This week we’re reminiscing the life lessons learned from 10 Things I Hate About You, because this perfect rom-com officially turns 20! A modern retelling of Shakespeare’s Taming Of The Shrew, we fell in love with this cute flick instantly. Starring the late, great Heath Ledger (sob) as Patrick Verona, Julia Stiles as riot grrl Kat Stratford, Larisa Oleynik as princess Bianca Stratford and the adorable Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Cameron, let’s start from the top.
Always be yourself.
Late ’90s style was the best.
On the cusp of ’00s and ’90s, this one’s more of a style lesson from 10 Things I Hate About You. Whether you’re into Bianca’s oh-so cute floral dresses and cardigans or Kat’s grunge khakis-and-a-top combo…

Widen your vocabulary
Tempestuous. Adjective: characterized by strong and turbulent or conflicting emotion.
We even learned a little French. Use this one on your crush.”Laissez-moi vous poser une question, Cameron. Quand allez-vous me demander de sortir?” which translates to “Let me ask you a question, Cameron. When are you going to ask me out?”
It’s okay to let your guard down sometimes.
