12 Things Every Person Who Has Gone Through Tech Week Can Relate To

It's hectic but worth it.


Tech week: one of the hardest weeks you'll go through. I mean, why else do you think they refer to it as hell week? It may be one of the hardest weeks you'll go through, but I promise it's worth it in the end. But tech week is something us music kids can all understand. Here are 12 things that every person who has gone through tech week can relate to.

1. The whole cast and crew freaking out over the littlest things

Tech week is very crucial and everything needs to practically be perfect so when something isn't it's like the world is crashing down.

2. Never sleeping

Be prepared for little to no time to sleep.

3. Not being able to eat while in your costume for your 6 plus hour rehearsals

The hunger is real.

4. Being afraid of getting sick after one person gets sick

When one person gets sick, it risks every person getting sick.

5. Long nights

Having long rehearsals is bad, but having to come home to mounds of homework and tests to study for calls for longer nights than you'd rather have.

6. Skin breakout

After all of that stage makeup, this is bound to happen.

7. Drinking lots of tea and being on vocal rest

Keeping your voice healthy is a key factor when you're in a show. So when you're constantly drinking tea and not talking, people may give you strange looks, but your voice will be better off.

8. Emotional breakdowns

Eventually everything will get to you and you'll just breakdown maybe once...or twice.

9. Pestering every person you know to come see your show

Because if you're going to do all of this work why wouldn't you want people to come see it? Having a packed house is one of the best feelings.

10. Tech week is your excuse for everything.

But it really is a good excuse. It won't work for everything but hey tech week is no walk in the park.

11. The feeling of wanting it all to be over with

After having rehearsals everyday and doing the same thing over and over, you're just ready for it to be done.

12. But in reality you're actually really upset when its over.

When it all comes to an end, you look back at it all and realize how much you've loved it and don't want it to be over.

Tech week is one of the hardest weeks you'll go through and you always dread it. But at the end of the day, you know you love it.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
