Your non-theatre friends may not understand the importance of the role you just got. Show them this and add some jazz hands.

4. When someone thinks they're going to get your role.

Sometimes you just can't make it to Broadway in time or maybe it was over before you were even born. Either way there's a hole in your heart from what you know would have been your favorite musical. *cough cough* The Little Mermaid on Broadway *cough cough*

17. Putting on your costume.

Thank you, costume mistress.

18. Eating before getting into costume.

It may only be an hour and a half run, but that is an hour and a half I am not allowed to eat.

19. Eating in your costume anyways.

NOBODY IN ALL OF OZ! NO COSTUME MISTRESS THAT IS OR WAS. IS EVER GONNA TAKE MY FOOOOOOOODDD!

20. Going through the costume closet.

Someday that one skirt will end up in my personal closet.

21. The feels after notes.

23. Meeting other musical theatre nerds

Brethren!

24. When someone says they're a musical theatre nerd, but Wicked is the only musical they know.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F25%2F635893603959446506808519112_giphy.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=863&h=4b4ab8d07a595e913bb391213907e143a94b1085c12ea6793304a8ed8f3fd679&size=980x&c=2401656688 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F25%252F635893603959446506808519112_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D863%26h%3D4b4ab8d07a595e913bb391213907e143a94b1085c12ea6793304a8ed8f3fd679%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2401656688%22%7D" expand=1]

Please leave.

25. Singing in the car with musical theatre friends.

26. That one musical song that makes you sob.

For me, it's "For Good" from Wicked. (Because I knew Mama Felicia and I have been changed for good.) But every musical theatre nerd has that one song that tugs on your heart.

27. This sequence featuring King sums up life as a musical theater nerd.

Whether they're moving on to another show, theater, or school it can be heartbreaking to say goodbye to members of your theater family.

29. The joy of a successful show

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

5736
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.
