“So, I started hanging out with Rayanne Graff, just for fun. Just ‘cause it seemed like if I didn’t, I would die, or something. …Things were getting to me. Just how people are — how they always expect you to be a certain way. Even your best friend. …Like, with boys, like they have it so easy. Like you have to pretend you don’t notice them noticing you. …Like cheerleaders. Can’t people just cheer on their own? Like to themselves? …School is a battlefield for your heart. So when Rayanne Graff told me my hair was holding me back, I had to listen. ‘Cause she wasn’t just talking about my hair. She was talking about my life.”~Angela Chase
So I guess, I’ve fallen into the trap as well. But I’ve only watched like, the first episode, which I didn’t even finish, but all that I watched, had a profound effect on me, which I really liked. And also I feel like a lot of adults I know *cough*my mother*cough* are very much like Angela’s mother. Like whenever my mom is going on at me for something, in my head, I’m just like…My So Called Life. Yeahhh.
I really like that dress. I don’t know why, but I like plaid, probably because I associate it with being warm. Also I have dreams about plaid shirts, just wearing plaid shirts and feeling cool. Like in the first episode of My So Called Life(SEE WHAT I”M DOING??) when Angela goes out with Rayanne and Ricky, and she wears a fitted black tank top and pants, and then she just wears this oversize plaid shirt. I love that. I want that. I’m still trying to find a picture. Just watch the episode, why don’t you?
This one is less about the fashion inspiron—but those shoes, that bag—but the line. I had that same thought. And Petra…if you want to make this a movie, like for real, I’m behind you 200%.
“I’m not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I’ve always been a freak. So I’ve been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know. I’m one of those people.”~John Lennon
