    This song is telling everyone out there that its ok to actually get your act together and begin your life! Even if your friends call you lame or boring for doing this, you need to feel free to be who you are, and do things at your own pace. I'm fourteen right now but I'm looking for a job. I am little young for this, but this song helped me to realize that its ok to be me!
