Editor's note: In 18 days from now - which means on the 9th of March - the creator of Lime Reviews and Strawberry Confessions, Mette, will become an adult. Technically, that is. Having spent exactly 18 years on this planet then, she will be allowed to do a lot of things she wasn't allowed to do before (and of course didn't), but she will also have a lot more duties.
This is why Mette decided to celebrate the last 18 days of her childhood (ahem) with a little blogathon-thingy in which she will present 18 lists consisting of 18 entries. Most of these list are of a very childish or at least teenager-ish nature, so beware if you're looking for some serious Yoda wisdom. Mette is not going to restrain her most immature thoughts and opinions in the following two and a half weeks.
So go on and read her first list - if you're ready. And now, Mette has the word.
Thanks, editor! As you can read, this list is about school movies. Most of the entries will be American (High School) movies, because that's just what the majority of good school movies are. Anyhow, I found a few Indian and even one British movie as well.
Having only one and a half years of High School left (kinda High School, we don't really have colleges, only universities, in Germany so we have 13 years of High School - I think it's a bit different than in America), I can't say I'm exactly nostalgic about school. But yeah, sometimes I do think I'll miss these times, although I'm really excited for university (and my sabbatical).
However, my grades are increasing and I'm the best in my class (yeah, sometimes I need to brag) so I guess I'll survive the last year of school. Although my iPod Touch does represent a challenge.
Here are my 18 favourite school movies (in no particular order):
 Harry Potter Series: Aren't we all still waiting for our Hogwarts letter to arrive? I am. And it's getting worse because my sister is currently in a really bad Harry Potter phase, so she's spamming me with all this information and all these memes and ships - I'm afraid I might be turning in to a Harry Potter freak any time now.
 Dead Poets Society: A film I've only seen once a loooong time ago, it's incredible how dearly I remember it. Keating's monologue on poetry is mindblowing!
