9 Reasons Why 'Game Of Thrones' Is The Best Show Ever

Because what's not to love about midgets, incest and dragons?

I totally geek out over "Game of Thrones" and suggest it to just about everyone I know. It's just so badass, and violent and awesome. I can't even put into words how hyped I get over this HBO show. It's almost embarrassing, but not really because about half the world is just as obsessed as I am. There are about a million reasons that "Game of Thrones" is so superior to everything else on television, but I'll just share 10 of them (Warning: Spoilers.)

1. Female Characters Steal the Show.



As the show progresses through its six seasons, you realize how important the leading ladies are. They are totally badass and empowering, and have all the men of the Seven Kingdoms groveling at their feet, in different ways. They are strong characters, and embody the values and determination of female millennials.

2. Anything Can Happen.

There are absolutely no boundaries in GOT. Just about anything and everything could happen, and that’s what makes it so intriguing. You literally never can see what's coming. Everyone is a player in the Game of Thrones, and it's often either kill or get killed. Or get killed and then revived; depends on the person we're talking about. But, it’s the least predictable show out there and has had at least 3,018 '"WTF just happened?" moments.

3. Dragons.

I am shamelessly into super nerdy things, but typically mystical creatures aren’t my thing… But GOT makes dragons just about as cool as possible. Like nothing gets me hype quite like a dragon sweeping in to save, the day and of course, burning putrid characters alive.

4. There is an Insane Amount of Gore.

And I mean this in the best way. It's almost too much blood, but that’s what makes it so awesome. Like I said there are no boundaries for these writers. For example, this past season one character had his stepmom and newborn brother eaten alive by his dogs. While that’s totally disturbing, I also find it strangely satisfying at the same time.

5. There are 100 Different Storylines.

That’s probably why this show is so damn interesting. If you think about it, every episode is about an hour long, so each storyline only gets about 10-15 minutes of airtime. It's just enough of each character and setting, and always keeps you wanting more. Not to mention they all intertwine in the most insane ways.

6. You Love to Hate the Bad Guys.

Even if you don't watch GOT, you definitely have heard how much everyone hates Joffrey, the terrible boy king. And you most definitely heard how happy everyone was when he was offed. The entire community of viewers come together in hatred towards the absolutely terrible, vile and mental bad guys like Joffrey.

7. Everyone Dies.

This isn't really a reason why GOT is great, but literally. Everyone you learn to like dies. It's like "Grey's" but on steroids. I'm not saying that’s a good thing, but it totally keeps you on your toes. Word of advice: Never get attached to a character. No one is safe on this show, and it's almost always the good guys that are killed first.

8. Jon Snow.

AKA Kit Harrington. Total dreamboat who got revived this season. Like, nothing is hotter than a morally righteous guy coming back from the dead. Always seems to be torn between the right thing to do and the smart thing to do. Super brooding, super attractive.

9. The Cult of Viewers.

There is literally a gaggle of people who watch GOT, and it is awesome. It brings friends and family closer, bonding over the sheer enigma which is "Game of Thrones." Thousands of dedicated fans watch every Sunday, think of far-fetched fan theories and tweet all about it. Like, think of all the memes that would not have been created if it wasn't for GOT. Tragic.

So I really don't need to say anything else, because I'm pretty sure my point has been made. GOT is awesome. And is arguably the best show to ever grace television. If you don't watch it -- get on it. And if you do, good for you. You're cultured and have great taste in TV.

To The Friends I Won't Talk To After High School

I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

Hey,

So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.

Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.

We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.

With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.

And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?

Sincerely,

Me

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

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
