I've been watching too many teen rom-coms lately, and like Jennifer Love Hewitt, I've become completely obsessed with the entire genre. Again. Making space in your life to enjoy the teenage rom-coms of the '90s and early 2000s are one of those things that make humans–– human. Don't fight me about it because I'm right. It's a phase we're continually coming in and out of until we're as old as Rose from Titani throwing that necklace into the ocean in the end
And the most wonderful thing about these films? I would argue that it's the soundtracks. Throughout every one of them, there is consistency, stability–– permanence. An ideal that we all wish for as we get older, despite claiming otherwise. And where do you find that?
You find it in the music–– music introduced to us by these films that were introduced to films by shoddy college radio DJs and the lot. So, for a few minutes, or hours, let's pretend we're 16-to-25 years-old again, and allow the melancholic joy of each and every song take us away
Here are some of my favourites–– hopefully they'll abduct you from the sadness that is 2020, like they've done for me
You're watching that Hollywood nerd girl walk down the stairs. You only saw her as awkward, embarassing and uptight before, but now you see her in an entirely different light. She's had a makeover. Her ponytail's been let down, she took off their glasses, and those embarassingly cute and stylish overalls? Well they're gone. She's in a red dress, and is someone entirely brand new.

Fictional high school days on TV shows and movies, or real life high school days in... high school?
