Favorite T.V. Couples

I decided to try a different post today than I usually do. I think lists are fun and favorite lists are even funner (yes, I know that is not a word) and I want this blog to be fun, not only for you but for me as well.

I don’t watch too much television, mostly because I am realist and most shows baffle my mind on the situations characters get themselves in. However, every once in a while I do stumble across shows that capture my attention and forces me to invest my precious time. It even less likely for me to invest in loving a relationship between two fictional characters, but guess what? These relationships made me do it and I loved watching every step of their relationship.

Oh and in case you didn’t know, *spoilers ahead*

Dwight and Angela – The Office

Oh were you expecting Jim and Pam? Yeah, no. I did like their relationship, but you always knew they were going to be together. There was no surprise, even when she was with Roy you knew it was coming. Dwight and Angela though, they were entertaining. They seemed to always love each other even when they were apart and their strict attitudes and opinions just complimented each other. I am so glad that they finally got together in the last season and their wedding was one of the highlights of the last season.

J.D and Elliot – Scrubs

I absolutely love Scrubs. It had everything I needed, Comedy, Drama and a T.V. Couple I absolutely adored (No I am not talking about Turk and J.D. That is another list for another day). Elliot is a underestimated character and one of my favorites, her neurosis made me related to her in a way I never had with a character before. When they first got together I knew it was not going to work out, characters needed to grow and mature and that is exactly what they did. By the time they really truly got together towards the end of the show, I knew they were the one for each other. I loved them so much that when the season finale aired I almost cried, and I never done that before.

Willow and Oz – Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Love this little geeky couple to death, so much so that when Oz got wolfy with that girl whose name is completely forgettable I was crushed. How dare he break my poor Williow’s heart, but their quirky love made me believe that I could have a relationship that was simple and sweet. Then he left the show, and I was even more crushed because no matter how much I wished he would come back so they could be together again, I knew he wouldn’t. I got over it though because…

Willow and Tara – Buffy the Vampire Slayer

This couple is why I was able to get over Willow and Tara. Their loving and giving relationship helped get over my initial Oz heatbreak, up until of course Tara was killed off in the most horrible and stupidest way. You thought I was crushed about Oz? well at least he is still alive… My heart went out to Williow and I thought it was pretty understandable when she went to the darkside. Honestly when they introduced Kennedy as a love interest I rebelled and hated it. There is only one girl for Willow and that is Tara.

April and Andy – Parks and Rec

I almost went with Ben and Leslie, because Leslie is my fictional television BFF and Ben is Fictional Husband, but ultimately April and Andy won out. Why? because they compliment each other so well and they remind me of My husband and I. April is always supportive of Andy no matter what he does (as long as he doesn’t get hurt) and Andy’s kindness is a great balance to the rage that April can bring. They mesh so well together and stayed together for so long, still completely head over heels in love with each other that I enjoyed watching as their love matured.

Dan and Blair – Gossip Girl

I’ve never abhorred a show more than I did with Gossip Girl. Why I started watching in the first place is a mystery, why I continued watching it even after they went off the deep end with some of the story arcs? Well I think it is because I was temporarily insane, or it could be because I was waiting for these two to get together. Was I the only one who thought they would have been great together since their first on screen meeting? I hope not. When they finally did get together my heart was happy, of course it didn’t last long because the writers of this show do not understand that happy, non abusive relationships are better than toxic ones. Think of the message you are sending to young girls! I should stop before I ranting…

Monica and Chandler – Friends

This is couple I based my future relationships on. Why because they are perfect. I was never happy with the Ross and Rachel will they, won’t they plots and while yes I am happy that Rachel got off the plane. I am even happier that Monica and Chandler decided to stay on London Time. Their foundations were so solid and stable and just plain wonderful. Yes, they had their ups and downs, with not being able to have children and what not but it was okay because they knew they could get through it together. #relationshipgoals

10 Things I hate about me

So I know this isn’t very good thing to do, you have to love yourself, think highly of yourself and if there’s something you don’t like you change it…Blah, Blah, Blah…

I think this is fun and so very true. There are things I don’t like about myself, would I change these things? No, Absolutely not. Why? because despite not liking them, it’s what has made me, me. I am not intentionally hurting anyone, and in order to love yourself, you must embrace yourself flaws and all.

So with that in mind here are The 10 Things I hate about ME

1. My lack of brain to mouth filter
I seriously lack a filter, when I get excited, mad or really any sort of emotion. I loose track of things I say and since my thought process seems to go from 0 to 60 in half a second I try to say everything I’m thinking. This includes random thoughts, TMI, curse words and pretty much everything. I tend to blurt out whatever I’m thinking and end up with a foot in my mouth. This is not the most pleasant feeling.

2. My extreme need for coffee
If it’s available I will drink it, not matter the time. If I see a coffee shop (doesn’t matter which one) I will immediately need to have it. It’s some weird addiction that is a bit hard to control. Does this mean I give into the urges? Absolutely not, I do have some willpower ya know.

3. I need to sing a long if I know the song
My husband hates this, but since I’ve been with him for over a decade I can see how this would bother someone. Most of the time I don’t know I’m doing it, I just start to. Plus I can hear a song once or twice and learn the lyrics. Song lyrics are just easy to memorize, I’m probably pushing something important out but whatevs.

4. I procrastinate
I will leave something to the absolute last minute of I can, and I hate that I do this. Out of everything in this list, this is the one thing that I actually want to change. Due to my procrastination I put myself under unnecessary stress and well as well all know that is not good for you.

5. I’m suspicious
I’m suspicious about everything, If your nice, mean, or just walking by I will be suspicious about you. I think everyone has some sort of ulterior motive that I need to figure out. ‘Your smiling at me, what the hell are you planning person’   is pretty much my thought on a daily basis.

6. I don’t like shorts
So I don’ even know why, but I refuse to wear shorts in public. It has nothing to do with showing my legs, since I love skirts and dresses, but shorts are a absolute ‘Nope’ in public. I wear them around the house if I don’t have anything else to lounge around in, or if it’s just hot and I don’t wanna be around in my underwear. I just don’t do shorts.

7. Horrible pronunciation
So when I speak, I tend to mispronounce words, maybe because like I’ve said before I think pretty quickly and I need to get the words out before I get to the next thought and loose track. My husband loves pointing it out, he’s like the damn speech police.

8. I talk with random accents
So not only do I mispronounce words, but apparently random accents make their way into my talking as well. Once again my husband the speech police has pointed this out on many occasions. Why I do this, I do not know. I have a Californian accent and honestly if I tried to actually do a accent I fail miserably.

9. I have the urge to buy things on sale

my pocket book hates me, whenever I see something on sale I have the urge to buy it. While some of these sales are really great, some not so much. My mind sees a sale sign and I need to look and I’ll most likely buy something. It’s oh so bad.

10. I want to do too much at one time
I always have ideas, thoughts, urges and hobbies that I want to do or try. This leads to me putting too much on my plate at once and I get stuck with so much to do that I stress myself out and get sick. I like to keep busy but I need to learn how to find a balance so I’m not driving myself down.
