While I admit that I haven't really watched it the past couple of years, I spent the first 6 or 7 seasons devoted to One Tree Hill nights with the girls.
It filled the void left by Dawson's Creek, and now I'm feeling Dawson's Creek series finale sad all over again. I'd like to say I'm not going to sit at home tonight and watch the finale while crying, but that would be a lie.
I love a good show filled with teenage angst. And by "love", I mean "typically become addicted to."
Nine Things I Learned From One Tree Hill: (Why nine? Because there were nine seasons. Duh.)
:: Even on your darkest day, remember that things get better.
:: We all need a River Court.
:: Sometimes you need others to remind you how strong you are...and that's ok.
:: Don't give your high school valedictorian speech while nine months pregnant.
:: Family is everything...and family isn't always blood.
:: People always leave; but sometimes they come back.
:: Truth is absolute, even when it is cold and hard and more painful than you've ever imagined.
:: Every once in a while, people step up and rise above themselves.
:: We all need a little help sometimes.
The angst-filled teenager inside me is so sad today.
"No matter where you go or who you become, this place will always be with you. There is only one Tree Hill. And it's your home."
