I’m turning 19 on February 7th, and I just…kind of became aware of it. Like two days ago. I didn’t even realize it was that close.
There’s no milestone at 19. I turned 18 last year, and I still have a couple years until 21. There’s no new privilege to look forward to, other than the fact that I’m almost out of my teenage years, which I guess is a good thing.
I don’t have any presents to look forward to, either. My mom bought me a phone a couple of weeks ago so that is my present, I have a car, and I have a job so I can occasionally treat myself to little things that I want. Like my Glee season 1 DVD that FINALLY came in today.
Watched a movie in one class, wrote poetry in the other
Wrote most of a poem I have to workshop in Creative Writing next week
Ate a piece of cheesecake
Cooking ribs for dinner
Not-so-good comes next though, because I have to go to Stats class and then do laundry for tomorrow because I work. Then I have to take a chemistry quiz, finish writing an essay, and drive back to my house to do my FAFSA form for financial aid next semester.
WHAT I’M SAYING IS I SHOULD PROBABLY BE DOING SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE.
The harmonies in the background are crazy good, the intro is ridiculously awesome, and Darren SANGS the hell out of the song. It almost sounds like a super high-quality live performance. He grows, and riffs, and goes into falsetto. It’s the most freedom he’s had with a Glee song so far.
I’d like to think this is in light of RM going to Darren’s show at The Roxy and being like “Okay…I’ll let that boy sing.”
This is the song that, when I first watched the pilot, made me go HOLY SHIT. The entire episode I was super-engrossed and amazed, but when they all sang Don’t Stop Believin’, I’m pretty sure my head exploded.
I remember when the Pilot aired in ‘09, coming to school the next day and this is all we talked about it in our chorus class. Last year, we MADE our chorus teacher let us sing THIS version of Don’t Stop Believin’ for our Variety Show instead of the Rock of Ages version. This song is just everything I love about Glee. <3
