Happy Friday brunch babes and welcome to another fun 5 Fandom Friday!
This weeks prompt is our favorite fictional teachers so today I decided to share the fictional women who have taught me the most. Some of this is fun, but a bit is serious because these women did impact my life so profoundly
If you read this post you know that I love and think highly of Olivia Pope. Olivia came into my life at a time where I needed to be reminded that I was worth a whole lot. She reminded me to know my worth in both work and relationships – something 20-somethings living in the age of tinder need to be reminded of. We are all worth more than a swipe right! Plus “You Cannot Afford Me” is one of the best lines of all times.
Truthfully, Mindy came into my life recently and I now consider her one of my role models. Both versions of Mindy (real & fiction) are evident that confidence is key, and having a man in your life is not the be all end all. I also love Mindy Lahiri because she is a successful doctor and really represents being an adult, but not having it 100% figured out. Its ok to have most of it together and a few things a mess – that’s life. I am currently reading “Why Not Me” and loving the wisdom and truth Mindy Kaling pours onto the page. Plus her wardrobe is amazing!
Yes I am including Emily Thorne in this. I started watching Revenge literally right before my dad passed away and felt like I had a character to go through the loss of a parent with me. While the show did take some not so great turns, I still appreciate having a character that even in some small way I could relate to at that time.
ROSE TYLER / BAD WOLF
This one character impacted me so much I named my blog after her. Rose was just an ordinary girl who decided that she wanted more. She went on adventures and ended up saving the doctor countless times. She is selfless, loyal, strong, and the kind of woman I strive to be. There was a time that I was wanting more out of life and I looked to what Rose did – she jumped in the T.A.R.D.I.S. and took a leap of faith to create the most amazing life. Thats what I did too, but without a blue box and the madman inside it.
CARRIE BRADSHAW & The Women of SEX AND THE CITY
If I am truthful with myself Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte all helped shape me into the woman I am today. There is a little bit of each of these women in me, even though I am mostly a Carrie. These women taught me the value of friendship, to never give up on love, to kick ass in the workplace, and to go after what you want most in life. Oh how I wish I had all four of these women around today to give all their points of view on the dating world in which we live. These women wore my friends, my teachers, and my inspiration.
“Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course, we wouldn’t fall in love, or have babies, or be who we are. After all, seasons change. So do cities. People come into your life and people go. But it’s comforting to know the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you’re very lucky, a plane ride away.”
