"Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80′s movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80′s movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason. But no, John Hughes did not direct my life,” Olivia from “Easy A.”
"When my brother and I were younger, we used to watch The Aristocats, Atlantis, and Brother Bear and a bunch of other Disney movies all the time. Later this year, he’ll be leaving for college and will be 700 miles away from me. I know I’m going to miss him a lot so I’m planning on rewatching all these movies once he’s gone so that it won’t be so bad not seeing him."
Need a new guy friend. It’s about time in a way. Getting over the past now.
You. I remember you and how I sat in the caf and when I stood up to get a cupcake to munch on for dessert, you got up as well. You said, “Excuse me.”
Who are you mystery man?
I bumped into a second time in High Smith in the food court and you bumped into me and said, “Excuse me.”
Who are you?
You’re tall, bulky, and fair-skinned. How do I find you again? I don’t know why but I keep thinking about you. I still remember you and I want to know more about you. How can I find you again?
You’re beautiful and I have a feeling you live in the apartment above from me. You rearranged your furniture and are organized, but really who are you?
