Goodbye, HIMYM

It's a really sad day for a lot of people out there. It's the day that we've been dreading for the past few months but I can't believe it's finally here.

No, I'm not talking about my impending graduation that will hit me like a ton of bricks in less than two months but the finale of one of the greatest shows on TV, 'How I Met Your Mother'. Tonight, we will watch Ted and the Gang for one last time. We may or may not get closure because I honestly don't know how the writers are going to tie everything up in an hour but I have faith.

It's time to say goodbye to the show that has given us all so many life lessons, laughs, and good times. It taught us how to properly look good in a suit, to always steal the blue French Horn, and that nothing good happens after 2 am.

Granted I have not been an avid watcher since the start but binge watching the entire series in one week at the beginning of last summer was the best decision of my life. I've gotten so much joy from this show and it really has become a staple. I can't believe I waited so long to watch it.

To commemorate the ending of Mosby and Co, here are my top 5 favorite HIMYM moments (in no particular order).


1. "The Robin": If this isn't on your list, I can't trust you as a person. Barney finally worked up the nerve to put away his playbook and ask Robin to marry him. We've watched this couple flip flop back and forth for almost the entire series and finally, Barney is no longer the Barney we have to come to love and hate. He gives one final play before taking the leap and sealing the deal. This to me is one of the most romantic moments on television and it makes me tear up every time. 


2. Marshall's Father Dies: This is probably the saddest moment in HIMYM history. I can't explain how hard I cried over the two episode arc from when Lily tells Marshall his father didn't make it to the cemetery and "final last words". Ugh, it gives me all the feels and was so out of character for HIMYM that it just worked so well. 


3. Lebenslangerschicksalsschatz: This is probably my favorite montage/voice over/quote of the entire series. It makes so much sense and it basically is the entire message of the show rolled into one short moment. It's when Ted finally realizes that he needs to wait for the love of his life instead of looking for her and it's the moment we see the yellow umbrella for the actual first time, being held by the mother. This is where the final part of the series begins and I love every second of it. 

"If you have to think about it, you have not felt it." 


4. Barney admits his feelings for Robin: I know I already named a Swarkles moment here already but I love them too much. This scene literally kills me every time because even though we're meant to believe that Barney is helping out Robin and just kidding around to get the guy to break up with her but we all now know that this is when Barney admits he is still in love with Robin. It is hands down one of the best speeches on HIMYM ever.


5. We finally meet the Mother: This is what the entire series has been leading up too. This is the moment viewers have been on the edge of their seats for. When I finally saw this episode and we saw the Mother, I keeled over in a mess of tears. It wasn't even sad but it was just so unbelievable that she was finally in front of us, yellow umbrella and all. It still gives me the chills.

Aside from the best moments of 'How I Met Your Mother', the show is known for their running gags and I definitely, like everyone else, am going to miss my favorite ones.

My Monday nights are not going to be the same without this amazing show and I'm sad to see it go.
