Memoirs of a Gaijin Playlist

“Hey Look Ma, I Made It” by Panic! At The Disco

For this week, the song is again tied into the theme of my post. So far as personal anthems go, I have been greatly enjoying this new song by Panic!, especially as I approach these new beginnings and appreciate my past achievements.

“Hey look ma, I made it
Hey look ma, I made it
Everything’s comin’ up aces, aces
If it’s a dream, don’t wake me, don’t wake me
I said hey look ma, I made it”

Taken from the chorus, these words are wonderful in giving me the strength and optimism to charge head forth into my job as an English teacher as I begin work next week. I’ll stop to admire my medals before I go forth onto the next round of challenges that life will throw at me. I hope I can impress the judges, but, come rain or shine, at the very least, I will be able to tell my mother I made it.
