*So… Warning. This will be a rant. I’m not totally sure how long it will be but if you are one of the few who decides to read this, please don’t hesitate to comment. Thank you in advance.*
All my life, or for at least as long as I can remember, I have had two and then, “recently”, three favorite movies. They are (in this order) Beauty & The Beast, Clueless, and Pride & Prejudice. They may seem pretty random and unrelated but they do have some relation to each other, at least for me they do. They all entail the focus on one girl and her every day life, turned by some misshapen code for how love stories are supposed to go. They all entail a life that I’ve wanted in some way or another, a life I wish I had.
I am now adding another movie to this list, bringing my total (for those who don’t remember or can’t keep count) to four.
This movie is Easy A.
Laugh, if you will or want or can’t help yourself but the reason for me loving this movie so much is different from the others. A lot different.
Yes, this movie has a happy ending as all of “these kinds of movies” should but my focus is not on the happy ending. It’s everything before that.
My life, in high school or anywhere for that matter once I reached/passed puberty, was so much like Olive’s (the main character in the movie, in case you didn’t know). I had a friend, if that, at any given time, who wasn’t a true friend. I had an invisibility cloak (excuse the Harry Potter reference) that I couldn’t remove. And I had my journals to keep me company throughout everything.
I don’t know where or when or why or, even, how the whole thing came about but one day I woke up, got ready for school, and everything was different. For some reason, my cloak was gone and everything changed. I was noticed, people talked to me and words spread like wildfire from then on out. Suddenly, I was someone’s girlfriend. Suddenly, I mattered. And suddenly, I became the school’s slut, whore, skank, whichever word you may have used against someone else. And then I also became the “boyfriend thief”. All without having done a single thing that could amount to the definition of those names. All because I may have spoken to someone in gym class or at lunch. Who knows why or for whomever’s pleasure this came about but it doesn’t really matter because it did.
And so I went from being invisible, to being seen, exposed to everyone and hated for something I was not. But instead of disputing it, striking the fire down, I did nothing. I walked around like I didn’t give a **** because it was the only way to deal. The worst thing is, it followed me. It didn’t end at high school because then I went to college…With the same people.
Anyway, to make a really long story short, Easy A is now on my list of favorites because it too is something that I wish for, only this wish was attainable. I really am glad that there was a movie like this to come out. I’d like to think there were others in a situation similar to mine who saw it and decided things needed to change.
Anyway, I’m done now, I think…Well, I will be because I don’t want to bore you any longer with my rant. So for all intents and purposes…
Oh wow thanks so much for the follow, that's like so lovely of you and all :) <3
Really, I should be thanking you for making your blog. I love it. I love Cassie. I love that you’re being her and that you went all out. Really, though, thank you so much for being so awesome and lovely.
Not only have I yet to complete a potion aside from the practise one…
But my last attempt at potion making ended up with the potion everywhere and a melted cauldron.
Completely unrelated to the post of above, my comment shall be…Does anyone else think that the kid in the gif looks like Tony Stonem from Skins? Or maybe it is him but I’ve never seen the media from whence this gif is from… Okay, the end.
This is a Harry Potter RPG, so to speak… It may not look all fancy but I find it quite entertaining and it definitely kept me sane while I was waiting for my Pottermore email. Anyway, it’s pretty cool… You get to level up, learn new spells, earn house points and shtuff like that… Um, the end.
