sometimes i think that being a teenager in the 1980s would have been fun, especially if my experience resembled a john hughes film. everyone was insanely well-dressed and had a lot of attitude, all of which was accompanied by a punky pop soundtrack–i’ll take it! the 80s seem to have a dramatic sensibility that other generations didn’t possess and i think it could have been fun to be a part of this. and do you know what i would have done to have a friend like duckie? despite the stalking via bicycle, of course.
