Nobody tells you that there will be times in your life where you go through daily motions, there is nothing exciting about them, you’ll have nothing extraordinary to tell people who ask how your week was, you just wake up, do as you do, go to bed and then repeat until further notice.

I feel as though this is an important thing for people to understand, because, especially nowadays there is so much pressure on people to live extraordinary lives, that we all know that we’ll have great days, and we all know we’ll have horrible days. We will have mindblowingly cool things happen sometimes, and sometimes our lives will fall into shattered pieces and we then have to pick them up and fix it. The cool things make us interesting, the bad things make us strong, and vice versa.

You won’t, however, get anywhere without those boring days. The days you just go to school, go to work, work on homework, then go to sleep and hopefully fit a meal or two in there. These days are important, and they don’t make you a bad person, and they aren’t an indication that you are boring and your life is headed for shit. It simply means that you have found a comfort zone, and there will come a time where you won’t have that anymore, which is exciting and scary, but through all those mind numbingly dull days, you learned to be patient.

Just a few thoughts…

Underrated/Underappreciated showsHarper’s Island (2009)

Why you should watch it:

↪ Harper’s Island is an addictive 13-episode mini-series unlike any show you have ever experienced. A group of family and friends have gathered to celebrate a wedding, and soon find out that there is a killer among them. At least one character is killed off each episode, narrowing down the possible suspects and leaving the remaining wedding guests in a fight for survival. It is a very well-done murder mystery and it will keep you guessing until the very end.

Watch it on Netflix
