I love being horribly straightforward. I love sending reckless text messages (because how reckless can a form of digitized communication be?) and telling people I love them and telling people they are absolutely magical humans and I cannot believe they really exist. I love saying, “Kiss me harder,” and “You’re a good person,” and, “You brighten my day.” I live my life as straight-forward as possible.
Because one day, I might get hit by a bus.
Maybe it’s weird. Maybe it’s scary. Maybe it seems downright impossible to just be—to just let people know you want them, need them, feel like, in this very moment, you will die if you do not see them, hold them, touch them in some way whether its your feet on their thighs on the couch or your tongue in their mouth or your heart in their hands.
But there is nothing more beautiful than being desperate.
And there is nothing more risky than pretending not to care.
We are young and we are human and we are beautiful and we are not as in control as we think we are. We never know who needs us back. We never know the magic that can arise between ourselves and other humans.
We never know when the bus is coming.

Sometimes I wanna fast forward to my late twenties and be married but I know that’s preposterous because I have so much to do in the meantime!!! Wifeying does not come til later
Every time I hope this line will change and Mia just straights calls her a bitch instead of a jerk.
Personally i like it how she calls her a jerk instead of a bitch. It teaches young girls who watch this movie that foul language gets you nowhere in life. And that they wouldn’t fall to the bully’s level. Maybe its just me, but i like how she says jerk better.
Or because this is a kid movie
also, “jerk” isn’t gendered. Anyone can be a jerk.
I love that she doesn’t call her a bitch. So many movies fall in that trap. For me though, it’s not about the use of “foul” language, but like the above commenter stated, bitch is a gendered insult. Fuck that noise. Girls can hate each other like anyone else hates anyone else… but it doesn’t have to be presented as cliched, “entertaining” girl hate. That takes away the validity of their feelings, as well as condones a culture where internalized misogyny runs rampant.
