Last night was the series finale of Gossip Girl, the comedy/drama/romantic television show that has ruled the air and the Upper East Side of New York City for six years.

I’ve been a devout fan since the books were written in 2002, and I have to say that a part of my heart is broken now that the end is here. However, in all fairness, it’s best that they went out on top.

For those of you who haven’t watched, or who are planning to start the series now, I won’t give away what happened at the ending, but all I can say is that I couldn’t’ have asked for a more perfect finale.

Hours after the shows airing and I’m still reminiscing on all of the life lessons Gossip Girl has taught me. I guess it is possible for a television show to have a major impact on someone’s life, huh?

It’s Okay To Be A Bitch

You know what, Blair Waldorf  has always had the right idea. Some may say she’s a bitch, which in all honesty, she is, but I think of her as a leader. Blair doesn’t care about what she has to do or what she has to say to get what she deserves. Is that such a bad quality?

During the third season she said “I would never put my fate in someone else’s hands and that’s why I always win… and you lose.” Blair is a go-getter, and she doesn’t smile sweetly and wait for everyone else to get ahead. She’s going to get what she wants and if she has to step over a few weaker links on the way, that’s perfectly fine.

She’s the most loyal friend and daughter, but when it comes to everyone else… Keep Calm And Wear Your Bitch Face.

How To Dress

Gossip Girl has taught me one of the most important lessons of all; one should never walk out of the house looking like a mess. Always dress your best. The Gossip Girl cast would never be caught dead wearing yoga pants or even worse… a sweatshirt.

They’re in heels, dresses, tights and elaborate jewelry with a full face of makeup on at all times. They inspire us to get off of our asses and make an effort in the morning, because who doesn’t love looking between than everyone in the room?

Always Wear Your Invisible Crown

Not one cast member of Gossip Girl would be caught dead being anything less than confident. They all walk with an air of importance, and never doubt that they’re anything less than the best. In my own personal experiences, being the most confident in the room gets you more in the end.

Those who are timid and worrisome miss out, because their insecurities are holding them back. Who said you aren’t the best? As long as you act like you are, people will follow suit.

All Men Should Speak In A Deep Whisper

And finally, the most integral life lesson of all: all men should speak in a deep husky whisper, because more men in this world need to be just as sexy as Nate and Chuck.
