So, for the record, I believe that the people who say, “I can’t believe you don’t listen to me” are simply making themselves feel better. I do listen and I have my own little list of things and people to which I listen. But I also believe that there is a level of awareness when it comes to listening and reading that I have yet to reach.
Now granted, I had to read a lot of different stuff as a kid. And it was my parents who taught me the difference between listening and reading. But like anyone with a book in their pocket, when my parents were in the middle of a book I’d get distracted and forget that I could read.
I have a good friend who once told me that she has a little list of people who she was taught to listen to. And I am like, “Oh, who do you mean?” Not that I didn’t hear those people, but I didn’t always want to hear them. So, I read a lot of books, as well as listen to music, movies, and TV shows.
When I was in college, I had the pleasure of being taught the difference between listening and reading. And like anyone with a book in their pocket, when my parents were in the middle of a book I got distracted and forget that I could read. I just had to trust my parents that they would listen to my opinions, but I could never get them to read to me.
I think it’s because I was always interested in watching movies and TV shows as well, and I just didn’t want to read books. I think it may have something to do with the fact that I was raised in a household where books were a big part of life. I read books that my mother was reading to me, and I was reading my own mom’s books. I loved to read, and I loved to read about music, and I loved to read about science.
I was also reading my book club books and my personal favorite was my book on the history of science, which I read to my kids about a year ago. I really enjoyed it, and I think a lot of people do. Maybe the same thing is true regarding movies and TV shows, but they tend to be more popular around the holidays and they are generally more watched now than they were back in the day.
Movies and TV are popular during the holidays because a lot of people are trying to catch up on the last few episodes of their favorite shows or movies. When people are watching TV during the holidays, they tend to tune in to the most popular shows and movies, and they can’t get enough of them as they’re all available on the same channel. Movies and TV aren’t exactly new.
Its a shame most people don’t notice this, but when they do, they tend to watch the most popular shows (and movies), but they usually don’t watch the most popular movies (or TV shows). As I mentioned, not many people were watching movies during the holidays, but there was a huge spike in TV viewership.
That was certainly true during the holidays. When we were kids, our parents would often get us into the local theaters and we’d watch the latest shows, and we’d be shocked to discover what we were missing. We watched the “big hits” like Beverly Hills Cop, Beverly Hills Cop II, Beverly Hills Cop III, etc. (a couple years ago we watched the whole new series of Beverly Hills Cop). This year I saw the newest season of Dexter.
It’s interesting that it’s not just the big movies that are on TV during the holidays. A lot of shows like Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead are on both TV and streaming right now. It’s also interesting that the same year I saw the new Avengers movie, they were still on the blockbusters list, along with Batman Vs Superman, and the new Harry Potter.
