10 Lessons The Movie 'Clueless' Taught Us
If I could be a character in any movie it would most likely be the movie 'Clueless' and not just any character, but the character, Cher. Not only was Cher pretty, popular and super rich, but she also had a kind heart. Oh and great style. Let's take a look at 10 lessons the movie 'Clueless' has taught us. If you love the movie, you'll love these lessons.
Organize your closet - Any girl watching the scene where Cher is picking out her outfit for school has daydreamed about having the same rotating closet. At the time I thought to myself, 'That would never happen in real life." Fast forward almost two decades later that technology is at our hands. So we can't all have a rotating closet built-in our homes, but there's an app for that. Several apps actually, one of my favorites being StylishGirl. With this app you can store every piece of clothing, shoe and accessory you own and organize it by categories. The best part -- you can plan outfits and set them on a calendar.
Don't date high school boys - Okay, so I don't mean don't date at all while in high school, but Cher had a point. In her own words, "Searching for a boy in high school is as useless as searching for meaning in a Pauly Shore movie". We agree Cher. Point being, don't take high school relationships so seriously.
Do date gay guys - Cher wasn't aware Christian was gay right away, but after figuring it out she realized he still made a great friend. He saw the beauty in things that others didn't and he made the best shopping partner.
Give back - Cher said, "It's a far, far better thing doing stuff for other people". Yes she donated useless things like caviar and skiing equipment, but Cher's heart was always in the right place. Take the time to give back to your community and others. Clean our your closet and give away what you no longer wear to a church or clothing drive.
P.E. Class is pointless - To this day I believe there is no need to have physical education. Well not entirely pointless, but a bit inconvenient. At my old high school you only have five minutes after class to change back into regular clothes and make it to your next class on time. There is no time to shower. So if you want us to be active and actually participate in gym class -- give us the appropriate time to shower and get ready afterwords. No one wants to be sweaty for the rest of the school day.
Overdress - Some of Cher's outfits are ones that to this day no one would ever wear to school. But you can't deny that the girl always looked her best. Truthfully I always believe that it is better to be overdressed than under-dressed.
It's ok to be a virgin who can't drive - Don't fall victim to peer pressure or pressure from society for that matter. Do things because you're comfortable with your decisions, and not because everyone else is doing them.
Don't judge - At first glance Tai's character looked like the total opposite from Cher and Dion. Cher took her under her wing, no matter what everyone else around her thought, and included Tai in their circle. Give people a chance You might be missing out on a wonderful friendship.
Retail therapy works - Who needs to invest in a therapist when you can just go shopping! Your closet will thank you.
Appreciate your friends - They may have had their differences at times, but at the end of the day the 'Clueless' clique was a tight one. We fight, we make up and we love each other. That's what friends are for.
