What’s Your Reality?
Celebrity couples. They are everyone’s dream relationship, right?! I mean look at Jay-Z and Beyonce… hangin’ with the Obamas, singing at the Inauguration and the Super Bowl! Oh, and don’t forget Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. It’s about time they got together, geesh! But what about Chris Brown and Rihanna? Whether you agree with them getting back together or not, its happening… right now… and its in your face, on your TV every day…
Which brings me to my next subject… reality TV. You see people doing just about everything to get on camera these days: fighting, drinking, doing drugs, and having sex. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, it’s just a click of a button away.
It’s hard to know what’s right and wrong, or even real and fake, when you are dealing with popular media. What’s even tougher is when you start comparing yourself and your life to what you see on TV. Do you find yourself wanting to look like the perfect people you see? Dress in the designer clothes that everyone wears? Well you are not the only one who feels that pressure. So come talk to real people just like you. Share ideas and feelings about what’s real and what’s fake, what’s right and what’s wrong. Let’s talk about YOUR reality right here in Ypsilanti.
“The YPSI Reality” – the first Wednesday of every month at 5 p.m. here at the Corner Health Center.
