9 Reasons Why One Tree Hill's Nathan Scott Is The Bad Boy We All Loved

One Tree Hill wouldn't have been the same without number 23.

Bing Images

One Tree Hill his the nail on the head when it came to an edgy, emotional teenager that hit early-2000s kids right in the feelings. It was the perfect drama for the height of emo music that tackled teenage situations. Fans love the situations, drama, relationships, characters, and everything that this show wrapped up into one. However, this show would have not been the same without Nathan Scott, and here are all of the reasons we loved, and still love, him.

1. His confidence

Cockiness? Confidence? Regardless of how you looked at it, he had it and it made us love him even more.

2. His playfulness

It may have started out as a joke, but how he would joke with Haley made us all wish we were her.

3. His ability to change

Enter Haley - this bad boy and mean kid all of a sudden shows his soft side when the right girl comes along. And we all swoon because of it.

4. His attitude

How he treats his dad with pure attitude, rightfully so, shows us that a tough outer exterior is sometimes necessary.

5. His athleticism

Every high school girl loves a jock and Nathan Scott was the jockiest jock of all. Not only was he athletic, but he knew he was the best basketball player in town, and it made him even hotter.

6. Every girl wanted him

Sure, Peyton had him at the beginning, and then Haley swooped him up and locked him down, but there wasn't one girl who didn't love him (except Haley at the beginning).

7. How he got away with everything

Yes, when he was at his jerkiest, he got away with everything. That's the power of having a powerful daddy and ugh, we loved to hate it and hated to love it.

8. His IDGAF attitude about everything but basketball

Family problems. Parties. School. Nothing mattered but basketball and to be honest, we all wanted to be the ones who changed that.

9. How much he really did care underneath it all

When all was said and done, all Nathan needed was someone to show him that it's okay to be a good person and to care. When he finally did become a better person, we all fell in love with him.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
