Thoughts I Had While Watching My First "Game Of Thrones" Episode

The other night I was on the couch with my aunt and uncle when they decided to watch a "Game of Thrones" episode. I had watched maybe three parts of episodes of "Game of Thrones" in my life, and therefore knew of basically two characters. It was the most confusing hour of my day, and I'm interning for a government agency this summer. Here are the thoughts I had during that hour.

"Everyone loves this show so this should be pretty good."

My advice after this experience: don't watch "Game of Thrones" unless you want to commit, and even then good luck keeping track of who everyone is. Oh, and start at the beginning.

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart.

The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other.
