As I've been thinking about the word Journey, I have to admit that my mind has wandered back to an evening in college. My friends and I were Sophomores, living in the dorms, and the group of eight included my best friend from high school, and a pair of best friends that we'd met in our Freshman year. The four of us (we called ourselves "The Unknown Gauchos") had been set on getting into one of the on-campus suites for our Sophomore year, and we'd found four more girls to join us.
In those first few months, the eight of us hung out a lot. We got to know each other. We had what we called "All Suite Blow-outs" which usually involved watching a movie, singing songs, and often taping ridiculous movies with Erica's camcorder.
One night we decided to go serenade some boys. We took our boom box, snuck outside their room, and blasted Journey's "Faithfully" below their window. We sang along, loud, off key, totally sober that night. It still stands out in my mind's eye like a scene from a movie; partly Say Anything, partly something all together unique. (It may be this memory alone that makes me love how Glee effortlessly weaves the 80s, singing, and everyday life.)
