Three days before classes set foot in the threshold of my being, I watched different shows in PC. This was actually not a matter of entertainment but of pure delight to kill my time and of course to stir chaos in my malign and lazy mind. I felt so helpless because of boredom. I said to myself that this must be what they call boredom suicide. You feel the suffocation of boredom pressing your wits to death. Aside from this fact, I also felt the urge to be lazy. Like huh? My system seemed to be rejecting the chance or opportunity to be productive.
Aha! I got the CD and played it on the PC. Glee Season 1. I was thrilled by the songs particularly, and not the cast, although I found their bunch interesting. Hmmm..It's not like everyday you can see a show like this where races unite and break their vocal chords to the delight of the audience. What inspired me was actually the song, "Defying Gravity", sang by Kurt and Rachel. This was suppose to be their "diva face-off" which obviously cue a ridicule in Kurt's part. Now, which is which? Which one is Glinda and which one is Elphaba or the Wicked Witch of the West? I like the Wicked Musical Version although the richness of Rachel's voice has the edge. Lol. The choices of songs in this show was one stroke of brilliance and good taste. It's remarkable to be exact. It's really defying gravity, defying expectations and defying norms. In one way or another, it's also implying to us to gamble and give up being a lima loser (of course, though we don't leave in Middle America). We can defy gravity though the likes of Sue Sylvester hinders our way or extreme obstacles like what Glinda and Elphaba experienced happened to us.
The other show which I got hooked on was Queen Seon Deok. When I was watching this, I can't help but have a thought of her being a jest of misfortune. It's like, "nung umulan ng kamalasan sa mundo, hindi lang niya sinalo lahat kundi hinigop pa niya ang tubig." But again, she's still a living proof of someone who defied gravity. I actually just learned that this was really a real history of a Korean queen. Amazed, inspired and awed were my impressions.
We also have our moments to defy gravity and this happens everyday. And when this happens to me, I will snag opportunity's pocket and crack its head. But for now, I'm going to defy my urge for laziness. Huhuhu...
