i am so terrible at this. hopefully i can actually do this thing this year. i dont know when i will have time for tv, since i have 3 night classes and no DVR (or even VCR) but i will write. yes i will. yes yes yes.

(this time next year, when i'm looking at this and seeing like, 5 posts above it, i'll just laugh and be like, "yeah, i wasn't going to write.")

but if i do write, here's the shows i might write about. by night, so it'll be organized!

-how i met your mother
-gossip girl (maybe. the finale pissed me off, but the promos look fun. paris! clothes! rich people!)
-the event. (maybe. looks interesting.)


-modern family

-the office (maybe. sadly.)
-greys (maybe. the finale was amazing.)
-want to get caught up on community! i watched the pilot and it was hilarious.

nothing. i watch the buffy marathons on logo. and all the boy meets world eps from the week on my parents dvr.

i feel like my list is a lot smaller this year. maybe thats good. i'll have time to try and be a good student, or whatever.

yay tv!

"...we don't really care about the dog."

the fact that it took a very special episode of the bachelorette to bring me out of my blogging funk makes me hate myself a bit, but you gotta do what you gotta do, right?

let me start off by saying that i didn't really watch jake/vienna's season. i had 50 other shows + sorority meetings at the same time, so it wasn't high on the priority list. but i did hear opinions from everyone on the planet. i know everyone hated vienna, blah blah blah. but what i saw tonight was this:

vienna is a little bit dumb. and i mean that in a "bless her heart" kinda way. she seems like a small town girl, who got caught up in hollywood and fairy tale romances and the reality show machine.

jake, on the other hand, came off as a complete and utter tool. the quiet rage at the beginning, the slightly psychotic laughter when he said "fyi, i flew a plane LAST WEEKEND!", and of course, the "STOP INTERRUPTING ME!!!!" complete with raised fist, did absolutely nothing to redeem him in the eyes of the american public. most people i know already couldn't stand him, after this, i don't think he'll have anyone in his corner.

(besides chris harrison, who also reeks of douche and hairspray.)

as for the actual bachelorette section of the show, i was underwhelmed. frank is far and away my favorite, all the other guys fall in the the 'nice, but boring' box. but from the way the previews are going, it looks like frank will break my heart, as well as allie's.

please don't end up being a douchy famewhore, frank! my heart can't take it!

so there was my introduction back into blogging.
see you in another 6 months, kids!

oh hey, i have a blog?

i haven't written in here in 9 months, but last night was the lost finale, and i have a lot of feelings. so here we go:

- i think the main problem i had with the finale (and really the only problem) is kate/jack ending up together. the scene with them kissing on the rock made me throw a pillow at my tv. i have been invested in the kate/sawyer relationship since SEASON 1 EPISODE 8. THAT IS A LONG TIME. so i felt a little jipped that their relationship wasn't even mentioned in the finale. but i have convinced myself that when their plane landed, kate and sawyer stayed together, and she took him to meet his daughter and they were next door neighbors to claire and helped her with aaron and they were all BFFS until they died.

-now on the other hand, i did LOVE sawyer/juliet's reunion. and i guess if you ended with sawyer/juliet you have to put kate/jack together. so i understand.

-i loved all the other reunions. sun/jin, claire/charlie (!!!!) were all adorable and made me teary.

-what happened to desmond?! how did he get off the island?! did he find penny?! what about his baby?! what made him special?! had he died for a little bit, and thats how he knew about the sideways world?!

-so basically the island was the hellmouth, and jacob was buffy, and all the candidates were the potential slayers who have to protect the hellmouth from opening. nice buffy rip off, damon/carlton.

-i love that hurley ended up being the new jacob and BEN was his number two! that was all ben wanted! i've been rooting for ben for a long time, so i was happy he ended up happy.

-speaking of ben, how did they get the tree of him?! they made a huge deal about how heavy the tree was, and then ben is running thru the island?

- i was originally really pissed about the sideways world being purgatory, but i've accepted it now, and think it's really sweet they all found each other. i don't understand why all this stuff happened in the sideways (jack having a son, etc), but it was an interesting storyline for the season.

overall, i have a lot of questions, but i know they will never be answered. so i'm going to be happy about the finale, and thankful for such an amazing show. it's been a crazy 6 years!

thanks for the memories, lost.
