Dawson’s Creek Leading to Reflection

I decided to watch the pilot of Dawson’s Creek tonight instead of making brownies which was something I highly debated doing. Then I remembered I would eat the brownies (dark chocolate kind) and so the classic nineties/ early 2000s won my attention. When I was younger I knew this show as being one of my sister’s shows. I have only ever seen a few episodes here or there. It never really caught my interest that much. However, I remember my sister being unhappy with how they ended the show and I remember agreeing with her even though I didn’t totally understand why (I did see the final episode).
So, what is this blog post really about? Well, I watched it. And for some reason it just brought me back to my own high school days. Perhaps it was all the 90’s music or the baggy clothes. Or maybe it was the fact that I was frustrated … watching the show and knowing the ending … I don’t get why Joey couldn’t have just picked Dawson. They seem so right for each other. I guess life doesn’t always turn out the way you planned it in your head when you were fifteen.
I had a plan, you know. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t think my life has in anyway turned out badly. I love my life in so many ways. I have this amazing family that supports me so much. And this crazy awesome job that stresses me out and makes me so happy. And I have these friends that have become family to me that can make me smile with a few words.
You know I think anyone’s life could be a tv show. I’ve always considered mine a sitcom … mainly because of my dating history and my job and the funny people around me … like Juan and Best Friend. Maybe it is more like a WB drama than I care to admit. Maybe it is both. Depends on the day I guess.
Sometimes I think about what it would be like to go back. Redo my high school career with the confidence I have now. Or even just go back and relive studying for AP tests and passing notes with Jean. Then again there is plenty of drama I do not want to do over. No, I don’t want to go back to high school.
But I do wonder a little about what if it had gone as plan? Life. How would I be different and would I like myself as much as I do now? Because over all I feel really good about who I am and who I am trying to be.
I know my thoughts are sporadic. I guess I just wonder if at the end of my tv show I will like my finale … the Happily Ever After or will I just be like … “Joey should have been with Dawson.” It was so clear.
Okay sorry … I’m not even sure everything I have said makes sense. Sometimes you just got to think on paper (in a manner of speaking)

Two of my newest favorite love songs . . .

So, I’m feeling a tad mushy right now. But I am okay with that. Every girl needs her mushy moments. Ha ha. Anyway, here are the two I can’t stop listening to. Your Song by Kate Walsh and I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz.

My new favorite moment in life

I have been watching Scrubs on Netflix. And I have never laughed so hard when watching one of the episodes as I did with this one moment. Seriously, I cry I’m laughing so hard.
