It's the end of an era!
I was one of those girls that took the ending of Sex and the City pretty badly.
Those were my friends that I had become so close to for 6 years.
Those were the women I looked up to for advice and guidance through my 20's (though, in hindsight, that was probably a bad idea).
I never thought I'd be hooked on another show again.
Then came GIRLS on HBO.
Lena Dunham? Who the f*ck was Lena Dunham? She was no Sarah Jessica Parker!
But alas, I fell again ... deep.
I even made my husband watch the show (but don't tell him I told you or he'll be so embarrassed!)
According to Wikipedia, the show is described as follows:
An aspiring writer and her three friends, all in their early 20s, together try to make sense of what life has in store for them after living in New York for two years. They're not sure what they want, or who they want it from, and the picture isn't getting any clearer. Hannah thinks she has what it takes to be a successful writer, if only she would write something. She wants a boyfriend without dealing with an actual relationship, and she wants a job without having to work. Marnie is Hannah's best friend, a Type A personality who has a serious boyfriend and an actual job. Jessa is a devil-may-care bohemian whose apparent lack of fear hides her own kind of insecurity. Her cousin, Shoshanna, is an NYU student who would love nothing more than to experience a "Sex and the City" lifestyle. The others tend to underestimate Shoshanna, but she proves to be a sharp source of wisdom.
Since Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City, and now Hannah Horvath were both writers (like me!), I had someone else to relate to.
However, as time went on and Hannah's character developed more, I noticed something: a narcissistic quality that both characters from my favorite shows had.
Am I narcissistic? I'm going to say no, but I'm guessing I'm not the right person to answer that, huh? I also feel that if I'm questioning it, then I'm not. So there. CASE CLOSED!
Either way, now that the show has ended, I've collected my favorite quotes and memes from the show.
