Life has been kinder to us now. Things have been better. Yet somehow I feel like we don’t see that at all.
Eleanor is the new girl in town, and with her chaotic family life, her mismatched clothes and unruly red hair, she couldn’t stick out more if she tried.
Park is the boy at the back of the bus. Black T-shirts, headphones, head in a book - he thinks he’s made himself invisible. But not to Eleanor… never to Eleanor.
Slowly, steadily, through late-night conversations and an ever-growing stack of mix tapes, Eleanor and Park fall for each other. They fall in love the way you do the first time, when you’re young, and you feel as if you have nothing and everything to lose.

I’ve never been this in love with a book since The Fault In Our Stars. Damn.
Am I the only one that creates playlists for shows? (Part 2) One Tree Hill premiered 10 years ago today! Roswell had ended and the timeslot after Gilmore Girls was filled with One Tree Hill. I liked having two shows to watch in a row, so I decided to watch OTH from the start. High school drama, cute actors and music I listened to, all in one show. Of course, I was in. I loved the couples. I rooted for Lucas and Peyton til the end, but I think this show was more about the friendships- P. Sawyer and B. Davis, Lucas and Hayley, Skills and Mouth, Brooke and Hayley and so on. They were there for each other no matter what. Even after a terrible love triangle went on, they were still friends at the end of it. Even after they had a fistfight on the front lawn, they were still there to save each other from psycho Derek. Even after she start dating her best friendâs jerk brother, he still loved her. (I mean how many times was the line âand I love you for thatâ used. …
I sometimes forget that I’m a One Tree Hill baby. But then I come across amazing articles like this one and I get blown all the way to the past. I miss hearing their music. I miss looking at Peyton’s sad eyes. I miss Lucas’s brooding stare. I miss rooting for Nathan and Haley. One Tree Hill has not only shaped my love for music but also the way I see life (as cliche as that may sound). Gosh darn it. So much feels for tonight, I might need a hundred red M&Ms to comfort me through all this.
