There is something so amazing about being a hopeless romantic. It is a whole genre of sappiness. It is endearing and awkward. I love this whole romanticism of being a hopeless romantic. For generations writers, poets, directors and photographers have tried to convey the teen girl hopelessness. The colours textures, photo's and movies give teen girls a reason to be a teen. The photos of teen heart throbs taped onto walls. Heart shaped candy. Pink. Yellow haze and 60's songs. Writing, 'love you' on your eyes and blinking at your hot teacher. Hoarding. Watching Grease a bazillion times while eating junk. Fluffy toys. And last of all sleepovers with girl gangs! Girl gangs in movies usually comprise a fierce set of characters with badass attitudes spitting out memorable one-liners. Not only do they have eternally cool nicknames, but they also possess some of the best style seen on the silver screen. At school they are un-mixable un-changeable types of girls. And whilst a movie plays on these characteristics and makes them fantasised and magical these ideals are un-achievable. But movies and magazines keep covering us in pink frilly heart shaped blindfolds.
