Hello again blogosphere! Guys, how super fetch is this? Today officially marks the 10th Anniversary of the super popular teen movie 'Mean Girls'! I think we all know that this cult movie's given us some majorly legendary quotes, but what else can we take from it you ask? That's what I'm clearing up today. Stay tuned for 6 super valuable lessons we've learnt from 'Mean Girls' . . .
Always be Fashion Forward
It is obvious that dressing fancily is a thing of importance to the 'The Plastics'. What is the key to magically looking awesome 24/7? Preparation my friends. Make a plan, have a little schedule, read some magazines, that kinda thing. And always just remember the important things, like the fact that you can't wear a tank top two days in a row and can only wear your hair in a ponytail once a week, you know, so you can keep your priorities straight. But also, if you have a fashion disaster, don't be afraid to just go crazy with your wardrobe. Wake up one morning to find that there are a bunch of holes in your tank top? Just throw a Regina George and start a new trend. Oh, and always remember to wear pink on Wednesdays, that's a must.
Be Careful who you Trust
As you can gather from 'The Plastics', there are some pretty dubious characters out there that you should probably steer clear of. Clue number one, if you have to be formally invited to eat lunch with a group of people for a week, they're probably not the best biffle for liffle material. Never cross them or anything, but perhaps maybe don't tell them all of your deepest darkest secrets, because next minute, there'll be accusations that you make out with hotdogs throughout a 'Burn Book' floating around the school. Plus, also remember, never trust people with big hair, you just know it's jam packed with lies.
Life getting you down? Have no fear, 'Mean Girls' is here to help. No matter what hardships you have to endure, just suck it up and keep moving forward. Getting sick of everyday life? Just simply waltz into a random school and promote positivity and rainbows and all things magical, who cares that you don't even go there?! And keep trying to have a positive outlook on life. For instance, next time you get punched in the face, don't annoyingly complain about it and force everyone to listen to your incessant whining, just simply appreciate the awesomeness of it.
Never be Afraid to Make Up you own Words
Sick of your current language? No problem at all, just say whatever syllables you like and make up your very own word. Gretchen did, Cady did, obviously it's just the cool thing to do. Whenever you're super nervous, you'll never have to worry about saying the right thing again, because you'll just be speaking nonsense, and that's totally okay. In fact, it's grool. And no matter what, never give up in your endeavour to expand the vocabulary of many despite any criticism. You will one day make it happen, I promise!
People from Africa can be White
I suppose this lesson could've been some super deep, anti-racist comment, but you know, why not just take it at face value? It seems everyone else on the internet has. Yes, it is true, people from South Africa are not all black, there are white people there too. I know right, aren't your officially minds blown?! Legitimately, before I watched this movie, I didn't actually know that, although I guess to be fair, I was only 5 when it came out. Regardless, it was a valuable lesson, and I owe it all to you 'Mean Girls'.
Look both ways before Crossing the Road
I urge you all to put your safety first! Sure Regina George is awful, but does that mean she deserves to be hit by a bus? No, it (probably) does not. Always remember, when in traffic, follow the road safety rules, or ignore them at your own risk. Do you want to spend prom in a full-on body cast? I didn't think so.
So that's officially the end of my little 'Mean Girls' 10th Anniversary inspired post. I hope you learnt some valuable life lessons and are able to take on the vapid persona of 'The Plastics' whenever you feel like it. Have a super grool day! Til' next time . . .
