9 Reasons Ferris Bueller Is The Best Ever
hello giggles

Ferris Bueller's Day Off is an iconic movie. Disagree? I'm sorry, you're wrong and you really need to reevaluate your life. I mean, it has humor, drama, a musical scene, and takes you on an emotional roller coaster throughout the film. Oh, and the pure genius behind Ferris's schemes? I'll repeat: iconic. But, the best part of the movie isn't the schemes or the friendship or the feels. It's Ferris himself. He's sweet, smart, a great friend, and all around great person. Everyone loves him (besides Mr. Ed Rooney perhaps). All in all, he's the shit. Here's 9 reasons why Ferris Bueller is the greatest ever.

1. He managed to sum up high school in a single sentence

Fun fact, this very quote was my senior year quote.

2. He had some pretty wise words of wisdom

I mean, come on. That's pretty great. And the fact he goes onto quote John Lennon? Even better.

3. He was a hacker before it was cool

And he did it on this dinosaur. I can barely work my Mac most days, so this is especially impressive.

4. Literally everyone liked him

5. He was a great friend to Cameron

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F18%2F6361235901796085821270893635_cameron.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=582&h=15a4b501a48c63420b89b83d818efa7d6893f13c58ddd4e6696adb9983905abc&size=980x&c=2754606095 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F18%252F6361235901796085821270893635_cameron.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D582%26h%3D15a4b501a48c63420b89b83d818efa7d6893f13c58ddd4e6696adb9983905abc%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2754606095%22%7D" expand=1]

Without Ferris, Cameron never would've had such a great day downtown, and he never would've been brave enough to stand up to his dad. So, really it was a win win when Ferris made him get out of bed.

6. And he was the boyfriend we all wished we had

He got her out of school, took her on the day of a lifetime, and asked to marry her. I mean, how can he get anymore perfect? Plus, that kiss in the museum.....

7. He served the ultimate burns

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F18%2F636123593170552778-1001219333_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=363&h=d8f5d026323dcce6c0a39335241b259fde2f46f091860f004dcb60390fe31411&size=980x&c=2932000139 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F18%252F636123593170552778-1001219333_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D363%26h%3Dd8f5d026323dcce6c0a39335241b259fde2f46f091860f004dcb60390fe31411%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2932000139%22%7D" expand=1]

This line in itself was iconic. I mean, the sass level is off the charts and I absolutely love it.

8. The boy could groove

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F18%2F636123594338670483-718935737_ferris-bueller-parade.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=599&h=8bedc821469ce2aad25ff7c00acc323cf0b44a88723c6c2dd2e55ad7a9ae2e89&size=980x&c=4201914010 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F18%252F636123594338670483-718935737_ferris-bueller-parade.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D599%26h%3D8bedc821469ce2aad25ff7c00acc323cf0b44a88723c6c2dd2e55ad7a9ae2e89%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4201914010%22%7D" expand=1]

You can't watch this scene without 1. swooning and 2. getting up and singing Twist and Shout yourself. It's impossible, I dare you to try not to do at least one of them.

9. And finally, he told us all that anything was possible if you had enough nerve

I'm not going to lie. After I saw this movie the first time I was ready to play hooky for a week and go gallivanting around downtown Nashville. And it was all because of this line. Looking back, I really wish this would've been my senior quote instead.

Thank you, Ferris. You supplied us with an abundance of life lessons and quotes to live by, and taught us exactly how far was too far (hint: the limit does not exist). Keep groovin' on floats and staying clear of Mr. Rooney. I sure do hope you ended up graduating high school.

Summer Slump

Summer isn't alway just fun in the sun.

Summer Slump

Summer is a time for fun in the sun, hanging out with friends, and living it up, but for some people, that's not the case. Summer is a nightmare for idle minds. Let me explain what I mean by that. For people with mental illness having the extra time to think and relax can be devastating for their mental health. Now, this isn't a problem for everyone but for some people who suffer from mental illness, this is a reality.

NYC Classrooms struggle with marijuana and high students

The Cannabis landscape has changed, and so have what schools experience

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reported that about 35.7% of 12th graders in the U.S. had used marijuana in the past year, and 11.8% reported daily use. As for coming to school under the influence, specific statistics can be hard to come by, but there is concern that the increasing social acceptance of marijuana may lead to higher rates of use among teenagers.
