A Jellyfish Inspired Dream
I'm not really an anime person, to be honest it's been a really long time since I sat down and watched a series. However, at the urging of several of my non-anime-people friends I sat down one day and watched Princess Jellyfish. It was so touching, I really loved it! Truly it was a wonderful series (and, thank goodness, was aimed at my age group).
I came away from the series with a light heart and a new, fragile dream; to one day live in a sisterhood. Ok, let me explain. In the series the main character lives in a community home with a group of other girls. They are a family to each other, they understand each others strengths and weaknesses, and most importantly they care for one another deeply (kind of like a sorority).
After watching the series I've been having the longing to live with a group of women when I graduate in our own little haven. Hopefully we'd be a little more productive than the characters in the series, who were unemployed, but it would be wonderful to come home from work to a group of happy, quirky friends. Such a dream will probably never come true, as ideal circumstances such as that are usually only found in fiction, but it would be very sweet none the less.
Could you imagine if all the girls in the sisterhood were lolis? How lovely that would be, like our very own kingdom of beauty hidden away inside an inconspicuous building! I think that living in a community of women would be a rewarding experience, much more consistent and comforting than the roller coaster of living with a lover.
Does anyone else feel the same way as me? Part of me feels like it's a pretty rational desire, but the other part feels like it's silly and embarrassing to express!
