A break from reality!

This happened not too long ago (a month back if I recall correctly) It was a regular day except that it had been raining all day. The household chores were taken care of and I had just finished updating the latest post on my blog. Bored out of mind watching the regular stuff on TV, I switched to Netflix. Maybe a movie would spark my gloomy evening. Keep me entertained for few hours back in time for dinner preps. Hopping between options on Netflix for almost 20 minutes the search finally ended. I hit the play button and started watching the much popular tv series, Gossip Girl. 

Binge watching TV series is something I had only seen people do, never experienced it. After the first few episodes of GG, I knew that was going to change. Drawn away from reality I found myself swept away, completely emerged into the reel lives of these fictional characters. 

I stayed up with my iPad in bed until wee hours of the morning. Viewing episodes back to back. Shut my eyes to sleep only when the battery of the gadget drained. Fiction had obviously taken precedence over real life. All that mattered was what next would happen in the lives of people I didn't even know few days back (to top it they were not even real) Everything else was just so secondary and happening in the background.

 I enjoyed this time-out from reality! I really did. But also had to make sure I got myself back to the real world. It didn't worry me though. I knew it would happen as soon as the series ended.

Fast tracking my way season after season, here I am today! done watching the final episode and pouring my heart out onto the page of my beloved blog. My favorite couple (Blair and Chuck) got their happily ever after ending (just what I had wished for) Their love might have been a work of fiction, but I felt happy for them in real. 

Now its time for me to move on. Bounce back into reality. Doing everything that I should be doing. And I so look forward. :))


P.S : *Never knew I would obssess so much over the character of Chuck Bass. Now that the series has ended, Ed Westwick AKA Chuck Bass you have a die hard fan on Instagram. Please keeping posting! xoxo

Few of my favorite quotes from the series!

  1. I've binged on a TV series far too many times for my own good, lol. It is natural for most people, I guess, when they stumble across a TV show that they start liking late (or after it's ended and dusted!) - which means tons of earlier episodes to catch up on. I binged on SATC (all seasons), Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones (first season), and currently Seinfeld (old school, I know - still gold!). Ahhh, I know it's a terrible waste of time but it's so friggin' unavoidable, lol!
