When I tell people that I was a really angsty teenager I don't think that I'm ever able to fully convey how angsty I actually was. Good thing I still have my english notebook from my freshman year of high school! It's a little on the disturbing side but ultimately hilarious. I love the Hole lyrics and the subtle reference to Sonic Youth's "Bull in the Heather", I'll be impressed if any of you can find it. Courtney Love and Kim Gordon were everything to me in the late nineties / early aughts. I also loved The Virgin Suicides---the book not the film. I had read it prior to the film's release and I remember being disappointed that Sofia Coppola glazed over the more grotesque aspects of the story. Although the soundtrack was totally my jam. I feel like I should revist that movie after seeing an alarming amount of teenage girls' creepy Virgin Suicides-themed shrines in this amazing post on Rookie. And to those girls, I say this: you may feel depressed, angry, and/or alienated but if I can evolve into a happy, fully-functioning human being, so can you! And remember to listen to "Bull in the Heather" as much as possible.
