“Don’t be the good boy you always have to be”.

So this weekend was definitely the last time I go out this term. I wasn’t supposed to go out, I was supposed to do work. I am so glad I said fuck no to the work and fuck yes to the jaeger.

Ever since I saw Frozen on Friday – an amazing, fantastic return to perfection for Disney in musical masterpieces and general storytelling. Really, I love it – it’s kinda sat in my mind. The storyline, the characters, the music. The main song ‘Let It Go’ is easily one of the best to ever come out of a Disney film. Not only does it sound like it’s straight off Broadway, but it’s got an emotional punch which fits peculiarly with exactly how I feel inside. And I’m sure a lot of other people, too.

No, I don’t have control over ice and wind and all that jazz (although that would be awesome, won’t lie) but instead how sick I am of hiding away my secrets and not being myself, concealing and not feeling, just being the good boy I’m expected to be. There have been so many times where I could’ve just dropped it all, and gone a bit wild. Lived a bit, did what I wanted and let my inhibitions go for just a moment. But alas, I didn’t, I held it in.

So it’s crazy how an expertly animated Princess (nay, Queen by this point) can flip all that. How Disney, did you push a 20 year old over the edge? It brought tears to my eyes and made me reassess everything I had going for me.

I Let It Go on Saturday night.

No more concealing. No more not feeling.

No more caring what people say.

And I met someone.

I went home with him.

And I am so proud of myself.

It was one of the best fucking decisions I’ve made in a long, long time. Disney, you’ve taught me all the best lessons in life. And here’s the newest one you taught me:

Be yourself, always. Don’t be afraid. Don’t be alone. Never shy away from who you are. And live a little, be free.
