New Girl (with the cute guy)

I think we all have a type out there. The bad boy biker type. The preppy tool (which my school happens to be full of by the way). The guitar playing stoner. And of course the nerdy dorks. We all have a type. However who would have thought that a lazy, bartending, slightly alcoholic, paranoid roommate would be a type girls across the county would dream about.

That right ladies and gents i’m talking about Nick Miller. He is (in my opinion) the cutest funniest character on the hit Fox Television show “New Girl.” We start off the show introduced to the four main guys, Nick, Schmidt, Coach (who somehow disappears for a few seasons with like no explanation at all but thats fine) and Winston. At first I didn’t really know how I felt about him. He’s no doubt a good looking guy but in the beginning I had a hard time trying to read his personality. But soon enough you learn that even though he has a kind of hard exterior he’s a big lover on the inside who cares about his friends.

He and Schmidt’s relationship is completely precious. Schmidt (who I would classify as the preppy tool type) looks to Nick as kind of a support system. And Nick being Nick sort of like to diss him sometimes and act like a “macho man” but as we saw in him pretending to be Michael Keaton for Schmidt, attending an Indian speed dating convention, pretending to be Jewish and make out with a Grandma, he really does care. He would go through many shenanigans and crazy situations just to make Schmidt happy. Even though more often then not he just wants to hit him too.

Then you have Nick and Winston’s relationship who’s dynamic is definitely a little different. Since they were childhood friends the two of them have some very interesting stories together. Winston out of the group is the most insecure however he always has Nick there to keep him in check. From helping him face his fears of the dark to helping him get girls, because yes we all know Winston can sometimes struggle with that, they have a true friendship. However I do find it weird how Nick’s Dad may and or may not have loved Winston more as a son. To each is their own I guess????

Nick and Coach have a weird dynamic. The show never really focuses in on the two together so their’s not much there. However when the two do get together it is absolutely freaking hilarious. A personally favorite episode of mine is when Nick, Cece and Coach all decide to get high together and somehow end up attending a part. Filled with police officers. Oh and did I forget to mention that they were all incredibly obviously stoned. It was Coaches first time though and Nick the entire time kept telling how high he was acting. Meanwhile Nick is clearly much more high then him and Coach seems almost completely sober. I’m obviously not doing the scene justice so I just recommend watching it.

Next we have Nick and Tran. Let me tell you this is my favorite of all the possible relationships on the show. I mean come on this angry man just somehow meats this non talking, who knows where he’s from, elderly man in the park??? And somehow they become best friends??? It’s freaking amazing!! He just gets so giddy around him and Tran is just genuinely so happy to be around him I love it. Nick is the talker of the two which is completely wild. Tran literally never talks. Like ever. And yet somehow Nick knows exactly what he’s saying. I love it. That is true friendship right their and Nick often refers to Tran as his bet friend which I love. The two of them together honest to God just makes my day.

Lastly we have Nick and all his lovers. From the gross bar girls he would bring home to Jess he is so funny in his shenanigans. Obviously though I supported he and Jess’s relationship the most. The transition from roommate, to friend, to girlfriend, back to friend is extremely hard. The two of them handled the situation very well though. Nick and Jess together was just adorable though, he would make her breakfast in bed, supporting her in all the crap she was trying to do, he was there for her. He got off the plane to make sure she would go to England to see her new boo, missed his flight going home so that she would be happy on Christmas and see the lights. And who could forget how much she supported him when his Dad died and how much they needed each other. And when things didn’t work out between them in the end, if you ask me Nick was slightly too immature for her (not too immature for me though !!) they tried their best to remain friends. And it worked, I mean don’t get me wrong it was SUPER awkward at first. Who could forget the couples cruise episode. It was freaking cringe worthy. But eventually they worked though it and became best friends again. Just as what they were meant to be. Now i’m only on season four of the show so things could change in the later seasons but as of right now I am content with where they are in their relationship.

All in all Nick Miller is a pretty stand up guy. Despite a few flaws, profusely sweating when lying, not being able to call anyone to fix anything and being slightly paranoid about the government/basically everything in the world he is a cutie. From his scruff to his crooked smile I just can’t (and don’t want to) get over him. Besides he definitely the most sarcastic character on the show which I absolutely adore. He is the perfect “dad bod” and I hope when I am in my late twenties/early thirties I will either already have myself a Nick Miller and or still be looking for my own. Nick Miller don’t you ever change ❤

Grey’s Anatomy (part 1)

This first of many long rants about cute men, the first of one’s about Grey’s Anatomy. (PS this will include spoilers please do not read if you do not want spoilers!!!)

This is my first blog ever. Shocking I know. Coming from the generation of kids walking down the street with their noses in their phone you would have thought we were doing something important. Nope, were just taking snapchats with freaking bee faces on them (ps save the bees!!). However, now I have officially decided to dedicate one post a week to doing something with my life and talking about something most 17 year old girls are incredibly passionate about. TV shows and the men that make them worthy of my time. Every girl is in love with the special TV heart throb, for me though it seems that every television show I have watched is staring my future soul mate, and hopefully other girls out there feel the same way. So to kick off this kick ass blog I figured I start off with the owner of all teen hearts right now (and middle aged women too) and start with big guns.

Grey’s Anatomy has been messing with my heart since 2005. From McSteamy to McDreamy (we will get to those cuties later don’t worry) the casting has been spot on with trying to get the classic suburban soccer mom to leave her family and run off with the sexy new doctor they see on their screen (I’m sure they may have succeed too). First we were introduced to Derek, Patrick Dempsey causing our hearts to burst every time he put on that friggin ferry cap. We also have Mark Sloan, the shallow but sensitive plastic’s doctor who’s not only cute in real life (I mean seriously Eric Dane are you even human??) but on the show too. It just increased the hotness overload. Then on season 6 of Grey’s (God that feels like a lifetime ago, I mean come on 13 seasons and I’m still watching, thank Jesus I don’t have a life am I right ladies?!) we were introduced to quite possibly the greatest human being ever. Okay I may be lying and I may not know him personally but for the sake of this blog he just became the greatest human being ever.

Jackson Avery somehow stumbled in out lives when Seattle Grace and Mercy West Hospital merged. It was a tough transition for not only the characters but for everyone at home too. New people on the show meant I had to make new room in my heart and I thought there was only enough for the “originals.” As the show progressed though and slowly they were getting rid of each Mercy West intruder (bye bye Percy & Reed, sorry definitely not sorry), I realized that I didn’t want Avery to go. With each zoom in of his face and the sparkle we could see in his eyes (no but really look at his eyes they are absolutely beautiful) I was becoming more and more attached. His character, though a little rough around the edges in the beginning eventually became one of my favorites. The bromance relationship that began between he and Mark Sloan is the greatest relationship on the show. (Plastic Posse Forever!!!!!)

His relationship with April Kepner however is a very heated topic for me. I personally despise April with every fiber of my being. It’s nothing against her (okay it kind of is) I just really cannot stand the women at all. She’s just so annoying and I have tried so hard to like her but ever since she betrayed Derek in the shooting episode (spoiler alert!!) I just have never been able to forgive her. The ups and downs between the two kept me very intrigued though and a little part of me was always rooting for them to end up together. This season has me questioning their relationship and at this point I’m not sure if they would be better off as just friends. One can only take so much heart ache. We’ll see how Shonda plays this out, I have full faith that she will do the right things for these characters.

So not only is Jackson Avery a great guy, but the actor that plays him, Jesse Williams, is a pretty cool dude too. Williams being half African-Ameican is very involved in the civil rights movement. He speaks his voice often on twitter (link: https://twitter.com/iJesseWilliams?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor), not caring what others have to say but is just trying to get people’s voices heard, especially those who he thinks voice isn’t being listened to. He is incredibly politically involved and especially with everything that went on with this election this year, he really tried to make his followers informed on the important issues. He also had a role in the movie The Butler, portraying the civil rights leader Rev. James Lawson (Its a fantastic film for those of you who haven’t seen it)(this is also me peer pressuring you to see it). One day after watching his moving performance I tweeted at him on a whim, and he actually tweeted me back. I then proceeded to pass out and when I woke up cried because of it. Sorry. Yes I know that’s a little crazy. It happens. (Link to tweet: https://twitter.com/alexcovello/status/435919075735535616).

(yes I know my twitter handle used to be about 5 Seconds of Summer, no judgement)

On top of all this he used to be a school teacher and was married before becoming an actor. The poison that sometimes can come with Hollywood has not interfered with this man’s morals or his relationships. All in all Jackson Avery and Jesse Williams are great people and if you haven’t watched Grey’s Anatomy I highly recommend starting it now. And if you do watch Grey’s like me and get your heart broken every Thursday night along with the rest of America, then you should definitely follow Jesse on twitter and keep up with his appearances. I promise you won’t want to miss this face (or bod!!!).
