8 Reasons Why Josh From "Clueless" Is Still Bae

"Clueless" is the "Mean Girls" of the 90s. One of the most quotable, most funny, and most adorable movies in existence, I could never get sick of watching it. While there are many great characters, Josh Lucas is probably my favorite, although Cher is a very close second. Josh, played by Paul Rudd, is Cher's adorkable stepbrother who is trying to get a degree in environmental law and is seeking tutelage from Mel, Cher's father and Josh's stepfather, who is already a hotshot lawyer. More guys like Josh should exist in the world because he is honestly just a kind-hearted person. Even though this movie is almost 21 years old this coming July (crazy, right?!), here are eight reasons why Josh Lucas will always be bae.

1. He is an activist.

Josh is up to date on world affairs and is a staunch environmentalist. A man who is worldy and cares about the environment is a man we all need in our lives.

2. He is a reader.

Josh reads. And he's not just sitting there with whatever new book is currently on all the bestseller lists. He reads Nietzsche, a German philosopher who ruminated over morality and the human condition. Josh is a deep thinking individual.

3. He's funny and doesn't take Cher's crap.

While I love Cher, she can be a bit much sometimes and needs a reality check thrown at her. Josh is never afraid to be the one to do so. You need a guy to call you out when you're being ridiculous.

4. His relationship with Mel.

Mel, his stepfather, and Cher's biological father, is the closest male figure in his life and his loyalty to his stepdad is too cute. Men who are close with their parents gives them a nice vulnerability.

5. He's sweet.

Josh dances with Tai at the club after Cher ditches her and makes her feel better. That is a genuinely good guy right there.

6. He's a great friend.

After Cher gets mugged she immediately calls Josh, who, despite being on a date, instantly drives to come pick her up.

7. His love for Cher makes them one of the most adorable movie couples.

The stair scene is obviously iconic when Josh finally tells Cher how he feels about her. But my personal favorite moment is when Josh sees Cher in the infamous Calvin Klein white dress.And all he wants is for Cher to be the best she can be, and that is one of the best traits a partner can possess.

8. Paul Rudd.

Paul Rudd is just cute, okay.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
