A Cappella is A Ca-Mazing

12 Things All A Cappella Kids Know To Be True

In the world of a cappella, there are several universal truths that apply to all a ca-kids and all groups. Despite our differences, we all appreciate these truths after we sign up for a cappella.

1. Performance anxiety is very real

When you stand in front of a group of fifteen people and have to sing for them while they take notes and look at you with completely straight faces, no matter who you are or how well you can sing, your heart will be in your throat.

2. But being a part of the group can be a real confidence booster

Once you get used to the idea of performing in public, everything seems a bit easier.

3. When you welcome newbies, everyone celebrates

The party scene in “Pitch Perfect” is legit. Once all the a cappella groups on campus have accepted their new recruits for the year, everyone gets together for a massive party. Newbies are warmly welcomed into the big, crazy, musical family that is a cappella.

4. No one will judge you for anything

Because chances are, they’ve seen/done weirder shit…

5. Inner-group relationships are very real…

And they’re dramatic AF.

Wether it’s two kids from one group dating each other, or two kids from different groups dating each other, there is a very high likelihood of a ca-babies.

6. There will always be one group that you love to hate…

7. And one that you hate to love.

8. Riff-offs happen

And they’re a damn good time.

9. Every group has a sick beatboxer

And when they get going, everyone loses their damn minds.

10. Choreo will kick your ass

Unfortunately, there’s no way around it.

11. Everything accidentally becomes beautiful

When everyone starts singing impromptu harmonies, and you hit that sweet spot where the blend is just right, the sound you make as a group is the most magical thing in the world.

12. A Cappella = Family

Even though you drive each other crazy, you’re dysfunctional and don’t know what you’re doing half the time, you will find your greatest friends through a cappella. Different groups have different dynamics, but one thing is universally true: your a cappella group is your family, and family sticks together.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
