Comeback

I know it’s been a while since I last posted. I am truly sorry to have left you stranded out here without any meaningful content from me. However, I would also like to point out that you had a part in this as you have left me feeling uninspired with nothing to satirize. Amidst the current political climate and chaos that is our country, I’ll admit I’ve been a tad too disheartened and nervous to release any attempts at humor. Pair that with laziness and bam, blogless. But we need comedy now more than ever because if you’re laughing you cannot be crying. Although it isn’t unheard of to cry from laughter at my writing. It is that powerful. Joke #1, check! I’m not saying I need constant positive affirmation but I also wouldn’t hate it and I do need it. That said, once you finish reading this, do go find some comedy.

I wanted to do something slightly different with this comeback post. Is it a comeback if it hasn’t been that long and no one has asked for it back? At the risk of sounding desperate, don’t abandon me yet. This particular blog post is an inside look into the inner workings of my mind while writing a blog post. (**UPDATE upon completing this post, I must let you know that it took a turn toward the end and it is no longer about what I just said it’s about. Full transparency, check! OK CONTINUE**) Often I gift people with things they did not want/ask for. I invite you to peer in and observe what goes through my head while I write. What a terrifying invitation. But writing is really re-writing, right? Write? Wright? Occasionally I repeat words in my head in all their, there, they’re various forms. Mark of a genius? You tell me.

Transition. So back to my point. I have relied on current TV shows to be my source of inspiration. Whenever I watch a new show or movie, I immediately become angry because I have thought up its exact plot and I wonder why I didn’t just write it down? To be fair, that is actually true for maybe 1 show or movie I’ve ever seen, (it was “No Strings Attached” and if you didn’t come up with that plot before the movie came out, I don’t trust you) but I think it every single time. Like, Katie, you wrote, directed and produced this movie and/or show a thousand times and you’re not making any sort of back-end off your ideas. WRITE DOWN YOUR THOUGHTS DUMBASS. But then I do write down my thoughts and these are them.. Update – financial situation remains unchanged.

I am going to share my possibly controversial opinions of the most recent shows I’ve seen. If you’re thinking I didn’t ask for this, well I didn’t ask for an energizingly sunny disposition either but I am burdened by it every single day. Let’s start off strong: Pretty Little Mamas on MTV. This show is a classic. Well it was a classic. Until it disappeared. I am confused and hurt and I need answers as to why MTV is trying to pretend the show never existed. They deleted both current episodes and then quietly added them back without explanations as to why the next episode didn’t air when it was supposed to. I can’t even turn to Instagram – the universal go-to in times of reality TV crises – because everyone involved went silent. I feel betrayed, especially since The Bachelor won’t be back until 2019 and this season will be an uneventful chore to watch anyway, so I have this gaping, reality TV-sized hole in my heart and I don’t know what to do.

I did not realize how emotionally torn up I was until I began the previous paragraph, and I feel that I must end the post here. However, since I did say “…opinions of the most recent shows (plural)…” I’ll mention a few others. I just started watching Westworld and honestly it’s fine. Calm down. I prefer You’re The Worst and I would’ve liked another season of Great News. I understand that these shows are not related nor should they be grouped in an impression as if they are. Hey, that’s a thought/the inner workings of my mind. I guess I was right about the intention of this post! Moral of the story: I’m always right, regardless of context.
