Never Been Kissed

Never Been Kissed

Never Been Kissed.

Film ini selesai saya tonton tepat pukul setengah satu pagi dan membuat saya bangun dengan kepala cenut-cenut serta mata yang berkunang-kunang beberapa jam berikutnya karena harus segera berangkat ke kantor.

I know, it sounds really stupid. Dengan kewajiban untuk masuk ke kantor besok paginya, seharusnya saya tidak tidur terlalu larut (with a naughty thought that I think it would be nice to have holidays every day… with paid.. hehe). Tapi film ini selalu bisa bikin saya melek dan ujung-ujungnya mulai senyum-senyum sendiri sehingga tidak segera tidur meskipun mata sudah lengket.

Apa sebabnya?

Hm…

Karena di bagian penutup film ini saya mendengarΒ  rangkaian-rangkaian kalimat yang membuat angan-angan saya terbang ke masa lalu.

Has it changed or it hasn’t changed at all?

There’s still that one teacher who marches to her own drummer. Those girls are still there, the ones that, even as you grow up, will remain the most beautiful girls you have ever seen close up. The smart kids, who everyone else knew as ‘the brains,’ but I just knew them as my soul mates, my teachers, my friends.
And there’s still that one guy with his mysterious confidence who seems so perfect in every way. The guy you get up and go to school for in the morning. … High school would not have been the same without him. I would not be the same without him. I lived a lifetime of regret after my first high school experience…
(Never Been Kissed, 1999)

Yes…

I instantly remembered that one guy… A guy who always looked so perfect in every way… who made me so excited to go to school every single day.

High school would have never been the same without him,
my super secret High School’s Sweetheart…
