One Tree Hill


My favorite show of all time is of course One Tree Hill! I'm pretty much obsessed with the show. It's an amazing show and has many great quotes to go along with it! It's mainly about teenagers trying to find out who they are in a small town but it's definitely more exciting than just that. I didn't start watching it religiously until about 2007 or 2008. I watched episodes here and there when it was on in like 2003 or 2004 but I always forgot to watch the next episode the next week. Now a lot of people would say this is just another teen drama but I don't believe it is. It has so many great episodes about so many different topics. 

I love the show because of the characters on the show. The main five: Chad Michael Murray(Lucas), James Lafferty(Nathan), Hilarie Burton(Peyton), Bethany Joy Galeotti(Haley), and Sophia Bush(Brooke) all have amazing chemistry together. They are such good friends outside of the show so when they act together, you can tell that they enjoy working with each other. My favorite character is Peyton. She can be very dark and tortured since she has had a lot of bad things happen to her but in the end she comes out as a fighter. I love that she draws and is a music junkie as well. 
Here are some of the drawings that Peyton did. 
I would have to say my favorite season was season 4. It had my favorite couple together(Peyton & Lucas) with some pretty great shockers and story lines. Season 3 is definitely a close second. It had the best episode ever in season 3. Where there was a school shooting and most the characters were trapped inside. It was a very sad episode and it was going to change their lives forever. The other favorite episode of mine is in season 4 when they win the state championship. 
Here are a couple of fan made videos from that episode. This episode was superbly acted by everyone and it really showed that this could really happen anywhere.

As the seasons went by it's definitely gone downhill. To me I stopped watching it after Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton left at the end of season 6. It wasn't the same show without them. I wish they would come back for season 8 but I doubt that they will. I bought season 7 on dvd about two months ago and I've only watched the first two episodes. I can't get into and it just bums me out because this show was awesome and I have to admit season 8 is good so far. I will always be a fan of the main five characters on the show and it even had good story lines with the adults when they were in high school. In season 5 they jumped forward four years after everyone was done with college and it was interesting to see where everyone landed.  

WOW this is a really long post!! But I adore this show too much and love the actors on the show. OH and the music from this show is phenomenal! I download most of the music that I hear in episodes! They know how to use music to go along with a scene. Also, the episodes are named after songs. They've had some guest musical stars on there to perform as well. 

This song is my favorite song! It was featured in one of the episodes from season 1.

This clip is a such a great scene between Hilarie Burton and Sophia Bush. They are best friends in the show and they have had some major setbacks in their friendship. This one has flashbacks but it's the only one I could embed on here.

Here is the last video that a fan made. It pretty much summarizes what One Tree Hill is!

My second favorite show of all time is Friends! I tried updating this a couple days ago but for some reason it was coming up as error. Anyways I love Friends and it's a close second to my number one favorite show which will be unveiled tomorrow or in the next day. It's one of the funniest shows ever in my opinion. I can watch reruns all day and still laugh hysterically. It's a great funny show with some definitely tears scenes.

I didn't start watching it until later in the series, probably in the middle. I was too young when it started but my family always watched it and I was always curious. So they were the ones that definitely got me into the show. I don't know if I have a favorite, I think I love them all equally. But I would say the funniest out the bunch to me is David Schwimmer(Ross). He is such a dork but the way he acts, he makes his character hilarious to watch. Everyone was likable on the show and I don't think anyone got on my nerves ever.

I can't really pick a favorite episode there are way too many to choose from. I want to say that season 4 or 5 was my favorite but I love all the other seasons too. It would be awesome if they had a reunion or a movie soon but it probably won't happen because Jennifer Aniston thinks she has "better" roles to do than Rachel except that's what kind of character she played in since Friends ended in 2004! I'm not trying to be mean to her but it's true she just needs to branch out into different roles. Anyways this show will always be one of my top favorite shows and I wish there were more reruns of this show on TV!

I'm not going to post any videos of Friends because I figure most people have seen the show at least once! Plus, I'm having a hard time embedding videos from youtube for Friends for some reason.
This is probably one of my favorite episodes! It's Chandler & Joey V. Rachel & Monica. They play a game to see which team knows one another better and they bet some of their most treasured things.

Desperate Housewives

Desperate Housewives is my 3rd favorite show of all time! I have to give credit to Nathan and Matt for getting me into the show. I first started watching it in 2009, the beginning of the sixth season. At first I did not want to watch it but I got hooked. So I started watching reruns of it on Lifetime and get caught up but I never watch the full complete episodes sometimes because of me working or school. So I started watching it on Netflix(love by the way) so I can get caught up completely.

After watching the first season, I realized that this could very well be one my favorite shows. It's such a funny show that I've laughed out loud many times. I love the characters on the show so much. I would have to say I like Susan(Teri Hatcher) the best! She's funny and clumsy as hell but she's also a strong woman and all the clumsiness makes her adorable. But I do like all the other characters just as much. I really liked season one because it showed you how the housewives aren't as perfect as they might seem on the outside. I have to say I adore Susan and Mike together! They are definitely the best couple on the show. I can't think of my favorite episode. A lot of them I love and as season 6 started it's gone downhill just like most shows do.

I would say either Season 4 or 5 are my favorite seasons. It's a great show and it's fun to watch. There are definitely some sad episodes that have made me cry and some great acting in the series. I just finished watching season 1-6 recently and now I miss it! Even though I have new episodes to look forward too in this season but it's not the same for some reason. Every time I watch the show, I always think who am I most like? I can't really say one character I'm like the most but there are definitely moments where I go that's definitely would be me!

Here is a video of some scenes from the series. Couldn't find a really good one.

Nip Tuck is one of my favorite shows and always will be. I didn't start watching until the middle of the series started. It was a very provocative show and it definitely pushed the limit. It had so many crazy story lines, crazy characters, and crazy scenes. Right now I am going back and watching it from season one on Netflix. I only watched some episodes from seasons 1-3 and thought I should watch them all. Let's just say that I'm glad I did because now I realize that season 1 so far is the best I've seen of the seasons I've seen.

I just finished watching the episode called Adelle Coffin and it was an amazing episode to say the least. It mainly centered on the suicide of Megan who Sean is having an affair with. Megan's cancer returns after she survived it earlier on and she couldn't go through it again so she decides to end it on her terms. Dylan Walsh(Sean), Julie Warner(Megan), and Joely RichardsonI(Julia) were superb in this episode.

It was a very painful to watch and I've seen some heart wrenching things on TV shows but this took the prize as the most hard to watch. To watching Megan taking her own life, to the funeral, then to Sean admitting to his wife, Julia he was having an affair with Megan it was all depressing to watch. Nip Tuck is probably my fourth favorite show and I think I'm going to write about my other top 3 favorite shows in the next few days. Since I don't like talking what else to talk about on here! I definitely recommend watching Nip/Tuck from season 1-6. As the seasons go on they're not as good as the earlier ones but still watchable.
Here are some clips from the episode.

Italia? Si, per favore!

Padova, Italy
Italy is on the top of my list of places I want to visit. I've been thinking lately that I want to study abroad next year in Italy. I really want to do something that it is out of the ordinary and that will give me a great experience. I would like to take class or two on Italian so I can at least know some of the language before I go. I need to get out of my comfort zone and try something new and exciting. Even though I go to school and work two part time jobs, I'm still sometimes bored out of my mind! It's really starting to aggravate me.

I want to go to Italy because first of all I'm Italian and learning more about my heritage would be really fascinating. Plus, Italy has so many great attractions to see especially with all the beautiful buildings and the meanings behind them. I would love to go to Venice or Rome but if I go to U of M-Dearborn then Padova is the only choice. If I go to Grand Valley State, they have few other different cities including Rome. So it all just depends on which school I attend and which program is best for me. I'm going to try to get some information about each programs from the two schools and see what happens.
Rome, Italy

Today I went to the Southfield Police Department for a school field trip, if you call it that. They gave us a tour of the Department and it was not that interesting as I thought it was going to be. I think the most interesting part of the tour was the K9 demonstration. The police officer brought out his dog to show how the dog reacts to having marijuana in a drawer. Also, another police officer put on a padded coat where the dog attacks him and bites him.

The rest of the tour was okay. I was really hoping we would get to see the jail but that didn't happen. If I become a police officer, I definitely want to be a K9 police officer. I would love to have a dog with me and it seems more interesting than just being a police officer.

As the days go by I get more irritated because I'm still kind of unsure if this is what I really want to do. I look at criminal justice as a very interesting major and the classes I have taken are very intriguing. But more CJ classes I take, it's repetitive information which I guess would obviously happen but I'm getting bored with it. So as of right now I'm at a crossroads in what I really want to do.

P.S. I can't wait for Thanksgiving! I mean everyone is making a big deal about Christmas and Thanksgiving hasn't even arrived yet! Thanksgiving definitely gets the shaft when it comes to the holidays. It's holiday to be thankful for what you have in your life!

21st Birthday!! Best Weekend!:)

Okay I have not been using my blog lately but I figure since it was my 21st B-day on the 13th why not?!
I had an absolute BLAST this weekend! On friday night we went to Amy's house and they surprised me with a huge cupcake that Amy made! It was wasn't cooked all the way but it was good! Then Amy dyed my hair RED! And it turned out really GOOD!
Then Saturday finally came and I had to go shopping for a sexy outfit Went to Express and found two skirts and a dress shirt all for $37! Pretty good for Express! Then Matt & Amy did my hair/makeup and well look at the above picture, it pretty much says it all!! If I ever become famous they are going to be my GLAM squad! Then we went out to eat at Hayden's and Sharon(my boss) got me a $15 gift card there so I got a my first legal drink and it was okay. The food was really good, I would go back again! 

Then I opened my gifts and I got a lot of sweet stuff! Then it was time to get wasted and go to Necto! It was such a fun time, probably one of the best times I've had at a club! Also, it's safe to say that everyone else had a great time too! Even Chelsea who wanted to stay 5 seconds and ended up staying the entire time!! We pretty much danced the night away the entire time we were there! All of us at one point got on the stage and danced! I must of been drunk enough to do that!! 

Then on Sunday I went to Dave & Busters with my two cousins and that was also a lot of fun! We got majorly lost but in the end it was just as fun! I definitely want to hang out with them more, I forgot how much fun it is to hang out with them! So this weekend was the best weekend I've had in such a long time! OH YEAH I won $20 bucks on a $1 lotto ticket my bro got me!
