Hmm, that’s a interesting question. I think she is genuinely interested in it and, as you said, she’s so image-conscious it works out well. But is that what’s best for her? The Vera we saw at the beginning wasn’t happy at all but worse, she took it out on her coworkers. That wasn’t a person who loved her job. But that’s more to do with her, I guess, she’d be like that anywhere.
If you keep her interest and eye for it, and if she changes how she approaches people, she could come to love it. Even though her coworkers justifiably called her out for her bullying, they still seemed shallow and self-involved and I think she genuinely likes all that, the affectations, expensive things, the one upmanship. She even loved those blouses they bought. As long as she’s not hurting people, I think that is still the world for her. She’s not going to come of this so different she’s going to become, like, a social worker.
Heh, yeah, I could see it being translated differently throughout the show depending on context. I definitely received a whole new education on Mexican-Spanish pejoratives, lol. Everything sounded good coming from Vera, though. 😛
For sure, which makes me wonder why you’d head there unless you had a good reason. And as the experts keep saying, when nothing’s happening, people will feel like they’re doing all this for no reason and venture out again, which will undo all the work done.
And another anon:
Her actions do not match her words. The pandemic had already been declared and I remember her posting being out and about with many friends, even going as far as jokingly making Corona references. Sadly, just goes to show she’s just as out of touch as any other privileged celebrity. The same rules don’t apply to the rich and famous. That is a fact. And we need to start making them accountable for it rather than blindly idolising them.
Ah, if that’s true, that’s not so good. A lot of people were taking it so lightly early on. Hopefully she’s following the rules more strictly now that NYC is such a hot zone.
Aw, thanks! I do like that difference myself. Even when I’m posting old stuff, I like to vary it up.
You know I sometimes do shake my head at my clearly last-first mindset, even right now, I’m like, so I’m just gonna ignore Killjoys, El Embarcadero, and Desenfrenadas?? My so-called faves? So fickle! But at the same time, aside from how much I like watching and discovering new things, even if I were to stay in just one fandom, which would it be? It wouldn’t have been Juliantina. If I’d still been focused on finishing everything before moving on, I’d probably never have even gotten to them.
I do wish I could manage my time better, but I think my current approach is better than the alternative.
I did, anon! I didn’t get to gif as much as I wanted before I got distracted but let me know if you wanted something specific, I can try to push it up.
