greek

so ABC's GREEK is one of my favourite shows. detailing college life and the ups and downs that come with it, GREEK succeeds as a TV show because it deals with what many people go through without being predictable or corny. while it may not have the mainstream mass appeal of, say, gossip girl, it does have an extremely likeable and charismatic cast and, a loyal and dedicated fan base.

Photobucket
its a pretty hilarious show with a lot of heart. and once i started on it a couple years ago, there was no turning back. GREEK recently came to its undeserved end, although it was smart to end on a high instead of playing college out for anything more than its customary 4 years.

Photobucket

chief among the reasons for fans watching the show is the long-term relationship between 2 greek society presidents, Cappie (frat) and Casey (sorority). yes they have quite unisex names. their relationship captivated viewers in no small part due to the overwhelming fangirl-dom behind scott michael foster (cappie), but also because it was such a realistic depiction of 2 people on TV, and thats not easy to come by.
no over-the-top gestures, no cheesy moments, and a very real issue of what happens when 2 people who love each other dont necessarily want the same things in life, at least after college. of course, a happy ending was to be had, but even i didnt expect the way it all played out.

Photobucket
the final scene, with forever young playing in the background (ok MILDLY corny), but those were the last words they uttered on television. a very fitting ending to a show thats chronicled what happens between people being 18 and 22. i suppose i relate because i'm done with my college education now, and i'm not so sure that moving ahead is exactly what i want to do. its a pretty sweet 2 and a half minutes of TV.


and if you'd like to get started,
you can catch greek HERE, all 4 seasons.

starring: spencer grammer (YES kelsey's daughter), scott michael foster, jacob zachar, jake mcdorman, amber stevens, clark duke, dilshad vadsaria and paul james.

growing up... kinda

Photobucket
but thanks guys for playing a starring role anyways.

Photobucket
the NUS Guild House
The location for our unofficial segue into the "you're no longer a student, sucker" Club. thankfully, the beer kept flowing, otherwise the truth might've been too much for the majority of us. it was a good night of food, fun, laughter and no small amount of reminiscing.
Personally, i just liked seeing everyone dressed up. Especially since our future courtroom duties mean penguin suits all round, and where's the fun in a monochrome life?
Photobucket
friends...from WAY BACK. i really love her orange pants! So sander, so chic, so now.
Photobucket
sorta coordinated, completely incidental of course. in the background? The Rembrandts' "I'll Be There For You", which got everyone on their feet and singing along.
Photobucket
nervously and somewhat sheepishly doing The Walk onstage. Moderately fun, though.
Photobucket
Usual Antics, beer-induced of course. (idiots). pretty much sums up the dynamic. i remember calling this "the 3 twins". go figure...never good with numbers.
Photobucket
and then there were 6.

the people whose faces have grown familiar in my mind, whose temperaments i can instinctively discern, whose numbers are on my iphone "favorites" list, whose quotes i remember, whose houses i lounge in, whose families i've met, whose preferences i have down pat, whose misadventures i hear about, whose voices i instantly recognize, whose joy and tears i've shared,
whose Kindness Generosity Support Selflessness Hilarity Wit Intellect Affection Openmindedness Warmth Inebriation Annoyance Effusiveness Passion & Love
i have been nothing short of fortunate to have basked in, experienced and constantly endeavour to return.

arguably something we've lived by--
