Tonight is the ending of an era, as cheesy as it may sound. For five and a half years, my Monday nights and life have been dictated by Gossip Girl, the Upper East Side, headbands, and scheming; more importantly, it's been dictated by a group of characters who have carried me through some of the biggest changes and transitions of my life. The movie room in Vail was rented out every Monday night for the 2008-2009 school year, more fondly known as freshman year. My best friends and I bonded over the story lines, our love for New York, and an affinity for skipping class to add to that headband collection (You're welcome, J. Crew, Anthropologie, and Forever 21). I've even bonded with people I've never met through talking about GG on here, Twitter, and Facebook. I've learned a lot from this little teen soap. It's taught me to fight for what I believe in, to work hard for what I want, and to never give up on true love. For a few short years, we've all been a part of the Upper East Side. We've dedicated the titles of B, S, Chuck, Dan, Nate, and even Georgina to our friend groups. We've dreamed of eating lunch on the Met steps. We've dreamed of spending our summers in the Hamptons and Paris. We've longed for Chuck Bass. Well, almost six years, major life changes, and an impressive arsenal of headbands later, it's all coming to an end. Tonight, we bid our friend adieu. Tell me what you think when the dust has settled and the headband has been removed.
