"Ya ever feel like your train of thought's been derailed?/ That's when you press on- Lee nails/ Half the population's just waitin' to see me fail/ Yeah right, you're better off trying to freeze hell"- Gym Class Heroes- "The Fighter"
For today's Tunesday Tuesday, I turned to popular radio and picked "The Fighter" by Gym Class Heroes. Now I'm a Travie McCoy fan from WAY BACK, so I usually love anything he does. Every time a new single comes out, it immediately goes into heavy rotation on my radio, and this song is no exception. Add that dude from One Republic and a tear-inducing video and I am in pop music heaven! Guys, it's so good! Seriously!

Now the video and song is about being a fighter and never giving up on yourself and your dreams, so it has a great inspirational message, but the lyrics also talk about for real fighting a lot too, so it reminded me of the one "fight" I got in when I was in 7th grade. This girl KiKi just had it out for me. I don't know why. I was super meek in junior high. I mostly kept to myself, so I guess that made me an easy target Most people left me alone, but it was like it was her personal mission to make music class a living hell for me.
One day, and I tried to remember why, but I just can't, she decided we were going to fight after school. She told me to meet her at 3:00 under the flag pole out front, and if I didn't show everyone would know I was a chicken. I swear that whole day I was like a dead man walking. "This is it," I thought, "I'm going to get beaten up." I definitely didn't want to fight, I mean I fought with my little sister all the time, but I usually lost. I didn't want to fight a real person.
So.... yeah... this outfit has nothing to do with that. I wore it Saturday night and heard "The Fighter" Saturday night, so decided to combine them in a post. I've worn this recently,yes, but I added the long crocheted cardigan and some different accessories. So it's different. Don't make me beat you up!
