For those of you who do not know, Daria is an MTV spin-off of Beavis and Butthead that aired from 1997 to 2002 originally. It is also my number one favorite show ever. Although it aired when I was merely I child, I remember watching the brief reruns as a preteen. It taught me a great deal of things, including what to expect in high school (granted I never had a musical montage because of a hurricane). However, the greatest lessons have followed me into young adulthood, and here they are.
It’s Ok To Not Know What Career You’ll Have Right Away
If you ask me what I plan on doing after graduation, I will more than likely blankly stare at you fr a few seconds before saying a lot of maybe and probably scattered around. No one wants to be 40 and miserable at work, so don’t try to plan your whole life at the age of 20.
Sometimes It’s A Hide Under The Pillow Day
Your twenties are such a complicated, complex, and weird time. Sometimes, when the world begins to confuse you, you just want to hide under a pillow for a moment or two. That escape can be all you need to get away from the oddness of young adulthood
Show Who You Truly Are
Daria struggles with her identity like most teenagers do, but her mother Helen brings out one of the biggest lessons for all of us here.
Sometimes, Your Biggest Accomplishment Is Waking Up
Again, this relates to hiding under a pillow. Being a young adult isn’t as dreamy and easy as people think. Yes, you may have to wake up and face the day, but at least you woke up!
Staying Home Is Nicer Than Going Out
Most nights, I’d rather watch reruns or movies at home in my pajamas than go out and do anything, and Daria’s misadventures when she left home further prove my point to staying in. Daria marathon anyone?
Sarcasm is a Second Language
And sometimes it is your only defense against the dimwitted.
