It’s What I Do…

I am passionate about many things in my life.  Two of my most intense passions are obsessing over dogs, specifically my dog, and watching reality television.  I believe either of these ideas would make for an entertaining blog.

Ever since I could speak I would ask my parents to open our home to a second dog, because one was never enough, as I’m obsessed with dogs. The dream of owning two dogs at the same time never happened.  Approximately three years ago my very intelligent dog passed away and in May 2015, my family adopted in a cognitively impaired dog.  We named him Biscuit, after Biscuit in the children’s books.  Like Biscuit in the children’s books, my dog enjoys going on various adventures.  Therefore I think that it would be so fun to blog about my dog’s life and his weird antics, as I am passionate about all dogs, but especially mine.

The other passion that I have in my life is “trash television.”  I find that when one is a very academic person they need brain breaks.  For many people this can be exercise, reading, hanging out with friends, or all of the above.  While to some people reality television may seem mind numbing, but I find it relaxing.  Some of my favorite relaxing television shows include The Bachelor and its spinoffs, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, WAGS and its spin-offs, Second Wives Club, and Dance Moms.  While many of these “reality” television shows draw criticism for being scripted, they are still successful.  The other idea that I have for my blog is to assess what makes these television shows successful and why so many people enjoy following them. 

I am a very passionate person, and love dogs, especially mine, and reality television, thus I would love to blog about one of my passions.
