Girl Crush: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Hi. I'm Lisa, and I'm in love with Buffy. If you're already a Buffy fan, you know why. If you haven't met Buffy yet, please watch her on TeenNick, starting a week from tonight.
When I first heard about Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I thought, "That show sounds waaay too scary for me." I'd seen a few commercials for it, and thought it would be like a horror movie, but on TV. I couldn't have been more wrong. I don't like scary things, and Buffy can be scary at times, so why do I like it so much? I don't know.
I just know that Buffy is one of my favorite people. Here's why:
She kicks ass. It's her destiny, and there's nothing she can do about it. She was born to fight evil.
She's brave, cute, smart, sensitive, and funny... Haha, I really thought I could write up a straightforward little list about how great Buffy is, but it's hard for me to think about her in a rational way. My girl crush is that bad. Buffy is straight-up awesome in pretty much every way that I've ever wanted to be awesome. Did I mention that she kicks ass?
Buffy has awesome friends, and she'd do anything to keep them safe. I'm protective of my friends, too, and if I had to, I think I'd battle evil for them. (But I'm so glad I don't have to.)
I feel like Buffy understands that sometimes life sucks, but on your absolute crappiest days, there's only one thing to do: Keep going, and keep fighting, and keep hoping that things will get better... because sometimes, when you least expect it, they do.
Buffy lives in a world with vampires and demons and all sorts of scary evil, but to me, she seems more like a "real girl" than any other TV character. How crazy is that?
I seriously love this girl, you guys. I feel like watching Buffy has made me a braver, more self-confident person, and if you haven't seen the show before, I'm soooo excited that you're going to be meeting Buffy (and Willow! Xander! Giles! Angel! and even Cordy!) for the first time.
Next Tuesday, at 10pm, there's a new student at Sunnydale High -- and on TeenNick. Be nice to her, OK? Buffy had some problems at her last school, and she needs a fresh start. : )
