My Unpopular FRIENDS Opinions!

Monday, 28 September 2020

Hello everyone, and happy Monday! I was originally going to do this as a video, however I just prefer my YouTube channel to be just vlogs at the minute, as that's what I prefer to watch/edit. So instead, I decided to really sit down and write down my unpopular FRIENDS opinion.

I'm very aware that it's been years since FRIENDS ended, however let's be honest; we all still love it. So I'm going to put together 5 potentially unpopular opinions, and I'd love to see your feedback on it.


1. Rachel and Gavin deserved more of a storyline.

Now this is possibly my most unpopular opinion: I really loved the Rachel x Gavin relationship! However, you can tell that the show's writer's only wanted the Ross x Rachel storyline, because so many people were rooting for it. However, Rachel and Gavin's personalities just seem to mesh so well!!!! There's something about how they engaged that really made me happy. And I loved it so much, that I literally got a story idea over their relationship. 

And what really effed me off, is that there was a relationship that began and then POOF! HE DISAPPEARED!!!!!! They didn't even give him a proper goodbye! I know that Dermot Mulroney is a very popular actor, so he probably had other commitments, however their relationship deserved a finished and an end.


2. Rachel should've gotten on the plane.

Now I know this sounds bad, however this was Rachel's dream job. And she gave it up for a boy?! Is this LC or Rachel?! I get that Ross finally gets his shit together and finally decides that he's ready to full on commit because it's the finale, etc. However, if he really loved her, (yes I fucking said it), then he should've gotten on the goddamn plane and gone with her.

I get that he had Ben that was living with Carol and Susan; and as soon as Emma was born, he was completely forgotten about, however he should've made it work. Why was it always about what Ross wanted rather than Rachel? For example; getting a job thanks to Mark, and having to break up because it was a jealous little bitch every five minutes, because girls and boys can't be just friends.

I do think that because Rachel has been really enjoying her job and really wanted to achieve higher in her career, that she finally got the opportunity, he should've followed her to Paris.


3. As I got older, I never shipped Ross x Rachel.

Is this even controversial anymore? Is this even unpopular anymore? I feel that as a lot of fans have gotten older, they've realised that Ross and Rachel's relationship was quite toxic. They were constantly getting together and breaking up, etc. However, it was always what Ross wanted! He was clearly one of those men that thinks that earning money is the man's job, and the woman's job is being at his beck and call. And because Rachel started the show as a damsel in distress, and Ross clearly loved that about her. 

Then she got herself together and began finding a career that she was really good at, and that she was passionate about. However, because her world didn't revolve around him, he didn't like it. He argued constantly with her and brought her down all the time. He wasn't a great person, and in my opinion, their relationship is toxic.


4. I never shipped Phoebe and Joey.

Is this unpopular? Imagine if Monica and Chandler got together, Ross and Rachel got together; and then the writers went: fuck it! Let's get Phoebe and Joey together. Wouldn't have made any sense! I loved their friendship and loved that they always gravitated together in most situations. And it was a good thing that the show portrayed that girls and boys can be just friends! They both have similar personalities and completely are in-tune with each other, and their friendship just makes sense.


Also, I absolutely love Phoebe and Mike. Maybe it's my love of Paul Rudd, but I thought that he was the right amount of weird, with a big hint of serious. He was the perfect balance of weird and serious, that Phoebe needed in her life. However, if you had Phoebe and Joey together, it wouldn't have worked.


5. Joey deserved to find someone.

Throughout the entire show, we saw Joey being a full-on player, however it was in a more respectable way. Yes, he slept with loads of women, etc. although he never lead anyone on. (If he did, I can't remember it) As the series progressed during the later series, Joey wanted a relationship. He even considered ruining his friendship with Rachel, just because he wanted a relationship like Monica and Chandler's. And I get that him ending with someone might've been a bit too typical, although I would've loved to have seen him settled down or beginning a relationship. And it was such a shame!



Finding my fitness feet????

Friday, 18 September 2020

 Happy Friday everyone! I hope you're all good and well! I've finished for the week (no working this weekend, thank the lord!) So basically I'm feeling the whole TGIF feels, right now. Anywho, I decided that on Thursday (last Thursday, not the one that was yesterday), that I'd start taking the whole fitness thing more seriously. Have I talked about fitness too much? Potentially. Am I going to talk about it again. Yes. 

As you know, I've been running three times a week, and I'm not gonna lie, I really enjoy it. I've started posting on my Fitness Instagram a lil bit more, and trying to figure out what I want that space to be. (Kinda like this blog, but yeah).


And I'm still doing my 5k runs every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning. However, I have noticed that my time is pretty much the same. So much, that I could just change the title of the run every day and pretend that I did it. So it's a little bit annoying, which means I've been trying to figure out how to get faster.



So I went to a Facebook group that I'm apart of, which is Lucy's Squad. It's a group thing for people who follow Lucy Wyndham-Read on YouTube. I asked for any advice, and a lot of people were saying to change my route, as you get too used to it. However, it's been over a week since I began writing this, and can confirm that this is still not the case!!!

However, what I've been doing for my cardio sessions, is working on adding on more exercise videos every time, and so far, I've been loving it. Because most of Lucy's videos are 7 minutes for HIIT style videos or leg/thigh workouts. So I've been enjoying creating different variations of a workout. However, I started off with 3 videos: 2 7-minute videos and a 5-minute ab workout. Then on Tuesday I added 2 more 7-minute videos and to came to a 33 minute workout and oh my lord, it was tough and I loved it!

I'm still taking progress pictures and once I feel comfortable with how I look, I'll definitely post on here at some point. I find weighing myself too much for my body dysmorphia, however progress pictures help me see my actual progress. So if you're feeling low about the numbers on your scales, I highly recommend just taking weekly front and side progress pictures instead.

Why can't I find my Mark Darcy?

Monday, 7 September 2020

 For the longest time, I've said that Bridget Jones was an autobiography on my own life. But only in certain senses. Her personality and mannerisms are definitely me down to a tee, however I'm not actually as lucky as Miss Jones in the dating department. She (in the films) had two men after her at the same time. Mate, I'd be lucky if I had one. HA! Which is clearly laughable. 

For as long as I can remember, I've always dreamed of having a man like Mark Darcy. He was the typical tall, dark and handsome that every girl always goes on about, at some point in her life. In Bridget Jones Diary, he's very serious, he's got a very good poker face and he likes her. Just as she is. (Which come on - YOU WOULD DIE IF SOMEONE SAID THAT TO YOU!!!) 

Bridget in the bottom gif would be my face as well!! Imagine?! I would fucking die! However, I've never been lucky enough to be in this kind of scenario where not just 1 but even 2 guys are fighting for my affection. (Albeit, Daniel Cleaver's ego has been shattered and only wants Bridget back just for shagging purposes. He never liked her fully, let's be real!)

Basically ever since I was young, I always compare guys that I like to either a Mark Darcy or a Daniel Cleaver status in my head. If you're a Daniel; you're not worth my time, you're going to fuck me over and it'll last for a mere 5 minutes. However, if you're a Mark; even if I find you infuriating there's something about you that keeps you in my head, and I have a soft spot for you. 

Myself and my friend Danielle, use this analogy regularly. Especially recently when I was struggling to decide which of two boys to focus my attention on. (Please can we laugh at this, because neither were worth it and I'm a fucking idiot!) But the analogy nonetheless, does help me see things from a more realistic prospective. And that usually leads to any guy that I begin to like, last only a mere week in my head, before their true colours come out. 

If I'm being honest, I think that's why I find online dating so difficult. Because it's like, how do I figure out if you're a Mark Darcy or a Daniel Cleaver from text messages?! Also, my absolute favourite thing, is that two guys in my life have started off as a Mark Darcy, and ended up being a Daniel Cleaver in the end . Which is actually rather annoying. But hey ho! Thanks for finally showing your true colours, boys. 

If you're being 100% honest with yourself: would you prefer a Mark Darcy or a Daniel Cleaver? P.S. How many people are now watching to watch the film????? Because I now am!
