28 Thoughts A Theatre Nerd Has At A Basketball Game

I am a self-proclaimed theatre nerd with zero athletic talent. I recently went to a men’s basketball game. While there, I realized I know next to nothing about sports. In between asking probably a thousand questions about how basketball works, these are some of thoughts I had in my show-tune-singing head.

1. Oh, my gosh, they’re so tall.

No wonder they chose this sport.

2. Love their costumes. So sporty spice.

3. Wow, they’re also so attractive.

Why have I never watched sports before?The hot people all flock to the court.

4. Why do they all use those Gatorade water bottles?

Are regular water bottles not good enough?

5. I hope they use those rip-off sweat pants.

I want a pair for Christmas.They’re good enough for Magic Mike, they should be good enough for this team.

6. Wow -- this is exactly like “High School Musical.”

7. When will they break out into song?


9. Yay! They scored a basket, woooooooo!

Oops -- that was the other team. Awkward.

10. I guess this is fun.

11. I’m just watching them run back and forth.

Everyone is clapping and I’m so confused.

12. I want to be a referee.

With great whistles, comes great responsibility.

13. And black and white is such a classy combo.

But that seems to involve a lot of running. And I only run when I’m being chased.

14. Yes! Halfway done! Intermission time...

Halftime. That’s totally what I meant.

15. Wow, those cheerleaders are surprisingly strong.

I could definitely never throw a human in the air.Look how high she just flew!

16. Those hurkies, though.

And I can’t even touch my toes.I need to get back to the gym.

17. Half time’s over.

Back to running around.

18. Where’d they come from?

19. Do you think they’d let me see backstage?

It’s called a locker room. Of course.

20. Why are there people in suits?

A little formal for sports. But, I guess coaches are important.

21. This is a long game.

22. OK, now I’m into it.

23. Four seconds left.

I’ve never been so nervous.

24. Score. They won.

25. Why is everyone saying we won?

26. You watched the game, you didn’t help them.

27. That was surprisingly fun.

28. I still like Broadway better.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
