Life of a Blogger: Career and Favorite TV Shows

This is a great new weekly meme hosted by Jessi!


Well, that's kind of difficult to explain right now.  I am extremely undecided about I want to do with the rest of my life.  For such a long time I planned on being a Teacher but I figured out that that was just because everyone around me kind of expected me to be a teacher, so I just went with it.  But honestly, I finally 'woke up' and realized that I needed to take my life into my own hands so I decided on Social Work.  I really love kids and I love helping people so I figured if teaching wasn't for me then maybe I could handle adoption or something like that.  That was my goal for a long time, and after I graduated college I planned on transferring after a year off to a four year college to major in Social Work.  But here we are in February, me having graduated in May and I've changed my mind again.  I finally found out what I want to do with my life.  I have found that line of work that actually gets me excited about wanting to go back to school, hopefully in the fall, and if you know me then you know that that is so freaking shocking. Speech Pathology is my calling.  So, that's it for now.  Hopefully.  :)

Favorite TV Shows

Favorite Season:  1-10  haha.  If I had to pick one, it would probably be the first season.
Favorite Episode:  The One with the Two Parties

Seriously, the best show ever.  Ask me any question about Friends and I'll have an answer.  I can quote pretty much every episode.   This is a show that never gets old.  If I'm having a bad day, I know that I can watch an episode and I'll automatically feel better.  Friends isn't just a TV show to me anymore.  It's family, as sad as that sounds.  You know that feeling when you wrap yourself in a blanket on a cold day?  Or when you get to hug a loved one after not seeing them for a while?  That's the feeling I get when I watch Friends.

Favorite Season: Definitely the first
Favorite Episode: Evey Night is Another Story

I started watching One Tree Hill a tad late.  I think I started from season one when it was on season five.  But I immediately fell in love with the show.  It had such a strong balance of teen angst and comedy.  I loved it.  And was so sad when it ended at season nine.  I had grown to love the characters and the relationships.  One word people.  One word.  Naley.  The perfect ship.

Favorite Season: Three
Favorite Episode: Stolen Kisses

This is another show that I started late in the game.  I mean I was only seven years old when it started, but I think I eventually started watching it when I was in middle school.  So, probably around 2003-04.  Dawson's Creek has become that security blanket as well.  Just like Friends, but in a different way.  Friends I go to laugh and feel nostalgia.  This show, however, is also for nostalgia but I feel like I learn some things every time I watch an episode haha.  Yes, the dialogue might be cheesy and kind of advanced for a fifteen year old.  (That's how old the characters were in the first season, and they're using words like 'diatribe'.)  But, I mean, the characters are so real and believable and I could easily relate to them.  Just a great show.  

Favorite Season: Two
Favorite Episode:  Killed by Death

I guess I'm all about nostalgia, haha.  I started Buffy at a very young age.  My mom and I used to watch it together all the time.  And when I was home sick from school, I would marathon Buffy instead of watching Price is Right like normal kids.  I seriously cried when it ended.  I still miss it, but I watch it from time to time on Netflix.

Honorable Mentions:
Gilmore Girls
Greys Anatomy
Teen Wolf  (STILES! :D)
Angel (Spin off of Buffy)
Boy Meets World
