Did Your Students Do This Too?

This morning, upon seeing my first female student, I was immediately berated because I, apparently, missed a very important memo:


Apparently, today is the ten year anniversary of Mean Girls, and people everywhere (according to my facebook feed) are wearing pink in celebration.

Can we just talk about this for a second? How is it even possible that Mean Girls is ten years old?


I swear it's only been like 5. To be fair, though, I'm the person who still thinks of the 90's when someone says something happened 10 years ago.

My students were only 1 or 2 when it premiered.

I'm not sure which of these facts makes me feel older.

All day long, my students quoted the movie at every opportunity. During our soccer match in PE, the girls had way too much cheering for "Glen Coco" AKA every student in the game.

And I heard this quote more times than I could possibly count...

Don't get me wrong. Mean Girls is probably one of my all-time favorite movies. I will watch it every single time it plays no matter how far it is into the story. It doesn't really matter because I have it pretty much memorized at this point.

So, I'm slightly disappointed that I missed this milestone. Do you think it counts if I wear pink next Wednesday???


  1. I made sure I sported some pink today too...although truth be told, I owned a lot more pink back when this movie came out! I think wearing pink next Wednesday would show how hardcore of a fan you are ;)

  2. You should wear pink every Wednesday from now until the end of time. Just sayin'! xo

  3. I wore red... Opps!

    Haha, I missed the boat too! can't believe that 10 years ago that movie came out!! I'm sure I'm not that old!

  4. I wore pink, and really wanted to post a blog dedicated to the movies best gifs but Chicago has seemed to turn everything upside down. Tuesday when I got back I had morning duty and I listened to my 8th grade boys determine what colors would be worn for the rest of the week: tomorrow we wear red, Thursday we wear...apparently this will never stop being a thing.
