The New Hulu Show 'Shrill' Is All Too Real For Me But It's Also Amazing

If you haven't seen this show don't walk, run to go watch it now!


Alright y'all please go watch this show. It's funny and cute and sad and oh so true all at the same time. Props to Hulu because they did an outstanding job with this series. This show spoke to me on so many levels it is insane.

For basically my whole life I've been bigger. Obviously, now that I'm working out and watching what I eat I'm losing weight and inches month by month. Even after I lose the weight I want to lose, I will still have a fuller figure and I'm OK with that. I think I was just naturally born with a bigger frame and curves. I will always have them.

Watching this show was honestly like watching my life unfold before my eyes. In the show, Aidy Bryant's character, Annie, is a fun loving, smart and funny young woman. She struggles with seeing her self-worth so despite not seeing her self-worth she dates and sleeps with men who don't treat her right. Hello, Palmer, you went through that phase 3 years ago.

In the show, she is not trying to change her body but she is trying to change her life. Her progression shows her becoming more confident than ever and that speaks levels to me. Now that I am finally becoming the confident women I always wanted to be, I binged the whole show in 24 hours (oops, not sorry). Seriously though, If you've ever been remotely having thoughts like this or you just need a reminder that you're beautiful in every way and you're smart and funny and awesome go binge this series!

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
