Is It Time, Gossip Girl?

Let me just say that I'm not good at saying goodbye. It's the last thing I want to say to everyone and to anything I love. I guess I have no choice but to learn the art of letting go and finally saying the sad words "goodbye." This time, I'm afraid to utter those words to my most favorite TV series of all time. 

I was in college when I first started watching Gossip Girl. The series was my best friend at nights. It kept me company when I chose to stay at the dorm while my friends party in the top bars in the city. It was my stress-reliever when things at school became worst from worse. Seeing Serena van Der Woodsen, Blair Waldorf, Chuck Bass, Nate Archibald and other characters was my happiness back then. Around late 2009, I stopped watching Gossip Girl when some things in my life demanded more time from me.

It's 2013 and I just realized how much I missed GG. So, I asked my close friend in lawschool to download the Seasons 3-6 of Gossip Girl. Luckily, he did not hesitate and gave me the copies after one week. That's the story of how I reunited with my favorite characters of Chuck and Blair. My days became even better as I watch the episodes. Two days ago, I finished watching all the episodes of Season 5. Now, my dilemma is whether or not I'm ready to watch the retrospective and 10 episodes of Season 6. It's the last Season of Gossip Girl. It means that when I'm down to S06EP10, I will need to say goodbye to my forever-love TV series.  

As what I said above, maybe I just need to master the art of letting go and saying goodbye. Well, I can always watch the episodes over and over again. I'm sure Gossip Girl will give me a good ending so after publishing this post, I will turn my iPad on, visit my VLC Player App and enjoy the series. Am I ready? Maybe yes, maybe no. Only one thing is for sure: I can't get enough of Gossip Girl.

The law of physics dictates that what goes up must come down.

When we've hit our rock bottoms, we wish that someday somehow our fortune would change.

Luck is  funny thing.

I lost my true self but I wanna be found.

Be with us, not against us.

When one door closes, another door always opens. But the question is who's waiting behind it?

The most important thing in a relationship is trust.

Sometimes looking for answers leads to more questions and sometimes you're better off not knowing.

Sometimes showing them that you care means you're letting them go.

You know image is everything.

Everyone has their not-so-perfect secrets.

Question is... Is there room for two?

The more things change... The more they stay the same.

  10. I'm not really a fond of Gossip Girls, probably because me and my college friends used to watch Koreanovelas. But it is never too late to watch it. :) One of my highschool buddy is a GG addict so once in a while she'll tell me what happened and all. And based on her reactions while story telling, I think it is good. I might even enjoy watching it.

  15. I was quite shocked after I finished reading your post on feeling depressed of letting go GG. I thought it was a personal love affair. Since, of course, it was strongly attached GG to you, you found it difficult to have it gone.

  19. I watched the first 2 season but eventually got bored when the storyline seems to be going the usual route of couples exchanging partners and the likes ....

  20. I haven't watched yet this Gossip Girl. Saying goodbye to something that you've been so attached to is actually hard. Hmmmm...I'll try to search this series online and see what I could find.
