i will literally never forget the watching the season four premiere of the office like we spent a whole summer agonizing over whether or not jim and pam were FINALLY dating and then in the beginning my brother actually threw a pillow at the tv when it looked like they weren’t together and then they kISSED and i swear to god my whole family started screaming and hugging like we woke up my three year old sister lmao and my friend called me during the commercial break so we could yell about it and then we stayed on the line so we could scream every time they did anything like when they held hands we hit decibels that weren’t audible to humans and to this day i have never seen my brother literally flail about something the way he did on that fateful night in 2007
I think the reason why I love Jim and Pam so much is because often television shows often portray relationships as kind of boring. The ‘getting together’ is the most interesting part, which is why so many movies and shows are about the time leading up to 'The Big Kiss’. But with Jim and Pam you see every aspect of their relationship, and they never become boring. It’s not just two people who kiss all the time and say I love you, it’s two best friends who are having the time of their lives. They have their share of confrontations, but they never fall into the TV couple stereotype. You know the couples who are constantly fighting couples or can’t keep their hands off each other. They always remain goofy best pals Jim and Pam, and that’s why years later I will look back on them as the best TV example of true love.
When I was in my teens, I thought, “Would I like to try and work hard at being an actor, or do I want to work hard at doing something musical?” Acting won out, but I do really enjoy those moments where I get to just belt something out.
