Why I Love #Olicity

Oliver: “If I’m going to be Oliver Queen CEO, then I can’t very well travel down 18 floors every time you and I need to discuss how we spend our nights.”

Felicity: “And I love spending the night with you. Three–Two–One. I worked hard to get where I am and it wasn’t so I could fetch you coffee.”

So I love Olicity. I know that eventually, according to the comicverse, Oliver Queen will end up with Laurel Lance. 

Okay.

Laurel-Lance-Arrow48a8461c307c1c15c7a8202187dabc9d_DinahLaurelLance

First of all, Laurel (played by Katie Cassidy, but I’m not going to get into that now) is really annoying. There was this one user in tumblr and s/he pointed out that from season 1, laurel was already annoying, and I couldn’t agree more. I really did not like her at all I was all for Olicity. Laurel became such a pain in the ass because first, she was all high and mighty “you cheated on me Oliver and with MY SISTER!” I was like. “LAY IT ON HIM!” and then she got together with Tommy, which was fine. I would have been happy if they kept it that way. I was happy with Oliver having to deal with his feelings for Lauren even if his best friend was dating her and banging her. I get that but then they threw in that love triangle thing, which was inevitable, of course, but I hated it. Absolutely hated it. I was fine with Tommy and Laurel and I would have totally gone to a wedding for those two but NOOO! Also, I hated it when Laurel got super pissed when Ollie and Sara started dating. I get it your sister slept with your boyfriend when you were still dating. Okay I get it, girl. But come on, you mourned Sara and now that she’s alive you’re getting mad simply because of something that happened 5 years ago. Yeah hoes over bros and your sister totally screwed you over by screwing Oliver but you’re not the same girl as you were when Oliver and Sara left and neither are they.
So even if Olirel (which totally sounds like a medicine by the way) is the end game for the comic, I am still holding out that given that they brought in Sara as the Canary, maybe there might be a chance for Olicity to happen and not have it as just fan service. I can cite an example where the CW has taken liberty over the plot, Gossip Girl. In the books, if I remember correctly, Nate, is a main character fought over by Serena and Blair, he chooses Blair then chooses Serena then sails away. So who wanted an ending like that with no resolution (no offense, Cecily von Zeigasar, I do love your books) so they made Blair end up with Chuck. I would have wanted Serena not to end up with Dan (come on!) simply because of what he did (I mean that’s borderline sociopath behavior).

Second, as much as I love Sara, she knows Oliver Queen and his other side, she knows everything there is to know about Oliver and she understands him deeply in a way that Laurel can’t, but sometimes I just feel that even she has too much baggage to bring into that relationship. I love Sara, I do. I mean Sara (played by Caity Lotz) totally kicks ass and is way more proficient in defending herself which is a total plus for any girl. WOOHOO TO GIRL POWER! What irks me though, as I mentioned, was that Sara herself has so much baggage to deal with too, her family, her experience, adjusting to society, League of Assassins, so I think her priority right now, should be herself. My friend and I were discussing the show and he said that eventually I would end up liking the pairing of Oliver and Sara, and I did. I just didn’t like them as much as I liked Oliver and Felicity. I do believe that because I like Sara more than Laurel, and if CW does sort of kinda stick to the comic book story where The Green Arrow ends up with The Black Canary then maybe, I don’t know, by some miracle if Sara will be released by the League of Assasins, then maybe just maybe I would be willing to support that. I appreciate and respect Sara. I really do that’s why I totally prefer her to Laurel. Way better.

Third, any other person, simply put, they might not have as much baggage as Sara but they will never know Oliver, and it would be unlikely that he would ever tell them his secret.  Period. End of story.

                

Finally, this is why Felicity is perfect for Oliver. I know that Sara is way cool and can totally handle herself, and Laurel is supposed to be the end all and be all of the storyline but get this:

1. Felicity knows Oliver and The Arrow. He knows he can trust her. Always. 
2. Felicity, may not know how to handle herself sometimes but then she is brave enough to know what’s at stake. Remember that scene when she was be held hostage by Slade and Oliver was made to choose between Laurel and her. She didn’t beg, and she didn’t ask to be saved. Probably because she had the antidote with her but still. Having a knife to her throat, I would have screamed and fainted. Way brave. 
3. She knows how to stand up to Oliver. I mean how scary does Stephen Amell look when he glares at you? ’nuff said.
4. And whether he likes it or not, he will always have Felicity and he wants to know that Felicity will always have him. Remember that time when Moira was supposed to make a speech, I think, or when she was supposed to be announcing her candidacy, Oliver told Felicity, “you will never lose me.” Oh! That absolutely killed me! Absolutely! Aside from their other scenes!

This wasn’t meant to convince you to be an Olicity shipper but if you were, then YAY! If not, I would love to hear your thoughts on why you ship who you ship!

 

Love Always,

STRANGERS

There are moments in life that have stood out alot in a person’s memories. There are so much of it. Good and bad, alike. The likely chance that it is good, is less. See this is what I don’t understand. A bad thing happening to someone, embarrassing someone and not you is, well, not happening to you. So how is it that you have endured this “event” when you were not the one being shouted at. No? Oh! You must have been the one shouting. Wait. No? Really? Then who were you? Oh. A spectator. So how did it affect you? Embarrassed you? Why? So what then? It didn’t happen to you. You were not the one yelled at and you weren’t the one embarrassed by a peer in front of your peers. Clearly you were NOT the one the center of the entire moment. Nope. You’re not. Don’t try. Give up. You’re. NOT. Stop saying how much you’ve endured for that. What did you endure? Embarrassment? Who endured more, you, a spectator who happens to be of kin to the fellow being screamed at or the fellow himself. OBVIOUSLY, the fellow himself has endured more. So get off your high horse and realize that you were actually riding a donkey. EEEEYAAAHHH.

5 Criticisms Of How I Met Your Mother‘s Ending (And Why They’re Invalid)

This is the only blog post that makes me thing, “oh that ending, because of what this person wrote, is actually compelling.”

Thought Catalog

The Internet exploded overnight when the final episode of How I Met Your Mother aired. Blogs, forums, and message boards flooded with angry fans claiming they wanted the last nine years of their lives back. I sympathize with these people. I really do. I’ve been a die-hard HIMYM fan for the last near -decade as well, and the finale was certainly not what I expected.

But I loved it.

Flawed as it was, I think the finale of HIMYM was perfect. And I’d like to respond to the five major criticisms of why it was not.

1. But Tracey was “The One” for Ted!

Tracey was perfect for Ted, so much so that it became borderline unbelievable by the end of the series. But everyone complaining that Ted and Tracey were destined for each other are forgetting one key factor: Ted was never Tracey’s “The One.” Max was.

If we…

5 Things Men Need To Learn About Women

JamesMSama.com

Sure, we have all met some women who seem to be more complicated than Chinese algebra. Even the famous Oscar Wilde remarked: Women are meant to be loved, not understood.

But, I do think that as men, we over-complicate women because we expect them to be just like us. It’s natural for anyone to project their own qualities onto others and become confused when they don’t fit the mold, but once we step outside of ourselves and see people as they are, and not as we are, our vision becomes clearer.

It doesn’t matter what you say, it matters how she feels.

A woman’s honesty to herself is unparalleled, because her self-esteem is rooted where it should be, in herself. You can call her beautiful or sexy or gorgeous every single day, but if she doesn’t feel it, it won’t get through to her.

You need to make her feel

16 Weird Things Best Friends Do That Prove They’re Your Soul Mates

Thought Catalog

1. They help you decipher reality through intricately theorized empirical evidence you jointly gather from Facebook and Twitter. Oh, the person you like tweeted that they are tired today? Yeah they’re tired. Of missing you. Not to mention you talk about the same things re: your crush/ex/whatever and somehow it always seems like fresh, original conversation.

2. You (platonically) sleep in the same bed and even cuddle and don’t think anything of it.

3. You give each other all of the really extremely intimate details of your personal lives and nobody cringes or says they don’t want to know about that… you just nod and continue to analyze. And then ask the pressing questions no one else will.

4. They know all of your passwords and you can essentially combine your social media outlets to create power houses for creeping. Just another little perk of having someone who trusts you…

Friday Freedom: A Step to Something (un)New

November 1.

Today is the day most people celebrate their loved one who have passed away and I, along with countless other people, are going to celebrate their dearly departed. As a way to keep track of myself, for something that I have never really been comfortable with sharing, I am starting something new today. I have fully committed to losing weight for myself and for my cousin’s wedding for the next year. See here’s the thing. I used to be an athlete– a swimmer, specifically– I entered swimming because I needed a way for me to lose weight during that time. When I started to seriously train, I started the summer before 3 year of high school started, and in the span of a year, without seriously watching what I ate, I was able to move from weighing in at 155 to 136 pounds. Though to me, every time I looked in the mirror I still saw myself as someone who was still 155. I just noticed the fact that I lost weight through the pictures that I saw much later on. 

Now, sad to say, I am standing at 5’5″ weighing in at 175. The opposite thing happened to me when I stopped swimming and entered college. I stopped because of academic reasons, I didn’t have enough time for it anymore. So I stopped. That was a wrong move. What was wrong was that after swimming, I didn’t go to the gym. Or choose another sport. I thought I would remain the same weight since my metabolism had adjusted to swimming anyways. I should have known. I should have known that my metabolism had adjusted. So had my appetite. I was eating the same but not burning the same amount of calories. Now, I am here. I just realized that I had let myself go too much and now, it’s time to take control. Of my academics, sports, extra-curriculars in school and, my weight. I had been looking over my pictures when I was in high school and my pictures now that I am in college. I have grown immensely. I can see rolls of fat in pictures. When I look in the mirror I still see at the very least a 155 pound girl. 

I’m starting something new. Today. I started eating right. Eating healthy. Since last night was halloween, I celebrated my last day of unhealthy eating by consuming cookie dough.

I’ll update tonight, and I will try as much as possible to update every night on what I ate and how I felt. It will be my own experiment on myself. Of course, knowing myself, I will want to fall by the wayside and cheat but I have asked my neighbor and one of my closest friends, Mae to keep an eye on me. Seeing as we live so close to each other and we are quite close compared to my other friends, I know I can trust her. Also, she was one of my honest friends who told me that I was gaining weight. It was a surprise for her because she saw me at my thinnest and happiest. 

I guess I have been in denial for awhile. This is me taking a step to a better and happier life. I am overweight and I am taking back control of my life.

To quote Blair Waldorf, “Destiny is for losers. It’s just a stupid excuse to wait for things to happen instead of making them happen.” I’m going to make it happen. 

Love Always, 
Jaymee

The Graduate

To all my friends who have graduated earlier this year, and just today, congratulations! You’ll rule the world. I know it! I wish all of you the best of luck!

I know it’s not mandatory to give gifts for graduation because it’s your own achievement to have graduated to begin with. Or so they say. Among the countless things that all people all over the world had wanted, want and will want as graduation gifts, the one thing I would really want would be a car.

This was a clip from the movie!

This was a clip from the movie!

Not just any car, the YJ Jeep. I’ve always liked the YJ Jeep ever since I watched Clueless. It was the car that Cher was driving. This is my dream car for my 20s. I’d totally love this car. I’m a girl and some people, I’m not saying all, find it weird that I love cars. I really appreciate the beauty and artistry a car presents, on or off the road. There are a lot of other cars that I would like to have a few years down the line but for now, I’ll be happy with a YJ Jeep.

For all of my friends who got cars when the stepped into college or got one because they finally stepped off,
congratulations and stay safe!

Love Always,
Jaymee
