The main characters are usually rich, beautiful, and glamorous. Somehow, on the show, they still have so many problems. Their love triangles and murder mysteries always keep the show going. But despite the problems, so much of middle-aged America still wants to be those charactes because they are rich and beautiful. People are obsessed and enamored with soap operas. Have you ever watched "Super Fun Soap Weekend" on ABC? The fans get SO into the show.. it's almost scary. I wonder if the actors ever get scared with how obsessed the fans are. Try spending two minutes on a soap message board and you'll see what I mean.
I don't bring this up for any reason in particular other than I am watching One Life To Live right now.. lol. I'm not obsessed, but it's fun to watch. This soap hardly has any sex scenes compared to the other soaps, which I love 'cause I don't get into all that. I just want John and Natalie to get together. Lol.
Anyhow.. it looks like I'll be in Alabama longer than planned. I suppose I should try and make some friends and ties here. Where should I start? I haven't had to make friends in a looong time, and the only friend I've ever made on my own is Amanda and that was when I was like, three. Most of my other good friends have come along because of someone I know or because they pursue the friendship.. I usually just stand waiting for someone to talk to me. And it's weird because I don't have this huge social phobia anymore like I used to.. I guess I just need to let go and be the person outside that I KNOW I am on the inside.. confident and free-spirited.
