Years ago, I was on a train in Spain. It was four in the morning, and I was traveling by myself from Salamanca to Madrid.
A young man approached me and began talking rapidly. I don’t speak Spanish. He didn’t speak English.
I couldn’t figure out what he wanted. We went back and forth for awhile in a stumbling, half-sign-language conversation. Finally, right when he was about to give up, he got an idea. He pointed at me and said one word.
Call it the universal language of Boy Meets World.
For more than two-thirds of my life, I’ve had the good fortune to experience the incredible support of Boy Meets World fans. Complete strangers hug me on the street. I’ve been mobbed by school children on the subway. I’ve had tow-truck drivers recognize me and refuse to let me pay. I’ve had people buy me drinks in Louisville, in Hyderabad, in Accra…
And that’s just the people I’ve met in person. I can’t express enough gratitude to the BMW fans, who not only watched our show when it first aired, but who continue to watch it, spread the word, and even introduce it to their children. It’s an overwhelming feeling to have that kind of support for something we did over a decade ago. When I opened a Twitter account, I thought maybe I’d get a few hundred followers. It wasn’t long before thousands of people were checking in and sending me messages.
Boy Meets World was a defining aspect of my life, and I cherish those seven years. It was never just a job — on a personal level, many of my best memories and friendships were formed because of it.
So I am extremely happy for Ben and Danielle to be able to continue the story. At this point, I have no official involvement in Girl Meets World. There might be a chance to see some of the BMW cast in a guest spot, and I think it would be nice to find out where our characters have been all these years. But Girl Meets World will be, and I think it should be, it’s own show. It will be about Cory and Topanga, their daughter, and a new set of characters.
It’s the next generation.
And I, for one, can’t wait to see it evolve.

10 Things Your Dog Would Tell You..
- My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you will be painful: remember that before you get me.
- Give me time to understand what you want of me.
- Place your trust in me- it is crucial to my well being.
- Do not be angry at me for long, and do not lock me up as punishment.
- You have your work, your entertainment,and your friends. I only have you.
- Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don’t understands your words, I understand your voice when it is speaking to me.
- Be aware that how ever you treat me, I will never forget.
- Remember before you hit me that I have teeth that could easily hurt you, but I choose not to bite you because I love you.
- Before you scold me for being uncooperative,obstinate,or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I might not be getting the right food, or I have been out too long, or my heart is getting to old and weak.
- Take care of me when I get old; you too will grow old. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say: “I cannot bear to watch” or “Let it happen in my absence.” Everything is easier for me if you are there, even my death. ♥…!!
It hurts waking up feeling like we’re not together. I wake up wanting to say something but afraid what the response is. I’m in the middle of going with how my own feelings are right now and picturing what I could have done before all this damage that has been done up to know.
How do you know when to finally put you foot down or even throw in the towel? You’re not throwing in the towel because you quit, you throw in the towel cuz you can’t see or handle the pain anymore that you’ve seen developed. While you see yourself almost beating yourself up, blaming yourself for not only your mistake but for others, you come to a conclusion where you honestly don’t know what to do. Do you stick by your word and put people’s feelings first before yours or you honestly feel like you have no choice to go how you’re feeling now after everything.
After all that has happened; when the beating has been happening, the pain has been building, the stress has done its damage. Where or what do you even do? Try to get back up? Try to be more motivated to fight more ? What if you honestly tried those but yet you find yourself later on in the same situation.
I DON’T WANT to accept what has happened and where have things go. I NEVER chose to accept what has developed to what has happened. I had no other option but to ACCEPT how everything has turned into.
Yeah, of course I’m going to look okay or happy or fine. But let’s be honest with everything; I will not feel the same nor feel any better about MYSELF and how i felt like I COULDN’T do anything anymore for awhile. I swear it’s going to be hard. Ill take the pain cuz honestly I feel like I deserve it. No scratch that, I DO DESERVE this.
In the end, the pain, the beating, and the stress had to stop for each other. Had to accept something that you had no control over. I’m letting time do its part. That’s the best I can honestly do.
