There’s Only One Tree Hill

The end of an era.

Tonight I cried my way through the final episodes of one of the greatest shows I have ever seen. I sang along to Gavin deGraw, cried when Keith showed up at Dan’s hospital bed, remembering back to when I first started watching this show. This show has taught me so much about people, about love and friendships, passion and dedication. It introduced me to “hos over bros”, alternative music, the dangers of webcams, fantasy boy drafts and the amazing Jake Jagielski. The mixture of sports and music and books and growing up in a small town just completely spoke to me as a young girl still finding her way. My love of basketball and certainly my belief that sports matter and that they can do amazing things is constantly affirmed by this show. It may seem like just a TV show, but I can honestly say I would not be who I am today without it. I am going to miss it so much. It’s like a friend who knows just what to say in every cirumstance. Nothing could take its place.

I don’t want to be
Anything other than what I’ve been trying to be lately
All I have to do
Is think of me and I have peace of mind
I’m tired of looking ‘round rooms
Wondering what I’ve got to do
Or who I’m supposed to be
I don’t want to be anything other than me

  1. I know exactly what you mean. One Tree Hill has come to mean so much to me. My teenage life would not have been how it was without it. Actually, my life wouldn’t be the way it is without One Tree Hill.
