Girls Season 2

"I haven't figured out if he's the greatest person or the worst person in the world yet."

Lately, a lot of the social media fuss has been about their dislike of this current season of "GIRLS." Naturally, I wouldn't be myself if I didn't go against what everyone is saying. I personally love this season. The writing is really good. I won't go as far as saying that it's amazing, phenomenal, or anything out of the ordinary. I am a little, well a lottle, (haha I thought that was clever) annoyed with the fact that Hannah is ALWAYS naked and always having sex. Ok! We get that you are one in a very small number of women who actually enjoy their bodies completely. But it's not something that needs to be written into almost every episode of the series.

However, I am impressed with how well the character development is. It's so real. I love how we are able to see the dysfunctions between the child and the parent. So many people have parent issues. We are who we are because of our relationships with our parents. We attract people like our parents and we treat people like our parents have showed or in some cases, didn't show us. I love how we are able to see the breakdown. Hannah clearly has OCD and I love that we are watching it unfold. We all get stressed out about what we are and aren't doing in our careers. Yeah, partying is fun and easy and it seems to get almost ALL of the likes on Instagram, but that's easy. It's attainable. Let's see the struggles, the tears, and the emotional breakdowns THAT WE ALL HAVE AND GO THROUGH! I love how we get to see the relationships. The way that they end and the way that people move on - some faster than others.

That's what needs to be shown. That's what's relatable. That's why Lena Dunham's show is so successful. It's because she knows how to express something that's so familiar to everyone. We all love, we all struggle, we all cry and we all stress. It's not just fun and games and it's not all about relationships! Something that I'm really just fully understanding. Yea I'm tired of being single. Yea I want something real and fun and consistent and blah blah but that's not what life is all about right now and that's ok. It's a relief to come to terms with that. To focus now on my career rather than constantly looking at my phone for the text message that probably will never come.

I'm character developing right now. Really taking the time out to take deeper looks and have deeper conversations about who and what makes me. And taking care of the issue that's at hand. And accepting that the world doesn't end because of certain mishaps.

It's hard but it's not impossible.

Thank the Lord.
