Grown-ish

Hello Guys!

I hope you all had a really good President’s Day break. Also, I want to apologize for not posting last week, but I was feeling really sick, so I decided to take a break and recharge.

So here we go…

This week I am going to talk about a show that is somewhat new. Freeform released the first episode on January 3, 2018, but I stumbled upon it just a few weeks ago, and here is how: I started watching a show named Black-ish (really good btw), that has been around for a while. It has I think four seasons, and it is really funny. Days later when I was about to finish it, I started scrolling down Hulu looking to see if there was anything new that looked interesting. And that is when I saw it. “Grown-ish,” a spin-off of Black-ish.

Grown-ish is a show that follows the life of the Johnson’s family oldest kid Zoey as she begins her college experience. She has graduated high school and moved out of her parent’s house and is now ready to start the next stage of her life.

Genre: Sitcom

Cast:

Yara Shahidi: Zoey

  • Super stylish
  • Driven
  • Eager for new experiences
  • Amicable

Aaron Jackson: Trevor Jackson

  • Handsome
  • Wants to make a change in the world
  • Interested in Zoey

Ana Torres: Francia Raisa

  • Zoey’s roommate
  • Has a hard time fitting in at the beginning

Nomi Segal: Emily Arlook

  • Zoey’s friend
  • Free spirit

Luca Hall: Luka Sabbat

  • Guest stars constantly
  • Good fashion sense
  • Free Spirit

This show is one that even though it just came out, already has a special place in my heart. I honestly wish this show had come out when I was a Freshmen in college. So if you are one, or are about to be, I want to encourage you to give it a try.

This series, as I said before, follows Zoey Johnson as she steps into the hectic, new, and exciting world that is college. You will see her deal with roommate drama, college parties, making new friends, meeting new boys, and over all, just trying to adapt to being a grown up and navigate the waters that are college and being away from home.

The episodes last about 25 minutes or less, and they all feature Zoey and her friends dealing with a new problem or facing some kind of drama. Whether it is boys, stress about classes, or just trying to find herself, you as a viewer will get a chance to watch Zoey deal with situations that you will find yourself in (if you haven’t already) when you get to college. We can hear her talking at the end of every episode and kind of giving advice to the viewers on this new but scary journey she has embarked on.

If you are feeling scared or stressed about starting college next fall, or are just having a hard time right now, go and watch this show. It will maybe help you prepare to deal with feelings or situations you are anxious about finding yourself into, give you comfort about what’s to come, serve as a reminder that every one goes through the same thing, or simply distract you and make you laugh. Every single one of this scenarios I think it’s a good one.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I am 🙂

Happy Tuesday!

Esta semana les voy a hablar de una serie que es relativamente nueva. Freeform saco el primer episodio el 3 de enero de 2018, pero yo descubrí que existía hace apenas un par de semanas. Estaba viendo un show que a mi me encanta que se llama Black-ish (muy recomendado) que ya salió hace rato. Un día cuando estaba por acabármelo, me puse a ver Hulu a ver que series habían salido nuevas, y me encontré con esta llamada Grown-ish (significa casi crecida).

Grown-ish es una serie que sigue la vida de Zoey, la hermana mayor de la serie Black-ish, y su vida universitaria. Ya se graduó de High School y se esta preparando para empezar la nueva etapa de su vida.

(Los personajes y actores los pueden encontrar arriba.)

Esta serie es una que aunque acaba de salir, le he agarrado mucho cariño. Ojalá ya hubiera estado en el aire cuando yo acababa de empezar la universidad. Así que si ustedes están por empezar la universidad, enserio les recomiendo que le den un chance  Grown-ish.

Esta serie, como dije antes, sigue a Zoey Johnson durante esta nueva etapa que comienza. La podrán observar mientras empieza la nueva, agitada, y emocionante vida universitaria. La veremos tratar de resolver problemas con su compañera de cuarto, haciendo nuevos amigos, conociendo chicos, y simplemente tratando de encajar y adaptarse a ser una adulta y navegar estas aguas de la universidad mientras vive lejos de casa.

Los episodios duran aproximadamente 25 minutos, y todos están basado alrededor de Zoey y sus amigos y como enfrentan problemas/drama que les trae esta nueva vida. Ya sea problemas relacionados con hombres, estrés de sus clases, o simplemente intentando encontrarse a ella misma en este nuevo mundo, tendrán la oportunidad de ver como Zoey lidia con situaciones que muchos de ustedes se verán en cuando entren a la universidad. La podemos escuchar hablando al final de cada episodio dándonos consejos a nosotros como espectadores acerca de esta nueva aventura en la que se acaba de embarcar.

Si por alguna razón se sienten asustados por empezar la universidad, o ya empezaron pero están teniendo dificultad para adaptarse, vayan a ver este show ya mismo. Con suerte los ayudará a preparase para lidiar con sentimientos o situaciones que los hacen sentir ansiosos, darles un poco de paz acerca de lo que esta por venir, recordarle que todo el mundo se encontrará en la misma posición que ustedes, o simplemente distraerlos un poco y hacerlos reír.

Espero que disfruten Grown-ish tanto como yo 🙂

Feliz Martes!
