Some Lovely Quotes from "The New Romantic" (2018)

I can't tell you how many movies on Netflix I've watched over the past few weeks. Some have been great. Some have been...not so good. However there was one that stuck out to me in the best of ways. "The New Romantic" is a 2018 comedy-drama film by Director Carly Stone about a college senior and aspiring journalist named Blake Conway who is struggling to keep her romance-based column in the school paper. Her self-admitted lackluster love life fails to provide interesting enough material until an ID mix-up introduces her to the world of sugar dating.

I went into this movie with no idea of what to expect and honestly it was better that way. What I thought would be an everyday coming-of-age film surprised me with its realistic depiction of college life and the fear that comes with facing the real world. The relevant main character was a real plus too. One of the best parts of this movie was the dialogue and the matter-of-fact way it is presented. I highly recommend watching the film so you can get the full effect of the quotes listed below in all their hilarity.

"I can't have drugs, I'm emotionally unstable!"

Blake and her friend Nikki dressed up for a "Halloween in April" party.

This quote comes after Blake accidentally ingests a cupcake laced with molly that her roommate Nikki made. I don't know why it made me laugh as much as it did but it's a sentiment many college kids can relate to.

"I stayed with Tom because we were in the middle of Stranger Things and I didn't have Netflix"

Another quote involving the lovable Nikki, this time from the girl herself. While the movie is centered around romance, it tends to focus on the more realistic and negative aspects of it. Including staying with a guy just until you can get to the season finale.

"Do you believe in love? My parents got divorced...I'm good"

This is when Blake is feeling the effects of her drugged cupcake, causing her to say whatever comes to mind. It doesn't help that she says this to her sugar daddy while at a wedding. The awkwardness is astounding.

"I changed your name."

While on its own, the quote isn't much. However, Blake says it's the repetition multiple times throughout the film to the poor guys who get documented in her "anonymous" column. It does little for their conscious. Or their self esteem.

"You used me for material?" "You used me for sex."

From the end of the film this quote captures the very thesis of it all. Here is when Blake is confronted by her Sugar Daddy for documenting their relationship. It is a tense moment but the absurdity of it all really shines through.

Overall "The New Romantic" is a great feel-good movie that everyone should watch.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
