80's Movie Meme - Some Kind Of Wonderful 1987

 Some  Kind Of Wonderful 1987 was one of the movies I watched in 1988 when it was shown on the local theaters in Manila. I was in first year college then at an all-girls school. A college friend recommended this movie to us, saying that "it was very touching" So I went to see the movie, I think - together with my "big sister" cousin Ate Edith, at the Quad Cinema in Makati. It sure was fun and romantic! :)

Some Kind Of Wonderful was another movie hit produced by John Hughes. Starred by  Eric Stoltz, Mary Stuart-Masterson, Lea Thompson, Craig Sheffer, Elias Koteas ( the punk friend of Watts), Chynna Phillips and  even the young Jane Elliot and Candace Cameron were in it!

There were some parts in the movie that I found quite challenging to do, like hanging out with the Class A group and still get better grades. As I watch the movie again, because I am now a parent, I love the father's zest to send his son off to college by encouraging him to save money aside for his college tuition. Quite smart move :)

Presenting "A Day In Life" my series of texts from my journals that I kept between the ages of 14 and 17. I'll be adding new entries every now and then to share all my thoughts, ideas,events, experiences, memories, ideas I had during the eighties. It is for my continued amusement that I read and reread my old journals, even when there isn't much content, I still gain occasional insight how I'm still in the process of changing to maturity. Most of the names have been changed to protect the people I recently found on Facebook. A few are just partial entries, my bleeping and blinding exclamations have been removed and some entries have been modified to give way to my now correct spelling and grammar. Yet the mix of excitement, melodrama and pleasant memories from the eighties are still much felt :)I hope, as you read my old journal with me, you enjoy the same sentiments.
