Back in the fall when I was filled with optimism about the new school year and my ability to handle it I bought the first two seasons of Star Trek: The Original Series, categorizing it as a coping strategy. My analysis was that part of my failure in the past had been due to a lack of television, most specifically my favorite shows, because movies were too long in duration, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars was too short. So I bought Star Trek: The Original Series because I had yet to encounter an episode I disliked (still haven’t found one that I can’t sit through in The Original Series) and it was a happy medium in duration. Throughout the fall and winter I watched many episodes in that vein. First going through the second season in order of airing, then going through the first season in order of airing, then going through both season in chronological order. But once I finished that I stopped watching them and I’d say this would be about a couple weeks ago. Now I think this was a mistake. After all it was just a few weeks ago that everything started to unravel again and it got really bad a couple weeks ago. This may be coincidental but the possibility of a correlation at least is hard to ignore even if it likely isn’t causal. So in addition to my walks (which I just got back from one and found it quite refreshing) I shall also endeavor to keep watching an episode of Star Trek: The Original Series most days. To this end, I have created a Microsoft Word document of my favorite Star Trek: The Original Series episodes so that I will be able to enjoy the experience to its fullest with a quick reference list.
