Have you noticed that the weather’s becoming a little chilly? I can’t complain though because that only means I can finally start layering and wearing pullovers, aside from the obvious fact that Christmas is just two months away.
I mean, who doesn’t love pullovers? They’re very comfortable and easy to wear, you don’t even have to put anything over it. They always make me feel like I can lie around all day, drink hot chocolate, and maybe snuggle with my boyfriend while watching TV—except that well, my boyfriend’s no longer in the country. Him coming home to me is still so vivid, I can’t believe a year has passed since then. Oh the woes of being in a long-distance relationship, but I do not regret anything. True love should never be fazed by distance.
Another thing I love about this look is that it can also be a nice school outfit. It reminds me so much of the 80s and 90s teen flicks I used to watch when I was a kid. I think you’d agree with me that today’s teen flicks suck. Sometimes I’d wonder if the human race is slowly degenerating. Case in point, Fifty Shades of Grey is a bestseller and very popular—are you kidding me? No offense to the fans of the book but I tried reading that crap and I couldn’t even get past the first chapter. That’s how bad it is.
I believe this puzzling phenomenon has something to do with the influence of social media. Decades ago, writers, filmmakers, musicians, artists, and consumers alike used to rely on reviews to propel their projects. It’s not even the case today anymore. Even though reviews are still available, a project’s success depends on its virality and popularity on say Facebook and Twitter, which is really tragic to be honest. Sometimes I come across really good films, and it makes me sad when I research them and find that they did not even surpass their budget, while movies like Twilight earn millions of dollars in the box office despite the awful storyline. I hope we can fix this before it’s too late.
