When I was at college, I didn't watch anything. Basically all I did was go to class, hang out with my friends, go to my meetings, do homework, and sleep.
If I'm being honest, it was kind of a sad existence, and I noticed myself slowly getting into a rut. I wasn't really doing anything I normally did at home, and it was making me homesick.
Now, with all this time on my hands, I was reminded of my love of bingewatching. I have always loved bingeing, but it was always really difficult for me to find a show to stick to. I got super bored really easily, and I very rarely stuck with a series for too long. That being said, I have found a new love. Something that is real, shocking, and sometimes gruesome to watch.
I have always been a cynic, or "realistic" as I like to call it. I notice all of the bad things that go on in the world, I've been that way for as long as I can remember. To me, it's important to make yourself aware of everything that's going on in the world, not just the happy stuff.
Now, that leads me to one of the greatest discoveries that I could have ever imagined: Docuseries. I know what you're thinking, documentaries are boring, why would I ever want to watch a whole series dedicated to true events? Let me tell you, stop thinking like that. Some of these stories are so harrowing, it's impossible to not fall in love with them.
They allow you to see the world in a whole new light, and not all of them are sad. From "Self Made," a story discussing the triumph of Madam C.J. Walker to "Surviving R. Kelly," multiple testimonials of the victims of R. Kelly, there is something for everyone. I gotta tell you, I've watched four docuseries in the past four days, and it's not looking like I'm going to stop anytime soon.
