Two Roads Diverged In a Wood, And I

I took the one less travelled by,

And that has made all the difference.

Robert Frost

Hello, world.

I am in Savannah, Georgia. Starting my postgrad- Masters in Writing at SCAD (short for Savannah College of Art & Design).

I feel like I’m on a really fast roller coaster (even though I terribly fear them), and things seem to be flying like a rocket for me ever since I left Pakistan.

I honestly have no words, because this is a big change in my life. When most girls my age are forced to marry and start a family, I have been given the choice of living abroad, in the good old US of A, and take my future in my hands.

I had given up, truly. When I got the acceptance at SCAD and expressed my excitement to go there, my parents and family did not agree. In their eyes, I was 26 and unmarried, getting old and nearing my expiration date. However, one day in November, my parents just came up to me and told me that they will support my decision to go to SCAD despite what everyone says or thinks.

And so, I applied for and got my student visa, and here I am. I’ll march my band out.
I will beat my drum,
And if I’m fanned out,
Your turn at bat, sir,

I can sing this whole damn song, and I have realized that I am a theater nerd as well.

To new beginnings!

My Guilty Pleasure: Glee

Glee-poster

I’m a Gleek. There, I’ve said it.

I know, I know… “It’s corny and stupid, and lame,” as most of my friends believe, but I have mixed feelings about the show. It all started in June 2009. I was on our family vacation, and we’d just come back to our hotel, awfully tired after the city tour. I showered and changed into my pyjamas, got in bed and turned on the TV. When I switched channels, I came across this show but it had ended. A new TV show called Glee was next, it said. I was curious, and that’s how my fixation started.

The first episode was amazing, and I fell in love with the story and the characters. Mr. Schue, Rachel and Finn, and Sue were my favorites. Principal Finnigan made me laugh. After the first episode ended, I stalked the show on google. And then, I started watching the show on regular basis, crushing hard on Cory Monteith who played the male lead, Finn Hudson.

Like I said, I have mixed feelings about the show. Tragedy struck when Cory Monteith passed away. It was a huge shock for me. I cried for days, believing it to be a sick joke.  It was devastating, really, and for a while I had no interest in the show because the story was getting lame, even for me, and with Finn gone, I believed the show will go down the drain.

A few friends who were watching Glee, abandoned it soon after Cory’s death. But I didn’t. I was a fan, and I will be forever. However, I do admit that the last few seasons were disappointing. Very disappointing. They lost that spark, when Cory died. His character was essential to the show. Just like Lea’s Rachel, Cory’s Finn, was in essence, Glee. They were the whole show. Also, I shipped Finchel (the Fandom’s name of their relationship) religiously.

They announced that there will be only 13 episodes in the sixth and final season of Glee. With only two episodes left until the series finale, I thought I should write a blog post about it. Even though, I get annoyed sometimes with the new seasons, I still can’t believe the show will be over. The last episode showed flashbacks of their old episodes, and I started missing the previous seasons so bad that I’ve decided to watch the series again from the beginning, before the finale.

The Glee journey has been for 6 years, and come rain or shine, I was a part of it whether I liked it or not. I watched the characters grow, and live, and I also grew up with them. I was a part of The Choir Room, and I witnessed their highs and lows. For me, it was all real, instead of being fictitious. The series finale is going to be very sad, and I know I’m going to bawl like a baby when it’ll be all over.

Don’t Stop Believing.

Don't Stop Believing.

Okay. So yes. I like Glee. No hate, please. Everyone has a guilty pleasure, don’t lie. 😛 But tbvh, I think the new seasons are really bad. The show has literally gone down the drain… The plots are weird, the characters are flat, and it seems too forced- unnatural. It’s not the same anymore. The first season was the best.

I love this song, btw. RIP, Finn Hudson. His death broke my heart. </3
