I've always been well versed in the lines of many 90's coming of age movies, naturally.
It's like Cher said, "It all boiled down to one inevitable conclusion, I was just totally clueless."
(I love spotting the movie titles in the dialogue, don't you?) Self actualizing the notion that you have no idea what is going on is just the best. Really.
Okay, so it's not always fun to realize that what you thought you knew was actually as foolish as that time you wrote a fan letter to Jesse McCartney and waited around the mail box for weeks (...relatively speaking). And no reply. BUT I PUT MY HEART AND BEAUTIFUL SOUL INTO IT. Then time passes and you understand how dysfunctional your view on love was. As the years keep passing, we keep thinking we get it... but we keep rediscovering that oops, no I don't. Is this where the term "keep on keeping on" comes from? I wouldn't know, I learned most of my 70's catch phrases from Michael Kelso. Burn!
Update: Revelation Just In
Making yourself think back on the past will like totally not help your present situation. As if.
Learn from it and move on. Another revelation --okay, this might be the origin of "keep on keeping on." Can we just shorten it to KOKO? Great.
Make memories in your twenties because something tells me they'll be mistakes in your thirties.
