My dear friend @starlitsummersky tagged me, and I’m so excited to do this because 1. I love movies, 2. I love to talk about them, especially my favorites and 3. I looooove movie gifs!

1. Flipped (2010)
2. Pride and Prejudice (2005)
3. Ever After (1998)
4. Bridget Jones’ Diary (2001)
Sorry, but I really had to post a gif of Mark Darcy’s sweater. Plus:
As a companion to my list of college-set movies written by women, I now bring a list of high school oriented movies written by women, for those who have just begun, returned to, or are nostalgic for high school.
I have one wish, just one. I want to be kissed by a pretty girl. Not just any pretty girl, she’s pretty inside and out. She makes my heart flutter and my knees weak. She makes me blush and it hard for me to get a full sentence out. I want her to kiss me without pity, without disgust, but with sincerity, with so much emotion I feel it in my heart and soul. I feel it so hard that it makes me feel alive like I mean something to the universe.

We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, you can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise, you would threaten the man. Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors not for jobs or accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.
Favorite actress series | Drew Barrymore: [on her favorite movies to make]: “I try to make movies that I would want to go see rather than ones I would just want to do as an actor. I want people to have movies full of romance and hope and empowerment, something they can escape into and feel good about. I love happy endings.” - Drew Barrymore
Remember how he’s supposed to be a 15 year old sophomore here? And how he’s so mature - calm and collected and grown-up and steady and wise already, and you realize he’s already survived a hate crime at the age of 15; already seen the same thing happen to a good friend, so Blaine had to grow up, he talks more like a professional counselor than a teenage boy in this episode because he doesn’t feel like one, most teenage boys haven’t been through anything close to what he’s been through. Not only has he sought out a safe, nurturing space for himself, he chooses to leave it, confront Karofsky and put himself right back in the warzone because this wounded boy needs him there and he’s just so truly, utterly good and brave and I just have a lot of feelings about Blaine Anderson.
