5 Marissa Cooper Moments That Will Make You Miss 'The OC'

Marissa Cooper was the real OG of The OC.

5 Marissa Cooper Moments That Will Make You Miss 'The OC'

Genuinely one of the best shows in history is 'The OC.' 'The OC' was filled with lots of drama, laughs, and tears as we watched the affluent teenagers of Newport Beach live their lavish lives.

Mischa Barton starred in the first three seasons as one of the main cast members, Marissa Cooper. Season four, she departed the series and any true fan of the show knows that season was the worst.

Marissa Cooper was the typical girl next door. She was beautiful, nice, popular, and of course, deeply troubled. However, even though Marissa made some questionable choices, she is still forever cemented as one of the most amazing characters on TV, at least in my world.

Back in its hay day, Mischa was the "it" girl. She was on tons of magazines, going to the best parties, and living her best life all because Marissa Cooper was so influential during that time.

1. When Marissa stole a bottle in the premiere episode.

Starting off the series in the most Marissa way she could, during the first episode she swiped a bottle of vodka from the bar at the charity fashion show. Obviously I do not condone stealing alcohol from a bar, but this made Marissa look like a badass to her friends.

2. Marissa and Ryan's NYE kiss. 

Also in the first season, Ryan and Marissa's kiss at Oliver's New Year's party. Marissa was so happy that Ryan showed up right as the clock struck midnight. This scene made everyone wish they had a Ryan Atwood, as if they didn't already.

3. When Marissa had her freak out.

Another scene that any true OC fan would remember. When Marissa screamed at her mom, freaked out, and threw her lounge chair in the pool. We stan her for finally expressing how she felt to her insane mother Julie Cooper-Nichol. However, maybe she doesn't have to throw what we know is expensive af furniture into the water.

4. When Marissa and Ryan went holiday shopping.

This was one of the purest and most wholesome scenes of the entire series. Marissa and Ryan shopped all around the mall for "Chrismukkah" (Christmas and Hannukah) presents. They went to all the department stores, had tons of cute montage scenes, but unfortunately, Marissa had to ruin it by getting caught shoplifting at the end. We still love her and I get why she wanted to get Ryan a nice watch!

5. The car accident in the finale. 

*Spoiler* When Marissa died in the season three finale, people were floored. This was the most heartbreaking, gut-wrenching, sad, terrible thing to see. After three seasons of rooting for her and thinking she was about to get out of California and better herself. Even after all these years, I will always hate Volchok for causing that car wreck.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
