Real World Segovia 2009

Real World Segovia

Have you ever seen the television show on MTV, the Real World? Of course you have, everyone has seen it. You dont want to watch it, because its dramatic and totally scripted, but you catch the reruns and end up watching it for an entire Saturday…or at least I have…ANY way, this trip is just like that. Minus the cameras, the script, and the tons of viewers at home.

How is it like the Real World? Well let’s see…the tagline of the show is “This is the true story… of seven strangers… picked to live in a house…work together and have their lives taped… to find out what happens… when people stop being polite… and start getting real…The Real World.”

This is exactly what happens here. You take 18 people, put them in the same town and make them get to know each other and interact closely for six weeks. You have different personalities, different agendas, different religions, different views, etc. It’s definitely an interesting experience. What you dont get to see, because this is not a tv show is the butting of heads. the love affairs, the arguments, the friendships, and the eye opening experiences. We have all types of people, complex and different at different times…wild, calm, smart, cocky, annoying, independent, moody, kind, funny, gay, straight, manipulative, honest, etc. etc.

It’s definitely a learning experience. You have to self reflect on how things go with others, how you view things that are going on, and how to be an adult in this situation or how to continue to be young and restless. Stay tuned for more episodes…only a few left, and the finale is always the best!
