When all of your dreams come true, who’s standing next to you?

I’ve spent the past week or so watching every episode of One Tree Hill in order. Before this I had been watching episodes here and there as my mom watched the series and I watched season 6 and part of 7 but now I’m going to make sure I see all of it. If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend that you start now- it’s on Netflix. The series ran from 2003 to April 2012 and it’s truly a remarkable show. There are certain things about it that don’t quite fit with the fact that these kids are in high school at the beginning but, honestly, while you’re in to it none of that matters. The show isn’t just a petty high school drama, not at all, it’s full of life lessons and it evokes emotion like no other.

One of the lessons within OTH that really stands out to me has to do with one of the shows main characters, Lucas Scott. This is something that kept me up thinking two nights ago and, now that I’ve watched almost an entire season in one day, has been brought back to the forefront of my mind. In the first three seasons there’s this almost love triangle feel between Lucas, Brooke, and Peyton. Lucas’ entire childhood he had been watching Peyton from afar, she was like his dream girl, but once he becomes a popular basketball player, he has a chance with her and also with her bestfriend Brooke. Anyways, the point is that in season 3 he’s dating Brooke, followed by her breaking up with him, and he preaches to others that she’s “the one.” You can see it all over his face and in his words/actions that he truly believes those words. It’s also obvious how hurt he is that Brooke says that she stopped missing him. Any OTH fan knows that *spoiler alert* in the end he marries Peyton. You can apply that time of thing to your own life, especially when you hear the brilliant way the show always begins and ends, the deep and meaningful insights they share. The take away from that part of the story line is that in high school you might fall in love, you might even think that person is the one for you, but you also might get hurt… but that doesn’t mean that life is over. Just because a relationship doesn’t work out, that doesn’t mean that you should stop trying. Someday, you will find the one for you and you will be happy. High school isn’t everything and it certainly isn’t the end.

Merry Ex-mas.

Honestly, if your name is Ethan, stop reading this now. I’m serious; close out of it and just move on with your life, though I’m not sure why you’re still checking in on me anyways. Normally I wouldn’t care if you read my posts, I have nothing to hide, but this is one of those days I’ve experienced many times before. In the past it’s been about different guys, other exes, and a similar, yet different situation. I’ve gone through it with Brad, Jon, even Chris… so now it’s your turn.

This post is about a few things, but mostly it’s about my mother. Before I start this, you have to know that I love her… she’s always there for me and she really is a great person. She’s strong, independent and she’s been through a ton in her life. However, just like all moms do, sometimes she drives me crazy; she tends to be kind of judgemental and even hypocritical at times. Bare with me.

New Angels in Heaven.

I’m sure all of you have heard about the shooting that occurred yesterday. I’m sure you’ve heard the stories of small children hiding in cabinets, bathrooms, and closets… of the teachers who protected them, a few of them even losing their own lives trying to do just that.

I was in gym class, changing in the locker room, when I first heard the news that there had been a shooting in a Connecticut elementary school. My first reaction was that it’s one thing when it’s a high school or a college. You’re sad, it’s tragic, those kinds of things should never happen.. but this wasn’t 15-18 year olds or 20-25 year olds… this was five year old BABIES! They had an entire life ahead of them, futures. How could you look into their frightened little faces and pull the trigger? …They had so much to live for and look forward to, they were taken WAY too soon.

My bestfriend in this world is three years old… she isn’t much younger than those kids who lost their lives. What would I do with myself if it were her in one of those cramped bathrooms thinking that Christmas wasn’t coming for her and that those were her last moments- or, worse yet, what if they were her last moments? It’s so sad to think about teachers like Kaitlin Roig and Victoria Soto who, though I have never met them, became my heroes yesterday.

This is me. You can look at this picture and think anything. You could think “wow this girl is beautiful!” or even “why is she so gross?” That’s all in your perception and it’s an opinion you’re entitled to. Sometimes I look in the mirror and think I look good, other times I hate my appearance, but no matter what there will always be things about me that I’d love to change. I think we all have those small things that we probably don’t ever talk about that we hate about our faces or bodies, even our personalities. Those insecurities plague us! They ruin our self-esteem, out self-worth; these things get into our heads and make us feel horrible about ourselves.

My parents always tell me that I’m beautiful and my grandma thinks I should be beating off the boys. Honestly, I’d really like to know where those guys are, because I’ve been waiting patiently for years with this damn stick. After having your family pump up your ego, you go to school and realize that no one there actually thinks you’re very attractive; my dad says that the boys in high school are just too shy, but let’s be honest, they are outgoing enough to be with other girls, right? So what makes us feel this way about ourselves? Why don’t we always feel pretty?
