If you didn't automatically recognize the title of this post, it is the name of the fictional TV show feautured in the late 90s hit MTV show Daria.
Why did this bother me so much? Because I wanted to be like Quinn, Daria's fashionable and popular younger sister. Instead I got a younger sister who was like Quinn. Well, not really, but she had long red hair and was fashionable. At least our parents weren't like their parents.
It took me a long time to realize it was ok, and even cool, to be more like the older Morgendorffer sister. After all, the show was not called "Quinn". Daria was a fantastically original character, and made it cool to be smart and to be your own person.
Did you ever watch Daria? Could you identify with any of the characters?
