Three: Nick and Jess (New Girl)

new girl kiss

For most of the first season fans were thrown from full on sexual tension between these two eccentric people to a few episodes where you couldn't find it with a detective, making for a very confused audience dying to see the First Kiss. A vital piece of information slipped from a fan near by, and fell right on my eager New Girl ears, I now knew, that by the time I got around to watching Episode 15 of Season 2, they would have kissed. Despite knowing this vital twist in the, regrettably predictable story line I was over come with that feeling of joy and excitement you get at the thought of other peoples happiness.

I blame Television Shows for my overly emotional investment in the lives and relationships of other people.

Two: Jeff and Annie (Community)

The last episode to be made, unfortunately without show creator Dan Harmon was a bit of a let down. We didn't have the kind of closure we needed. Yes, Jeff graduates and has a change of heart by deciding to help the little guy instead of going back to working for his old firm and ruining lives. But where's the love? Do Annie and Jeff finally get together and accept the love and uncontrollable chemistry that the show writers spent so much time building up with sly glances and cutesy innuendos. I demand more!


(Also, what's up with all the writing on the blackboard in the Study Room?)

One: Chandler and Monica (F. R. I. E. N. D. S.)

Chandler: “You're so great! I love you!” 
Monica: “What?” 
Chandler: “Nothing! I said, I said "You're so great" and then I just, I just stopped talking!” 
Monica: “You said you loved me! I can't believe this!” 
Chandler: “No I didn't!” 
Monica: “Yes you did!” 
Chandler: “No I didn't!” 
Monica: “You love me!” 
Chandler: “No I don't! Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! Stop it!” 

A List of One to Ten

Welcome to the first of many posts posted from the back row of the computer lab at College. I know right, actually using the school facilitates for something useful instead of sitting out side in the cold listening to peoples conversations.
Weird huh?

For the past, I dunno, 19 years of my life (approximately of course) I've loved television shows and all the people drama that they come with. Who doesn't right?

It started with F. R. I. E. N. D. S waaay back when I was far too young to even understand most of the innuendoes but I loved it none the less and especially all the relationship drama and the feeling of anticipation as to know weather or not Chandler and Monica would be discovered and weather Ross and Rachel would get back together after their infamous "Break".

So, Im compiling my own list of the best TV relationships of all time.

Chai Tea and Hot Chips

We had now made it a tradition to catch up with each other over some Chai lattes and Hot chips at the mall in between our houses.
Te nights always started the same, we would plan to meet at a certain time, but always be late. We would deliberate over what to order, but decide on the same thing as last time. It was nice though. It felt comfortable.
Sometimes I worry that I wont have much to say, but when I get there its always fine and the conversation moves comfortably from one topic to the next.
Its these moments that make me feel the most. I have so many emotions all the time that its hard to think of a time when I don't have something going on in my life. I like talking to her though because it gives me a chance to actualise most of these thoughts. Something that rarely happens in day to day life.
I miss having people to talk to.

The First Day of Winter

The air was crisp and cold as I stepped outside for the first time in what felt like weeks.
The rain had been pelting down all over the city for the past three days and this had been the fisrst time it had let up since it all began. I took a deep breath, letting the clean air penetrate my lungs filling them with cold cold air that felt like I was choking. It tasted so familiar. It tasted like winter felt. the air was thick.
It reminded me of the afternoons we would spend on the field at school when I was younger. The grass would turn yellow and would fall out. We would collect as much of the grass as possible turning it into massive sculptures that could take all week. We developed a sure fire way to collect the grass efficiently, using the cardboard boxes that the fruits were delivered in. They had large holes in the bottom that would allow the grass to shoot up through the holes and be collected in the back. This could only be achieved by running with the boxes across the field. We would gather it all in one area and after deciding on what to make we would set to work. In the morning, the sculpture would be covered with frost and the orange light from the low sun would catch the raised image casting a long shadow across the ground.
The best sculpture we ever made, and probably the biggest was that of a skeleton. After that the teachers banned us from doing this,mostly because the grass was being damaged and I think they thought we were a little weird.
Ill never forget the smell and the feeling of those crispy winter afternoons though. The wind blows right through you and your toes hurt from the cold of your leather shoes while in the sun you could be tanning on the beach. The sun shining down on you, warming your limbs.
I felt like I was twelve years old again.
