Hi hello!

I’m Jess :) I'm 19, and welcome to my corner of the internet.

I have a face and sometimes I post photos that can be found if you click here!

Blackcurrant capri suns, musicals and acapella music are the way to my heart.
I like McFly, Glee, The Book of Mormon, Pentatonix and Supernatural stupid amounts & Tom Fletcher and Darren Criss are my heroes.
I'm currently living in London studying creative writing and media studies at Kingston University.

If you ever need anyone to talk to, I am always here. Remember, you’re not alone.


Thanks for joining me in this wierd and wonderful place, be sure to say hi!


Loser(s) like me!

And here we have the video that I am most proud of, aside from human.

The Borderline, London.

All I ever wanted from life was to see this live, so now my life is complete~

Darren Criss - Human @The Borderline Matinee 05/07/2011

This is my last video and it’s my favourite.  I used no zoom.  I was three feet from this perfect, perfect man.

Bonus of me and Beci freaking out.  You can hear her saying ‘Oh my god we’re so fucking close’  and then a bit of giggling.

Hands down this was the most amazing experience I’ve ever had in my life.  I idolise Darren so much and the closest I’ve ever been to his voice is on a large scale.

On his EP, which thousands of people have; on TV, that millions of people watch; on the Glee tour, which, on my date alone, had 20 000 others.  It’s always something so huge that you share with thousands or millions of others, which is not a bad thing at all.  I’m grateful that he shares his voice with the world.

BUT, hearing this was something entirely different.  There were 200 people packed into that tiny room.  And they were the only ones that ever experienced those moments that I did.  They can’t be replayed like a CD or relived like on a TV show.  They happened and now they are gone.  You can play the videos and listen to the music and look at the pictures, but NOTHING compares to the feeling of awe and the chills that I got when I was right there in the moment.

I was three feet from him in all his glory.  I got to be that close to the man I idolise more than anyone else on this planet, and hear him with no microphones or backing tracks or other singers.

Just him and a guitar.

And that is why standing there with all the new friends I made yesterday, listening to the man who brought us together in such an intimate setting is something that I will never forget as long as I live.

I’m actually sat here sobbing reading this.

This was one of those moments in life where you sit and you think to yourself “wow. Life is pretty amazing sometimes”
I can’t really add much more onto this post as Sophie has said everything that I am thinking, other than I can not think of anyone else that I would have rather have spent that gig with. some people I was with I have been best friends with for years, and others I had just met on that day. But they all made that gig so special and so incredible, and I will never forget that day because of them. & I hope that we all stay friends for a long time.
Thank you, guys. <3

Darren Criss - Not Alone @ The Borderline Matinee 05/07/2011

I would apologise for me, Jessica and Beci sobbing loudly behind the camera but I’m not gonna do that because you probably would to if he was that beautiful and singing that so close in front of your face.  :D

I will however apologise for 2:45 and the random Darren disappearing from the frame.  My tears had mixed with eye makeup and it was burning really badly, and Beci was clutching my left hand so I used my camera hand  ^_^

Yeah, I’d say that I apologize but I genuinely don’t.
Probably one of the most emotional and intense moments of my life.



You need to stop.

You need to stop.



Not Alone.
At The Borderline, London.

I only recorded a small bit of this because I was crying my heart out/hugging maaria beci and sophie/generally dying over the fact that darren was there so yeah~
I don’t think I can begin to explain how much this song means to me.

Darren Criss - SAMI - The Borderline matinee 05/07/2011

Filmed by me for Sam because as soon as he said what the song was Beci shouted ‘YOU HAVE TO FILM THIS FOR SAM’.  So I did.

So here you go  ^_^

Oh by the way, I have no idea who all the loud singing was, we were all packed so tightly.  But I know it can’t have been me since I don’t even know all the lyrics and it can’t have been Beci because I’m pretty sure she was crying.

Forever reblogging all of Sophie’s videos because I was with her and she took better videos than me~

Trust me, you will NOT say that once you see Teenage Dream.  You, me, Beci and Beth just sobbing and snivelling the whole time.  It’s horrific.  And I had to take the camera off him because I needed the hand to wipe my tears.  They were literally burning my eyes XD

The recording I have of jealousy, oh my god seriously its the funniest thing EVER

its just me, you, maaria and beci going OH MY GOD, FUCKING HELL, YOU NEED TO STOP, IS HE HAVING SEX WITH THE MIC?, THIS IS BASICALLY PORN etc etc

Darren Criss performing Beauty at the Borderline Matinee - 05/07/2011

jdfkgjdfkghdfkjh I am so glad that you filmed this, Sophie :3

I heard this song in a completely different light last night, & I know its cliche but this performance was one of the most beautiful things i’ve seen.



My video of Human.
He sung this without any form of PA system. Just DC and his guitar. I don’t think I’ll ever forget this moment. <3
