Recently there has been a swarm of viral videos starring a 'single girl'. For all those of you who know what I'm talkin about-she is GOOD, and I mean REAL good, like fall on the floor, crying your eyes out funny.
I must've watched the few videos numerous times in awe of this girl.
First off-she's single, frum, shidduch-aged.
Secondly-she posted on YouTube=public forum.
Thirdly-she has guts
AND MORE IMPORTANTLY-she doesn't care (or atleast I don't think she does-especially if she posted on youtube!) what other people think, nor is she worried about her shidduchim because of it.
As our Bais Yaakov teacher's would say (and I quote
) "Yiladdos-what can we learn from this?"
Girls just wanna have fun. And why can't we? Just because we haven't yet found our zivug? Just because we our in shidduchim?
People are always worried, i.e. oh! you wanna go biking-I dunno, what would people say about me and tznius? or I'm sorry, I can't come with you-my mom doesn't want me going there-especially being in Shidduchim as she is worried what people will think if I go there', etc.
This girl, tho, she is living her life, having fun-doing a great job at it and look at the reaction of people who viewed this. Are they telling her to take it down? Are they telling her it's not tznius? No, instead, the video(s) has gone viral, been forwarded, more videos have been uploaded and approximately 300 people have subscribed to her! AND she was offered a great job.
Folks-lesson learned today is we can have just as fun as she is. AND, any publicity is good publicity. Some may think it's not proper, some may get a kick out of it, but as long as there are over 100,000 views=that's publicity!
Kudos YouTube actress, you are my true hero!
