Hi guys! I live in SOUTH Georgia but I’m definitely not a southern girl. I was going to school down here (majoring in psychology) but I’ve decided to take a semester off. SO, what better way to spend my time off than to get a pen pal! So now you probably want to hear some personal stuff…… In order for me to learn anything, I have to experience it first hand. I have so many stories, so many beautiful things to share, and so many tough times to talk about too. I have experienced and felt SO many things (well, for a 20 year old at least).. I can give someone some “sage” advice who needs it but sometimes I also need it myself. I’m just looking for someone who is cool with reading my deepest thoughts, and sharing theirs too. I enjoy talks about space, love, astrology, How we all got here??? soul searchy things. Anything profound, really. While I’m at it.. here are some of my fav things: TV SHOWS: Breaking Bad, Rick and Morty, Adventure Time, American Horror Story, Stanger Things, Orange is the New Black, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. MOVIES: Scarface, American Beauty, Stand by me, Slumdog Millionaire. HARRY POTTER.. the books too, of course……. some other things I love are animals, nature, exploring, & having FUN.

Preferences: I’d like to have a pen pal with an open mind. Someone who is close to me in age would be nice!

Things I think about at 2:35am apparently -

The original High School Musical is the most consistent in terms of plot, characters, and story structure.

High School Musical 2 is the most fun to watch with the best overall soundtrack (even if its existence adds nothing to the overall trilogy).

High School Musical 3 is the most polished with the best production design and the best choreography of the trilogy thanks to a better budget.

All 3 films have their strengths and weaknesses, and honestly??? What an iconic trilogy???? Also, all 3 films pass the Bechdel test and have a diverse cast. Lord of the Rings who?????

Well, hi! I’m just a sarcastic freshman trying to find new friends from around the world. Now, to tell all you cool strangers out there something about me.
I love food (meat is kind of my life), movies (i’m a sucker for superheroes, action/adventure, i also love documetaries too much), tv shows (i can’t even list them there’s too many), cartoons like rick and morty and the simpsons. I also love listening to music (like 90% of my time i’m listening to music), reading and writing, and doing crazy and fun stuff in general. I’m a massive daydreamer and love deep conversations about pretty much anything. Animals and outdoors are a yes for me, but some alone time is needed from time to time. I’m currently learning German and I would really like to learn is as much as I can. I would really like to have a PenPal so I could share culture, interests, ideas and cool gifts from my country!

Preferences: Preferably 15-17 year old

Hi I’m Hannah!
I speak fluent English, pretty good Spanish, and I’m trying to learn more French and German.
In school, I study environmental science.
Lately, now that school is out, I’ve started gardening. In my free time, I like watching films, traveling to the beach, going to concerts, reading National Geographic, and meeting with friends for coffee.
I used to have a pen pal from Germany, but we grew apart over the years. I’d love to meet someone and start writing again!

Preferences: I’d prefer to meet someone 18 or older… I guess in their 20’s would be best since I’ll be 20 soon.

A million movies to get you in the school spirit

Obviously the school life portrayed in movies is nothing like the reality. Try more disorganisation, mounting stress and constantly messy hair. Nevertheless, we can attempt to forget the reality! I’ve put together this list of high school and college related movies to get you maybe just a little more motivated for school. I’ve put an asterisk (*) next to some of my favourites.

I’ve not seen every single one of this list, so if it doesn’t really have much to do with education, that is why! Please feel free to add you own or message me so I can add more. 

story time.

i went to a weird tech high school where you were pretty much allowed to do almost anything, and you were given an expensive macbook laptop to do ur homework and other shit on. its like normal high school except u could get up and go to the bathroom whenever and not get into trouble (kids asked anyway who am i kidding we feared getting yelled at jus for needing to take a whizz)

and one day, first year, two months in, the school had a big gathering because they were having a problem. yknow, with the expensive macbook laptops.

they were getting cease and desist warnings from dreamworks because somebody was downloading 25 illegal digital copies of the bee movie, every day, for two weeks straight. they were being threatened with lawsuits, so the principal and vice principal basically rounded up all these meme-infused teenagers, and told them, “stop downloading the bee movie. we could get shut down because of you. please stop.”

and it went on for another week because, whoever this kid was, hated this school so much. so much so that they tried to have it shut down in the most fucking ridiculous way possible. by downloading the bee movie, staring jerry seinfield, as many times as possible. illegally.

i remember one early morning, after i got my breakfast burrito, some friends ushered me over to one of the lunch tables and pointed to another friend’s computer. a pirating site was open, and the kid who was responsible was actually a friend of mine. they looked at me, the biggest shit-eating grin on their face, and pointed to, you guessed it, 25 illegal digital copies of jerry seinfelds the bee movie downloading all at once on internet explorer.

the real kicker was that, since the laptops were technically purchased and owned by the school, they werent tied to any of the kids legally. just the school as a whole. so no names or faces were mentioned at all in the illegal downloadings of almost 100+ copies of the bee movie, staring jerry seinfeld.

so the kid was never caught.

Tv show aesthetic: Invader Zim

“You have to observe what these… Earthenoids consider to be… normal. Then, based on your observations, we make our disguises… and our home.“

Since Jason’s truck is still getting fixed up in the shop, they use Trini’s 1998 Land Cruiser as their transportation (She constantly reminds her friends that it’s two years older than them) and that they better respect it. Billy takes her seriously. The others don’t. Zack’s sure that Trini loves the car almost as much as she loves Kim.

  • First of all, it’s Trini’s car. after years of saving money from birthdays and a good paying summer job before she moved to Angel Grove, she bought it with her own money.
  • It’s missing a headlight and has a huge crack down the middle of the windshield. 
  • Trini threatens the boys every time they get in “Zack if you put a dent in the roof I’ll kill you” and “Jason if you make us crash you’re paying for the damages.” 
  • She doesn’t threaten Billy or Kim
  • Kim gets control of the AUX cord and is the only one allowed in the passenger seat (which pisses off Zack and he tries to take it from her. Trini says she’ll throw him out the window) 
  • They start to call her car Hulk because no matter how much shit they put that car through, it’s still in one piece (besides the missing headlight and crack in the windshield) and that it really does feel like it’s indestructible.
  • One day Kim decides to have Billy hotwire Hulk so she can take him to the shop to “Paint over the ugly grey”
  • Trini catches them and just stands there looking all disappointed at her girlfriend with her arms crossed as Billy goes, “KIM MADE ME DO IT, I SWEAR!!” 
  • Trini forgives Billy
  • She doesn’t forgive Kimberly 
  • Later that same week, it’s Trini’s birthday so Kim wakes Billy up at 6 in the morning to steal Hulk. Kim takes it to the shop and replaces the light and windshield. 
  • They drive back to an angry Trini which quickly grows into a happy Trini because, “Holy shit, both of the lights work again!!!” 
  • The next day Trini notices painted pink lips in the corner of her trunk, which she didn’t notice before. Kim just smiles from the passenger seat as she hears Trini, “Kimberly!” 
  • Hulk is the coolest car in the parking lot of Angel Grove. Everyone constantly asks Trini she’ll give them a ride. She tells them to fuck off. (They grumble when Trini lets Kimberly in)  
  • Billy buys Trini a power ranger sticker family (Even though Trini swore that she’d never put a sticker on Hulk, she does it anyways because it’s Billy and she didn’t know that people were making them into car stickers now but she thinks it’s pretty damn cool) 
  • Trini gives her spare key to Kimberly 
  • Zack tries to steal it
  • Sometimes the gang shows up to school late because, “Kimberly, did you take my key?” “What? No, Trini, I haven’t seen your key, I have my own.” Trini and Kim then start bickering about using Kim’s key and Billy just goes, “It’s in your hand, Trini.” 
  • Jason wants to sell his truck for a land cruiser 
  • He doesn’t because, “Jason if you get a wannabe Hulk I’ll cut your balls off.” 
  • It’s almost like Kimberly lives in that car. Her sweatshirts and various articles of clothing are everywhere
  • One day when it’s just Zack and Trini, Zack just holds up a pink bra. (Trini slams on the brakes in the middle of traffic just to punch him all while her face gets red) Zack doesn’t stop laughing. 
  • No matter how many laws they seem to break with Hulk, they never get caught
