Thought Catalog

Now I was downtown clubbin’, ladies night – seen shorty, she was crazy, right? And I approach baby like, “Ma, what’s your age and type?” She looked at me and said, “You’s a baby, right?” I told her, “I’m 18 and live a crazy life.”

Okay, I admit it – those are the lyrics from Juelz Santana’s verse in Cam’ron’s “Hey Ma.” I was hoping to just paraphrase that song for the entirety of this article, but it turns out that Cam’ron lyrics are like Latin: they sound nice when someone else recites them, but reading and understanding them takes years of rigorous training.

Here goes: flirting is a complex endeavor in which you are constantly trying to figure out A) Whether or not the other person is indeed flirting with you and B) Whether or not they mean anything by it. In my experience, the relationship between flirtatious actions…

A Ranking Of Every John Hughes Movie

Thought Catalog

Very few filmmakers have the ability to make a movie that captures the feel of a generation. For John Hughes, it was common practice. His movies were an escape from reality but also made you realize how much magic was around you every day. There will never be another John Hughes and for that, we are forever grateful to him. While these films are ranked, just because some are lower on the list does not mean they’re bad movies. He rarely made anything that wasn’t superb. The top tier movies are extremely difficult to judge against one another so please share your thoughts!

31. Home Alone 3

None of the original cast are back? No thanks. Not even a young Scarlett Johansson as Molly Pruitt can save this one.

30. Drillbit Taylor

It’s unfortunate that this Owen Wilson dud was his final project, but I think we can all agree…

Anyone who falls in love is searching for the missing pieces of themselves. So anyone who’s in love gets sad when they think of their lover. It’s like stepping back inside a room you have fond memories of, one you haven’t seen in a long time.

Don’t feel sorry for yourself. Only assholes do that.
No matter how much suffering you went through, you never wanted to let go of those…

This Incredible Children’s Choir Performance Of “Florence + The Machine” Will Give You Goosebumps


Thought Catalog

To be fair, pretty much anything where little children are singing gives me goosebumps. But this one in particular, in addition to being adorable, is also really well-executed. That little boy at the beginning! Ahh!

Something about the lyrics is made so much more powerful when the little ones are saying them, and watching the teeny girls with the headphones three times too big for their ears sing their hearts makes me want to shake that devil right off my back to keep on dancing. Thanks to Capital Choir for making this awesome song, and let’s all enjoy their skill on repeat today! [tc-mark]

Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can’t buy more hours. Scientists can’t invent new minutes. And you can’t save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you’ve wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow.
