"Girl Meets Bay Window"

Change Is A Part Of Life

"Promise me we'll always be together...we'll always be together."

Every stage of life comes with change. Here is an episode from the spin-off of “Boy Meets World” that really understands just how change can alter your feelings for your favorite place and friendship.

This episode takes you on a journey of seven years into the past, and seven years into the future from present day. Therefore, you see the girls’ at seven, 14 and 21 years old.

In my opinion, the writers did a fantastic job with this story line. The emotional impact is tremendous because you deal with change at every new door or window that you open.

“Girl Meets World” is full of life and school lessons, but one really hit home for me. This lesson of change.

As we get older, things in our life grow with us.

The leading ladies, Riley Matthews (Rowan Blanchard) and Maya Hart (Sabrina Carpenter), are facing the hard truth that high school is coming up and they are not little anymore. The Bay Window is Maya’s safe place and Riley’s place of helping people. Their story began when they were seven years old.

It all started when a seven-year-old, Maya (Ivy George) was scared and ran away from home. She came upon an open window, which is where a seven-year-old, Riley (Lindsey Lamar) is sitting that very day. This is the day that Maya found a safe place from the scary places in the world, and a friend that would always protect her.

Farkle Minkus (Corey Fogelmanis) and Lucas Friar (Peyton Meyer), also tell the girls how special the bay window is to them andhow many memories they have made by just sitting there and talking to each other. This is a place they share, but it is Riley’s bedroom and she wants a more teenager room. Meaning the Bay Window is still decorated the same way it was when Farkle, Riley, and Maya met seven years ago. Even though Lucas has not known them for seven years, he feels like he has because of this safe place.

Riley to Maya: “Your safe place is us. Your safe place is me. Maya: "And I'm yours." Riley:" From the day we met.”

Toward the ending of this emotional episode, Riley and Maya, see their 21-year-old selves sitting and talking in the Bay Window. Adult Riley (Mariah Buzolin) and Adult Maya (Ruby Lewis) give their two younger selves, a glimpse into the future of the Bay Window and friendship.

They are saying goodbye to their safe place and the memories in it, but they will always have a place for them.

By the conclusion of the episode, the girls have learned that when they are together, change is good. Even though they are growing up, their friendship will never die.They are each other's safe place.

This may just be a Disney show, but this is a real situation in everyone's lives no matter what age. Sometimes we just want to stay little forever and not put away old memories to make room for the new ones. You will always have those memories because they make you the person you are growing into a little at a time. Change can be scary and overwhelming, but it can also be the best thing that could possibly happen to you.

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?
