10 Reasons Why I'm Addicted to Gossip Girl

1. The steamy romance of Chuck and Blair.

There could not be a more perfect example of this than the love of Chuck and Blair. Their love was everything you could only dream of. Tenacious, passionate, statuesque. It was clear to everyone watching that there was no better match for the two of them, and they managed to work through every detour that was thrown at them. Long live the unbreakable bond of Chlair.

2. Dorota Kishlovsky.

From her comic one-liners, to her entertaining facial expressions, she was hands down the most under-appreciated character on the show. I felt bad for every time Blair treated her so poorly, but I couldn't help but adore the relationship that they shared. Plus, she did make the best points.

3. It was way ahead of its time.

Cecily von Ziegesar is seriously brilliant. A visionary. The first book in the series was written in 2002, and the first episode aired in 2007. Way long before any social media cites existed. It really set the base for Twitter, Yik-Yak, Instagram, etc.

4. S & B's friendship.

No matter how many times they fought, they always found their way back to each other because nobody does BFFs like Serena and Blair.

5. Serena's wardrobe.

Every episode I was filled with envy every time S was on screen. Every outfit fit her to a T and made me want to go on a shopping spree and upgrade everything in my closet.

6. The big cities.

As a travel enthusiast, I absolutely loved every time they ran away in Daddy's private jet to go explore some new city full of strolls down luxurious avenues and fancy restaurants. If only it were that easy for the rest of us!

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F05%2F6361925069659865841520512892_200.gif%239&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=874&h=207317d4423539838c4dd8f9db4821e103e22acb7ffce6f39004b1f8e98de8c8&size=980x&c=1098240742 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F05%252F6361925069659865841520512892_200.gif%25239%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D874%26h%3D207317d4423539838c4dd8f9db4821e103e22acb7ffce6f39004b1f8e98de8c8%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1098240742%22%7D" expand=1]

7. Chuck Bass.

At first, Chuck only showed his despicable, womanizer, heartless side. But, once he started to work through his daddy issues and open up, that icy facade melted away and we got to see the real Chuck who loved so much and cared so deep. There are plenty of other fish in the sea, but there's only one Bass.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F05%2F636192542396577100-1939548854_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=1005&h=afdfee1f1dd90f29857aa0e1c44f71645532c0cb24ff29fc771a864ac5dee608&size=980x&c=4039958732 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F05%252F636192542396577100-1939548854_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D1005%26h%3Dafdfee1f1dd90f29857aa0e1c44f71645532c0cb24ff29fc771a864ac5dee608%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4039958732%22%7D" expand=1]

8. It pushed boundaries.

This show really tested the limits with the high society parties, teenagers drinking & having sex, the scandalous outfits. All of the sex, scandals, and sneaky little one-liners made this show worth the month of sacrificing a full 8 hour sleep while I binged all six incredible seasons.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F05%2F636192538827606191-39623377_200.gif%2338&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=362&h=5e72c748c7337d00a5220740423db8004cfcf21977b4a75aec9b155b26988141&size=980x&c=4126247244 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F05%252F636192538827606191-39623377_200.gif%252338%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D362%26h%3D5e72c748c7337d00a5220740423db8004cfcf21977b4a75aec9b155b26988141%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4126247244%22%7D" expand=1]

9. The silly moments.

I always looked forward to the clever little lines, faces and jokes that would be scattered throughout the episodes. The show was rightfully labeled as a drama, but it had its very fair share of comedic moments!

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F05%2F636192519880177689-1299684358_200.gif%2381&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=214&h=bf171e5ff88667946e1ace70ff16301c5e604b8fe6cd8dfc925c63b228d71136&size=980x&c=3773983973 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F05%252F636192519880177689-1299684358_200.gif%252381%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D214%26h%3Dbf171e5ff88667946e1ace70ff16301c5e604b8fe6cd8dfc925c63b228d71136%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3773983973%22%7D" expand=1]

10. Last, but certainly never least, the drama!

I won't even deny it. I loved every single second of the outrageous scandals and traveling to the Upper East Side and getting caught up in the fictitious lives of the hyper-privileged teens. As Gossip Girl says best, "You know you love me."

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
