A bit of backstory on my journey to millennial-palooza:
I started watching Days of our Lives in college thanks to my roommate who was obsessed with Patch and Kayla. I’m a sporadic viewer. Every few months I catch up on a couple of recap blogs and tune in when something interesting is going on.
The time jump was one of those interesting things.
OMG, it was amazing. AMAZING! On Friday (11/05/2019) Jennifer Horton slipped into a coma after being pushed off a balcony by her cousin Hope, whose evil alter ego Princess Gina had recently taken over. On Monday (11/08/2019) Jennifer woke from the coma, to find a whole year had passed. For all of us! Super sudsy drama and angst, and so many questions painstakingly answered in tiny morsels over weeks.
It was BRILLIANT.
I went from casual viewer to ALL IN. I watched DAYS every day. I scoured the internet: you name it, I found it! (DAYS fans are the most devoted fans in the world. They take care of their ships!) But I needed spoilers. I started following as many DAYS actors on social media as I could, hoping they’d give up something, any sort of clue.
Freddie does much more than act on DAYS. He and his fiancee, Alyssa, have a lot going on. She runs a lifestyle blog for millennial women. They have a podcast. They create loads of content. And they also published a self-help audiobook for millennials: The Pivot Principle.
ding-ding-ding! I found my millennial mentors! I just didn’t know it yet.
