    When you grow up your heart dies.

    I haven't seen this in so long that it was basically like watching it for the first time. Much more emotional than I remember...the small tears that slowly fall from Anthony Michael Hall during that one scene are heartbreaking. John Hughes captures youth in the suburbs so well, and almost all of his films were shot in places I grew up and just seem very similar to my highschool/town so I feel like I have a personal connection to them, I don't know!

    "Sometimes when I lie awake at night I wonder whether I've lived at all. Is it the same for everybody or do some people have a greater talent for living than others? Or do some people never live? They just exist. Then I'm seized by fear. I'm seized by fear and see a horrible picture of myself."

    Basically me when I have my daily existential crisis at 3am!
