The Big Bang Theory: why do we always mock Amy’s feelings? (and more)

Hello people of the Universe !

Did you watch the last episode of TBBT? Firstly, you should because it is a really nice one. You see a bit of each character and enjoy simple moments with them all. Secondly, and this is the most interesting, Emmy4Mayim gave me the idea to write about it. Why? Because I agree with her statement: we always mock Amy’s feelings for Sheldon. And that’s enough.

I have always supported the show, finding the jokes hilarious and being amazed by how every character has its place and succeeds to evolve at its own pace. But here it is, I don’t understand why we need to belittle Amy every time she tries to express her feelings. Not only in this episode, in many others too, she is the one that ends up frustrated, put aside, as if her opinion wasn’t important or too “Amy-kind” to be taken seriously.

I am sure you noticed that there is always a joke after Sheldon expresses his feelings, never when Amy does. She is careful with her words, it is very important to her to say exactly what she means with as much love and kindness as she can. She cares about how Sheldon is going to react. Instead, his inuendos and his words often have a double meaning. He keeps giving false hope to her without thinking she could be hurt. She keeps waiting.

Ah, relationships. I spent a long time in front of my screen before writing this. I couldn’t stop writing a sentence and pressing delete again and again. I felt like either my words were too rational, or too intimate. There was no balance. I also didn’t want to write a piece that would only speak to fans of The Big Bang Theory. I hope you, reader, can relate, whatever you are a fan or not. It is not a big deal. I also hope you don’t mind reading a long article, I have a lot to say.Read More »

How it feels to have friends

Hello people of the Universe!

My title is not complete. I should have written “How it feels to have friends when you barely had ones before“. This is the right way to begin my blog post.

I don’t really know how to call myself. We are in a world where everyone needs — or feel the need — to have a label but I can’t describe myself in one word. People say nerd and I agree. I also add intellectual, passionate, good speaker, bookaholic, questioning mind, perfectionist, idealist, caring about people’s look and opinions, rational and emotional, confused by some cultural norms and totally uncomfortable in a crowd. Among many other things.

One day, a friend called me “an old soul”. I can relate. It is the best definition I can give.

Now, you may imagine it was not easy to make friends. I didn’t play with young kids because I didn’t like that. I prefered books and drawing. I was quite bad at being mean to other kids like when you are older and try to impress and make obey the younger. I remember once, I had a huge bag full of marbles andRead More »
