In 1987, young Jenna Rink yearns to be popular, but can only persuade the "Six Chicks" – the ruling clique led by Lucy "Tom-Tom" Wyman – to attend her 13th-birthday party by doing their homework.

Jenna's best friend, Matty Flamhaff, brings her a pink dollhouse he made himself, a packet of "magic wishing dust" he sprinkles on the dollhouse roof. The Six Chicks arrive with the cutest boys in class, trick Jenna into playing "seven minutes in heaven". While Jenna waits blindfolded in a closet, expecting to kiss one of the boys, the Six Chicks and the boys leave with her completed homework, Matty finds Jenna alone.

Jenna discovers she works for Poise, her favorite fashion magazine, with her co-editor and best friend Lucy. Poise has been scooped so by rival magazine Sparkle that editor-in-chief Richard believes someone is tipping them off. Jenna finds Matty’s address and races to Greenwich Village where the adult Matt, a struggling photographer, is unable to fill in her missing past, as she became head of the "Six Chicks" and stopped speaking to him.

Lucy is revealed to be the adult Tom-Tom. While delighting in her freedom, Jenna stumbles through adult life, learning enough to advise the 13-year-olds she prefers to spend time with, she saves a Poise party by leading the guests, including Matt, in an impromptu performance of the “Thriller” line dance. Her emerging past reveals that the adult Jenna stole ideas, refused to speak to her parents, had sex with a co-worker’s husband; the struggling magazine is forced to redesign, Jenna overhears Lucy badmouthing her, planning to cut Jenna out of her redesign presentation. Jenna returns to her childhood home in New Jersey, weeping in the same basement closet and reuniting with her parents, she apologizes to Matt, hires him for her yearbook-inspired redesign photoshoot. Though Matt is engaged to Wendy, eager for him to move to Chicago and Matt begin to fall for each other. Jenna's plans to save the magazine are a rousing success, while Lucy’s presentation fails, she lies to Matt that Jenna decided not to use his pictures.

Looking for Matt to deliver the good news, Jenna finds Wendy, who reveals their wedding is the next day. Richard informs Jenna that Lucy gave Jenna’s material, including Matt’s photographs, to Sparkle and has become their new editor-in-chief killing Poise. Jenna confronts Lucy, who scornfully reveals that she discovered Jenna was the one sabotaging her own magazine. Jenna rushes to Matt's childhood home, next door to hers. Finding Matt, she declares that she is not the bad person she seemed to be, that he would marry her if he could see who she was. Matt in his tuxedo, tells her they cannot turn back time, but reveals the pink dollhouse he has kept for 17 years. In tears, Jenna asks for it back, Matt sadly confesses that he always loved her. Jenna sits with the dollhouse as the wedding begins, sees a young Matt and herself inside, she shuts her eyes, specks of the wishing dust whirl around her. Opening her eyes, Jenna finds herself back in 1987 on her 13th birthday; this time, when Matty finds her alone in the closet, she kisses him.

Greek colonisation

Greek colonisation was an organised colonial expansion by the Archaic Greeks into the Mediterranean Sea and Black Sea in the period of the 8th–6th centuries BC. This colonisation differed from the migrations of the Greek Dark Ages in that it consisted of organised direction by the originating metropolis instead of the simple movement of tribes which characterized the earlier migrations. Many colonies that were founded in this period evolved into strong city-states and became independent of their metropoleis; the reasons for colonisation had to do with the demographic explosion of this period, the development of the emporium, the need for a secure supply of raw materials, but with the emerging politics of the period which drove sections of the population into exile. Population growth created a scarcity of farm land and a restriction of the ability of smallholders to farm it, similar in every city-state. In places with surplus population, this led to a demand for additional living space; the location of each colonial establishment was dictated by the supply of unexploited resources which would provision the metropolis, as well as the finished goods it would produce.

The development of the emporium was among the more important motivations for the founding of a colony. The colonies created new markets, supplied the metropoleis with significant raw materials and constituted important way stations on the long-distance trade journeys of the era; the troubled political situation in many cities, along with the establishment of tyrannical government, drove the political opposition into exile and into a search for new places of residence. The founding of the colonies was an organised enterprise; the launch was organized by the metropolis, although in many cases they collaborated with other cities. The place to be colonised was selected in advance with the goal of offering business advantages, but security from raiders. In order to create a feeling of security and confidence in relation to the new colony, the choice of place was decided according to its usefulness; the mission always included a leader nominated by the colonists. In the new cities, the colonists parcelled out the land, including farms.

The system of governance took a form reminiscent of that which prevailed in the metropolis. The first founders of colonies were the Euboeans, who founded colonies at the beginning of the 8th century B. C. in Southern Italy and Chalcidice. The two most powerful states on Euboea and Eretria founded numerous colonies in Chalcidice, the most important of, Olynthus, they were the first to found colonies in Southern Italy; the first colony that they founded there was Pithecusae on the Isle of Ischia. Subsequently, they founded the colonies of Cumae, Zancle and Naxos. At the end of the 8th century Euboea fell into decline with the outbreak of the Lelantine War and the baton of colonial foundation was passed to other Greek cities. In the 7th century, many colonies were founded in Ionia, Southern Italy, Thrace and on the Black Sea. Other Greek colonies were founded on the coast of Gaul, on the Cyrenaica peninsula in Africa and in Egypt. In this burst of colonial expansion cities such as Corinth, Miletus and Phocaea took the lead.

Numerous colonies were founded in the present Northern Greece, chielfy in the region of Chalcidice but in the region of Thrace. Chalcidice was settled by Euboeans, chiefly from Chalcis; the most important settlements of the Euboeans in Chalcidice were Olynthos, Mende, Sermyle and Cleonae in the peninsula of Athos. Other important colonies in Chalcidice were Acanthus, a colony, founded by colonists from Andros and Potidaea, a colony of Corinth. Numerous other colonies were founded in the region of Thrace by the Ionians from the coast of Asia Minor. Important colonies were Maroneia, Abdera; the Milesians founded Abydos and Cardia on the Hellespont and Rhaedestus in Propontis. The Samians colonised the island of Samothrace; the Parians colonised Thasos under the leadership of the oecist and father of the poet Archilochus, Telesicles. The region of the Ionian Sea and that of Illyria were colonized by Corinth; the Corinthians founded important overseas colonies on the sea lanes to Southern Italy and the west which succeeded in making them the foremost emporia of the western side of the Mediterranean.

Important colonies of Corinth included Leucada, Anactoreum, Actium and Corcyra. The Corinthians founded important colonies in Illyria, which evolved into important cities and Epidamnus was a Greek colony in Illyria. Nymphaeum was another Greek colony in Illyria; the first to colonise Southern Italy were the Euboeans, who with the move to Pithecusae, founded a series of cities in that region. The second city that they founded was Cumae, nearly opposite Ischia; the colonists from Cumae founded Zancle in on Sicily, nearby on the opposite coast, Rhegium. Further, the Euboeans founded Naxos, which became the base for the founding of the cities of Leontini and Catania. In this effort they were accompanied by small numbers of Ionians; the strongest of the Sicilian colonies was Syracuse, an 8th-century B. C. colony of the Corinthians. Colonists of that same period from Achaea founded the cities of Sybaris and Croton in the Gulf of Taranto but in the Metapontum in the same district. In the same area, refugees from Sparta founded Taranto which evolved into one of the most p
