Thanks to Netflix I have been re-watching one of my favorites, That 70s Show. After the Hubs gets home from work and before he leaves for school we watch a few episodes together; squeezing in time for each other before it’s time to say goodbye for the night.
We recently watched an episode where the audience learns ‘Donna’ likes to write and wants to possibly pursue a career in journalism. It got me thinking about how many characters in my favorite TV shows were or wanted to be journalists.
Hmmm, maybe subliminal messaging just turned a new leaf? Where my conspiracy theorists at? Just kidding, #aintnobodygottimeforthat
1. Rory Gilmore – Gilmore Girls
2. Phoebe Halliwell – Charmed
3. Carrie Bradshaw – Sex And The City
4. Clark Kent – Superman
5. Sabrina Spellman – Sabrina The Teenage Witch
6. Robin Scherbatsky – How I Met Your Mother
7. Donna Pinciotti
8. Kermit – Sesame Street
9. Rebecca Katsopolis – Full House
10. Harriet M. Welsch – Harriet The Spy
I’m not sure Harriet counts, officially. But we can categorize her as an investigative reporter in the elementary school department. This movie was one of my all-time favorites growing up. You’d have to ask my Ma how she managed the re-runs.
I’m sure plenty of other kids watched the same television shows growing up and connected with the same characters, and most probably didn’t want to pursue a career in writing. Personally, I can help but feel I might have been drawn to these characters for a reason and if anything, it’s another sign I might need to keep me motivated.
Maybe destiny really is written in the stars.
