12 Reasons Dewey Finn Was The Best Character In 'School Of Rock'

If you want to rock, you've got to break the rules.

In honor of the 12th anniversary of the release of the movie "School of Rock," I thought it would be fun to do an ode to this wonderful film. If you have not seen it before, I highly suggest it. Its cast includes well-known actors and actresses, such as Jack Black, Miranda Cosgrove, Mike White, Sarah Silverman and Joan Cusack. Here are some reasons why Jack Black's character, Dewey Finn, is most people's favorite in the film.

1. He helped Tomika (Maryam Hassan) when she was insecure about her weight.

2. And added this to show that all sizes are beautiful.

3. His perfect response after his students asked if they would continue learning the core curriculum.

4. When he told the class the daily lesson plan, because who wouldn't want to learn this everyday?

5. How he let his students vent their feelings towards him in order to get them comfortable with each other.

6. He made sure the class knew everything about the history of rock 'n roll.

7. When he split up the class and put them in rock band positions, such as drummer, lead singer, manager... and even groupies.

8. How quick he was to come up with good excuses.

9. How his teaching inspired and motivated his students to try their best at the "Battle of the Bands."

10. How open he was with his class.

11. When he took Principal Mullins out on a date, bought her a couple drinks, and played her favorite artist so she would agree to his class taking a field trip to the "Battle of the Bands."

12. How he achieved his goal of performing in the "Battle of the Bands" with his new band: School of Rock.

Here is what the cast looks like now.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.
