Kurt Hummel Appreciation Week - Day 1: Why do you love Kurt?

Not only did he show us that it’s okay to be different, he taught us to embrace it. To be proud of it. He made sure everyone saw him even if that meant he had to go through hell, dealing with homophobia and bullying on a daily basis. Not once did he give up and accept the crap people gave him for being different. He kept going and has always stayed true to himself.

Has it been weird being essentially homeless for months now? Do you miss having a stable place where all your stuff is?

I miss having a place that is mine, where I know where everything is, where there is space to think, and a private space to invite boys over to snuggle. I guess it’s made intimacy very difficult, but I’m not out here to make friends, I’m out here to put words down on epaper I guess. It’s being On The Trail and all that.

I miss mundanity, I guess. I miss looking at something and knowing I really know it, because I have seen it hundreds of times before. I feel permanently raw, sort of overexposed. Dazed and confused and jetlagged.

Having said that, it’s been sort of a relief this month to occupy an apartment of my own for a little while. Cass Khaw sorted me out with this place. I’m in a condo building with a gym, and god I missed gyms. I missed feeling like my ass is actually there. I missed feeling like I have tendons.

It’s very strange being homeless in this manner, and though there are so many things I get to see and do, I also long to just be in one place, and know everyone, and understand everything.

I keep having these dreams about me and my ex boyfriend playing Final Fantasy 8 on the sofa together in Edinburgh. We lived in that flat for 4 years, which is probably the longest I’ve ever lived in one place as an adult. I think that was the time in life that I was the happiest, too.

Probably when I stop travelling I will have to find a job before I ever get to contemplate how to get back to that stage again.

NMTD FAN GAME #2

OKay, so I am super super super late to this one but I am procrastinating my vcd homework so hahha this is a perfect alternative.

Favourite colour: Sounds cheesy, but I love all colours because I think that they are just all so unique and beautiful in their own way.

Favourite drink: Hot: Small soy latte/strawberries and cream herbal tea :) Alcoholic: passionfruit cider is the bomb oh gosh. Cold: probably like a soy iced coffee or coke or something.

Favourite movie: aHH such a hard question. But probably: An Education, Midnight in Paris or Ruby Sparks.

Favourite spice (& why): Tumeric is the greatest, I probably like it the best because when I went to Thailand at the start of this year I had this amazing dish called Khaw Soi which had turmeric in it and I just have so many fond memories going to the khaw soi place with my friends that trip :) hahah

Cats or Dogs: dogs OBVIOUSLY.

Celebrity Crush: Joseph Gordon Levitt,  Alex Turner from the Arctic Monkeys, Matt Corby and James from Winterbourne <3 <3

Favourite actor/actress: I have a very soft spot for Carey Mulligan and Rachel McAdams but on the actor side of things, maybe James McAvoy??? James Marsden??? I can’t really think of anymore at this time. I do love Robert Pattinson too but that’s just coz he’s absolutely hilarious and the coolest not-celebrity around.

Biggest pet peeve: AIEEE so many. But alas I cannot really think of any right now haha

What do you like most about NMTD? THE HOT ACTORS AND ACTRESSES no but seriously folks, they are all so talented like what. The top notch acting of it really sold me and the brilliant plot. Love me some Shakespeare.

What do you like most about the NMTD fandom? Everyone is so nice and (normally) really supportive of everyone’s opinion and I love how we love fanmixes and how active Harriett and Jake are in the tags,it’s so surreal but they are just so nice and their friendship is just the coolest.

Have you ever sneaked into/out of school? Does climbing out of the Year 12 room window count?? haha

Do you have a fun story about how you met your best friend(s)? No, not really :P

Favourite thing about your best friend(s): She is absolutely gorgeous and has a kind heart, and shares my love of broadway musicals and can quote romantic comedies with me. My other best friend (s) would probably be my three older sisters and I just love how hilarious they are, their awesome hearts for Jesus and the epic sing alongs to Taylor Swift in the car that we have.

Pedro has “All Around Great Guy”, Obama had “Yes We Can”, what would your tagline be?

ummmm hahaha no clue.

Which historical figure would you like to be haunted by? SHAKESPEARE

What do you want to do after you finish school? (If you’ve already finished school, what is a goal that you want to accomplish?) I’d like to do a Bachelor of Communication Design course at Swinburne :)

Where does your name (and/or URL) come from? My name is Jordyn, and means Descending or something. My URL means ‘to travel’ in French.

How long do you think you could go without your phone? At the start it would definitely be weird but after a while, I could probably go for a couple of weeks or something without my phone.

Do you like olives?  At what age did you start liking olives? NO NOT EVER EVER EVER EW

Favourite type of pizza/favourite pizza toppings? Chicken, feta and spinach  :) or margerita

Ever made a pizza from scratch?  How did it turn out? Mum does quite frequently :) they are always delicious.

Any embarrassing stories from your childhood that you would like to share with us? hahahahah I have plenty I am sure but I can’t ever remember them

What plays/musicals/skits have you seen in theatre? I’ve seen Wicked and the Lion King. Also, a couple of amateur performances of Beauty and the Beast, Ella Enchanted and Oliver Twist.

Have you read Muchado? No! I will soon I promise

Which versions of Muchado have you seen?  Which is your favourite? The Kenneth Branagh version, Shakespeare retold, some of the Tennant/Tate and A Bit Much. I like them all (except for A Bit Much) for different reasons :)

Kurt Hummel Appreciation Week:  Day 4 - Favorite Only Kurt Ship

Blaine Anderson  Kurt Hummel

"Do you want to know how I picture the end of my life? Just like in The Notebook, I’m sitting in a nursing home, talking endlessly about my high school sweetheart, my first love, going on and on about every little detail, as if they matter. Only, in my version, he’s there with me.

Samsung is making a musical sitcom about how cool it is to work there

Korean dramas are becoming a worldwide phenomenon, and it looks like Samsung is cashing in on their popularity. As spotted by Business Insider, upcoming “musicom” Best Future will explore young people’s dreams and challenges over the course of six 10-minute long episodes. The gorgeous cast will also be performing covers of popular ’80s and ’90s tunes.

In order to portray the “real” Samsung, the series will be shot at company offices in both Seoul and Suwon Digital City. The idea behind Best Future is to weave a tale about work, life, and relationships that those in their 20s and 30s can sympathize with, and to tempt prospective employees into working with Samsung. Amazingly, this is actually the company’s second foray into the world of sitcoms, the previous being an attempt to showcase the technology giant’s recruiting ideologies.
