Why I Aspire To Be Blair Waldorf

Why I Aspire To Be Blair Waldorf

We all know she's the real Queen B.

"Gossip Girl" is the crown jewel of drama TV shows. If you haven’t seen it, you’re missing out on totally unsuspecting plot twists, suspenseful drama, amazing wardrobes and unbelievable characters, the best one being Blair Waldorf. Blair Waldorf is the Queen B of the Upper East Side, and a true inspiration.

1. Blair has the confidence that every girl should have.

Whether she was strutting through New York in her latest and greatest fashion finds, or taking down an enemy in one of her notorious schemes, Blair always oozed confidence.

2. She executes everything with grace.

Even when faced with a problem, or if a plan blew up in her face, Blair always tried to be like her idol, Grace Kelly, and tried to act in a way of grace and poise.

3. She is independent.

Even though most of us were rooting for Blair and Chuck, we respected Blair because she didn't need him in her life to feel accomplished.

4. She didn't give up on the people she loved.

While we all hated Chuck for not telling Blair how he felt, she didn't give up on him, especially when he needed her most.

5. She knew she was irreplaceable.

While most times she was harsh, and lacked a filter when it came to certain situations, she knew no one could be her even if they wanted to.

6. She's driven.

Blair Waldorf was not one to wait around for things to happen. She went out and made them happen, even if her schemes seemed to backfire.

7. She has big ambitions.

While she may not have gotten into Yale like she wanted, that didn't stop her from dreaming big, and eventually taking over her mother's fashion empire.

8. She respects the fashion world.

While it may be a harsh and cruel industry, fashion is an art, and Blair acknowledged that.

9. She's unstoppable.

She didn't let people's opinions of her stop her from getting what she wants.

10. She's insightful.

She knew what to say, and when to say it.

11. And on top of all of that, she has impeccable taste.

You'd be lying if you said you didn't want Blair's wardrobe, let's be real.

To The Friends I Won't Talk To After High School

I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.


So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.

Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.

We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.

With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.

And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?
