it's always kinda funny how i tend to watch this movie around the time where i lose a best friend, a really good friend. the first time i watched this was when my internet friend summer started drifting away from me. today, i realized my friendship with my best friend in real life is just gone. i love how i see myself in frances, especially when she says to her best friend "i'm gonna say this and hang up so you don't feel obligated to say anything but i love you". the last time i even spoke to her was when i would double text her when she wouldn't text back. we share a merry christmas joke because she's named merry. we had this joke where we were basically born next to each other because the reason we were friends is because we realized we were born on the same day at the same hospital. i haven't seen her in months. i don't know what's going on in her life. this turned into a melodramatic rant, but i think it's time to let this friendship go. i kept comparing other people to her and it's just not good but i love this movie so much. it's clarity from another person's point of view.
