Where do I start? Where do I begin? Aside from having an unnecessarily long list of bday events, 32 is already teaching me so many things. Or maybe this is just everything I learned from 31.
I LOVE PRETTY IN PINK! My love for this movie grows every time I watch it. Even though I didn’t go to an all white high school exclusively made up of rich cool kids and lower class outcasts (hipsters), I still feel like this movie speaks to my soul. For one, it’s a goddamn fairy tale rom com. It has all the ingredients; boy meets girl, boy courts girl, boy disses girl, girl gets empowered, boy apologizes, they live happily ever after. What more could you ask for?
I remember my 25th birthday like it was yesterday; I had a full time job working at a law school, no real life goals, and it would go down in….Blackberry messenger. I was single, sexy, and free, as Mya put it. I had my birthday at a local lounge complete with bottle service, me dancing on a stage, and of course me drunkenly falling off that stage. There was so much planning that went into it; picking a venue, a dress, hair, make up, and a photographer. My 25th bday was like getting ready for the Grammy’s, which also happens to fall on my bday weekend.
So I was thinking about Donald Trump this morning. I know, I know, let’s not give this senile old man any more attention. But you have to hand it to him, he’s got some serious confidence. Confidence that I’m sure has got him as far as he’s gotten in the presidential race and with hot Russian women. I sometimes wish I had that kind of confidence, the confidence of a rich white man. Confidence so strong that’s it’s
borderline delusional. How does one get that? Well as an aspiring TV writer I think it’s important to have someone to look up to, to emulate, to follow in their footsteps. For example, Tina Fey (my idol) went to Second City, so I took some courses at Second City. Now, if I want to have the confidence of the Trump I should follow in his footsteps as well. So I decided to Wikipedia him and see what steps led him to being the most confident, unattractive, unapologetic, asshole to be in the running for our next president.
