Top 5 Reasons You Should've Been Watching American Horror Story: Coven

ATTENTION: The following includes spoilers so if you haven't been watching and plan to, DO NOT READ.

Tonight is the season finale of American Horror Story's third season, Coven. If you haven't been watching, here are five reasons why you need to build a time machine right this second or, the easier option, watch it online somewhere.

1. The show is amazing. It is full of gruesome, gory action that keeps you at the edge of your seat.  All of the witches have displayed both a sensitive and evil side.  There are episodes where you feel for them but then get shocked by their actions.

2. Angela Bassett. She plays the creole voodoo priestess wonderfully. She certainly deserves an award or at least a nom.

3. Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk has been dangling the question of who the next supreme is in our faces all season long.  Tonight we finally find out...right? I think it will be a crazy twist where it turns out to be all of them as one supreme.

4. Fiona, the current supreme can't be dead that easy. She just can't be. I see her coming back for the finale in a way only Fiona can.

5. Cordelia, Fiona's daughter has been sort of a disappointment this season with her weakness, her marrying a witch slayer, and overall letting down all the witches by not being able to protect them. I have a feeling that she is much more than that. Maybe the finale will prove me right. If all of them aren't the supreme, then the writers can shock me with another type of twist by making her the supreme and she doing something completely bad ass in the last episode.

So there you have it. I'm super excited about tonight's finale. I want all my questions answered and I look forward to the being very entertained *pours wine in glass*. And the countdown starts now...

Impatiently Waiting

"I've been dating since I was fifteen! I'm exhausted! Where is he"? -Charlotte York, Sex and the City

I'm in my late twenties and I've never been love. Is that weird? I've had crushes, I've been in lust, I've been in unhealthy relationships where I knew I was over it but I stayed anyway; but I have never been in love. I want that Noah and Allie kind of love (minus the dementia), that Jack and Rose kind of love (minus the freezing to death), that Jamal and Latika kind of love (minus the massive bad luck), I want someone to tell my dad that nobody puts me in the corner kind of love (although I wouldn't recommend telling my dad what to do). I mean is that too hard to ask for? Yes, I know that these are all movies but I want it. I want the whirlwind affair, the romantic proposal, the exciting and slightly stressful engagement, the huge wedding that will cost more than the budget we had, and finally the happily ever after which includes children and grandchildren.

My parents have been married for 35 years. I want that. I want to grow old with someone. I want the good and the bad that comes with it. And most importantly I want to stop dating these "boys" who fear commitment. I'm waiting prince charming. Where are you?
