A Life Worth Fighting For…..Santigold Nights

d(._.)b “Disparate Youth” by Santigold

Dis-pa-rate {dis-per-it, dih-spar-}

Distinct in kind; essentially different; dissimilar: disparate ideas

Disparate Youth

Sometimes at the salon, when the chance happens I listen  to the music and I pull out SHAZAAM! I’ve heard of Santigold, never really paid any attention. I’m definitely very eclectic with my music but it takes me awhile to really gravitate towards certain music. In other words, I never really thought she was for me. However, I kept hearing her at work in faint spurts and decided to investigate more.

Disparate Youth really speaks to me lately in life. I can’t quite put my finger on it. The lyrics are amazing. The melody, the machine gun beat. It’s just one of those songs that really speaks to me.

I’ve been a crossroads in life lately. I love my life but at the same time, I feel like a butterfly that can’t fly. I’m ready to spread my wings. Maybe I’ve outgrown my city at the moment. Maybe it’s time to experience a different city. Despite being super confident, I’m so scared of change. I dream big and strive for perfection and excellence. I know that if I take a chance and JUMP, the possibilities are endless.

Sometimes I feel as though I’m not prepared to go forth in my dreams. However, what really can prepare you for life. Nothing in high school or college really prepares you for life. Life is more than just what you learn from a textbook.

And If We Don’t Fly, We Will Run

I’m not the coolest. I’m not the best. I know that my way of thinking is different than a lot of people that I know. I always feel like a big fish in a small pond. Especially in Boston, it’s so conservative. I’ve  had to adapt. That is one thing my family would never make me do or tell me to do, is ADAPT! I’m actually listening to this song right now as I write.

It’s funny, I look back at myself a few years ago. It as nothing for me to make a big life changing decision just like that. I’m not getting the most out of my life at the moment and I know that. I ask myself all the time “Why are you so afraid?” 

I almost feel as though people think of me as a joke. I at times can be superficial in thought. I’m actually a deep person. This song means a lot to me right now. The meaning that really comes to mind is: In life there will be always a crossroad. There is always something that is going to make you scared of change. You have to take the chance, you don’t want others who aren’t really out for your best interest to really influence your decision. They were scared and didn’t change, they don’t want you to be able to go forth.
