Scandal

Apparently Scandal is a really good show. I’ve never seen it. But I have an aunt that has viewing parties, I just hear people talking about it, and I see it quite often on facebook. I have absolutely no clue what it’s even about, but I assume something about scandals…or maybe just one big scandal, naturally.

So I work at a restaurant, and the other day I checked up on one of my tables while they were having a conversation about the latest Scandal episode. These were two little older white ladies, as cute and friendly as could be. They asked if I watched Scandal, and when I replied no, they commenced telling me all about it and how I should start watching.

There’s one thing I really love about older people. And that’s their lack of a filter. Old people pretty much say whatever they want. It doesn’t matter whether their words were malicious or harmless, you do nothing, because old people do what they want.

So back to these ladies. They raved and raved about Scandal and they didn’t just say I needed to watch the show. One of the women said to me, “You have to watch the show! You have a duty to your…black ‘sistas’ to see it!”

Duty..to my….black sistas? Yes, sistas, not sisters. I don’t get offended over things like that, it’s really funny to me. I just wonder sometimes how people end up saying offputting things so nonchalantly. I am black, but I don’t personally identify myself as any individual race. People ask me “what I am” so much that now I just say ‘other.’ Was it because I’m like…diet black that she felt comfortable saying anything? I don’t know, it’s not important I guess. But those ladies were cute, even though they threw me off with that. Happy things.

An Introduction, I guess…

Hello world. My name is Stormy, welcome to my blog.

I figure I should share a bit about myself, or at least what I’m doing here making a blog. I am a current college student majoring in Media Studies and Production with a concentration in Emergent Media. That’s pretty much a fancy way of saying I want to work for the Internet but I’m not smart enough for coding and tech-y language input. I’m not exactly sure what to do with it, because it’s kind of a study preparing you for jobs that nobody knows they need yet. But I would find it pretty neat to be a social media correspondent, so that’s what I’m aiming for. Somehow, I have no experience doing much in the media arts though, so I decided to take learning into my own hands. So here I am on WordPress, learning the ropes.

I honestly have no clue what will become of this blog. I’ll probably be writing random things from my day, random deep thoughts, music I’m feeling at the moment, or any current obsessions. Maybe some posts about my cat.

Okay, that’s a lie, I’ll probably end up with a shameful amount of posts about my cat.

So I’m figuring it out as I go, and please, feel free to join me on my journey. I will make an effort to post something at least once every week. I suppose I’ll end things here. Happy things!
