xoxo, gossip girl

"Welcome to New York's Upper East side where the wealthy and connected mingle at benefits and try to deal with their always dramatic love lives, not to mention picking colleges. Blair Waldorf is the so-called toast of adolescence in her world; she and her friends go to a prep school and fancy parties with their rich parents. Blair is envied by her adversaries because she is thought to have the perfect life, not just because of her gorgeous boyfriend, Nate Archibald, but because she's also planning on getting into her dream college,Yale. Her seemingly perfect life is interrupted by her ex-best friend, the beautiful Serena van der Woodsen, coming back into town after getting kicked out of boarding school. Serena comes back into her life, and into the eyes of Blair's boy friend. When everything Blair knows starts to fall apart, everyone will realize that her life is far from perfect. Will life in the the Upper East Side redeem itself of what it's really supposed to be? Or will the false facade reveal that the rich have the same problems as the not so rich (Jenny and Dan Humphrey), if not more. And just maybe Jenny and Dan are all the more happy with their simple, not so expectant lives."

for nothing better to do, i randomly picked a new tv series to watch. and what do you know?!! i loved it. i just finished 13 episodes of gossip girl. need to wait until after april 21 to watch the next one.

the "gossip gurl" in me

i LOVE (Philippine Entertainment Portal). does that make me a gossip girl? never a day goes by that I dont visit this pinoy showbiz site. haha keeps me posted with the 'current events'. beats reading stuff about our farce-ridden government. *sigh* what drives a gossip girl being into one. maybe because i think i lead a boring life? or i just dont wanna dwell on my life and its frivolities? hmm.. defense mechanism?



I Am A Beautiful Old Person
by Eleanor Roosevelt

Many people will walk in and out of your life,
But only true friends will leavefootprints in your heart.
To handle yourself, use your head;
To handle others, use your heart.
Anger is only one letter short of danger.
If someone betrays you once, it is their fault;
If they betray you twice, it is your fault.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
He who loses money, loses much;
He who loses a friend, loses much more;
He who loses faith, loses all
Beautiful young people are accidents of nature,
But beautiful old people are works of art.
Learn from the mistakes of others.
You can't live long enough to make them all yourself.
Friends, you and me....
You brought another friend....
And then there were 3....
We started our group....
Our circle of friends....
And like that circle....
There is no beginning or end....
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is mystery.
Today is a gift.

i watch gossip girl too! i read the books before the tv series got created kaya naexcite ako nung narinig kong gagawing tv series. (pero iba storya sa books).

pag meh time ka, maganda din yung books.. though baka maweirduhan ka kasi iba yung character nila.. same names, pero iba personality like dan, chuck, vanessa.
