6 Reasons We'll Never Forget Cory Monteith

When Cory Monteith died in 2013, “Glee” fans were devastated. Monteith was about to get married to his on and off screen girlfriend, Lea Michele, and he was about to start filming season five of “Glee.” Three years later, Monteith’s influence and character continue to impact fans everywhere. Here’s why he will never be forgotten.

1. He was kind to everyone.

Cory Monteith was an extremely kind person both on and off screen. On screen, he played Finn in “Glee.” Finn was a quarterback on the football team, but he wasn't a typical jock who picked on other people. Finn stood up for the outcasts even if his teammates made fun of him because of it. Off screen, he was kind to everyone. He was always willing to lend a hand or give advice to people when they needed it.

2. He was goofy.

Unlike many celebrities, Cory Monteith wasn't hellbent on having a perfect image. Monteith accepted his flaws and he even laughed about them. He wasn't afraid to call himself awkward or too tall. He even admitted that he was a bad dancer. However, that never stopped him from dancing.

3. He was great at giving advice.

Cory Monteith always knew the right thing to say. He was wise when it came to life lessons. He knew that the key to life was being kind and appreciating what you have. Monteith was aware that life is short and it shouldn't be taken for granted.

4. He was smart in his own way.

Being smart doesn't mean being perfectly accurate. People can be smart in their own ways and that was the case with Cory Monteith.

5. He was a great role model.

Everyone has their demons. Even with his, Cory was a great role model. On screen, his character Finn showed that it's not OK to bully other people, and that there is no real definition of cool. Finn proved that it's better to be who you really are rather than trying to be someone that you're not. He showed that being yourself is the key to happiness.

6. He truly loved his fans.

Cory Monteith really cared by bout his fans. He never said no to taking a picture with a fan or signing an autograph for them. He always made it a priority to show his fans how much he appreciated and loved them.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
