Mean Girls Day!

On October 3rd, he asked me what day it was.

And if I was there, I would have said Mean Girls Day, uncultured swine!

 

And trust me, I wore pink today.

 

It’s Mean Girls Day! Why? October the 3rd was the day Aaron asked Cady what the date was. And you know what she said? She said October 3rd.

Now, if you haven’t watched Mean Girls, firstly I want to correct you before you say “it’s just a movie, don’t be so dramatic”. It’s not just a movie. It’s a lifestyle. A lifestyle that chose me. Specifically, one evening when I was about ten, with my parents, and I wanted to choke on soil when the coach said to not have sex because then you will get pregnant and die. And I never got ‘the talk’ so I guess, better Coach Carr than no one.

 

But besides my strange childhood that made me the way I am now (i’m okay), I wanted to share my top favourite iconic Mean Girls quotes:

 

“On Wednesdays we wear pink.”

 

“If you’re from Africa, why are you white?”

 

I wish I could bake a cake filled with rainbows and smiles and everyone would eat and be happy.”

“She doesn’t even go here.”

 

“I can’t help it if I have a heavy flow and wide set vagina.”

 

“That is so fetch.”

 

“I gave him everything. I was half a virgin when I met him.”

 

“I’m kinda psychic. I have a fifth sense. It’s like I have ESPN or something.”

 

“Ex-boyfriends are just off limits to friends. I mean, that’s just like the rules of feminism.”


“You can’t sit with us.”

 

“You go Glen Coco!”

 

And on the third day, God created the Remington bolt-action rifle, so that man could fight the dinosaurs. And the homosexuals.”

 

And two extra bonus ones because I think they’re important and everyone should live by:

“Calling somebody else fat won’t make you any skinnier. Calling someone stupid doesn’t make you any smarter. All you can do in life is try to solve the problem in front of you.” – Cady Heron

There are two kinds of evil people in this world. Those who do evil stuff and those who see evil stuff being done and don’t try to stop it.” – Janis Ian

 

Hope you had a happy hump day!

Inception Ending!

I love Inception! Like I really love it.

I would marry it, if I could.

It’s been my favourite movie for about two years, right about after I properly started to lucid dream 😉

And I thought, to embrace my strong attachment to this film (I hate calling it a film. I want it to be real 😥 ) I would share what I thought of the ending, since it caused a lot of debate and confusion! 🙂 This post will contain a lot of spoilers!

 

At the end of Inception, Dom Cobb (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) finally gets to go back home, after being accused of murder because of his wife, who committed suicide (Long story). This meant Cobb couldn’t see his children for a long time and going back home means he’ll get to be with his kids again.

When Cobb is having his little reunion with his kids again and the camera slowly moves to the spinning top, his totem, you can hear (you might not notice the first time watching but I have watched it 10+ times XD) Cobb and his son (James) speaking.

James: Look what I’ve been building!

Cobb: What have you been building?

James: A house on a cliff.

At first, I thought that was just a casual thing to say but then I realised, Christopher Nolan wrote and directed this. Every little detail means so much in his films, especially Inception so I took the “house on a cliff” into a great amount of thought. I knew that, in a dream, a cliff is a dream symbol for reaching the ‘end of the road’ in a particular lifestyle and that something new will happen. This could show that Cobb has reached the end of extracting information out of the dream world, etc, but will try to be a loving father, again, which means he’s determined to be with his kids again and will give up his job, which caused a lot of problems.

So…he doesn’t really care whether he’s in reality or not, which takes me to my next point, which caused a lot of discussion. The spinning top. If you don’t know, the spinning top is Cobb’s totem. A totem is basically what I call a ‘reality check’ because it shows you whether you’re in a dream world or not. (I have to do this in real life too so I’ll get used to doing it while asleep so I know if I’m in a lucid dream or not. That or looking at the back of my hand closely… XD)

The reason why we might not have gotten to see whether the top toppled over or had continued to spin could be because Cobb didn’t care anymore, so long as he was with his children. Nolan left it to our imagination and we got to make our interpretation on what we thought.

Basic RGBHowever, this makes me seriously question whether Cobb could’ve still been in Limbo. Or maybe he was in Limbo throughout the whole film. But that would mean that in Limbo, he went into a dream, into another dream, into another dream and into another Limbo…which means that he is back to what he thought was reality, but with slower time, to him. So Mal could be all the way up, back in reality, waiting for Cobb. And years in Limbo are only hours in reality so she could still be waiting….

Mind blown.

It makes sense to me. XD

But then again, Cobb said that the spinning top was actually Mals’s (his wife) totem so the totem wouldn’t actually work for him, But apparently Cobb’s totem is actually his wedding ring, which is only seen when he’s in a dream and at the end, he isn’t wearing the ring so maybe he’s in reality?

But ALSO, apparently you can’t kill yourself, in Limbo, when you realise that isn’t your reality to escape. You have to wait for the drug to wear away, which shows why Mal and Cobb did grow old together….

 

I don’t think many people are going to care or even have the attention span to read through all of this but if you would like more theories on Inception, I’m more than happy to since I have quite a few. Also, I could even summarise and clear everything out because it is a very confusing movie to the majority of people but again, I’ve watched it MANY times. Too many times….

 

Go on an adventure.
