So Damn Good...

There are few things that make me happier than smart, healthy-looking women on the small screen.  Yes, I am talking about Girls and the amazing Lena Dunham.  There has been so much written about Lena, the creator/writer/director, so I'll spare you all my amateur television critique and just say I think the show is bad ass.

I see myself a bit in each character.  I see sleeping with a boy who doesn't treat you all that well, always trying to lose 10 pounds, struggling with the boredom of the nicest guy, being a bit of a prude, and suffering from severe wanderlust.  You see, I am all those women.  It really just depends on the day.  Today I'm wearing navy and black, trying to squeeze it all in, do the best possible work for my clients, send the perfect flirty text, and stay away from that third cup of coffee.

I am in constant fear of it all falling apart, of really letting someone get close to me, of tripping in front of my date, of disappointing my parents, of forgetting a birthday, of losing my wallet, of passing up "my person" because he doesn't fit the mold I created in my head.  So I get it.  I'm in my late twenties and I don't have it all figured out; or any of it figured out really.  I just want to be happy.  That much I know.

Oh and this quote from the show makes me so, so, so happy:  "...when I look at you a Coldplay song plays in my heart..."
