I know I say that a lot of movies are my favorite movies of all time, but seriously this time: The Little Mermaid is my absolute, number one, favorite movie of all time. I don’t care that I’m not a kid anymore and I’m not supposed to watch cartoons. Literally no movie will ever replace my love for this movie.
When I was younger, I used to watch The Little Mermaid every single day (no exaggeration), something that drove my mom completely insane. I wanted to be Ariel. It was a sad obsession. Obviously all of these viewings instilled some pretty serious life lessons in me. I mean, you can’t watch a movie every day for years and not learn things, you know?
So, here’s what I learned from The Little Mermaid in GIFs, because it’s the next best thing to actually sitting down and watching the movie:
Dogs are the best, especially when they give you sloppy kisses.
This is the best way to determine whether or not your crush likes you.
Body language is pretty serious.
We always want what we don’t have. Sigh.
Clothes aren’t that hard to make.
The real right way to brush your hair.
Teenagers know everything. Fact.
That beds and sleeping are the best. Nothing else compares, ya know?
How to kiss:
Humans are complicated.
Sometimes you have to search for a long time to find your true love. AWWW.
Life… it’s hard.
How to correctly play with bubbles in a bubble bath.
The world is confusing, in case you didn’t get that already.
The definition of a perfect date.
That this looks easy, but it isn’t. IT ISN’T.
Teamwork is not all it’s cracked up to be.
Real beauty is on the inside, girls.
That this is the WORST no matter who you are or what you are.
Legs are overrated. Being a mermaid is where it’s at.
