“I’m pretty sure there’s a lot more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking. And I plan on finding out what that is.” ~Derek Zoolander
One of my favorite movies of all time is probably Zoolander. The most incredible quotable lines, absurdity, and absolute ridiculousness comprises the full 89 minutes of the film. Add a little cameo by the one and only David Bowie, and you have the perfect recipe for my entertainment!
I also really like to read blogs. Sometimes there’s something hugely relieving by reading the words of a stranger you have never met (and probably never will) who is going through something just like what you are currently experiencing. Especially in the craziness and struggle of my twenties. There is always some nugget of wisdom that is worth taking a moment to read.
These two glorious things appeared to me hand in hand in the form of a fantastic post at Unlost titled “The Derek Zoolander Guide to Finding Yourself.” Check it out. You won’t regret it.
“If there is anything that this horrible tragedy can teach us, it’s that a male model’s life is a precious, precious commodity. Just because we have chiseled abs and stunning features, it doesn’t mean that we too can’t not die in a freak gasoline fight accident. ” ~Derek Zoolander
