With the start of your first semester just around the corner and summer in full bloom, I just couldn’t help but be reminded of this awesome musical number from 500 Days of Summer. I love this scene because it’s one of those rare moments of film-making brilliance that captures what it really feels to realize that you’re falling in love with someone for the first time.
Undoubtely, 500 Days of Summer is one of my all-time favourite ‘unconventially-romantic’ love stories! It really does captures the lows and highs of falling in-and-out & love. Ultimately, it’s also a movie about finding out about yourself and learning that no one person can make you happy if you’re not happy.
But, I digress… So, as we count down the last of your summer days before the start of your university journey, make sure to savour these moments before school start! There’s a lot of ‘last moments’ that you’re probably going through. I certainly remember mine and I know nobody does this anymore, but I also use to do what Tom did in that movie and recorded mix tapes for my girlfriend. Despite what Zoey Deschanel thinks, it’s actually a very romantic thing to do… 😉
