Why I'm So Addicted To Gossip Girl

Why I'm So Addicted To Gossip Girl

Blair, Chuck, Serena, Nate, Dan, Vanessa, Jenny, Eric, Rufus, Lily, Georgina . . . and a million other characters that just pop in through all seven of the seasons of the show. I know that this might be going a tad over board, but I decided to share a little bit on one of my favorite TV shows in the entire universe. Because I love it so very much, I thought "why not explain why it's so incredibly addicting." So here's a little short and sweet summary on why Gossip Girl - an ever popular show that aired from 2007 to 2012, is so incredibly amazing. . .

1. The relationship between Dan and Serena is adorable.

Dan and Serena are connected in someway throughout the entire show. They began dating right at the beginning of season one, and you can tell that Dan is head over heels in love with her, and he continues to be in love with her - regardless of the fact that they break up a million and one times. Together or not, Dan and Serena have amazing chemistry on Gossip Girl. What I also like, is that even when they're not dating, there is some sort of linger throughout most of their conversations. They share a lot of history, and that's something I can relate to with my first love. Their relationship dynamic is very similar to what mine was - but we obviously didn't get married.

2. The dynamics between Chuck and Blair are always entertaining.

For those who already watch the show... do I even have to explain this one??? I think one of the main reasons I'm so hooked on this show is the Chuck-Blair setting, and how they always leave you wondering what's going to happen next. Their relationship is never boring - together or not together. You think they're going to finally end up as boyfriend girlfriend, but then it just doesn't happen. But when they do end up as boyfriend and girlfriend, it's the most beautiful thing ever. Chuck and Blair: the greatest scheming couple in the world.

3. Obviously, the drama, the gossip, the rumors... you know.

I have like, zero drama in my life, so this show satisfies my drama cravings. There's always something going on, and the writers of this show seriously have a lot of creativity in the scandal department. There are so many unexpected twists! Like when Lily and Rufus found out they had a son together, and he's still alive. Or when Georgina Sparks told Dan Humphrey that he was the child of her baby... but turned out that wasn't actually his kid. Oh, man.

4. I can somehow relate to each of the main characters.

For example: I feel like I am most a "Serena" kind of girl. She's charming, outgoing, she falls in love easily, (and has a lot of boyfriends throughout the show...) but she's always dedicated to her first love, Dan. I kind of feel like Blair sometimes because she likes to scheme and plot revenges, which may seem really unlike me, but deep down, I enjoy a little conniving and plotting myself. I can DEFINITELY relate to Dan because he is a writer. He's kind of awkward and neurotic throughout basically all of the seasons, and he feels like an outsider most of the time. I can relate to Nate because he feels like he always has to do the right thing, and he's over all a kind and lovable person. As for Chuck? Well... yeah, I don't know... Oh, and Georgina? Yeah, she's just plain psycho.

5. Everyone is connected in some way.

What I really love about this show is that even though there are so many characters, they somehow touch each other's story line in one way or another. How silly and lame would it be if everyone was kept separate. What's good about all these connections is that it can make up for some interesting episodes and plot twists. I really like that nobody is really left out and there is so much of everyone is intertwined with one another. It keeps things interesting, makes a show a good show, and it's kind of genuine in a way.

6. You always wonder who Gossip Girl is. And it's beautiful.

And when you find out - you're mind BLOWS UP. And then you're filled with nonstop feels, and then realize the show is over and you want to cry, and the call the producers and writers and tell them to make more. But then you're just sitting there, with the credits feeling sorry for yourself because the greatest show ever is now done and that's just sad. So yeah.

7. They all just fabulous and I love staring at their clothes and hair and make up.

It's the Upper East Side. High fashion, elegance, and incredible taste. It's all over the freaking show. Shall I explain more?

8. And finally - Blair and Serena's friendship is goals.

When I was really getting into the show, I realized how beautiful and adorable Blair and Serena's friendship is. I like how it's not just one "perfect" relationship that they have with each other. It's real in it's way that there is competition and insecurities in the Upper East Side, and that growing up in high society is pressuring, especially on two very beautiful girls. There comes a lot of competition, with the spot light and with men and falling in love, and there is a lot of scheming and jealously. They kept their friendship authentic and it fit with the show. Over all, I love love loved how they were always there for each other in the end, despite all of the scandals and hard times. They fought, they hated each other, and they were pure mean girls. But in the end, "Blair and Serena do BFFs best."

Always, XOXO . . . Gossip Girl (;

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
