So, apparently the hit Netflix show “Orange is the New Black” season 3 is going to be released this summer. I’m super excited and eager to catch up the characters that I have grown to love, such as “Crazy Eyes.” I’m glad to hear that the character Brook Soso, who was introduced in Season 2, will be returning. She’s young and she’s mixed. She reminds me of me, though I’m not nearly as talkative as she is.
I think the reason why I love “Orange is the New Black” so much is because the characters are so relatable. No, I haven’t been to jail or prison. But I feel as if the characters are being real and true to themselves. In the episodes, the women gossip, talk, dance, have sex. There are no inhibitions. Anything goes. The women aren’t pretending to be a famous actress or singer or aspiring to win the lottery.
They are real women, trying to get by. They are taking it one day at a time. And I think that is something that we can all strive to learn.
It is important to live for the moment. Life is short. Don’t waste time thinking about what could have happened. Or what will happen. Live for today and be the best that you can be.
