25 Thoughts I Had While Watching The 10th Anniversary Of 'High School Musical'

I spent my middle school years basically dreaming about being Gabriella Montez and searching for my Troy Bolton. With the 10th anniversary last week, I naturally made sure I was home by 8 p.m. with my roommates ready to relive some of my childhood dreams. However, watching it as an adult was very different then when I was a kid. Here are somethings that went through my mind watching "High School Musical" not as a 9 year old.

1. It starts out as karaoke for about five seconds, and then they never look at the screen again. Um, I don't think that's how it works.

2. A week later, Gabriella just so happens to transfer to East High in New Mexico out of all of the schools?! That's the most unrealistic thing ever!

3. I never realized that Corbin Bleu was my first love of a light skin guy!

4. How did Gabriella not notice Troy's shaggy, clearly highlighted hair when she first walked into that homeroom class?? Come on, girl!

5. Chad was just making fun of musicals, and then they break into song and dance... okay gotcha, makes sense!

6. The way Troy steps up so that Gabriella has a partner is goals! Still searching for my Troy.

7. Mrs. Darbus is a b*tch. I would have hated to have a teacher like her!

8. So, just because Troy auditions for one play, the whole cafeteria has to break out into song and dance? Sorry, what?

9. Yo, nice red and white baseball tee, Troy. I have the same one! No, but wait, I actually do.

10. Troy Bolton you're cute...but man, your dad! Hello, Coach Bolton!

11. Wait! Why didn't my high school have a rooftop garden? That's awesome!

12. Coach Bolton, why you gotta kick Gabriella out of the gym? #RUDE! What a horrible first impression.

13. I wish I had all the cool shirts Chad had.

14. Troy was basically the original f*ck boy! Saying those things about Gabriella...that she's not important or he will forget about her? Troy, don't you know that us girls find out everything?!

15. Then Gabriella is crying cause Troy basically ripped her heart out...and you want to go to lunch?! No! Let her go home, eat some ice cream and drink wine while wallowing in her sorrow! Gosh!

16. Um, Gabriella...your belt isn't in the loop holes of your pants. Is that a style I missed?

17. Cue sad song about Troy while she walks down the hall and sees a creepy poster of him looking like he is Beans from Evan Stevens. Well, that's awkward.

18. Oh, now you realize how bad of friends you all have been?? It's too late!

19. Troy, what are you wearing?! A jean jacket with jean pants and a blue shirt... really? You wanna win her back wearing that?! No wonder she didn't want to talk to you.

20. Troy: *I actually scaled the side of your house to sing you a song...yet again.*

21. Sharpay was basically the OG mean girl.

22. Wait. Call backs in front of the whole student body? I don't think that's how it works.

23. And of course, everyone wins. Let me tell you, that's not like real high school! Everyone was not all in it together.

24. I still remember the moves to "We're All In This Together" from when they did the dance-along special on TV.

25. And now, I'm gonna go watch the HSM 2 and 3. I wonder if my mom still has my old HSM posters and if she will send them to me?? #TroyAndGabriellaForever

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

To The Classes That Follow
Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
