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.

It's Time To Thank Your First Roommate

Not the horror story kind of roommate, but the one that was truly awesome.

Nostalgic feelings have recently caused me to reflect back on my freshman year of college. No other year of my life has been filled with more ups and downs, and highs and lows, than freshman year. Throughout all of the madness, one factor remained constant: my roommate. It is time to thank her for everything. These are only a few of the many reasons to do so, and this goes for roommates everywhere.

You have been through all the college "firsts" together.

If you think about it, your roommate was there through all of your first college experiences. The first day of orientation, wishing you luck on the first days of classes, the first night out, etc. That is something that can never be changed. You will always look back and think, "I remember my first day of college with ____."

You were even each other's first real college friend.

You were even each other's first real college friend.

Months before move-in day, you were already planning out what freshman year would be like. Whether you previously knew each other, met on Facebook, or arranged to meet in person before making any decisions, you made your first real college friend during that process.

The transition from high school to college is not easy, but somehow you made it out on the other side.

It is no secret that transitioning from high school to college is difficult. No matter how excited you were to get away from home, reality hit at some point. Although some people are better at adjusting than others, at the times when you were not, your roommate was there to listen. You helped each other out, and made it through together.

Late night talks were never more real.

Remember the first week when we stayed up talking until 2:00 a.m. every night? Late night talks will never be more real than they were freshman year. There was so much to plan for, figure out, and hope for. Your roommate talked, listened, laughed, and cried right there with you until one of you stopped responding because sleep took over.

You saw each other at your absolute lowest.

It was difficult being away from home. It hurt watching relationships end and losing touch with your hometown friends. It was stressful trying to get in the swing of college level classes. Despite all of the above, your roommate saw, listened, and strengthened you.

...but you also saw each other during your highest highs.

After seeing each other during the lows, seeing each other during the highs was such a great feeling. Getting involved on campus, making new friends, and succeeding in classes are only a few of the many ways you have watched each other grow.

There was so much time to bond before the stresses of college would later take over.

Freshman year was not "easy," but looking back on it, it was more manageable than you thought at the time. College only gets busier the more the years go on, which means less free time. Freshman year you went to lunch, dinner, the gym, class, events, and everything else possible together. You had the chance to be each other's go-to before it got tough.

No matter what, you always bounced back to being inseparable.

Phases of not talking or seeing each other because of business and stress would come and go. Even though you physically grew apart, you did not grow apart as friends. When one of you was in a funk, as soon as it was over, you bounced right back. You and your freshman roommate were inseparable.

The "remember that one time, freshman year..." stories never end.

Looking back on freshman year together is one of my favorite times. There are so many stories you have made, which at the time seemed so small, that bring the biggest laughs today. You will always have those stories to share together.

The unspoken rule that no matter how far apart you grow, you are always there for each other.

It is sad to look back and realize everything that has changed since your freshman year days. You started college with a clean slate, and all you really had was each other. Even though you went separate ways, there is an unspoken rule that you are still always there for each other.

Your old dorm room is now filled with two freshmen trying to make it through their first year. They will never know all the memories that you made in that room, and how it used to be your home. You can only hope that they will have the relationship you had together to reflect on in the years to come.

Hannah B. Named The Next Bachelorette: Get Excited!!

Roll Tide.


On the season finale of the hit reality TV show 'The Bachelor' Chris Harrison announced the new Bachelorette to be Hannah Brown, affectionately referred to as "Hannah Beast." Hannah made it far in Colton's season of the Bachelor, but hit some bumps along the way. She was involved in serious drama with costar and fellow pageant competitor Caelynn. Not only is Hannah B. known for drama and tears, she is also known for her awkward and often uncomfortable behavior around the cameras. And let's not forget the most awkward first date and toast of all time...Roll Tide!

Despite her awkward and quirky personality, I think the Alabama native is truly a sweetheart. She cannot be judged based on the controversy that took place between her and Caelynn because no one knows the full truth of the story. In my opinion, no one was completely innocent in their "cat fight" but the way in which each girl handled themselves in the resolution of this drama was mature and, quite frankly, impressive. I think Hannah B's season will be full of more tears and could potentially be very uncomfortable to watch at some moments, but at the end of the say, Hannah B. deserves to find love just like any other 'Bachelor' hopeful. It will definitely be an interesting season to watch, so get excited!!
