I Am Shoshanna

aiiie

 

I am, I really really am.

Since she first graced my little laptop screen, Shoshanna Shapiro was my favourite Girl on HBO’s to-be-cult show Girls. Everyone on the show is my favourite – except Hannah, ugh — but Shoshanna is just the perfect embodiment of all the inner workings that don’t always show.

(*WARNING: SOME SEASON 2 SPOILERS*)

Shoshanna is:

  • All those weirdo times you have when you’re alone and nobody is watching — like air DJing on your stove — except she does it at a crowded house party;
  • All those times you are scorned by a guy/girl, but want to “stay strong” and defiant, so you think of all those things you want to say to that guy/girl. Well, she actually says them.
  • “You may have hurt my feelings, but I have my big girl pants on.” –ย Favourite line of season 2, hands down.
  • Insecurity but security at the same time. Like when she had her outburst about being deflowered but not devalued. You go, girl!
  • MASS HYSTERIA. INNER TURMOIL ABOUT ABSOLUTELY NOTHING AND ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING.
  • Cultish obsessions with popular culture.ย (Maybe this is just a quality I have.)ย Naaaah, I’m pretty sure these obsessions with popular culture is the reason why the Kardashians are still bathing in molten gold.
  • Being kind of a “feminist.” But like, not, like, fully. You know?
  • Wanting to be likeable and friends with everyone. Especially a cool British cousin or a svelte art gallery gal. But not caring if you have a small group of friends. (Does that make sense?)
  • LIKING GUYS AND NOT KNOWING HOW TO DEAL WITH THAT. OR WHAT TO DO. BEING HYSTERICAL ABOUT IT. COMPARING IT TO EVERY ROM-COM, CHICK FLICK TV SHOW AND MOVIE.
  • But being adorable and cute and the girl-next-door, so you attract a certain kind of guy. Hopefully, the good kind. Because you’re a good person.

And those are some of the reasons why I am (the blonde version of) Shoshanna Shapiro.

Mass hysteria and inner turmoil brought to you by the Caps Lock button.
