8 Signs That You Are Obsessed With Broadway

Although I am not a talented singer, dancer, actor or artist, growing up, going to see a Broadway show was my absolute favorite thing to do. The bright changing lights, vibrant creative costumes, and loud music creates an excitement that you cannot help but be pulled into. When intermission hits, you may have even forgot that you were in the theater watching a show, and you awake from the trance with chills and awe. The details, talent and energy that goes into making a Broadway production truly blows me away every time I am lucky enough to go see one. Broadway is different from my everyday pop, rap, and rave music but it’s still my favorite genre. If you are secretly as nerdy as I am when it comes to Broadway, there is a good chance you can relate to these typical scenarios.

1. You listen to Hamilton on repeat everyday while walking to class, driving, and on all traveling occasions.

Some of the songs are so intense, that you occasionally feel you are right in the middle of the American revolution. I have had many experiences where I was caught off guard by someone waving to me on the street because I had headphones in blasting some Hamilton, almost in tears, adrenaline pulsing.

2. You’ve figured out that listening to songs from "Le Mis" while working out is key.

Nothing says finish that mile strong like a lead up to the French Revolution.

3. Listening to "Legally Blonde" before going out is a must.

There’s something about belting out “Oh My God You Guys” that puts you in a good mood every single time.

4. Fluctuating the volume, while secretly listening to Fiddler On The Roof because although the music is amazing, you don’t want the people walking or sitting close to you to accidentally overhear and give you one super weird look.

5. Not being able to stop talking about Hamilton to anyone and everyone who has seen, listened to, or showed even the slightest bit of interest in the show.

The conversations could go on for hours. #Non-stop

6. Daydreaming about what it would be like if you actually had a good voice and the farthest possibility of starring in a Broadway show.

If you haven’t pretended you were Elphaba, Glinda, Elle, Angelica, Jefferson, Simba, Tzeitel, Eponine, Elder Cunningham, Evan Hansen, or Ariana Grande in 13, you are probably lying to yourself.

7. Secretly waiting for and loving the Tony’s way more than all other award shows.

Come on, live performances from the best of Broadway plus Neil Patrick Harris, it doesn’t get better than that.

8. Reserving a large duration of road trip time to listen to an entire show’s soundtrack in order to fully re-enjoy the experience.

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.
