Not to question the marketing savviness of the good Sisters at Our Lady of Sorrows High School, but the Jane the Virgin coin maybe shouldn’t have been their signature swag item. Possibly they should design #JustLikeJane bracelets. I could write a thesis on Jane’s stellar morality through this first season. When we get in Hiatus Hell, I might just do that.
For now though, simply look at Chapter Twelve for Five Times we should all act #JustLikeJane.
2. Jane makes the people around her better. She didn’t have to encourage Raphael to see his sister in the mental intuition and she definitely doesn’t have to go with him. She also didn’t have to take the letter from Luisa, but that wouldn’t be Jane. It’s contagious. Being around her makes people want to be #JustLikeJane.
3. She’s loyal. The moment she hears about El Presidente's unfortunate Fade to Black moment, Jane doesn’t hesitate. She will not write the episode that will thrust the literal and figurative knife into her father’s chest. She doesn’t give a second thought to her own dreams of writing or what she will be giving up. Once again, she’s only thinking of others. Seriously Sisters, start designing the bracelets. Maybe it’s a charm bracelet and you can add on a “Jane the Virgin” limited edition charm if you’re looking for a good upsell.
4. She’s hardworking. Rogelio simply asks her to write the greatest death scene ever. That won’t be hard. Sure, Jane has time. She’s only interning, waitressing, counseling Raphael’s family and, of course, growing a human. Granted, she is fueled by Alba’s signature grilled cheese. I think having a homemade grilled cheese delivered to you computer side is most writers' greatest dream and might be the cure for ninety percent of writer’s block. Even with Alba’s little piece of heaven, Jane is a Type-A machine that makes us all wonder if she’s living in a thirty-hour day world.
5. Jane’s peach, soon to be avocado or whatever fruit that Baby email assigns next, should be giving her more emotions than a Taylor Swift album, but she’s the emotional pillar of strength for her loved ones. She’s strong for Raphael when he deals with his sister and stands in the wings for her father’s final bow.
I can only imagine the countless more moments whenJane will make us all want to be #JustLikeJane. So Sisters get to Etsy and think big. I see #JustLikeJane on jewelry, coffee mugs, iPhone cases or at least trending on Twitter on Monday Nights. So make the world a better place and watch Jane the Virgin Monday nights on the CW and try for a day to be #JustLikeJane.
