Born This Way

This show sneaked up on me. After watching Married at First Sight (another favorite show) I happened to keep the tv on A&E and this fabulous show came on. That was it!

What I love the most about this show is how regular their lives are.

I don’t personally know anyone with down syndrome, so I hadn’t the slightest idea what everyday life is like for people with this disability. When I see Megan dealing with her long distance relationship, Steven and Sean learning to be roommates together, Cristina missing her fiance, or Elena feeling lonely amidst all the couples (even though she is happy that her friends found love), I realize that their daily troubles are pretty much the same as everyone else’s. They may react to some things differently, like crying when they found out that one of their group is pre-diabetic, but they’re just people pursuing their dreams.

I also really love their sense of humor. These kids (young adults) are SO funny and so full of life!

Not to mention, there were a couple of episodes where they visited my home country Trinidad and Tobago! How awesome is that!

Little Women: LA!

How addictive is the TV show Little Women?!!!

I must admit that my granny is the one who got me into this show. She visited me for a couple of weeks and we watched it together. Now I’m hooked! Thanks granny!

I think I prefer Little Women: LA to the other spin-offs (New York and Atlanta), but don’t get me wrong, I watch ALL of them!

Terra is probably my favorite person on the show. She’s so sassy and stylish! And baby Penny is so adorable!

Briana is cool as a cucumber. I admire how she is able to keep it together amidst all the controversy surrounding her marriage.

Jasmine is the voice of reason. She tries her best to see everyone’s point of view before reacting.

There is only one word to describe Tonya: Boss! Not because she calls herself the boss, but because she is! She goes after her dreams and has no reservations in letting others know how she feels – whether she’s right or she’s letting you know she’s wrong.

Elena is like a little bit of all the other girls combined, she’s empathetic, but will also let you know how she feels once she has the gist of the situation. Her twins are so handsome!

Christy….let’s just say I’m on team Terra. But I will say that Christy is a great mom!
