It's easy to get depressed: watch the news, search Twitter or Facebook, and you'll find terrible things that make you want to get back in bed and cover your eyes. I like to see positive things, and on television that can be hard to find. A couple of years ago I started watching American Ninja Warrior, and now I've started watching a new show, Spartan:Ultimate Team Challenge. They both make me feel good when I'm done watching them. Even though it's person against person, contestants on Ninja Warrior encourage each other, and truly appear happy when others succeed. The stories they do on some of the contestants are amazing: a contestant with just one leg, a contestant with MS who wants to raise awareness and encourage other MS sufferers. And what the women can do on the course is incredible! Those obstacles are built for men, yet a lot of women can compete with the best of them. The Spartan race show is people working in teams, and it's inspiring to see people dog tired, yet carry (sometimes literally) their teammates to victory. If you want to see some positivity, Monday night's on NBC will do it. They air back to back. I record them if I can't watch them, which means I usually record and watch it later.

I rarely watch tv even though last night I watched the original Parent Trap and stayed up longer than I had planned on. As for negative stuff on Facebook, I get a mix of both negative and positive. For example, I shared a memory yesterday from 2 years ago that was so funny, I watched it many times, it was a stress reliever.

Now that summer is just about here, I'm waiting for Big Brother to start up again. That show usually keeps me laughing and very entertained. I always forget my problems while it's on. I can't wait to see what kind of wacky cast they've put together for this summer!
