fun tip: instead of asking random bloggers what something is, google it because this is 2013 and you’re already on the internet
can we please talk about this
# 1998 is a hard year for jackie # even working two jobs money is tight # (especially with rose’s gymnastic lessons # but rose loves them and jackie will sell her own kidneys to ensure she can keep attending) # and christmas is just around the corner # she looks over her books and feels ill: # she simply can’t afford to get rose any proper gift this year # and it breaks her heart # because rose is so excited # she loves christmas # keeps saying how she hopes it’ll snow this year # proper like # and christmas eve jackie is up late # worrying and hating how disappointed rose is gonna be come morning # when she wakes up to see the floor is almost empty beneath the tree # and that’s when there’s a knock at the door # she opens it # (with a baseball bat at the ready - it’s late on the estate after all) # and there’s no one there # just a red child-sized bike # with a note attached # 'she's gonna be fantastic' it reads in messy loopy handwriting # 'merry christmas' # and normally she’d be worried about weirdos and stalkers but tonight # tonight it’s christmas eve and jackie tyler knows when not to look a gift horse in the mouth # so she hauls it inside quiet as she can # and the next morning when she’s awoken by the sound of rose crashing her new bike # into the hallway mirror # shrieking in delight the entire time # she takes a moment to say a silent thank you (via)
and now I’m crying
one of the 10 things i loved about 10 things i hate about you WAS THE SOUNDTRACK IT WAS PERFECT
i. worth wondering - bronze radio return | ii. silver streets - boy | iii. i don’t know - lisa hannigan | iv. hard to say - jaymay | v. she’s got you high - mumm-ra | vi. sweet darlin’ - she & him | vii. sea of love - phil phillips | viii. explore - prince of spain | ix. all about us - he is we (feat. owl city)
I love seeing people walking by with little smiles on their face because something small happened that made them happy. Maybe they got a cute text, maybe they got laid, maybe they killed a man. You will never know.
10 things i hate about you was such a nice movie and it’s also made me wonder just how many of shakespeare’s plays have been turned into movies
