Warning you now, we are about to head into some spoilers. So if you have not seen the movie (watch it since it has been out a fat minute) do not A. Complain about the spoilers or B. Read if you are expecting a spoiler-free read.

You romanticize everything.

Opening scene...

Giphy

When the movie opens Lara Jean is dreaming about her neighbor/best friend/sisters ex-boyfriend meeting her in the "forest of desire." She is basically living out a bodice ripper scene but in less pervy detail. Then there is the whole field or garden of desire. After she goes into how she "fell in love" with the boys its pretty clear that Lara tends to jump the gun when it comes to those she is interested in.

I myself can attest to doing that as well. I mean sometimes being nice and funny are just characteristics of an amazing human and other times in my mind...well it just makes me love you. Not in an obsessive 'I am going to write love letters to you' way just in a split second daydream about a fake life together sort of way. Completely normal right....? Well if you are like me and do this then you are one step closer to being a Lara Jean.

You have a favorite scrunchie.

You love scrunchies! Scrunchies are fashionable and extremely bulky like me. They hold up all of my thick hair and will never break or snap on you at purely unreasonable moments. Can we just take a moment to enjoy the fact that Peter had no problem putting this gorgeous girly scrunch on his arm at a high school party?

Pause.

We love!

You are obsessed with 80s' John Hughes films.

If you are not a fan of John Hughes movies you can see your way out of my life right now! John Hughes is the master of the 80s and I may argue the romantic comedy/high school movie. While we love him, honestly, his movies gave me and Lara Jean a very unrealistic view of both high school, romance, and the bad boy. I mean what boy likes to walk about with his hand in your pocket? Also what boy wants you to give him one of your diamond earrings? Then what jock boy finally sees the strange basket girl as the one that he wants? Also in the real world, I am pretty sure that we wouldn't end up with Jake. We all probably end up with a Ducky.

Thanks for the movies John but wish some of the life advice aside from the fact that "we're all pretty bizarre" was a little better.

You can rock some combat boots.

It cannot be unheard of to say that Lara has style! Her outfits range from the 90s, 80s, and early 2000s while having a bit of the modern. She rocks the vintage and brings it into today. While we may try to aspire to have her flare...well we try right? If you can hardcore get down to rocking some combat boots you are a Lara Jean for sure! Also, your love for vintage and past culture makes you a bit like her too!

You can't keep your room straight.

This is a very tame mess by my standards but still her room is a mess nonetheless. Throughout the movie she basically gets messier and messier along with her life until she ultimately decides to clean them both. Also when you go to clean your room it seems to just get slightly messier until ultimately you sort of make sense of the madness.

You can't keep your life straight.

Giphy

If you have had a freakout in a bathroom after gym class.

If your secret love letters have ever suddenly been sent out.

If your crush from the dance suddenly encounters you in the bathroom and says that he's gay and instantly seems to become your best friend over face masks and boy talk.

If you keep your nose in a book and out of reality.

Has one of the most popular boys in school suddenly developed a crush for you and you create a contract to fake date by fall massively in love with him?

Are you also slightly in love with your best friend or sisters ex-boyfriend?

If your room is a complete mess it must mean it resembles your life!

Honestly, Lara Jean Covey just can't seem to keep her life or room straight and neither can you.

You are extremely awkward in an adorable way. 

Giphy

How do you eat baby carrots silently? Honestly, most hard foods are loud so stop being so judgmental girl in a library. A little noise never hurt a serious reader.

That's beside the point. You tend to have a serious of awkward events known as your life occur. You fall or maybe you almost fall and catch yourself. Mostly though you fall. Maybe not off the roof in order to avoid your ex-best friend and sisters ex-boyfriend but her you sure fall.

You write down your feelings.

Giphy

In addition to falling, you tend to fall head over heels. You fall so very hard that you simply need to write it all out otherwise the blob of your spoken words will just mess the whole thing up. So you write write write and you feel oh so much better!

You are a grandma driver. 

We Heart It

Do you clutch the wheel promptly at 10 and 2? Do you take quick glances and still somehow manage to accidentally run over your past crush? Too specific? You are a sucky driver nontheless. Heck people feel better wearing a helmet when you are behind the wheel.

You are also secretly not-so-secretly-in-love with Noah Centineo... I mean, Peter Kavinsky.

Giphy

Honestly, who isn't in love with Noah Centineo? I'll wait....can't tell me of anyone. I know because he is so very adorable! As Peter Kavinsky Noah seemed to steal our hearts as well as Lara's scrunchie.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
