“School is a battlefield for your heart.” — Angela Chase from My So-Called Life with lessons in Gifs.

MY SO CALLED LIFE

My So-Called Life is one of the most genius shows to ever exist. Although many of us were preschoolers when the show came out, we can’t help but now appreciate Angela Chase (Claire Danes) for her ability to analyze social situations with a mix of awesome clarity, derision and self-awareness. At age 15, Angela has her shit straight. (Or at least more than we did. Ugh, we were so dumb in high school.) With her crazy-mid-life-crisis-parents and her much-too-old-to-be-in-high-school love interest Jordan Catalano (Jared Leto *heartthrob), she makes us all look like fools. And on that note, we decided to compile some world-class gifs for you all from this cult classic just to make you realize that you know nothing about life after all (cuz we don’t either, haha).

Angela is so aware even on a bike.

After all, Angela sees through her lame-ass friends and picks out new ones even though everyone thinks they’re bad juju. (What a kickass bitch.)

And then there’s hot stuff Jordan Catalano of course (or just Jared Leto in our opinions). “I like the way he leans on things,” says Angela. Well, we couldn’t agree more.

She’s not afraid to tell it like it is.

She just sits there and thinks all the time. Stop it, Claire.

Everyone loves her too.

 Only Angela could pull-off a perfectly plaid dress.

And she makes out with hot men who stop her almost mindless yet awesome chatter.

She always contemplating… We feel so humbled.

We couldn’t get away with not featuring a “Claire Danes Cry Face” shot, so here’s one, weirdos.

She seems to tell us that the most important thing ever is to smile…

Or to blast “Dreams” by the Cranberries.
