How To Absolutely Relate to a Classic 80s Song

When I saw Breakfast Club was finally added onto Australian Netflix, I was pretty whelmed. Unpopular opinion – even though there’s a character named Claire (which, let’s be honest, is the best name out there) I’m not the biggest fan of the movie.  In fact, the only thing I can really remember about it is the closing song of Don’t You (Forget About Me) and that’s only because I’ve watched Pitch Perfect over 20 times in the last few years. (Worth it.)

BUUUT it got me thinking, damn. I relate to that classic 80s song because MAN OH MAN IT'S BEEN A LITTLE WHILE SINCE MY LAST POST.  Not that I'm low key freaking out or anything that everyone's gone and forgotten about me (It's a real fear, tbh.)  - but I feel totally lost not coming on and updating every few days!  If you're super lost on what I'm talking about, (I can't blame you, I'm a bit over the place at the moment) but I've officially completed my move up north.  I'm settling in okay!

There’s been a few minor hiccups:

  • My computer is currently MIA in the post
  • I’ve come down super sick
  • And my body has gone haha nope towards the current heat

But apart from that, we’ve comfortably moved into the new place.  I’ll do up another post later this week about the journey, and give a bit of a house tour,  but this is just a quick one today to say I’m still alive, partly well, and I miss everyone!

Let me know in the comments how you’ve been, and what your favourite 80’s jam is!

    I first saw The Breakfast Club in the theatre in the 80s. I recently watched it again on Netflix and have to agree with you. It’s pretty slow moving and not as good as I remembered it. LOL I do love that song though!

    The 80s is my music heyday! So many great songs, it’s hard to pick a favourite.

    Glad to hear you’re settling into your new home!

    Gotta love some Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush!

    Hope you feel better soon.
