the breakfast club

 i cant believe i just watched a movie that was released 25 years ago. 5 years before i was even born!

a brilliant movie about 5 kids from different cliques - a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal.

though society may dictate that these 5 people can never be friends, but on one fine saturday, they proved everybody wrong.

comparing a princess with a criminal is like comparing the sky and the seas. they're so far apart and totally different, they're not even in the same category. they're kinda incomparable. and that goes with the other cliques as well. though the athlete and the princess do sort of belong together. and the criminal and the basket case are similar in terms of being outsiders. but that's about it.

the premise of the movie is that even though they are so different, deep deep down, they're more or less the same.
they discover that they've all been through the same shit as everybody else have.
same daddy issues
they've all been ignored
been objectified
money problems
peer pressure? u bet.

so let us not be so quick to judge one another. we're pretty much the same, folks.
we're all screwed one way or another.
its just a matter of how good we are at hiding it.

guess which one's the brain, the athlete, the princess, the basket case and the criminal.

so where do i fit in with these 5 groups?
i'm definitely not an athlete.
not so much of a criminal.
sure as hell not a princess.
a basket case? well..maybe a little bit
a brain? most definitely. if i do say so myself. =P

how about u?
