10 Signs You're A Theatre Nerd

For those of us who are in love with the theatre world, there are certain things that you just know to be true whether you're a thespian or just a super fan of the arts.

1. Dance Numbers Happening Without Warning

Whether it's on the stage and even just doing simple everyday things, there are times where you can't help but break out the dancing moves and let yourself get carried away with the music.

2. Certain phrases send you off into singing certain Broadway tunes

You're having a normal conversation with friends when they unknowingly say a lyric from a musical score that makes you fangirl out of no where.

3. You know to never wish a performer good luck, always tell them to break a leg.

Telling an actor "good luck," will raise the superstition that they should only be told to "break a leg" in lieu of the common courtesy.

4. You just happen to know entire soundtracks to shows, NBD.

5. You know when you see the lights blinking during intermission you best get to your seats

Otherwise you run the risk of missing the second act, not to mention theatre etiquette.

6. You have the skills of the quick change down to a science.

7. You were aware of everything that was happening in Shakespeare (even the dirty jokes).

8. You know how many minutes there are in a year thanks to "Rent".

9. As well the extremely detailed life of Alexander Hamilton.

10. You can improv your way out of a situation when your mind has gone blank on your lines.

But most importantly you know the show must always go on!

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
