OH MY GOSH I AM ONE OF THOSE GIRLS!
While my conscience intention was never to try and imitate Carrie I can't help but notice that I read my writing allowed in my head like she does when she rights. I also ask a ridiculous amount of rhetorical or unanswerable questions. But does Sex and the City give us unrealistic expectations? (See rhetorical question!!)
Most of us writers will not get a job writing a relationship column in New York that helps us afford to buy these:
But like most TV shows Sex and the City gives us a completely unrealistic expectation of what real life is like. And they're not alone. Even our so called "reality TV" shows are scripted and don't at all portray reality (looking at you Kardashians).
So I ask, what is so bad about real life? Sure being able to afford designer shoes would be great, but why am I not supposed to be satisfied with ones from Target? I'll actually answer this one. There is nothing wrong with NOT being a celebrity and only wearing Jimmy Choo's.
While television is entertaining sometimes we need to step back and realize that it's entertainment not real life. We shouldn't compare ourselves or hold ourselves to the standards it sets.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is even if I can't be Carrie Bradshaw, I'm perfectly content just being Hayley.
As Always, Stay Classy
