So raise a glass to teenage girls for their linguistic innovation. It expands our expressive vocabulary, giving us new words and modes of expression. Speakers may nostalgically look to a previous golden era of English, but the truth is that Shakespeare’s English is an abomination of Chaucer’s English, which is an abomination of Beowolf’s. Language is inherently unstable. It’s in a constant state of flux, made and remade—stretched, altered, broken down and rearranged—by its speakers every day. Rather than a sign of corruption and disorder, this is language in its full vitality—a living, evolving organism.
THERE IS ACTUALLY NOT A BETTER FEELING THEN TO HAVE A BESTFRIEND WHO ALSO THINKS OF U AS THEIR BESTFRIEND
What does she want with Alex, anyway? He dresses funny, he reads the Wall Street Journal. He’s not even cute! In a conventional way. I mean, he’s just like this nerd who sits and edits spreadsheets all the time. Ugh. And he’s a hideous dancer. Couldn’t take him anywhere.
Wait a second. What am I stressing about? This is Alex. Okay, okay, so he’s kind of a Baldwin. But what would he want with Harriet? She couldn’t make him happy. Alex needs someone with imagination. Someone to take care of him. Someone to laugh at his jokes! …In case he ever makes any.
…Oh, my god! I love Alex! I am majorly, totally, butt-crazy in love with Alex!
Forever judging people based on their opinion of Sansa Stark.
