Rachel doesn’t get any sympathy from me because she brought it all on herself. She did everything she could to get in Nyada, to turn around and dump it for Broadway. She got her dream role, a role we have been hearing about since season 1, and she got bored after a few weeks, and dumped it for a TV show. They in turn dumped her.
She is a 20 year old living the life in NY. It’s unrealistic because New York is crawling with talented people. They didn’t show her struggle at all. She got everything handed to her since she is a special snowflake. Also why would anyone want to do a TV show about a girl who was only doing Broadway for a couple of weeks? That’s unrealistic.
Mercedes deserved her success. She was never utilized enough in Glee Club. She never got featured in competition until the TroubleTones. Sam uploaded her video to YouTube and someone discovered her and wanted her to sing backup. That is not uncommon. Many recording artist get their start from singing backup, for example: Mariah Carey.
Then she got a chance to record her own album, but they dropped her for having morals. Then she sold her album out of the trunk of her car. It ended up on the right hands. Again this is not uncommon. Many musician got their start because their mix tape ended up in the right hands. She negotiated like the boss she is, and became a song writer, who was able to put out an album after she wrote a required number of songs.Neyo and Keri Hilson are examples of songwriters who turned recording artist.
Now she is promoting her album by doing a mall tour. Many upcoming Artist do these.
Mercedes storyline and success is because she never gave up. Her dream stayed consistent. She is on the right path to getting her Grammy.
Rachel doesn’t know what she wants. I think she just wants to be in the spotlight, not caring how she got there.
So she gets no sympathy from me!
With comments too great not to include. You should check the heck out of that webcomic series either way 8D
The comments on this are every bit as fabulous as the actual comic :D
This would be a lot easier than having to figure it out yourself
This is Duolingo, a language-learning website/app that deserves some serious recognition. It offers over 10 languages for English speakers, as well as courses for non-English speakers around the world, and they’re in the process of adding more.
But wait, I don’t want to do any more schoolwork! Not to worry little one, Duolingo is actually more like a game. You can compete with friends, and earn “lingots” (which are basically Duolingo money) to buy power-ups, extra activities, and bonus skills - like Flirting.
I’m already taking a language, what do I need this for?
It’s not really a secret that most school language courses (in America, anyway) suck and only teach you to speak the language at about a third grader’s level. Which is why Duolingo is so freaking awesome.
Teachers can’t give every student individualized attention, but Duolingo can. If you’re not learning the way you want to or as much as you want to in the classroom, Duolingo is a really great resource. It’s easy, tailored to you, and really effective.
Duolingo tracks your progress and reminds you when you haven’t studied for a while or need a refresher on something. Already semi-fluent in a language? No problem, just take a shortcut to more advanced subjects or test out of the lesson.
The lessons start with the basics (he, she, hello, thank you, etc) and move up to harder stuff. Duolingo focuses on vocabulary first, so you can learn the language and then the grammar that goes with it - much simpler than the system most schools use. It also tracks the number of words you’ve learned and how well you know them.
And you don’t even have to write out the flashcards!
Duolingo is perfect for reviewing everything you forgot over the summer or giving you the extra help you need. And if you’re trying to learn a language on your own, it’s fantastic - you don’t have to create your own lessons. Whether you’re trying to learn your second, third, or fifth language, I seriously recommend Duolingo.
Okay, what else?
Duolingo also has discussion boards, where you can ask for help with a hard lesson, make new friends, watch for updates, and share your achievements.
Even better is the Immersion feature. It won’t send you to Spain or France, but it’s pretty awesome. Duolingo takes real articles from the internet, which users translate. You can translate articles from your native language into the language you’re learning or vice versa, which gives you more experience and makes the Internet more universal.
You can suggest new languages and track Duolingo’s progress in creating new courses. Bilinguals (older than 13) can help to create these courses. Duolingo has a long list of courses that can be contributed to, like Punjabi, Hebrew, and Vietnamese. Oh, and Dothraki, Klingon, Sindarin, and Esperanto.
And the best part? IT’S COMPLETELY FREE.
If you love languages or just want to pass French class this year, USE DUOLINGO. Download the app and practice a language while you wait for the bus instead of playing Angry Birds!
I’m currently learning French !!! :P and let me tell you it’s easy, it’s funny, and it’s free!
