Cory Monteith 1 Year Anniversary

Readers, we meet once again! As some of you may be aware, today officially marks the one year anniversary of the day amazingly awesome 'Glee' star Cory Monteith tragically passed away. For hardcore Gleeks like me around the world, July 13th (or 14th Australian time) 2013 was seriously one of the worst days ever. Personally, 365 days later, I still can't believe it. Firm in my denial, I'm quite happy to believe in the conspiracy theory I created, which basically suggests that Cory was receiving death threats from a bunch of people who also auditioned for the role of Finn, and as a part of the witness protection program, he was forced to fake his own death and hide out under a pseudonym in Iowa. Although I wholeheartedly believe that to be true for the sake of my mental health, there's a small, sane part of me that realises that my theory is absurd, hence my blog post today. Of course, this is a super depressing day for Cory fans everywhere, but amidst the sad commemorations, how about we just remember some of the Canadian's best moments. Sound good? That's what I thought.

Let's take a stroll down memory lane, shall we?

Turns out, Cory Monteith was always striving to be a master of all languages. Don't believe me? Remember when he tried to sing along in Spanish during 'The Spanish Teacher'? Because I do.

But his attempts at mastering EspaƱol didn't stop there.

And then of course there was that time he tried to speak French, but ended up speaking gibberish that nobody understood.

I guess he finally realised that he couldn't speak other random languages, so just decided to make up bits of his own. Low and behold, his very own Gretchen Wiener moment.

It's only fitting that his very own catch phrase revolved around food. Although he had an all-round obsession with all that is edible, he had his favourites. Namely, his deep, deep chicken love.

As with all food enthusaists, along with his favourites are his least favourites.

Is this one of his only words of wisdom via Twitter? Most definitely not. Cory was always a very avid tweeter.

Even when he wasn't verified.

Fan interaction just so happened to be one of his strong points.

So much so that they ended up attacking him on the Ellen show.

Being a likeable guy and all, you'd think he could at least get one high five during the Glee concert tours. But did he? No.

Maybe it's because this tends to happen when he high fives people.

You'd think that maybe to make up for his lack of coordination he'd be good at lifting things, however this doesn't seem to be the case. Remember when he dropped Lea during the Rocky Horror filming? Because she does.

That walk though. I'd think I'd forgive him just for the awesomeness of this.

At least he has his bromance with Chord Overstreet.

Which even extended to doing impressions of him.

And naturally, having half naked pictures of Chord on his phone.

One thing that I always admired about him was his blissful ignorance when it comes to 'Twilight'. Sure, it wasn't full blown hatred like me, but at least he didn't care enough to know anything about it.

Plus, he really seems to have mastered many trades. He even had a little stint as a day care bus driver for a day. Sure, he crashed it and tried to bribe the kids with ice-cream, but still, solid effort.

He luckily found his calling for acting before he killed any children. Once he became comfortable with his acting career, he just started chucking in some improvised throwaway lines, which has now become classic, Finn Hudson dialogue.

I think it's fair to say another one of his callings was art.

Or cinematography.

Or dancing.

It's also great that Cory's a fellow nerd. Seriously, he spent his childhood reading through encyclopaedias.

Overall, Cory Monteith was a pretty stand up guy. He was honest . . .

never afraid to speak his mind . . .

and always asks the tough questions.

That's now officially the end of my anniversary post. I hope I managed to make an ordinarily awful day just a little bit more enjoyable for all you Gleeks out there. Don't stop believing! Til' next time . . .
