I stole this from my old blog, I’m Not Trying to Impress You, But I’m Batman, that I kept during college. I’ve watched plenty more movies since then and so I have, of course, learned plenty more life lessons, amongst other things.

I also made a list of all the things television has taught me. That of which, you can find right here.
