Before Kurt tells his father that he is gay, Burt catches him dancing to single ladies with two classmates. Burt was confused by it in the beginning, but years later Burt performs that exact routine for Kurt’s graduation gift. If that doesn’t show growth, I’m not sure what does.

Burt Hummel is easily one of the best TV dads out there.At first he was not sure how to adapt to the cards he was dealt, but instead of trying to change Kurt and his life, he chose to change himself for the better.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing.
