John Hughes died today at the age of 59. He wrote every funny movie that came out in the 80′s and he also taught us a ton. I wanted to be like Ferris Bueller and I tried. Shit, I still try. I knew what high school was going to be like when I was a kid because of The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, and Sixteen Candles. He inspired me to start booby trapping my room after I saw Kevin get down in Home Alone. He even wrote quotable classics like Mr. Mom, Vacation, Uncle Buck, The Great Outdoors, Christmas Vacation, European Vacation, and a ton more awesome movies that I need to watch.
While you’re doing what you do, remember that “life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
