I promise this wont take 9 seasons.
I started to watch HIMYM in November 2010. When it comes to significant months in my life, this is a pretty significant one. The reason for that, is a story for another time. The fact is my life really change, and for awhile there I wasn’t okay. But I got through it. A huge part of that was because of this sitcom I had randomly decided to watch called How I Met Your Mother. On days that went I felt like I couldn’t talk to anyone, I opened up my laptop and watched an episode. When I couldn’t fall asleep, and didn’t want to feel alone I’d watch an episode of HIMYM. When I just needed a break from reality, HIMYM was that break. Ted, Marshall, Lily, Barney, and Robin got me through some of the hardest times of my life so far. They made me laugh when I needed to laugh. Cry when I needed to cry. Taught me the lessons I needed to hear. It brought something to my life that I needed to have.
Part of the reason I’m studying theatre today is because of it. HIMYM brought so much to my life joy to my life that I thought “what if I could do that. Would if I could make something that gives a person just want they needed”
I feel silly admitting it but, I owe so much of who I am today to this show. So regardless of what you thought of the final or the show in general, I had to share this. Tonight was the end of something important to me. I will likely never get the opportunity to thank the creators, the cast, the crew, for what they gave me. But I can say it here. So…
Thank you How I Met Your Mother. Thank you so much.
