Late Night Blogging with Mary: Part 29

Once upon a time, I started this blog because I was going to college and I wanted to document the most mundane of adventures. Did I ever really do that? Not really. It has been three and a half years of rants, thought vomit, out of this world adventures, and sometimes just straight non-sense.

Yesterday, I hit 500 followers. I didn’t cry or shout like I thought I would (well I was at work) but I did get teary eyed. a little shaken and quite frankly a little overwhelmed. That’s a lot of people my friends.

Anyway, so thank you for that. It’s very moving.

Speaking of moving, I have been watching “Girl Boss” which is slightly inspiring. Like Sophia is a one-of-a-kind type of gal who doesn’t always do what’s best and not always what I would do. However, she is quite the go-getter, which is admirable. The show starts off with Sophia (the main character) going on about how being an adult sucks; which is a sentiment I am starting to sympathize with.

While applying for many, many jobs I have found it to be barely bearable. I’m honestly so over it. It’s so boring and excruciatingly painstaking. However, I shall press on and find a job that will do until I have a million children and can start up my mommy blog.

So here’s just a short little LNBM for now. Still working on the re-brand. I’d say by June it’ll be full swing.


TV Shows that Teach

I’m a terrible binge watcher, it’s awful. I will sit and watch hours of a particular show instead of doing something I’m supposed to do. Currently I’m rewatching “The Office” and it’s makin me think about TV shows that teach us things.

  1. Modern Family: “Modern Family” teaches how love is unconditional, it literally shows every type of love possible and how perfect that can be. It shows imperfections in family, yet how those little things are what makes family great.
  2. The Office: “The Office” is an example of the types of people you will come across with in your life. I also think the relationships amongst the characters display a variety of relationships that someone can encounter, but everyone looks for a love like Jim and Pam’s.
  3. Parks and Rec: Can you say women empowerment? If you want to look up to someone look up to Leslie Knope. A little quirky, but hilarious and smart. She quickly takes over the town of Pawnee and I think she has the power to take over the world.
  4. New Girl: I mean who doesn’t want to live with three attractive guys? Not me actually. I think this show displays struggles not only through relationship, but in each characters’ personality as well. I haven’t watched it in a while, but I remember thinking “wow I learned something”.
  5. Private Practice and Grey’s Anatomy: Each character has their own story line, their own background, their own problems. Their stories interconnect and solve the problems of one another, they’re there for each other and help each other out.

What’s your favorite show that has taught you a lesson? I think Degrassi could maybe even be popped up on my list. Maybe I’ll pick this up again another time.
