Like many people in my age generation, John Hughes helped define my adolescence with ‘The Breakfast Club’, ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’, and ‘Uncle Buck’.

I watched all the classic John Hughes movies so many times that I practically have them all memorized. I may sound dated, but I still use the movie lines in common conversation. I would feel bad, but people always catch the reference.

John Hughes managed to make his life have meaning by leaving behind so much. I will have to have a John Hughes marathon soon, in honor of the king of the teen movie.

To quote Ferris Bueller’s Day Off “Life moves pretty fast. You don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
