10 Times We Fell In Love With Gossip Girl

10 Times We Fell In Love With Gossip Girl

You know you love me, XOXO

Gossip Girl is a TV series about the scandalous lives of wealthy Manhattan teenagers. It’s filled with more drama, suspense, romance and humour than any other show, and it’s great for a day of Netflix binge-watching. GG ended after 6 seasons, but fans of the show are keeping it alive by watching and rewatching former episodes. Here’s a list of 10 reasons that we fell in love with Gossip Girl.

1. Three words, eight letters, say it, and I’m yours.

Chuck and Blair had the kind of relationship that a lot of people search their whole lives for and never find. Those two were madly in love, and always ended up finding their way back to each other, no matter what might have happened between the two of them. The Waldorf/Bass relationship made us all want to cry in some episodes, and it made us beam when they were finally married at the end. (Spoiler alert, sorry! XOXO)

2. Lil’ J was so easy to hate.

Did you even watch Gossip Girl if you didn’t totally hate Jenny Humphrey? She was okay in the first couple of episodes, but after that she quickly turned annoying. It was like a common ground between fans of Gossip Girl, we may have all had different favorite characters, but we all collectively hated Jenny Humphrey the most.

3. Waldorf Dreams.

If you love Audrey Hepburn movies as much as most Gossip Girl fans do, it was super cool to see Leighton Meester (the actress who portrayed Blair Waldorf) dressed up like Audrey in all of Blair’s crazy dreams. No matter what was going on in her life, if she had a dream at night, it was based on an Audrey Hepburn movie.

4. Blake Lively.

Blake Lively is gorgeous and sweet, so it’s only fitting that Serena van der Woodsen was too. Serena was that character that no one could ever be mad at for too long, and it was because Blake did such a great job playing the part. She had the sweet, spoiled and sassy down to a tee.

5. Dan inspired us all.

Dan Humphrey not only became a part of the Upper East Side, he also won his dream girl after six seasons of many ups and downs. He made us believe that anything was possible. Lonely boy quickly turned into not-so-lonely boy, and achieved his dreams of being a best selling author.

6. Rufus and Lily.

Yeah, they may have broken up, but for a couple of seasons, Rufus and Lily made us believe that true love would never die (until they got divorced, of course). Something about their story of forbidden love made us all root for them, especially when Rufus nearly stopped the wedding of Lily and Bart Bass.

7. Georgina Sparks.

Georgina may have been a jerk, but she was the kind of jerk you just have to admire. Her scheming was pretty much Waldorf Level and nine times out of ten, she walked away the winner. She may not have had any friends and she had a baby her sophomore year of college, but at least she could ruin a life if she ever needed to.

8. Holiday Episodes.

Nothing was better than a Gossip Girl Thanksgiving or Christmas special, because you got to see so much of New York City in the episodes. It made us all a little jealous of the cast and crew, who got to work in New York City during the most wonderful times of the year.

9. Gossip Girl was a savage.

We were all waiting for who Gossip Girl would “spot” or expose next. She was basically cooler than everyone in the whole show, and finding out her identity during the very last episode was probably the most bittersweet and shocking moment of the whole show.

10. It made us feel like Manhattan teenagers.

Let’s face it, we all wanted to attend Constance Billiard or St. Jude’s and dress in those cool uniforms and eat breakfast with S and B on the steps of the Met. After watching five or six episodes straight, you almost feel like you’re in the show too, until you look out of your window and see your front yard instead of Central Park.

Gossip Girl may have ended, but the show will live on forever in the hearts of the show’s fans. After all, you know you love it. XOXO, Gossip Girl.

College As Told By Junie B. Jones

A tribute to the beloved author Barbara Parks.

The Junie B. Jones series was a big part of my childhood. They were the first chapter books I ever read. On car trips, my mother would entertain my sister and me by purchasing a new Junie B. Jones book and reading it to us. My favorite part about the books then, and still, are how funny they are. Junie B. takes things very literally, and her (mis)adventures are hilarious. A lot of children's authors tend to write for children and parents in their books to keep the attention of both parties. Barbara Park, the author of the Junie B. Jones series, did just that. This is why many things Junie B. said in Kindergarten could be applied to her experiences in college, as shown here.

When Junie B. introduces herself hundreds of times during orientation week:

“My name is Junie B. Jones. The B stands for Beatrice. Except I don't like Beatrice. I just like B and that's all." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 1)

When she goes to her first college career fair:

"Yeah, only guess what? I never even heard of that dumb word careers before. And so I won't know what the heck we're talking about." (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 2)

When she thinks people in class are gossiping about her:

“They whispered to each other for a real long time. Also, they kept looking at me. And they wouldn't even stop." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When someone asks her about the library:

“It's where the books are. And guess what? Books are my very favorite things in the whole world!" (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 27)

When she doesn't know what she's eating at the caf:

“I peeked inside the bread. I stared and stared for a real long time. 'Cause I didn't actually recognize the meat, that's why. Finally, I ate it anyway. It was tasty...whatever it was." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When she gets bored during class:

“I drew a sausage patty on my arm. Only that wasn't even an assignment." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 18)

When she considers dropping out:

“Maybe someday I will just be the Boss of Cookies instead!" (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 76)

When her friends invite her to the lake for Labor Day:

“GOOD NEWS! I CAN COME TO THE LAKE WITH YOU, I BELIEVE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 17)

When her professor never enters grades on time:

“I rolled my eyes way up to the sky." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 38)

When her friends won't stop poking her on Facebook:

“Do not poke me one more time, and I mean it." (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 7)

When she finds out she got a bad test grade:

“Then my eyes got a little bit wet. I wasn't crying, though." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 17)

When she isn't allowed to have a pet on campus but really wants one:


When she has to walk across campus in the dark:

“There's no such thing as monsters. There's no such thing as monsters." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 12)

When her boyfriend breaks her heart:

“I am a bachelorette. A bachelorette is when your boyfriend named Ricardo dumps you at recess. Only I wasn't actually expecting that terrible trouble." (Junie B. Jones Is (almost) a Flower Girl, p. 1)

When she paints her first canvas:

"And painting is the funnest thing I love!" (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 61)

When her sorority takes stacked pictures:

“The biggie kids stand in the back. And the shortie kids stand in the front. I am a shortie kid. Only that is nothing to be ashamed of." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 7)

When she's had enough of the caf's food:

“Want to bake a lemon pie? A lemon pie would be fun, don't you think?" (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed p. 34)

When she forgets about an exam:

“Speechless is when your mouth can't speech." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 54)

When she finds out she has enough credits to graduate:

“A DIPLOMA! A DIPLOMA! I WILL LOVE A DIPLOMA!" (Junie B. Jones is a Graduation Girl p. 6)

When she gets home from college:

"IT'S ME! IT'S JUNIE B. JONES! I'M HOME FROM MY SCHOOL!" (Junie B. Jones and some Sneaky Peaky Spying p. 20)
