#no one realizes the significance of this #the point of this movie is not that you will find another love #it’s that douches like tom will keep falling into the cycle of chasing a manic pixie dream girl #and probably think that she’s the one #but guess what? just because you listen to the same music or because she has a cute name #doesn’t mean that you’re meant for each other #500 days of summer the most misunderstood hipster hit the world has ever seen
And let’s talk about the fact that Joseph Gordon Levitt himself said the point of the movie is not so you’d feel bad for him and fall in love with him, it’s so you’d realize how selfish some people are.
Actual quote from him from an interview:
The (500) Days of Summer attitude of ‘He wants you so bad’ seems attractive to some women and men, especially younger ones but I would encourage anyone who has a crush on my character to watch it again and examine how selfish he is.”
"He develops a mildly delusional obsession over a girl onto whom he projects all these fantasies. He thinks she’ll give his life meaning because he doesn’t care about much else going on in his life. A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person."

"How does it feel being a married woman now?"
"Has your relationship changed?"
"OMG WHEN ARE YOU HAVING BABIES."
"I’m so so so happy for you! Enjoy this exciting new chapter in your life!!!"
Completely fair questions/statements I’ve received over the last few days from a lot of people all at once. I just wish I had a coherent answer for them. My brain is playing catch up, a lot has taken place and my emotions have kind of been running the show, so I don’t really know what’s up.
I feel so loved and I’m so grateful for how kind everyone has been, I’m just highly introverted and tend to shrivel up when put under a microscope. Even a warm, loving, complimentary microscope. I can’t even imagine going through an actual wedding, I can confidently and unsarcastically say that I would need to go back to therapy for a bit.
So yea, at the moment I just want everything to go back to normal. What I do know is that I love my husband. And yes, it is a cool thing being able to call him that. We’re trying out new nicknames and I now know that I do not like the nickname ’wifey’. Of course, it was my mistake telling him that, because now he calls me that to annoy me on purpose every chance he gets. I don’t know when kids will come into the picture, the thought of it still freaks me out. But I might be slightly less freaked out by it now? We’ll see what happens.
We leave for the honeymoon on Saturday and it can’t come a moment too soon. Ready to go into hiding, haha. ;)
