Every Sunday in my house my roommates & I have “Keeping up with the Kardashians” streaming at 9 p.m. without exception. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve heard the question, “How can you watch that garbage?” That is a very fair question, because it is trash TV… but… I LOVE IT.

I really can’t tell you what it is about the Kardashians that is so intriguing, but intriguing they are. Maybe it’s because their lives are so far removed from anything that would seem normal to us mere mortals, and that makes it entertaining. The same goes for “The Real Housewives” shows.

On Monday nights, we watch “The Bachelor”, an equally ridiculous show about finding love over the course of a few weeks on a television show. How many of these couples go on and actually live happily ever after? Very few. Actually, you can count them on one hand. But it’s entertaining as hell and it’s fun to get invested in each of the contestants, and heck, when it works out, it’s great!

The thing is, no one is watching these shows because they’re trying to learn something. No one mistakes it for educational or worthwhile television. It’s entertaining. That’s literally it. After a long day of reality, it’s really nice to sit down and watch “reality” TV that couldn’t be farther from the real thing. It’s easy and enjoyable. That’s the reason.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
