The Awkward Type

Firstly if you have not heard of Insecure then you needs no!! I stumbled across it one day whilst searching for something interesting to watch on Sky demand. Talk about duvet diving, I watched the whole season in one day! I haven’t been this excited about a show like this since Being Mary Jane.

The main character is Issa Rae(a You tube and Web Star) who also wrote and directed the show, plays the main character known as Issa Dee, a modern black women who is a school teacher in California. The show follows her journey trying to figure it all out, the world of life, love, and relationship. Through Issa we see how her world and others is always connected with race, gender, and culture, and the experiences are almost always racy and very blunt. Beside Issa we meet her best friend, who is elegant and upscale Molly(Yvonne Orji) who seems to be a great support, as she tries to keep her on the straight and narrow road of life. Some people may not like the fact it is a very blunt, harsh and racy take on the life of a single black lady but I found it to be gripping, entertaining and modern. I’m sure it will win the hearts of many viewers.

I felt there were definitely  some aspects I could relate to, having been in a relationship where I was not happy and the temptation to seek all that you want in another person is always something that us females have to deal with. Not easy if you have  great chemistry with a friend of the opposite sex! It’s funny how a blast from the past always seems to come back around the time your current situation has it’s testing time. Which we see when Issa runs into an old school friend Daniel.(a bit of eye candy) HBO has not held back on the sex scenes either! Its gets very steamy makes you wonder how real these scenes are, or is it brilliant directing skills and genius computer graphics??!

I think most of us women can admit feeling awkward at some point in our lives! I relay the awkward stage of my life trying out different hair styles and clothes, at points having some memorable wardrobe malfunctions. It didn’t stop there going through the college stage, at that point taking more of an interest in guys and being a lot more self conscious of their opinion.How could i forget those dreaded awkward dates, I could tell you a few stories!! Like having to exit by going to the loo, and asking a friend to make that emergency phone call by texting her the code red message! I do believe that with age and experience, actually correction with age experience we learn to embrace, nurture and deal with our awkward parts. Whether it’s our looks,body image, personalities, or even awkward situations!!
