Because of my obsession with everything British, I started reading the daily Mail and other British tabloids (of course I also combined the British thing with my obsession for celebrity gossip, which I’m actually trying to cut down on). I heard about this show, because the cast mates were in their tabloid articles. I became intrigued. I researched Essex, which caused me to believe that this show would be the British version of our “Jersey Shore”. Actually it’s more like a British version of “The Hills” (read: soft scripted). But much more risqué, and entertaining, in my opinion, because The Hills sucks.
I started watching some short clips on YouTube. Didn’t think it was that great but I was still determined. Then I came across three full episodes of the beginning of season two on YouTube. I got hooked. I got sucked into this show for hours today with no guilt and no triggering beyond the wish that I had more money to get my hair and nails done. That actually motivated me to move forward with things so that I have money to get my hair and nails done, something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately.
But apparently YouTube decided that it was copyright infringement to post full episodes, so now I’m stuck, left hanging here with my addiction to both everything British and reality TV, so conveniently combined into one show, unsatisfied. *Sigh*
Somebody help me. How can I watch the show? I’m starting to panic… 😉
In other news, I actually have work to do, so I’m going to do that right now. It’s a potential entrepreneurial thing, crazy, but could be real. I felt so awesome this week having office work to do. It made me see how healthy, productive, and motivated I will really be when I have a focus for my energy and brain power. SUCH a strong motivator. For someone like me, being busier is TOTALLY healthier.
