I knew that I loved How I Met Your Father, but my love for it grew with the fourth episode of the season. Sophie and I share the same favorite music video, which I do deem as iconic – Christina Agueleria‘s Dirrty.
Turning the Dirrty Thirty is a funny thing. In todays world we capture it in meme’s or tik tok videos about where we are supposed to be in our lives. Sure our parents were married and probably had 2.5 kids by their 30’s. But we’re not our parents.
Though some people hitting their 30’s are the picture of maturity and some aren’t – Sophie definitely was on both sides of the line. Her childhood had been taken from her because she had to grow up so quickly.
But Sophie was good with who she was. And that’s part of the beauty ofAj Sophie’s character. She’s good with her quest to find love, to journey out into the world and to make the world a better place for herself.
Turning 30 doesn’t scare her. She’s embracing it. And she’s even having a party thats theme is based on the Christina Aguilera song, Dirrty. Personally I could not think of a better theme.
It’s a good one.
But here’s the thing. We can all feel comfortable in our choices, until someone changes that feeling. For Sophie, going out with Drew, changed that. Drew is the epitomy of maturity and for Sophie, that’s a turn on. But we have to wonder, is this another slippery slope that Sophie is going down, wanting to change everything about what she loves and who she is, for someone besides herself?
She didn’t have to invite Drew to her party. She did because of a good date, but I even admit that 2 dates in 2 days is probably not the best idea. Especially when you feel like you can’t be yourself.
At the party she’s so scared that he’s having a bad time, that she’s having a bad time. When you have to present yourself as something that you’re not, you’re not going to be able to keep up. And you aren’t going to be happy.
It’s okay to not be in the same stage in life as everyone else. Sophie needs to see that where she is and what she’s going through is okay.
But she can’t. She apologizes and is embarrassed when he burns his hand and then catches Valentina and Charlie having sex in the shower.
Sophie was so busy trying to be someone else and impress Drew that she may not have realized that he could be feeling the same way. Drew felt as though he missed out due to having his shit together.
But it goes to show that we can all live and learn from each other. Drew and Sophie are really into each other. They like each other for who they are. Part of the joy of this is th
Personally, thirty wasn’t a big deal. It was like another day. 35 however, sucked.
BIG BROTHER WOES
We love getting to know characters and getting to know more about them. Jesse and Ellen’s relationship is complex.
They are thrilled to be going to a party together and we’re definitely like what? Why haven’t they been to a party together since they were 5? It’s because that’s when their parents got divorced the two were separated.
Both want to find a relationship with each other, but it’s hard. Then again, isn’t any relationship. The two at a party should be interesting. Jesse says maybe they can hit on some girls together. The Walker siblings on the prowl will definitely be interesting.
It’s more interesting because these two barely know each other.
At the party, they continue to learn about each other. Jesse playing wingman is really filling me with second hand embarrassment for him. But Ellen strikes out and Jesse wants to know what’s wrong.
Ellen doesn’t want to talk to him about it. He’s hurt. But for Ellen it’s more complex. She feels like her big brother left her. She wanted this big brother in her life that showed her everything. But she feels more deserted by him than anything.
Jesse and Ellen’s relationship, after this episode, may be one thing that I look forward to in every episode, because i think fixing their feelings and selves will make them grow as people. It will make them be able to grow and it will help them evolve in relationships.
Jesse and Ellen feel resentment towards each other and the situation was way out of their control. They both want to find love, but I believe they have to fix this relationship and learn to love themselves first.
And then everything else will fall into place.
One had to admire Sid. He’s always trying to pave his own way. He is trying to do his engagement his way and has decided to take on wearing a pinkie ring. He calls it his man-gagement ring.
Valentina tells him it isn’t great. And hey if Charlie is making fun of shit, that’s not a good sign.
Especially at the party, where he’s trying to explain it to everyone and no one is really getting it. But then when a girl mistakes it as a purity ring? Dead.
While Valentina is one of my favorite, I have to admit that she was somewhat vicious with her telling Charlie that things are going great, but they haven’t decided to be together, together.
Charlie of course is an adult and made his own choices to move to New York. But he did it for her.
Now, I am not saying that is a reason for them to be together, but telling him that she may want to go home with someone else is definitely kinda mean. So do we get why Charlie was upset? Yes.
But that being said, Valentina’s feelings are all over the place. She’s open and adventurous with her sexuality and attractions and we can respect that. Getting turned on by Charlie talking to other girls is not something we saw coming, but to each their own kink.
Valentina is the character that we all wish we could be. Confident, gorgeous, adventurous and giving. Part of me thinks that she just wants to be loved and the other part of me wonders if she’s just fearful of relationships.
Seeing these two decide to be exclusive is a moment. It’s a moment that we can be excited over because it is the opportunity for growth and you know we stan character growth.
- This whole trademark thing is funny and something I will be practicing in my life.
- The whole how to swipe a metro card… hahahaha. But Jesse is right in this one.
- Drew and Sophie’s whole cab moment is adorable romantic comedy stuff and we’re living for it.
- We need to know what happened with the cat and the keg.
- Been there with the heat pipe.
- Goodwill book nook is a red flag Sophie. A red flag that you think you need one.
- The group outside the bathroom door, when they’re talking nice about Sid, and Valentina and Charlie saying they’ll take it to the grave. We’d do the same.
