What is Doctor Who, you may be asking? I’ll tell you!
It’s an awesome British sci-fi! That’s what it is!
It’s a show that originally aired in the 60s; a director, who watched the series as a kid and loved it, decided to remake it and bring it back, and it aired again in 2005.
Here’s the gist of the show: There is a man who is only known as The Doctor. He’s the last of his alien species, the timelords, and so he spends his life traveling through space and time. Throughout his travels, he is constantly saving Earth and its parallel-universe-Earth from aliens who seek to take over and destroy it. Alongside him, he always has a female companion to travel with - Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, Donna Noble, and Amelia (Amy) Pond. Each woman has her own personality who brings out different qualities in The Doctor and this part of the story supplies an underlying romantic plot. It’s not overdone though. Guys too can love Doctor Who because of everything else it offers!
The whole basis of this show - the idea on which it was created - is that the main character, The Doctor, can regenerate; he can change. In order to save himself, his body transforms. So yes, The Doctor does change (actors too), but it’s just part of the story. It’s not distracting. It’s not like Batman, and how Bruce Wayne changes every time - now that’s distracting. The change is suppose to happen. And the actors they have chosen so far to play The Doctor have been wonderful picks! Christopher Eccleston, was the first doctor. He then regenerates and David Tennant takes over the role of The Doctor. He’s the doctor for the next 3 seasons, and was wonderful! He’s such a handsome man, and girls, you just have to love that hair. Then for season 5, we have Matt Smith - a younger man who suits the role perfectly. After being so used to David Tennant, Matt Smith makes The Doctor, and the show overall, still completely lovable.
It’s really quite a wonderful show. It’s quirky, charming, funny, witty, sad, serious, suspenseful, kinda frightening at sometimes…. simply said - it’s just brilliant.
You are able to stream the first 4 seasons on Netflix and watch them directly on your computer. Season 5 aired fairly recently so it’s not there yet, but if you watch BBC, they show reruns of it so you can find it there.
I highly recommend this show to anyone and everyone. It’s sure to captivate you and I can guarantee that you will love it!

So I was thinking about this the other day whilst at work. I work at Best Buy as a cashier, so when I don’t have any transactions to run, I spend a lot of time thinking.
I saw a guy who works there pass by, and I thought, “Hey, he’s rather good looking!” I couldn’t help but look at him. Although, when he looked at me, it was that awkward hurry-up-and-avert-your-eyes-so-they-don’t-think-you’re-totally-weird moment.
But he’s cute. Average height, dark brown hair, dark brown eyes, lean - like I said, very good looking.
Of course, after I got off I had to tell my best friend about it because that’s just what we do. I told her that she needed to come to work and see him. She then proceeds to tell me that I need to quit trying to set her up with a guy, and get me one because I deserved it. I giggled because I thought she was talking nonsense. Me? Actually find a guy to date? A guy who will actually look at me and not my chest? A real guy who likes me? It’s a funny concept to me.
Because it is. I’ll put it this way:
For the past few years I have been told by so many people that I deserve a good guy. I have been told that any guy would be lucky to have me and blah, blah, blah. Any time anyone would ask my relationship status, and I replied ‘single’ they always seemed shock. So riddle me this? If so many people are shocked that I’m single, why am I? I just find it funny.
Perhaps it’s because I don’t look like the average girl. People see me, and they think “adorable” and “innocent”. I have that face. I also, apparently, have that face that says “Pick on me!!”. I look like a girl who has standards and will say “No” to a one night stand or a fling. I look like a girl who doesn’t go out and party every weekend. I look like a quiet girl, who I guess, is seemingly unapproachable. The list goes on.
So the more I thought about this, the more I was questioning myself and who I am before I realized something. Sure, I have my quirks and little ticks that are my downfalls, but I also have a ton of redeeming qualities - qualities which I need to be proud of and not diminish because of a relationship status.
I’ve come to realize that I’m the best friend. The one person that you can rely on to do anything, no matter what. I’m the best friend who you can tell your secrets to and know they’ll be safe. That’s how people see me as - apparently, especially to guys. I’m just the friend. I use to hate that, but now… but now I’ve learned to be grateful for it.
As the best friend I learn things, and I get close to guys other girls only dream of getting to know. Why is this? I’m trustworthy. Guys have feelings just like girls, and they can get offended and hurt just as easy, even though they’re programmed not to express any of it. I can’t believe that I used to belittle such a quality in myself.
I embrace it now. So I’m not in a relationship and that’s okay. I don’t have to worry about flirting around guys. I do it accidentally 95% of the time. I don’t intend on it, but sometimes my kindness and friendliness is mistaken as flirting. I’m allowed to have fun and explore my options - find out what’s right for me and what I need in my life.
So for now, I’m okay with how things are. They’ll change over time, and when they do they will be welcomed. But I’m going to embrace the good qualities that I’ve been blessed with, and I’m not going to diminish those qualities because others might be too blind to see them. God has given me something great, and I don’t need to waste it. If I’m the one person in someone’s life to be trusted and to be the best friend, then I’ll be there, no questions asked. Being the friend isn’t all bad.
