So I have some really sad news everyone…
There has been a terrible break up in my life and I’m heart broken. I have all of this extra free time that I now just spend thinking about our past and even when I try to distract myself it’s all I can think about. I just don’t understand how it could end…we’ve been through so much together. That’s right: I’m done with all five seasons of Gossip Girl on Netflix which means there are only ten episodes left (season 6) until I’m completely alone. The impeding doom is killing me. It’s anxiety like woah. Jeff keeps telling me that I should move on, even suggesting that I start a new show…Downton Abbey but I can’t imagine spending that much time or sharing that much of my life with anyone else.
The Best Lessons I’ve Learned
in Life from Gossip Girl:
1) It’s easy to loose yourself in too much eye makeup. Case in point…
every eighth grade girl Little J. Jenny Humphrey used to be my absoloute favorite character. She was Cindy Lou Who, it doesn’t get cuter than that. But then she started partying with crazy models and dressing in all black and the next thing you know…full on raccoon eyes. Then she’s kicked off the show and “living in Hudson” with her mom.
2) True friends will stand by you no matter what. If you hook up with their boyfriend, wreck their marriage, destroy their family, post their diary online…on the Upper East Side it doesn’t seem to matter. Blair and Serena are BFFs through thick and thin and I think that’s a valuable lesson that we can all take away from the show. Although I think it’s fair to hope that none of my friends ever put me through any of that.
3) Every Outfit looks better with a headband. Thanks for that one Queen B. Before Gossip Girl I’d pretty much written off headbands after second grade but I was making a serious mistake. Headbands make the perfect addition to any outfit and really just take you to the next level of elegance. From sleepover to soiree…from Dan to Chuck.
4)You can answer any question with”Because I’m Chuck Bass”.Seriously though…I love Chuck Bass…favorite character ever, hands down. At first he’s utterly despicable but then one thing leads to the next and he has a cute dog named Monkey and is trying to win Blair back and every girl out there is secretly wishing for their own Chuck Bass (never mind the mistresses and crazy drug problems).
5) You create your own fairytale. I’m pretty sure Blair or Serena actually went on a little rant about this one. I know I haven’t seen the last season but I refuse to believe that Chuck and Blair don’t end up together…I mean…seriously. Blair married a prince (A REAL LIVE PRINCE!) but still wanted Chuck. Chuck could have had pretty much any girl in all of Manhattan but he waited for Blair. If anyone spoils their fairytale happily ever after for me I’ll hunt you down, fyi.
So now I’m just waiting to buy (and watch) the last season with L and Jeff. Part of me is eager to see what happens, who Gossip Girl is, etc, etc. But most of me is just angry. How could it be ending so soon? I feel as if things have just started. I don’t know exactly how I’ll feel when I finish season six but probably something like this:
and then this…
Now I’m off to eat macaroons in the bathtub and hopefully drown my sorrow.
