Turning the Big 16…?

birthdayI don’t know about you, but I have found many birthdays are labeled “big”. People always ask me “So, how does it feel to be (insert new age)”, and my answer is always the same: well, it felt a little bit like yesterday, and the day before. That might be a little cynical, but there you have it.

And what makes a particular birthday better, or more important, than another one? Is it the fact that it has a zero on the end, or is it because you can now do something different than you could before? Don’t get me wrong, I love birthdays, but what I don’t get is that some people expect a big change on the day. I find that changes occur throughout the year to change how we view things  and further our understanding.

So how do you view it? Do you think it’s the day that makes a difference? Do you feel different?

Bad Romance Made Awesome

Okay, so normally I would never put anything as acrid as Lady Gaga on my blog, but I found this truly amazing video of an a capella group doing Bad Romance. You gotta watch it. Epic. (If you’re reading this post in a feed reader or via email subscriptionk, the embedded videos below won’t show up, so click my title to come see it on the actual website.)

I thought two things after watching this: 1. This is Awesome, and 2. I love On The Rocks(For some reason, their website will only work for me in Firefox.)

For those who are lucky enough not to have seen or heard of Lady Gaga’s real video: (But honestly, I wouldn’t recommend it.)

I thought the a capella version was amazing, but I would like to hear your thoughts on it as well.
