My freshman year of college pretty much revolved around the show One Tree Hill. I had never heard of it until my roommate informed me that Monday’s were for “OTH”. I didn’t know what the heck she was talking about and eventually I got roped in. About this time, she started buying all the seasons on DVD. This lead to many weekends where we did absolutely nothing except lay in our tiny dorm-size beds and watch episode after episode. (When we got to the episode where fake Derrick falls out of Peyton’s window, we realized that something was wrong with the next disc in that season…it was a very panicky and emotional 3-5 days for us waiting for a new disc to come in). Not only where we watching them on DVD, but we were keeping up with the current season, watching Grey’s Anatomy, and watching Friends. (I know it sounds like we did nothing but watch tv, but we did go to class…or at least I did). Needless to say, Kara and I became best friends. She is the Monica to my Rachel, the Meredith to my Cristina, and the Peyton to my Brooke. And I have said all of that simply to say that I’m really not a “Brooke” according to this OTH quote:
You know I’ve got this theory, there are two kinds of people in the world. There are lyric people and music people. You know, the lyrics people tend to be analytical. You know, all about the meaning of the song. They’re the ones you see with the CD insert out like 5 minutes after buying it, pouring over the lyrics, interpreting the hell out of everything. Um, then there’s the music people, like Brooke. Who could care less for the lyrics as long as its just got like a good beat and you could dance to it. I don’t know, sometimes it might be easier to be a music girl and not a lyric girl. But since I’m not, let me just say this. Sometimes things find you when you need them to find you, I believe that. And for me its usually song lyrics.
I’m a lyric girl. It’s amazing what will find you when you listen.
[Edit: Kara just texted me saying she was watching the episode I was referring to. What are the odds?]
