This song can be interpreted in many different ways. As so, there is still one line from this song that stands out:
“Ain’t it fun, living in the real world?”
It is in the chorus so therefore is repeated quite a few times. Haley Williams, the singer, is saying this in a sarcastic tone because the world is not all fun and games anymore. It’s the truth about reality.
Some people have it all made, since the start. They never had to struggle. Everything was taken care of for them. Not an ounce of stress on their shoulders and doing what they please. This may seem like its the “ideal” way of living but it doesn’t teach any lessons. It doesn’t allow room for mistakes. It just doesn’t mean anything at all. They spend their life cooped up in a false reality. They are living a life of selfishness and doesn’t give anyone a second thought. Those type pf people need to know that there are 8 billion other people in this world too and that those people aren’t just there to make their life easier. When they finally experience the real world, they see that the world doesn’t revolve around them anymore. When the going gets tough, the tough gets going.
Essentially, everyone has to grow up and make their own decisions.We each have to be our own individual and not entirely depend on others. You can try and avoid life, but soon it catches up to you. To be independent, you must take risks, make mistakes and learn. No one will be with you every step of the way and no one will be there to fight your battles for you all the time. This is a reminder that THIS is reality and it’s time to wake up from your dream and take responsibility for your actions, your problems, and YOUR life. This is the real world and the world will not wait for you.
” If you spend too much time thinking about what you want to do in life, you forget about living the life you’re living right now.”
– John O’ Callaghan
Sometimes you just need to get your nose out of that text book and just take a walk outside and soak up some of that Vitamin D! Personally, I’m the kind of person that is always in the house either doing something very productive, such as studying, or playing mindless games on my parents’ iPad mini. Fascinating, isn’t it? No, I actually regret some of the days that I waste on pointless things like games. I always tell myself that I’m going to change this terrible habit of mine but nothing prevails. However, the thing that motivates me the most is probably blogging about it. It actually helps. I put down all your thoughts and goals in words on this blog, it does assist me in achieving them, no joke. Even right now, it makes me want to just take a stroll in my neighborhood and just think about random things like puppies yawning (SO CUTE).
I also believe that if people just have 10-15 minutes a day just to themselves it would make their day go/end so much better. Just sitting there, eyes shut, and worries gone, almost like meditating without the “OMMMM,” is so relaxing and tension relieving. So, just go outside and live your life, take some risks, and GET INVOLVED. Many people would say not to get involved but hey, it creates memories and maybe even some of the best memories so why not? I would like to advise everyone to live it up!
In life, things happen and things don’t happen the way you want it to go. We need to be the ones that are in charge of our own lives. No one can change the way we live except ourselves. No exceptions whatsoever. If your life is a mess, then you’re the only one to blame.
“Some people want it to happen. Some wish it would happen. Others make it happen.” -Michael Jordan.
Anyone can change their life at anytime they want. They just need to be the ones willing to make the effort and change their way of living around. However, in that effort, we also need to make our lives more meaningful by creating and doing things that are memorable. Eventually, we all die. The goal in life isn’t to live forever. The goal is to create something that will.
