The other night I needed a bit of comforting, so I revisited one of my favourite movies: Fast Times at Ridgemont High. If you haven't seen it, you must. To this day, I still cannot believe it was filmed in 1982. It's pretty timeless, in the sense that we can all relate to the issues those teenagers are going through in the movie. And the styles.... oh the styles! Didn't Jeff Spicoli introduce the Vans checkered slip-on shoes to the mainstream world? And how gorgeous and fresh-faced were Linda and Stacey... I would even wear most of their outfits today. And the infamous red bikini scene, of course.
Heartbreaks, working at a mall, and all the high school drama- suddenly made me realize I would not want to go through high school a second time. But come on- who wouldn't want to be friends with Spicoli?! Go. Watch. It.
