I can’t believe it. I’ve been watching it since I was in grade 6. It really helped me… Laugh if you must, but it’s true.
Betty was such a confident girl. She was chubby, brace-faced and different. That’s how I felt (minus the braces) when I was watching the show. She gave me faith, in a way.
After watching it for all these years, I feel like I’ve grown up with the cast. I’ve laughed with them, I’ve cried with them… It just hurts to watch it go! Let’s just say thank god for DVDs!
On the finale, I didn’t cry as hard as I thought I would, but I assume it’s because it was a happy ending. Wilhemina is happy and is the editor in chief of Mode and Betty is moving to London, she’s taking a risk.
As stupid as it sounds, she’s my hero. I want to be somewhat like her. I want to work at a magazine one day, but I obviously won’t be able to accomplish that here. I’m sure the majority of the publications here are french, which doesn’t appeal to me at all. I’d love to move to NYC to persue it, and if I do, I’ll think of Betty. I’ll think of the risks she took and how confident she was.
This made me smile. :) You are beautiful, Betty.
