4 Reasons Why I Prefer Watching Movies To TV Shows

One reason is that TV shows are too long. Some TV shows have a lot of episodes and seasons. Later on, I am going to wish that the TV show ended as soon as possible.


People watch movies and TV shows. Which one is better? I prefer movies to TV shows.

Why I do prefer movies? One reason is that TV shows are too long. Some TV shows have a lot of episodes and seasons. Later on, I am going to wish that the TV show will end as soon as possible. I mostly finish short TV shows. The short ones range from twelve to twenty-five episodes. A movie can range from one to three hours. Some movies are series. At least they are not long like TV shows. That is good for me because the movie will wrap up after one to three hours. TV shows, on other hand, do not end in one episode. I have to keep watching until the last episode. However, the last episode might be episode one thousand or one million.

Another reason is that the plot in TV shows often changes. After one season, the story is no longer the same because of new characters and new changes in the characters’ presence, personality, or feelings. At least movies will ensure that the plot is consistent as best as possible.

The third reason is that I can watch movies anytime and once. I have to watch new episodes of TV shows every day. If it is aired on TV, then I have to watch new episodes once a week. Watching episodes every week and once a week can be mind-boggling.

Here is the last reason. The fun part about watching movies is watching them at a movie theater. We cannot watch TV shows at the movie theater. Friends and family can watch the movie with me at the movie theater. Nighttime will be the best time, especially if it is opening night.

Do you prefer watching movies or TV shows?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
