Life according to Carrie Bradshaw

I can admit it, I am a Sex and the City addict. I love the show, own every season, and even watch the reruns on TBS. Yep, that's me. I love the whole cast for different reasons and could only imagine a lifestyle like theirs.

Growing up, I always wanted to go to New York. When I finally was given the opportunity to go in college I took it without a second thought. As soon as I got off the plane, I fell in love. The stores, the people, the lights, the museums all had their hands on me and it was so hard to get back on the plane.

I've been back since that very first trip, but I have yet to pick-up my bags and move. Maybe we could chalk it up to being scared of leaving the familiar, but honestly I think it is because of the sky high prices and the suffering job market. Maybe one day I'll just pack up my bags and live the life of a New York City lady, but until then I live vicariously through Carrie and her crew.

One thing I love about Carrie is her dedication to those she loves. I would love to be one of her best friends. Here are some of her rules that all of us should incorporate into our lives:

Rule #1: Why is it that the one time a cute guy talks to you, you have a friend in crisis?

Rule #2: Humiliated best friend always takes precedence over cute guy.

Rule #3: Best friends always think you deserve the best guy even if the best guy barely knows you exist.

Rule #4: Best friends can always be full of surprises.

There you have it, a few rules from the "it" girl Carrie Bradshaw.

If you take out "and the city" from your first sentence it's amusing.

I love the show too. It's great because the overall message is that by loving to the best f your ability and staying true to yourself you'll be able to maintain happiness. And that's what life is about, loving and knowing yourself.
