So I randomly got into watching some One Tree Hill episodes a few nights ago, and I was reminded of just how much I love Haley James Scott. She was always my favorite character. I always felt like aside from the fact that she ended up married by 16 and pregnant by 18, I thought she was the most “real” or most accurate version of a typical teenager/girl next door. I saw things in her, that I saw in myself. And as a writer and a tv lover, I realize that’s gold when you are trying to hook an audience. When people relate to your characters, you truly have something special.
Haley James Scott, known for being the goody two shoes of the group. The kind, and sweet and innocent girl that always had a thing for people who needed fixing. She was the girl who spent her free time working shifts at the café to earn spending money, tutoring kids, and studying and being brilliant. But by season 2 she was a full fledged singer, and we saw new side of Haley. #Rockstarr
However, let’s be honest underneath that sweet nice girl act, was a sassy girl just dying to get out. Mess with her, or someone she cares about and you will feel her wrath. And in those moments above all else, I LOVED HER!
Because Haley James Scott was more than just Nathan Scott’s wife, or Tree Hill High’s teacher, more than Haley James singer and tour travel goer. Haley James Scott was a young woman who spoke her mind when she felt something was wrong. A girl who never faulted on her beliefs, and always without a doubt followed her heart. Because Haley James Scott was a BADASS! And here’s why…

And also can we just take a moment and fangirl a.k.a freak the heck out over these One Tree Hill conventions that have been going on all over lately. The cast’s instagram game is EVERYTHING. They need to leave Paris for a while and come visit NEW YORK. Joy I’m still waiting to do brunch, oh and we can invite Sophia Bush along too! 😉 #FangirlLife
