Daria Has Got A New Show

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

Daria probably wouldn’t be too pleased if she knew that she was the star of one the biggest cartoons of the 90s, seeing as she was best known for her cynical teenage personality.  Despite her lack of positivity, people adored her so much on the Beavis and Butt-Head show that she even got her own show!


The Daria show lasted for an entire five seasons on MTV.  And now, in 2018 since we’re all starting to run out of original ideas for TV shows, Daria is being rebooted into a whole new show.  Together with this exciting news is also the fact that MTV has released a new production unit, known as MTV Studios, and they’ve got some new and exciting shows up their sleeve.


Truth be told though, Daria is all we really care about.  The reboot of Daria has a new title Daria & Jodie, which will be a show about two smart women who are ready to take on the world, as they break down barriers of social classes, gender, race and popular culture.


What we’re really wondering is if Daria will have a cellphone.
