The Lady Gaga episode on Glee might just be one of my favourites (and not just because of the Gaga). This song gave me crazy goosebumps while watching AND it’s one of my favourite Lady Gaga songs. I’ll update the video once someone posts the song from the actual show. Sigh, I wish I was in a Glee club.
I had NO idea Neil Patrick Harris could SAAAANG (especially the last few notes of the song)! Half the time he makes me want to laugh just because of how he usually is, but I was pretty impressed! Of course, my heart will always belong to Mr. Schue ❤ Marry me, already!!!
Can’t get this song out of my head…
Randomly came across this girl(Lisa Scinta)’s cover of “Airplanes” by B.o.B. feat. Hayley Williams and I really like it! She did a lot of other really good covers I like including Bedrock, Blah Blah Blah and Bad Romance, but I’m gonna resist the YouTube frenzy and not blog them all!
Ps. You KNOW I have work to do when I start blogging again haha
I had an interesting conversation with my manager at work yesterday. She shared some personal information about her family with me that I could totally relate to and it brought me back to a very sad and painful place. Although I’ve gotten past that part of my life, it still makes me really sad to hear about other people struggling with the same thing. That conversation reminded me a lot about this song/dance from So You Think You Can Dance that I’ve blogged before and just had to blog again. There are so many different ways of interpreting it and relating it to yourself, and it changes for me every time I watch it. After that conversation, this video now also reminds me of how vulnerable and alone people can be; how they try to find ways to cope with pain only to become a prisoner of it. Most often it’s a cry for help with the hope that someone cares enough to notice and listen. This is for all those people who have been there and are there. Keep fighting… you’re not alone ❤
“To live your life to the fullest, start taking more risks and doing the things you fear. Get good at being uncomfortable and stop walking the path of least resistance. Sure, there is a greater chance you will stub your toes when you walk the road less travelled, but that is the only way you can get anywhere… The real secret to a life of abundance is to stop spending your days searching for security and to start spending your time pursuing opportunity. Sure, you will meet with your share of failures if you start living more deliberately and passionately. But failure is nothing more than learning how to win.”

I haven’t had the time to sit down and actually read this book yet (I swear I will!), but today I decided to just open it up to a random page and read whatever chapter it landed on. I found myself struck by this particular quote, not just because it’s very relevant to me and the person I usually am, but it’s also just a really good quote for anyone to live by. Taking risks and going outside of your comfort zone can be such a scary and intimidating thing. However, knowing you took a risk and failed is better than the regret of wondering what if you had taken that leap. Although it may not always feel that way, and it’s easier said than done, I feel like it’s something we all need to struggle with to really understand the beauty and reward of it. I know, this is such a random rant but I just thought I’d share… that is what a blog is all about, right? 😛
BEST part of the Madonna episode on gLee!
Ms. Pillsbury would’ve had the best time because of Mr. Schue ❤
