Here I am serially watching this show, have you heard of it- it’s called New Girl. It’s about a girl named Jess who moves in with three male roommates who are all uniquely and vastly different and all have a goofy quirk in common. I thought it’d be so much fun to correlate the ways I’m like Jess, because as I watched I saw so many similarities! Maybe as I explain you’ll see what I mean. Do you have similarities with her? What did I miss or skip over that you see in Jess?
She never gives up:
If she’s in trouble or in a sticky situation, she finds a way out or creates an exit strategy easily. She relies on her friends and her intuition to get through it. She thinks through her outcomes and chooses the one truest to herself.
She doesn’t apologize for who she is. She is weird and quirky. Her mannerisms are off the cuff and just unexpected. Giving people the ‘finger’ or creating funny faces or silly voices just happens in the world of Jess and that’s something I emulate.
She’s always there for her friends:
When her friends are in trouble, sad or happy about something- she’s right there experiencing it with them. Really she wants to be immersed in their lives and be counted on as a true comrade. Close to me, are my friends that are more like family- I love them and I always say ‘family isn’t always blood’. This just goes to show that’s true.
She is herself-without apologies:
When things go wrong or something is surprising to others with her oddball personality- she isn’t ashamed or shy about who she is. Similar to the point I made above she is proud of being unique and in tune with her one-ness.
She has a plan for everything:
Figuring out her world especially when she’s in a bind is a quality that is big with Jess. Finding a way out of a predicament or awkward situation. On a daily basis there’s something that has to be fixed or worked out, someone needs a talk or rescuing so here’s where her skill breaks out. I try to always come to my friends aide and I’m always telling everyone if I’m not physically available I’m always here to talk or communicate with them and offer support in some other way.

Hello again! Are you there? Oh good, I thought I might’ve lost ya. I was supposed to post yesterday but I just couldn’t bring myself to it after the madness that truly was #election2016- I can’t guys. No rant here but man oh man, I’m whirling…Well so I wanted to share something different and upbeat. I hope you like this and leave me a comment down below telling me who your favorite youtubers are and if you have a channel- leave it below! Thanks for reading and I hope you’re holding up with everything going on.
In my spare time I love to watch shows and movies on Netflix and it’s my favorite self care agenda. There’s so many that I watch to choose from that I thought I should share with you. These are documentaries honestly but I’ve been really into them lately and all these shocking truth stories are riveting. I hope you like my suggestions.
This is a documentary about the assault & imminent murder of a minority Mexican man in a primarily small town white town in the south. The town backed them up and almost no fault was to blame the young boys who did it and the authorities who covered it up. It is a gross view of our countries grave justice system.
Who took Johnny?
An investigation of a cold case tries to determine what became of Iowa paperboy Johnny Gosch, who disappeared 30 years earlier. A tragic story of Johnny, a boy taken from his small hometown and his parents relentless search to find his kidnapper and bring them to justice.
Audrie & Daisy
Two personal stories about two girls sexually violated by people they once knew and the fallout that came from it, the trauma and the aftermath of dealing with life after being assaulted. Very sad, honest recollection of these girls stories and moving scenes true to scenario.
It’s a moving story about a woman named Kitty Genovese who was killed in front of 38 strangers who did nothing. It was the story to break the newspapers and has been hidden in the past for generations. Her brother conducted a story about her loss and what transpired because of it- like the 911 system itself so folks could report suspicions right away anonymously.
Finding Vivian Maier
A biological timeline about a nanny who had many secrets involving her identity and her hidden talent- photography and art. Follow along while a guy who stumbles upon her things goes digging into her life to make her known for more than just being a invisible nanny.
Kids for Cash
A scandal/conspiracy about Judge Civarella and Judge Monahan who supposedly sold kids to a private juvenile camp for cash kickbacks, The judges got sucked up in the mess and this is the story about the kids who were victims of the triangle of the system mess. Another sad case about our flawed justice system.
I hope you’ll check all these out! I really enjoyed them and I think you will too.
I’d love if you left me a comment or a list of some Netflix or Hulu favorites you have- maybe I haven’t seen them. I hope you love the movies/documentaries I’ve chosen for you.
