Wordy Wednesday: Blair Waldorf

I, like every other basic millennial girl, watched Gossip Girl in high school. And while I didn’t like Blair Waldorf as a person, she had many undeniable and admirable qualities that any woman trying to make something of their lives should aspire to. She was determined, she was confident, and she was a force to be reckoned with. And as much of a spoiled rotten elitist as she was with an unearned sense of accomplishment and entitlement, I appreciated that unlike her blonde counterpart, she was honest about who she was while Serena played the clueless victim. So without further ado, here are some of Blair’s most relatable and motivational quotes:

“I’m not a stop along the way. I’m a destination. And if you refuse to come, I’m gonna need to find a replacement… girls, the waiting list?”

“Only a masochist could ever love such a narcissist.”

“Can you make sure they don’t seat me behind Caroline Kennedy? She may be American royalty, but she’s a giraffe.”

“I don’t need friends, I need more champagne.”

“I’m the best of the best. I’m Blair Waldorf.”

“Here’s my advice. Have a little faith, and if that doesn’t work, have a lot of mimosas.”

“I have an idea for you: quit. Your boss is a bitch. Let’s go to lunch.”

“Destiny is for losers. It’s just a stupid excuse to wait for things to happen instead of making them happen.”

“Don’t go all Notebook on me. Not now. I need you.”

“We’re not servants of our emotions. We can control them, suppress them, stomp them out like bugs.”

“You are living proof that a person can’t buy class.”

“Do you have any idea the psychological torture that I have endured being nice to you?”

“Some people are simply better than others.”

“The most important parties to attend are the one you aren’t invited to.”

“People don’t write sonnets about being compatible, or novels about shared life goals and stimulating conversation. The great loves are the crazy ones.”

“They say Rome wasn’t built in a day. And yet what a difference a day makes.”

“You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off.”

  • New blog post about how getting into what’s essentially a grown up sorority after not being able to participate in Greek Life in college reminded me that it’s never too late to create the life you want; I know it sounds stupid on the surface but check it out anyway 🤪 — link in bio!
  • “When I told your father I was pregnant he told me to get an abortion. After you were born he told me he had never been more wrong about anything in his life.” I’m pro-life, and I always have been. My mom was starting law school at Brown when she got pregnant with me a year younger than I am now. My biological father...wasn’t exactly boyfriend of the year to put things lightly, and as an Ivy League grad the world was literally my mom’s oyster. She was extremely religious and went to a very conservative church where a child out of wedlock would turn her into an outcast. Because like every last professed pro-life Christian, she wasn’t perfect. But this wouldn’t be a sin that she could hide or bury. She had every reason to make that appointment, but she chose not to.

Fast forward 24 years, and a really good friend of mine got pregnant at the same age my mom did, and I assumed she would keep it. She was in a stable relationship and even told me she wanted to start a family soon. And according to almost every conversation we’d ever had on the subject, she was pro life too. But she was panicking, and almost overnight her entire perspective changed. Ironically enough, just days before I attended my first March for Life, a good friend of mine got an abortion.

And I won’t lie; I was disappointed. Because like most abortions, it wasn’t the result of some freak accident of properly used but failed birth control. She was being careless. And while I did my best to make the case for keeping it without pressuring her, I completely understood her decision and didn’t judge her for a minute. Because what my friend needed more than opinions or condemnation was my support.

I am pro life, and I always have been. My views didn’t change, but my attitude did. I realized that week, after taking frantic phone call after frantic phone call, that life happens in a lot of different directions. Life happening for my mom meant a child at 24 and dropping out of law school. Life happening for my friend meant an abortion. And part of being pro life — for me at least — is being there for people in your life even when it challenges you.

  • In 2019 instead of making a list of habits and goals I want to implement and accomplish, I’m thinking more broadly about the kind of person I want to be so that no matter what this year has in store for me I’m in a place where I can make the most of it. New blog post — link in bio!
