Well, hello everyone. I have a few free minutes of time here so I figured why not pursue an updated journal? Lots of stuff going on. Been working as hard as I can (to mainly get out of debt) and moving forward in life. I've had a grandfather pass away since the beginning of the year and a boyfriend who I deeply felt for up and leave me. It's been hard to manage, but I'm getting there.
With that being said, I'm facing this spring after a very hard winter (not only weather-related) as a new beginning in my life. Nothing is keeping me here in NY. I might move, I might stay, I might pursue other adventures. Who knows? What I do know is that I'm okay and that I'll continue to be okay. I have friends that have shown their true colors at not being true friends and ones that have. I thank them everyday within myself to never forget all that they have done.
Onwards, right? Onwards to what's new, what's exciting, what's positive? Onwards to find what I deserve!
Thanks for reading!
TV Series Review: The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Season 1
Created by: Andy Borowitz - Seeing as how I grew up watching The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air I found it in my "hold onto your youth" interest to buy the first season of the show. I had forgotten how hilarious it was! We find a young youth by the name of Will Smith unceremoniously removed from his home in southern Philadelphia by his mother who is concerned for his well being. He is ousted from his friends, his culture, his way of life, to be thrown into the upper percentile of Bel-Air living. His aunt, Vivian Banks, has agreed to take him under her care to see that he gets a good education and stays out of trouble. Together with her family they attempt to welcome Will into their home, most likely with the expectation that they will be similar to them or grow to be similar to them. This is far from the case. What ensues is a hilarious commentary on racial culture, family, beliefs, identity, and about the white supremest society that had "Black Power" society turning to face the opposition.
The actors that comprise the family are a simply perfect fit for one another and work well to produce such a fantastic comedy. They have multi-layered personalities that entice and intrigue us into relating to them and the issues that are presented in stark relief of a humorous background. Often the show borderlines on pure slapstick, but more often than that it balances precariously on the edge of racial inequalities and a healthy dose of laughter. To balance the slapstick there are also times where a seriousness prevails over the entire show that either forces us to learn life lessons or to try and teach and instruct on how the United States regards African American citizens.
A purely laugh-out-loud comedy that is still relevant, despite the early 90s clothing style, to today! www.mapservices.org/myguestmap…
