to cry so much so I usually avoid watching them. :-)

    ms. mika, How cool about Terry McMillian. I look forward to the pics. And I hope you get your blog straightened out. I know very little about code myself, just basic HTML.
