I got myself back into Degrassi big time. (Which is ironic because when I was first getting super into it was last August, when I had my last... hormone-based week+-long emotional breakdown.) But anyways, I missed almost all of Season 9, because I don't get Teen Nick in my room. *Sighs* We have the extra channels in the living room, and they don't even use them! I would all the time. But that's besides the point, because I've just about given up on actually following shows while they air. My sleeping is just too crazy.
I always meant to make a post about how I fell in love with Degrassi last year, but I just never did. Well, let me give you some insight into why: K.C. and Clare. <3 <3 <3 <3
So, I got a bit obsessed with the show after that. Oh, come on... how could I not love them? Clare is very, very much like I was in 9th grade. Shy, awkward, but bright girl with glasses. And K.C. the slightly troubled, but mostly sweet and smart boy. <3 Love. Plus I was very, very tempted to continue wearing my 8th grade uniform into High School, which Emily couldn't believe when I told her. (She's the only other person I know who watches Degrassi.)
As I tend to do, I accidentally fell in love with the couple because I was imagining a Me/Morgan type connection. This is a reoccurring problem, because the characters are not ever exactly like us... so, stuff happens, and I always end up broken-hearted. (I'll get back to this.)
After I watched all of Season 8, I quickly when through all the earlier seasons, which lead me to falling in love with other characters and pairings (not to quite as dangerous levels, though J.T./Liberty was close). I wanted to make sure I was all caught up before Season 9 started. But probably more than my irregular sleeping, or the only TV with Teen Nick being in the Living Room, I subconiously just did not want to see the destruction of my lovely couple that the promos were making quite obvious. :(
I did watch the first two episodes of that season. Which lead me to liking a new couple which some people would probably find slightly disturbing, so I'll not go into it. But even there... I could see K.C. and Clare crumbling due to Jenna. (She just had to be named Jenna...) Really, all I could do was try to calm myself down about them before it totally fell apart and hurt me too much. And that took... well, months. :/
But now, I've gotten totally excited for the new season. Mostly due to this gorgeous, symbolic promo that's been showing during the marathon they've been running. So, I preordered the Season 9 set from Amazon. Though afterwards, I remembered they had episodes online. So, I might have to indulge myself. I already watched one with Clare reading vampire novels, after Emily sent the preview to tempt me. <3 Declan/Clare would have been interesting... I might have been persuaded to like it, though I have other preferences for both of them...
Anyways, I think I'm going to have to do some indulging now. Eeehh. *Runs off*
Oh, wait... I would comment more on how I'm not too fond of LiveJournal's new front page, but it seems like the News post has already gone crazy. :/ I don't understand people. *Runs off again* has already gone crazy. :/ I don't understand people. *Runs off again*
