The cavalcade of mixed reactions to the conclusion of the “Pamela” three-parter is indicative of something positive about a show; that it is so highly affective that individual people will have remarkably different reactions. My experience live-tweeting it was met with a great deal of support and a little bit of ire. It isn’t wrong for people to question my feminism after my ultimately positive response. One of the advantages of feminism(s) is that the reactions and beliefs are varied, and in this specific instance, I will be departing from the mainstream of feminism by saying that the conclusion of Louie S4 was beautiful.
There’s a period between young-adulthood and adulthood when the training wheels rust off and you’re forced to either be responsible for your adult life or fall apart completely.

I am Hannah Horvath.
I am a creative woman in my twenties who lives in New York. I am a young woman who was molded by the protective and imaginary environment known as “College.” I was told to go forth and create amazing works and be the dream I paid thousands of dollars for. I am currently in a situation that forces me to be thriftier than I ever have before. My sexual history is an erratic mashup of dissatisfying and ultimately awkward sexual and romantic encounters. I am often focused on whether or not people like me instead of figuring out whether or not I like I really like them. I have the grandiose belief that I am the voice of my generation. I have no independent confirmation of this belief. My clothes wear me more than I wear my clothes. I am aware of my attractiveness yet hateful of its faults. I am self-absorbed. I am an idiot.
