I’m Baaaack!

Yep, that’s right!! I’m (hopefully) back!! Out Internet is fixed and I will hopefully be able to post on a regular basis again. The new school semester has started but this semester I am not taking as many credit hours so hopefully I will have more time to update this. In order to help me I’ve created a schedule which will go like this:

Sunday: new Song of the Week

Monday: my thoughts on the upcoming episode

Tuesday: my recap/review of Monday’s episode

Wednesday: new discussion (most likely about Monday’s episode)

Currently Thursday/Friday/Saturday have nothing specifically planned. If I come up with anything I’ll put them on one of those days, but for right now I probably wont, so that I can spend my time doing things for school, etc.

If anyone has any new ideas for this blog, just let me know!

The new schedule will start today, with a new song of the week.

I will be getting rid of all the past songs of the week on the music box and the link above, just so that gives me a fresh start.

Regarding Lack of Posting

I just wanted to say how sorry I am for my lack of posting lately. Our internet at our apartment complex has been not working for a while now, which makes it hard to update. It should be fixed this week sometime. Should being the key term! As soon as it is fixed, though, I will be updating a lot more, and poating everything I’ve missed.

Thanks for your cooperation 🙂

One Tree Hill on Trending Topics

For those of you that are on Twitter, last week Christy-Anne over at OTH Twitter Bugs, started getting people to hashtag One Tree Hill so we can start getting it on Trending Topics every Monday.

This Monday we had no prevail, and I was tweeting like crazy, I even went over my limit for the first time ever, but we are going to continue doing this.

So if your wondering, “What the heck is a trending topic?”…well a trending topic is the most keywords being discussed on Twitter. You can find them at the bottom of the page, when your getting ready to log on, or you can find them to the right hand side of the page, after you log on. Sometimes there is a hashtag in front, which puts the tag into groups, or sometimes there is no hashtag.

So every Monday, make sure you use #onetreehill as much as possible to get it up on the trending topics. We need like 75 tweets an hour, with #onetreehill, to even be considered for a spot on the trending topic list. But, don’t just use it on Mondays, use is during the week, as much as possible, as well. We need to get the point across to other fans on Twitter, so spread the word!

So remember, anytime during the week, when you are talking about One Tree Hill, make sure to use #onetreehill so it gets put into a group, which you can search for, and more people will know and start doing it also. On Monday, however, use it as much as possible, so we can get it on Trending Topics. Use it especially during the episode and after the episode, when you are discussing it. But let’s be considerate of the people that aren’t watching it or can’t watch it, try not to use spoilers.

Just remember to use #onetreehill as much as possible during the week, and especially on Monday’s. If more and more people get the idea then we will make it on Trending Topics in no time, so make sure to spread the word!

Regarding the Lack of Posting

Hello fellow One Tree Hill fans! I just wanted to leave a post regarding my lack of posting this past week.

As some of you may know, if you follow me on Twitter, that school has started for me. I’m taking 19 credit hours to try and catch up. Therefore I have a lot of reading to do for my classes and a lot of studying to do. This past week I’ve been trying to catch up on my reading for my online classes and I’ve been preparing for a test in just about every subject. Last week I had three tests to study for and this week I have two.

Since I was very busy with all of that last week I didn’t get around to putting up a song of the week or anything on the season seven premiere. Since this week will be a little bit less hectic I will try and get around to doing all of that this week. I’ve also downloaded a WordPress application to my Blackberry that hopefully will help me out.

Another reason why I haven’t posted much lately is the fact that I have been feeling pretty down about the fact that I haven’t gotten a lot of traffic in like a month and that really upsets me. You don’t need to leave a comment, but I’d just like to know that someone is at least reading what I write so I know that at least someone else gets enjoyment out of all this.

So please, leave a comment on this post letting me know if you enjoy this blog, are a regular reader, or you at least check in from time to time when you get a chance to do so. Either that or leave me a comment or direct message on Twitter (@gamesthatplayus). I would really appreciate it and it would really make me happy 🙂

For those of you that do take the time to read my posts, THANK YOU!! I started this blog to chat with other One Tree Hill fans and to express my thoughts on why I love this show as much as I do and I would love to hear your thoughts in return!

This is what you have to look forward to this week:

A new song of the week…if you have any suggestions please don’t hesitate to let me know!

My thoughts on what I’m looking forward to this season…even though the season has already started I would still love to know what you are looking forward to or what questions you want answered this season.

A review/recap of season 7’s premiere episode…a little late, but better late than never right? Plus it will be a good way to catch up for those of you who missed it. (But I don’t know why you would miss it! ;))

And…

a new discussion…what you did, and did not like, from the season 7 premiere…

…The Games That Play Us xo

Welcome to The Games That Play Us

It was a sad day when Hilarie Burton and Chad Micheal Murray decided to not return to One Tree Hill, but as it’s been said, “the show must go on.” And go on it will. Who knows how it will be without them? I’m sure it will still be the best show we all know and love, just a little different without them.

To look back on the show, I’ve created this blog. And yes, it is named after the season one finale. As I was trying to come up with a good name, I wanted it to be something unique and meaninful. As I was looking through all of the episode titles, this one stood out to me the most.

Throughout the entire series, they are all playing the game. Not just the basketball game, but the game of life. Every character goes through the trials and tributes of life: love, heartbreak, life, death, friendship, fights, you name it. But most of the time its not about them playing the game, but its about the game that is playing them.

I hope you enjoy this blog, as much as I will enjoy writing it for you, as I take a look back on our favorite characters, and the best (and worst) moments that they bring to us.
