13 Signs You Were In Show Choir In High School
Kevin Chase

Show choir is very popular in the Midwest. Competition season is cutthroat for many high schools, but after graduation, show choir pretty much ceases to exist for many. If you were ever a part of show choir, you understand how it feels to part with such an important piece of your high school career. Here are 13 signs that you were a part of the cult they call show choir in high school:

1. You break out into song when you hear certain trigger words.

"Yeah, she had a terrible fall-."

"Hope when you take that jump, you don't fear the fall."

2. Sometimes you do choreo without realizing it.

It can get especially awkward when you're sitting in the dining hall.

3. When you need to, you can change in 15 seconds flat.

Those quick changes taught you a thing or two, like how to get pants on and off without removing your shoes.

4. When you see a stage, you start to drool.

You used to complain about the bright lights, but now you would do anything for them to shine on you again.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F18%2F635965402331711717-886303915_giphy%2520%2824%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=393&h=8091685281e7e4fe58c23b9c56b5d821cee8d84c6a74022fc5c179906ff26093&size=980x&c=3982689568 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F18%252F635965402331711717-886303915_giphy%252520%252824%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D393%26h%3D8091685281e7e4fe58c23b9c56b5d821cee8d84c6a74022fc5c179906ff26093%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3982689568%22%7D" expand=1]

5. Meeting someone from a rival show choir is OK because at least they share your love for show choir.

"Did you say 'show choir'?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F18%2F635965410793698286-2136406765_giphy%2520%2826%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=836&h=b4d5bcac99ef612f4ab36e7ec4e59c976b2d0b80d2bb04215439b3ec8b1a1e8c&size=980x&c=3722633894 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F18%252F635965410793698286-2136406765_giphy%252520%252826%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D836%26h%3Db4d5bcac99ef612f4ab36e7ec4e59c976b2d0b80d2bb04215439b3ec8b1a1e8c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3722633894%22%7D" expand=1]

6. But during competition season, things may get ugly.

We are no longer friends. Don't speak to me.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F18%2F635965403526374844-1436043791_giphy%2520%2825%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=519&h=54b5862aef12039c9d76da2191a83d1b5427f6d9786275b2372ff90ad5c12748&size=980x&c=2175301680 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F18%252F635965403526374844-1436043791_giphy%252520%252825%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D519%26h%3D54b5862aef12039c9d76da2191a83d1b5427f6d9786275b2372ff90ad5c12748%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2175301680%22%7D" expand=1]

7. You still find glitter in weird places.

It isn't logical, how am I still finding glitter in my bras? I didn't even wear this one on stage!

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F18%2F635965415262970560740179940_giphy%2520%2827%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=345&h=a98658ca37921757f0dc7f440ab09227af5bd0157f0a508f51595f99367a1766&size=980x&c=904446216 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F18%252F635965415262970560740179940_giphy%252520%252827%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D345%26h%3Da98658ca37921757f0dc7f440ab09227af5bd0157f0a508f51595f99367a1766%26size%3D980x%26c%3D904446216%22%7D" expand=1]

8. You have to explain it to people who didn't have a show choir in their school.

"No, it's not like 'Glee.'"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F18%2F635965434440116992678664247_giphy%2520%2835%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=197&h=f2fb9dead45aa378593ead1f30ac2121e2481af6ea729e882f12dd683dab2dbb&size=980x&c=2532963670 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F18%252F635965434440116992678664247_giphy%252520%252835%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D197%26h%3Df2fb9dead45aa378593ead1f30ac2121e2481af6ea729e882f12dd683dab2dbb%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2532963670%22%7D" expand=1]

9. When you see a show choir T-shirt, you can’t help but ask the wearer about it.

"Oh my gosh, you went to Johnston? That upset last year was crazy!"

10. You have your January-March weekend plans all set in September.

Obviously.

11. Xavier’s 2009 ballad.

Yeah. Enough said.

12. You text your high school friends constantly.

All they want to do is get ready for finals, but you can't give them a second of peace. If you can't be there, how else are you supposed to know what's happening?! You don't have the patience to wait for showchoir.com to be updated!

13. You’re sad about not being able to perform on stage, but realize how amazing it is to see what your alma mater has created.

Don't get me wrong, being on stage is an amazing feeling, but seeing all the hard work these high schoolers have put in is even more amazing.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out?

Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
