By the way, this is a website where you can see what famous writer’s writing your writing is most like.
How I Met Your Mother
One of my all time favorite moments in How I Met Your Mother is when Robin tells Ted she doesn’t love him. He’s been in love with her for years, and would do anything for her, so it should be this horrible, sad moment. And it is. But, at the same time it isn’t, because older Ted is narrating and he shares with his kids, and all of us, a beautiful lesson. The “mother” carries a yellow umbrella, and while Ted is talking about how when one door closes, a million others open, there is a shot of a entire street of people with yellow umbrellas.
This scene has helped me through rejection, and always reminds me that when your Robin doesn’t work out, a million girls with yellow umbrellas show up. Self-identifying with Ted is painful at times, because a lot of things don’t work out for him, and sometimes, despite being such a nice guy, people are horrible to him. But, in this moment, I am proud to be “a Ted” because he has the dignity to move on, when something is truly done, and the wisdom to to understand that rejection can lead to new opportunities.
This scene is beautiful, and metaphorical, and not to mention the music is stunning. It has taught me so much, and I just wanted to let people know that when one door closes, a ton of others really do open. (And to praise the amazing HIMYM ;))
In my mind there are only 5 seasons of Gossip Girl, and no one is gonna convince me otherwise.
I took a buzz feed quiz on which 10 Things I Hate About You character I am and I’m Kat, so… I can die happy now.
