Woody And Buzz Have Been The Original Bromance Since 1995

Woody And Buzz Have Been The Original Bromance Since 1995

You've got a friend in me.


A brOTP is kind of like an OTP (one true pairing), but instead of being anything romantic, it's just two very close best friends, and it doesn’t even matter if they’re a guy and a girl. It’s the 21st century, it is possible for guys and girls to just be friends. For me, the original brOTP would have to be from watching the "Toy Story" series. It can’t get any more bromantic than Woody and Buzz Lightyear.

Woody and Buzz started off as rivals in the first movie, mainly because Woody was jealous of Buzz getting all the attention from their owner, Andy. I think the main reason why I wasn’t particularly pulled to this movie as much as the other two was because I was a little tired and bored at how drawn out the producers made them develop their friendship. I mean, Woody spent about half of the movie trying to get rid of Buzz and he almost sort of succeeded when he pushed him out the window, but like they could’ve had some sort of truce or something in the middle. I don’t know, I guess the producers thought the way they did it would make it a good movie, and I’m not one to disagree, it is a good movie, and I guess Woody made up for everything by saving Buzz from blowing up so it’s a win-win for everyone.

The second movie didn’t have as many Woody/Buzz broments, putting in some new characters for Woody to know in place of that, but Buzz did spend like the majority of the movie going on a life-or-death mission to save him from his kidnapper, which shows pure dedication and a great change in their friendship compared to the first movie. The fact that Buzz would risk life and limb, crossing traffic-filled streets and walking long strides, no matter how much his troupe complained about the distance is a beautiful thing and I think some people underestimate the strength that their friendship has and how much they would do for each other.

“Woody once risked his life to save me. I couldn’t call myself his friend if I weren’t willing to do the same.” - Buzz Lightyear (Toy Story 2).

Cue the feels.

And this:

“When it all ends, I’ll have old Buzz Lightyear to keep me company. For infinity and beyond.” - Woody (Toy Story 2)

And let’s throw this in for good measure:

Cue the tears.

They are the first example of a bromantic relationship I was ever exposed to in my childhood. Their bromance is one of the best ever in any of my fandoms, and I always look back on this first out of all of them whenever I think of it or need inspiration.

No matter how old you get, you can always find your way back to the roots of your beliefs and your interests. Woody and Buzz’s friendship has taught me many lessons in my lifetime, including the one crucial one that ties everything together: Even people who are completely, unequivocally different from each other, can be the best of friends.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
