Justin Bartha means everything to me, and not just because he's cute, he's a good actor, and all of that. I do love that about him, but here's the main reason why I love Justin with such a passion.
A bunch of my friends graduated back in '08. Because of that, last summer was one of the worst of my life. I would cry literally every day, wondering what I would do without my best friends at school to help me and laugh with me.
One day that summer, I was going through my movies and found an old favorite: National Treasure. I hadn't seen it in a while, so I decided, hey, it couldn't hurt. So I watched it, and I found myself laughing at Riley's one-liners. Laughing felt great, heaps better than crying did. So the next day, I watched it again, to keep my hopes up. Watching the movie became an everyday thing, with Riley showing me that it was okay to laugh and have fun even though my friends were leaving.
I no longer felt sad about my friends. I was too busy laughing at Riley to feel sad. I don't know what shape I'd be in now if I didn't have National Treasure, and eventually Failure to Launch, to help me through that summer.
I like to think Justin Bartha saved me.
