Loser like me
Have you guys watched the latest episode of Glee “Original Song”? I’ve seen it last week and I just can’t get over “Get it Right” and “Loser Like Me“. The first one reminded me of how to be young and in love and the later one reminded me so much of my High School years back at Colegio de San Pascual Baylon.
Looking back at the photos and trying to remember that part of my life, I can say that I was a clueless and naive high school geek. I just laugh about it now but back then it was totally a different story. As a young adult, I wanted to get the approval of my peers and I think I tried too hard to a point that I pretend to be someone I’m not. Things haven’t changed I guess, there would always be the popular kids and there would be the Geeks and the less popular ones like me. For what it’s worth, I wouldn’t want it to be any different, because it taught me the most important lesson in life which is to be yourself.
“Push me up against the locker
And hey all I do is shake it off
I’ll get you back when I’m your boss
I’m not thinking about you haters
Cause hey I could be a superstar
I’ll see you when you wash my car
All of the dirt you’ve been throwin’ my way
It ain’t so hard to take, that’s right
‘Cause I know one day you’ll be screamin’ my name
And I’ll just look away, that’s right
Just go ahead and hate on me and run your mouth
So everyone can hear
Hit me with the words you got and knock me down
Baby, I don’t care
Keep it up, I’m tunin’ up to fade you out
You wanna be
A loser like me”
This is my favorite part of the song coz I can really relate to the lyrics. I think I’ve listened to this song a hundred times over and over in my head.
There is indeed life after high school… So to all the GLEEKs out there be proud and keep your head up high!
