32 Thoughts I Had While Watching 'Gossip Girl' For The First Time

32 Thoughts I Had While Watching 'Gossip Girl' For The First Time

But really, who's "Gossip Girl?"

"Gossip Girl": I would say that it’s the sensation sweeping the nation, but this show came out almost 10 years ago. Yikes. Somehow, I am the only person in the world who hasn’t seen this show. Thankfully, all six seasons are on Netflix. Let’s see how it goes…

1. Is it that big of a deal to show up at a train station?

2. So, I’m supposed to think that anywhere Serena goes in New York City, people know her? Damn, she’s popular.

3. Why is Nate’s dad called "Captain?"

4. I hope Chuck’s hair isn’t going to stay like this the entire series.

5. Why is Nate so much more excited to see Serena than his girlfriend?

6. Poor Serena, she is terribly underdressed for this party.

7. “They haven’t let him out yet”? Who’s him? Out of what, jail? Is someone in jail?

8. Wow this hug between Blair and Serena is so fake.

9. I thought they were best friends, so why does Blair look pissed that Serena showed up?

10. This intro sequence is creepy.

11. Wow, Serena’s little brother is so cute. His highlighted hair is such hot #look.

12. So, is Nate gonna say anything to Serena about the fact that she is still wearing the same outfit she was wearing the night before?

13. Jeez, Nate is really concerned about Serena.

14. Dan and Jenny’s dad is wearing a choker. This dude is hip AF.

15. Why is Chuck wearing so many patterns at once?

16. OK, Chuck is a total pig.

17. Eating breakfast on the steps of the Met. Such #glamour.

18. Why wouldn’t Blair invite Serena to her party? Rude.

19. Dan is so weird? But weird in a good way.

20. I can already sense the blossoming 14-year-old love story between Jenny and Eric.

21. Nate and Blair have been dating since kindergarten? Kudos kiddos.

22. Can Chuck chill out?

23. Ooooooooh! That is why Nate is so concerned about Serena.

24. Why is it that, even though Serena is the one who hooked up with Blair’s boyfriend, I still like Serena more? Help.

25. I love how Nate’s dad is using his son’s high school relationship for a business deal. I love this style of parenting!

26. Wow, Serena’s phone is defiantly a T-Mobile Sidekick. 2007 was such a ripe time in the cellular phone industry.

27. OK, what is with all the tension between Dan’s dad and Serena’s mom?

28. I have heard more Justin Timberlake and Timbaland songs in this one episode than I have in the past five years.

29. Yuck! Chuck is a horrible! Why does everyone like him so much?

30. Dan is so ~sassy~.

31. Ouch! B just gave S a b!tch face from hell.

32. B and S? How did I already start picking up on their lingo?

But really, who's "Gossip Girl?"

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
