Warning: The post for the next couple of weeks will be dark and get darker. I had some issues in my life. But like any good story, our hero has to go through his trials and tribulations before he triumphs. I triumphed I have.
In school, I was a big, shy, quiet nerd. Know it's hard to believe. The quiet, shy part obviously, not the nerd part!
So this song really touches me. It actually made me teary-eyed the first time I heard it. But the sad thing is that I was on both sides of this story and did the same thing.
But I don't regret my nerd past. It wasn't always fun, but a number of good things came out. I realized that it's okay, and actually a lot of fun, to get excited about stuff, even stuff other people don't get! And it taught me to sympathesize and appreciate society's rejects and underdogs.
So I wear my nerd badge proudly!
A playlist featuring "Caught In The Crowd" and other songs that I feel captured my experience during my school days.
