Day 30 – A Song That Reminds You of Yourself
Unpretty by TLC
Year Released: 1999
So this song is about trying to change oneself for someone or society’s standard of beauty. And really… it’s sad and just so wrong. I guess I see myself in this song because my whole life I’ve been told that I’d be prettier if I lost a few pounds or the classic “You’re beautiful but…” And honestly? It’s a nightmare I haven’t gotten away from. But it’s all up to me, right?
My outsides look cool
My insides are blue
Every time I think I’m through
It’s because of you
I’ve tried different ways but it’s all the same
At the end of the day I have myself to blame
Aaaand… it’s a wrap! I’ve done it! 30 straight days of blogging for this song challenge. As much as it stressed me out having to post every day, I loved doing this challenge as it made me do a little reflecting and a ton of reminiscing. 🙂 Most of my songs in the challenge are on the old side because for the life of me, I could never keep up with all the trendy and hip stuff in music. Nevertheless, I had fun sharing with you guys the songs that mean something to me! To all those who spent time to read my entries, thank you!!!
