As I was driving in my car tonight, the song “Not Like the Movies” by Katy Perry came on. In this song she is stating about how her love is not like the movies, but that is how it should be. I beg to differ. As I looked back on my day, and compared it to the lives of average girls in movies, there were not many similarities.
First of all, I was not attending some big party. Granted it is a Wednesday on the first day of Easter break, but still I think its pretty fun. I went to a pizzeria, sat with friends, laughed, and ate a salad. Now, I am sitting at my desk eating some raw chocolate and blogging. I don’t really see the problem with that.
You see, today girls think that they always have something to prove. Like there is someone constantly watching over them deciding what is cool and what isn’t. Why aren’t we staying true to ourselves and just doing what we want to? At the end of the day, nothing you experience is going to be like a fictional movie because this is real life: it is going to be better. Who needs Lloyd Dobler raising a radio over his head in order to show his love? I don’t!
We as humans strive to be different, so accept that. Don’t think that just because your life isn’t depicted in a show or movie means it is not interesting, because it is. The human experience is bizarre, it has no true definition. So who said being healthy isn’t cool? Because I know first hand that it is :) Life isn’t like the movies, nor will it ever be. Be true to yourself because in your heart you know what makes you different then those girls you see on tv.
