jodie is having none of that douchetastic mansplaining masquerading as a pep talk. none of it.
oh wait no, i have to stop crying long enough to wanna punch cooper for deciding to dance in his own fucking ballet in the student workshop, straight-up (very hetero) depriving a student who needs a job from an audition to get one?!!!??!!!!!
but you know right after that is the “i wish that was me” scene. ugh maureen, you’re so crazy and i love you so much.
once the scene with emily and her mom happens, it’s just sob central from here until the end, guys.
"northern lad," my teen anthem
i don’t know why i didn’t realize i was totally fucking gay, y’all. because heteronormativity.
fuck me, if you haven’t listened to the writing’s on the wall in its entirety recently, you have a problem. i cannot.
"if you leave" and "she can’t love you," oh my fucking beyoncé, that voiiiice. plus "temptation," totes on my songs that made me poly playlist, and which totally just became the first song on my girl playlist because it’s from a good era of my girlhood and literally has a nursery rhyme in it. also it has relationship commandments and they’re totally solid.
In high school I was only friends with the prudes, the sluts and the queers. If you weren’t being labelled or harassed for your sexuality I didn’t know how we could be friends.
this is kinda why i have a “sluts and fuckups forever” tag.
ohhh my godddd the part about having the checker repack everything because you just remembered your cloth bags.
