**a little background on this post. I drafted a version of it about a month ago. I refrained from posting it as it felt “dumb”. I almost posted it again when it happened to be James Van Der Beek’s birthday, but didn’t in fear of it being “stupid”. Earlier this week I saw this magazine was coming out, ok, maybe not such a dumb Guilty Pleasure after all. This week I tried to track down the magazine at 4 different stores with no luck-sold out at each. I guess it’s not so dumb. *smile*
Look who just had a reunion, Dawson’s Creek! The cast got together for this Entertainment Weekly magazine article. The show was a total guilty pleasure of mine- maybe still is. I did not watch it when it first came out, in fact, I didn’t really begin watching it until college. It only had a season or two left when it found me. Yes, IT found me! Thank you, TBS, for showing re-runs. I was so deeply in love with this show, it’s characters and the music. Oh my gosh, the music!! I would go online and follow each episode and see what new music I could find. I bought a few of the seasons on DVD so that I could officially get caught up. I kid you not, these DVD’s got me through my final semesters of interior design at NDSU. I am not a fan of pulling all nighters, and with all of the time I put into my projects, it never failed, I still had to pull a couple of all nighters to get all of the details just right. Dawson, Pacey, Joey and Jennifer were there with me.
I have followed many of them on Instagram. Katie Holmes has an incredible love for art, James Van Der Beek has a totally killer family life. His wife is beautiful and his kids are A-dorable! Busy Philips is inspiring and funny. Once in awhile you will see her post photos with Michelle Williams.
Finding this Guilty Pleasure introduced me to killer music I had not heard of, brought me dreams of moving to Wilmington, NC where the show was filmed (I have yet to even travel there, but my heart still pulls me there) and taught me about some talented actors and actresses (Michelle Williams- amazing!)
Look up Dawson’s Creek if you need a great show to binge watch. For now, I will leave you with these lyrics from Paula Cole, “I don’t want to wait for my life to be over”, *smile*, an amazing song of the 90’s!
