for 5 years, insecure became my “must-see” tv.
i damn near told everyone who didn’t watch to tune in asap. karaoke and i were huge stans that would talk about the showad-nauseam.
i never thought i’d see it come to an end so soon tbh.
there were so many more stories and experiences to explore. black twitter needed another season or two to come alive on sunday nights. the series finale was last night and well… spoilersahead btdubs…
it took one lonely thanksgiving for me to be introduced to season 1 of hbo’s insecure.
it was the same year the show came out but i waited to watch.
i “had seen” everyone tweeting and talking about it,
but i’m usually turned off by too much hype. as i watch this last season for the series i love, i keep asking myself…
i knew tiffany, the character played by amanda seales on insecure, was an aka (alpha kappa alpha) but it never defined her character to me. i didn’t even know the 4 characters went to stanfordtbh.

we watch everyone else making moves,
living these amazing lives,
but we’re still at the starting line or running in the wrong direction. that is how i felt after watching the newest episode of insecure,
for their final season. i legit cried…
i remember it like it was yesterday.
i was home alone,
on 2016 thanksgiving had a chicken in the oven,
and decided to binge “insecure” on hbo.
i was late after all the social media chatter about it.
i became a hardcore stan by the end of that final scene in season 1. you know what scene i’m talmbout. every time i’m dealing with life shit, issa rae knows exactly how i’m feeling.

unlike my other friends,
it has taken me a minute to get my shit together with my insecurities, life,
