Girl Meets World: Hmm…Okay.

Disney is making a sequel to Boy Meets World called Girl Meets World. It was announced last weekend. After hearing the news, I couldn’t decided. I’ve been wavering back and forth over this topic this whole week. I don’t know why. It’s not even that important. I’ve been reading & watching articles, tweets, comments, rants, blogs, vlogs, video responses, and episodes of Boy Meets World that ended up making me cry like a baby. I was looking for something to influence my opinion and help me get out of this 50/50 zone that I was so conflicted over for some unknown reason. So finally, after being overwhelmed with all the positive vs. negative words I’ve seen, read or heard, I’ve come to a conclusion and that conclusion is this: okay.

It will be okay. It will be okay that Disney wants to do a sequel to Boy Meets World because there can be nothing but good that will come out of it for Boy Meets World. First of all, BMW is done, finished, in the past, a memory, a retro vintage television show that taught me life lessons and made Fridays my favorite day to this day. As a loyal viewer of Boy Meets World, I am honored that one of my favorite shows was remembered and chosen to get a sequel. A lot of the nay-sayers have voiced their rants that “Girl Meets World” will ruin their childhood and drag Boy Meets World through the ground. They pretty much say that Boy Meets World cannot be touched because it is already imperfectly perfect and does not need to be changed. And then, there are those who are overcome with excitement and & anticipation, like being given a big wrapped present and you have all these expectations and hopes for what could be inside.

Sigh…well, I have to admit, I was leaning more towards the “Don’t do it, Disney!” side but I took a step back and thought about all the ways I could see this so okay, here goes my final opinion. I think the nay-sayers should concede, withdraw & support. I think that there are only two outcomes here for us 90s kids who include BMW as a part of our childhood world: 1) If Girl Meets World succeeds, great! I’d be so proud of Michael Jacobs for having another successful show. Translation: Nothing really to do with Boy Meets World, they are two separate shows. They just happen to have the same creator. The other outcome is 2) If Girl Meets World bombs, it really has zero negative effect on Boy Meets World because again, they are two separate shows. If GMW fails, we will just say “Boy Meets World” was better, giving our childhood a boost in cool factor. Think of all the shows that didn’t get revamped, remade or even remembered. They’re pretty much stored up in a locked up trunk of the sitcom library that sits in all of our 90s brains, keys lost and never found. We are lucky to possess the nostalgic memory of BMW and I proudly support Michael Jacobs in creating a new one for the new generation that awaits to possess such a memory of their own.

Honestly, one show really doesn’t have anything to do with the other. They could have marketed this as a completely new show and not mention BMW at all but I feel like they are giving BMW a shoutout, a nod, a well-deserved notable form of recognition if you must. So for me, that’s okay. In the world of creativity, you have to take risks. Like Austin Kleon says, “Steal like an artist.” In this case, perhaps Disney is only borrowing, but eventually, we will get it back and in the same condition, you will see.

My favorite episode is……
Eric Hollywood. If you haven’t seen it, the payoff is in the end. I love that broken wall.

Okay, this one too. The ironic part is that they said Eric made an ugly woman. HA!

Boy Meets World Marathon Part 2 & Jewelry

My BFF and I continued my birthday Boy Meets World marathon over the weekend. We went through the last 3 episodes of Season 5, pummeled through Season 6 and got through the to the middle of Season 7, just barely. The one I was waiting impatiently to watch was “What A Drag.” We both commented on how ugly of a woman Matthew Lawrence made and how gorgeous of a woman Will Friedle made. And yet, in the episode, it was Will who got tagged as the ugly woman and Matthew as the attractive one. Whoa. Either the writers didn’t have their glasses on or it just had to be written this way. I mean seriously, look at their faces.

Will as Chantal *whistle*

Matt as Lala *shudder*

Oh lord. What is this deal with me falling for guys who look good as women? I must be drawn to pretty boys. I guess that’s why I like Will so much. Not that I only like him if he looked good as a woman but just that I love that he was such a good sport about playing the part and played it well, he did. Oh Will, you are just too much talent.

This reminds me, I’m really hoping I get a chance to meet Will’s BFF, Jason Marsden, at Comic-Con this year! It’ll be my 1st time there & while I’m sure it’s a prety big event, I don’t think I’ll have that hard of a time finding him like my friends think I will. He seems like a cool guy who likes meeting fans. I really hate celebs, or just general people for that matter, who come with egos and I can detect egos pretty easily. There’s a very fine line between ego & self-confidence. Once I sense it, you will have either lost my respect or gained it. Anyway, here is the episode we watched.

“What A Drag”

While I was enjoying myself with this marathon, I also began making my first real jewelry pieces that I plan to sell on Etsy. I created an Etsy channel called AmVicious. I thought about a lot of names for my new Etsy business and the reason I came up with AmVicious was that I felt it was a play on words for my ambitious personality. And if anyone knows my creative side, they would know I love to play with words. So far, I’ve only made a few earrings but as I go along and become more inspired, I will create more. I’m really very excited about making jewelry. I get inspired by the people surrounding me and by celebrities I imagine wearing them. It motivates me to continue pursuing this dream. One day, I hope to be my own boss with no one to answer to. :0) Baby steps.

Here are the earrings I made over the weekend. Nothing fancy but they’re definitely earrings I would wear myself. I hope that one day, I will develop a certain style that pertains to me.
