I have been a fan of Issa Rae since season 1 of The Mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl . When J awkwardly walked passed Cece in the hallway I knew I had found my soul sister. It’s totally on trend now to show authentic black women on TV, but Issa Rae has been giving us regular shmegular girls someone to relate to since 2012! 

After the Youtube series there was the book. Writing about it now makes me want to read it again. Its filled with anecdotes that all awkward girls can relate to: from lying about her looks in teen chat rooms to her dad still paying her car insurance (it is expensive!).

Like lots of ladies I anxiously awaited the premiere of Insecure and purchased HBO solely so I could watch it. I was not disappointed! The show is everything and watching Issa’s glow up over the past year has been amazing. And she introduced us to Yvonne Orji who is #lifegoals in her own right!

Season 2 starts July 23rd which gives you plenty of time to watch the show if you haven’t already or time to rewatch a couple of times like I plan to do!
