Today’s post is going to be some of my thoughts on Season Two and what I think will happen in season three. This post is going to be full of spoilers, so be warned.
I recently made the mistake of finishing the second season of On My Block. Now I have to wait another year for the show to come back. We don’t have a confirmed Season Three yet, but with the popularity that On My Block has, it’s almost guaranteed. I made the same mistake with the first season. It’s just one of those shows that really draws you in.
On Friday, April 5th, I got the opportunity to meet Elaine Welteroth and Brittany Packnett, Abby Wambach, and Glennon Doyle at the Be the Change event hosted at Florida Atlantic University. Elaine’s book More Than Enough will be out June 11, 2019 and it can be pre-ordered here. I do not have any affiliate links and this is not a sponsored post.
The first time I saw Elaine Welteroth was in my living room. I was watching an episode of Blackish where she was playing Zoey’s boss. This was long before my love affair with Grownish began. One of the things that struck out most to me was her hair. Watching a black woman in a position of power with her hair in its natural state, that meant a lot to my teenage self. Her appearance in Grownish brought about that same feeling. After hearing about her role in co-writing that episode, I knew I had to meet her for myself.
I went to see The Upside with my mom a couple weeks ago and we had a great time. This isn’t going to be a full review, just a few of my thoughts.
I felt a little iffy about going to see The Upside, but my brother mentioned that this was one of Kevin Hart’s first really serious roles. I think he and Bryan Cranston did a great job portraying these roles. Just because they were playing serious roles, doesn’t mean there weren’t a bunch of good laughs thrown in.
I plan on posting my actual Recap + Discussion some time tomorrow. I just wanted to talk about tonight’s episode ASAP. Until then, you can check out my twitter feed since I was live-tweeting the whole episode. This post is gonna be filled with spoilers, so be warned.
This episode was packed with all the punches. Zoey was going through a whole lot and so was her squad. I’m so happy she was honest about the cheating situation, even if she did end up getting academic probation. It could’ve been a whole lot worse.
