    I didn't do Shakespeare before I went to college at 16 (terrible for an English student) but by the time I left I'd studied Macbeth, Othello and Measure for Measure. You should read Death of a Salesman too for drama-I loved analysing that.

    I'm staying away from the Glee forum from next week as apparently
    Spoiler:

    they're going to film the dance parts of the prom and they're hoping for spoilers from all the extras on set, which I don't want to see. I want to be surprised by the (hopefully) extremely cute Klaine interactions :love:


    I often want to tell people just to step back too-it's a shame when what should be a positive, lighthearted thing turns into hate for others who you should have things in common with due to the similar interest. If people want a couple not in the show they can read and write fanfiction and let the writers do their thing. The other day some people on the Kurt/Blaine thread were even blaming one of the writers for certain things happening as he wrote a particular episode and I was just like :facepalm: because the writers will all decide plot lines, firstly, it's not like a thing where they go 'you write this weeks then I'll see what you've done and carry on from there' plus it's their show so when you watch a show you watch it accepting that it's a story set by the writers some of which you might not like.

    Kurt was wearing a top hat yeah-I love his outfits and am so glad they're going to be back :woo:
    Thanks for the tip, I'll look into it! When I was in Oxford people were constantly talking about all the impressive poetry and drama they had been reading at school, and when someone asked me I had to explain that I finished school a while ago and even then only had 2 hours of English class a week, in which we only did vocabulary and grammar My family and friends think I'm insane and spend way too much time reading, but the truth is that I haven't read half as much as I should to compete with English students. Sorry for the rant - every now and then the sad truth of my situation upsets me!

    Thanks for telling me, I'll make sure to steer clear!

    I hope I'll manage though... Eleven days is a long time for the mentally unstable


    I think every Glee-related discussion should be as positive as this thread! :awesome: We're all 'normal' (*cough*) fans who accept each others' opinions and ideas. The fact that we all agree does help, but I'm sure we could disagree and still have fun discussing our differenent opinions.

    Haha, I've noticed that too! :rofl: I actually used to play that game when I was a kid; someone would write down two sentences and pass the paper on to someone else, until you got the strangest stories from it. The idea alone of the writers doing that makes me lol I accept the stories just as they are, and I'm extremely grateful to the people who thought them up. Sometimes things don't go the way I want them to, but hey, that's the fun of watching a series! A story that goes exactly the way you want it and expect it is a fantasy - and many fans don't seem to realise that there is a difference between Glee and fanatasies!

    I'm currently passing the time by taking part in the Glee role play on tumblr. I now have my Kurt, although the time difference is causing some problems-Kurt is GMT +8, I'm BST and some other characters are GMT-4 and GMT-8 :rofl:
    Haha, I can imagine that causing one or two practical problems! I am passing my time by listening to SOWK on Glee radio (it's on!! :woo:), and trying to figure out how Twitter works. I think I just 'tweeted' for the first time by replying to a post by one of the Warblers (don't judge me ), but then he sent me a 'message' in reply. What's the difference between a 'message' and a 'tweet'? Or is there none? I feel like a senior trying to figure out this system for youngsters

    A message is usually a personal message that only you 2 can see and appears at the top of your screen, if it comes up on your 'feed' or page then it's just a tweet reply. Which warbler was it? I'll be excited if you did get one :woo: you should also follow me (please don't judge my tweets if you do though, I tend to tweet at odd times of the night...about odd things (mainly Glee at the moment it's fair to say)

    I know, I love that this thread is so positive, it's always good to come here :woo: I was listening to SOWK while out today. I was also listening to Misery on the bus and started bopping my head like Blaine. The funniest thing was when I had my hands full of shopping in 20 degree heat, my ipod on Glee shuffle and Baby It's Cold Outside came on :rofl: I had no hands free to change it so I was listening to Christmas songs on the hottest day of the year. SOWK sounds even better outside in my opinion.

    I was the same with my literature knowledge-I was taught at home for most of secondary school so didn't have to follow the curriculum or sit exams so I focussed on my maths rather than english (I wasn't naturally amazing at maths) and just read for pleasure (mainly kids books to be honest, I found them good to unwind with) so when I got to college to do my GCSEs and A Levels everyone had done Shakespeare and loads of other really classic literature and all I'd really studied were things like Jane Eyre. I soon caught up though and when I went to Cambridge I managed to get into Greek literature and medieval literature without having done it before. I always feel stupid with literature though, I tend to go into exams thinking 'what do I actually know about this/how am I going to write an essay on it?' then just write and write. I swear I make most of the things up.

    I'm going to follow you on twitter! I'm diamonddust23 on there.
    It's so epic you got into Cambridge after being homeschooled!
    Funny you guys should mention Shakespeare, I was mentioning to a friend that I haven't read as much as I should. I used to read all the time and now I have no time to read and I can't actually take books in anymore. :sad:

    I think being home educated was actually the only reason I got in because it made me stand out otherwise I would have had no chance. It helped that I emphasised how it taught me 'independent study skills' in my personal statement. Really, it taught me how to do my work in the fastest possible time in order to do something much more interesting

    I went through a similar period with reading, lost all my concentration while ill but I'm slowly getting it back. It didn't help that I managed to lose all ability to take in books during my A2 year. I did my coursework without having read any books involved fully

    Ah, thanks! I feel like such a loser, I can't even figure out Twitter :facepalm: I got an email about it, and it's in my 'messages' box but not on my page - so I guess that was indeed a message. Nice to know there's a difference

    Yay, I'm following you now! Your tweets are great! I only tweeted once, I still don't get the whole thing... I responded to Curt Mega's tweet because he was thanking his fans in the cutest way ever, and then he sent me the following message: 'you are so sweet to say that, thank you! '. I bet he does it to everyone but I feel all special now :woo:


    I guess BICO didn't sound very good today, no SOWK is such a beautiful song! I saw them do it live at a festival a few years ago, and this enormously tall guy in fron of me lifted me on his shoulders so I could see it properly It works great out in the open - and especially if you can belt it out! Such a pity that it'll be 2 in the morning here when Glee is on, I don't think my family will appreciate it if I decide to sing along

    I am sure that you're everything but stupid with literature - if you were given a place to do it at Cambridge, it means you're amazing! I know what you mean though, I always feel like that, especially since I never had to study literature for school. When I did the ELAT it was the first time I wrote some sort of essay, and I'm still not sure if I actually did it the way you're supposed to

    I started reading English literature when I was about 15, and I was so disappointed when I never got to do it at school. Even universities here focus on language rather than literature, and you always have to divide your time between two different languages. I have been ill for years after finishing school, but I just kept reading whatever interested me at that time. I wish I would have had someone to tell me what I should be reading, or at least someone to talk to about it! I had a great time during my interviews, just because it was the first time someone was actually interested in my ideas and opinions - most of the time I get told to shut up

    I loved my interview too, I really liked the direction they took the discussion in and it was so different to college discussions I'd had before. It still amazes me how patient they are with the people they interview considering just how much literature they will have studied through undergraduate, postgraduate and research posts. I thought they'd make me feel a bit useless but they didn't at all. When I wanted to study things by myself the only way I could really do it was to buy York notes to go with books because they taught me exactly what I should be looking for...I continued to use them at A Level because they were usually better than lessons (hope my teachers never read this, considering I just posted my twitter name so they'll know who I am lol).

    I love how he doesn't just pretend to be a really nice person, he actually is! I didn't reply to his message though - I don't have much to add!

    I can't believe that only a few weeks ago I managed to wait until Wednesday evening to watch the new episode! I'm counting the hours until the 19th so I don't think I'll be able to sleep before I've seen it. I didn't scream when that happened; I just had this huge grin on my face that didn't go away until I went to bed My parents always go to bed really early so I learned to enjoy Glee in silence!

    I had two interviews. One was really nice, and like you I was amazed at their encouragement and patience. Their feedback said that I had 'some trouble with localised lexical meaning and linguistic detail', but I can only agree there. I was just starting out with analysing poetry, and fact is that I'll never be as good as a native English speaker, no matter how much I practice.

    The second interview didn't go so well, mostly because the interviewers never responded to anything I said; they just sat there nodding and taking notes. Thinking back, I know I said some pretty silly things, but since they never asked any questions or interacted with me in any way I didn't know how good or bad I was doing. My feedback says that my answers were too general and not specific and detailed enough - if they would have just ASKED me for more I would have loved to elaborate!

    I have read bits of York Notes, and they indeed seem pretty good! They're a bit too expensive for me though... The nearest library that has some English literature is an hour trainride away so I have to buy every single thing I want to read, which is already more than I can afford

    I seriously could have written this post! I used to read a book a day too and now? The only reason I finished Paradise Lost is because we read it section by section in class... haven't finished my other two texts properly. Sparknotes is my friend, atm! I have around 50 new books I bought/acquired when I was in hospital and I haven't read any of them yet. People keep asking me for book recommendations and I can't recommend anything because I haven't read anything!
    Fanfic is great but I struggle with the really wordy ones... I plan on spending the summer trying to force my brain to compute! Are you sure we aren't the same person?

    I had a huge grin too I was just sat on the sofa with my laptop and as the scene progressed I think I stopped breathing and I just became a huge grin. I woke up the next day smiling too lol. I know, when I used to watch the day after US broadcast I thought I'd become a huge fan then I started staying up to watch live-the last episode I stayed up to watch live, talked about it afterwards then shut down my laptop then diamonddust posted a link to a behind the scenes video so I actually set my laptop up to watch it (totally worth it-dayum darren) then there was a link to rewatch the episode so I rewatched all the worthy scenes.

    I don't really get to the library here either, they're shutting down a lot of local ones so it's about a 1 hour ride to my nearest library (that isn't just a tiny one with books about gardening).

    I was lucky in that my interviewers kept pushing me to expand-it's awful if they don't really because in a pressurised situation you don't really know how much they want from you and you don't want to ramble so you usually start with telling them a minimum. It's not fair if they expect you to know exactly what they want. I started talking about Enid Blyton in my interview...I even began comparing it to Harry Potter :facepalm: so I can only wonder what they thought of me. My second interview was pretty fun, it was just with this one guy and wasn't subject specific. I basically taught him about home education as he said he'd never met anyone who'd done it before.

    I was supposed to read Paradise Lost before going to Cambridge but I couldn't get past the first page my head was just :eek3: I have loads of books unread too, I bought a lot of classics which are stored under my bed, plus some more modern books. The stupid thing is I still want to buy books because I always think they look so good but I just can't get into them :facepalm: I'm pretty sure I am you :eek3: I'm replying to myself here!

    This Swing Sets and Sandboxes is so cute :love: I love how the writer is exploring the stereotypes of how boys are supposed to act (not holding hands, playing mums/dads and dads/dads etc). It just makes me wish that kids could grow up without having to conform to an adult view of how they should act-they should be allowed to use their imaginations. The dads/dads thing actually reminds me of how I used to play mums/mums with my Barbies. I think I just got rid of my Ken dolls-they obviously didn't make them in Darren Criss style.

    I just realised I didn't follow you both back yesterday-I have this thing about twitter, if someone starts following me I'm like :woo: I get to read their updates now :woo: then a couple of weeks later wonder why I haven't seen any before realising I forgot to follow them back :facepalm: I'm having a lot of facepalm moments this morning.

    Also...BIOTA on Monday. I know some people aren't fans but it was one of my most anticipated episodes of the season and I absolutely loved it

    I just finished that fic and :cry: OMG it was so beautiful. Everyone who hasn't read it should go read it NOW. That includes any lurkers reading this (and I know you're there!). So go, read it http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6856415/..._and_Sandboxes or I will judge you. It could spoil some things for episodes up to season 2 ep 16 though.

    I need to think of something to write a fanfic about...I'm not sure whether I'd be better at writing Klaine or Brittana...I think I'd prefer Klaine because at the moment I'm not the biggest fan of Brittany but I don't know what kind of story to do.

    As one of the said lurkers (who was a tad unnerved to be spoken to), I agree that it was so sweet! I normally avoid fanfic, but that one was pretty gripping, maybe just because it was so cute. It doesn't make the wait for the next episode any easier though!

    :hello: it's a lurker :woo: :party: :ymca:

    Nothing can make the wait easier :sad: I've tried everything. I'm just trying to make the time go as quickly as possible now. It's proving difficult.

    I had a huge grin too I was just sat on the sofa with my laptop and as the scene progressed I think I stopped breathing and I just became a huge grin. I woke up the next day smiling too lol. I know, when I used to watch the day after US broadcast I thought I'd become a huge fan then I started staying up to watch live-the last episode I stayed up to watch live, talked about it afterwards then shut down my laptop then diamonddust posted a link to a behind the scenes video so I actually set my laptop up to watch it (totally worth it-dayum darren) then there was a link to rewatch the episode so I rewatched all the worthy scenes.

    I don't really get to the library here either, they're shutting down a lot of local ones so it's about a 1 hour ride to my nearest library (that isn't just a tiny one with books about gardening).

    I was lucky in that my interviewers kept pushing me to expand-it's awful if they don't really because in a pressurised situation you don't really know how much they want from you and you don't want to ramble so you usually start with telling them a minimum. It's not fair if they expect you to know exactly what they want. I started talking about Enid Blyton in my interview...I even began comparing it to Harry Potter :facepalm: so I can only wonder what they thought of me. My second interview was pretty fun, it was just with this one guy and wasn't subject specific. I basically taught him about home education as he said he'd never met anyone who'd done it before.

    "Me neither," Kurt nods decisively. "But if the mommy carries the baby in her tummy, then daddies can't have babies together."

    Blaine furrows his dark little brows. "What if they borrow someone else's mommy?"

    "Hm. And she could carry the baby and give it to the daddies when it's big enough?"

    "Yeah, like that."
    Blaine= genius haha!
