Confessions Of A Theatre Nerd
Theatre nerds

Being a theatre nerd is awesome because I have been one since I was in elementary. Almost everyday, us theatre people can breakout into show tunes such as musical theatre where ever we go! Some of these places are school, work, out with friends, in the car and etc. Sometimes I can quote a song and non-theatre nerds might not understand what we are saying but that is fine with me. If you ask a non-theatre person to name that song from a show it will take them a few minutes but people like me will be answering in about minute or less. Theatre people are the friendliest, fun and outgoing friends and are fun to be around. I enjoying being part of the theatre world because it is awesome. I have met so many people from different community theatres throughout the years from young to old. Being a theatre nerd is so much fun because you get to go see plays at community theatres or ones that are on tour that come to your city which is fun to go and see. I have seen so many shows over the years and I save the ticket stubs and the programs of the ones I have been in to the ones I have seen. It is always great to support all theatres out there!! There are many things to do when you are in the theatre world like being part behind the scenes, in front of the curtain, up in the light booth, ushering and many more. Here are some of the top things theatre people know that are true and great:

1. Theatre is a big family that cares about you that share a common interest like you.

2. When you are in theatre you can see as many shows and also get one free ticket to the season of shows that community theatre has lined up for.

3. Lights are an aspect of theatre that makes the actors look good on the stage with different aspects of colors.

4. Going to the stage door when a famous broadway show goes on tour to see if the actors come out and greet the audience members come and see their shows.

5. On a community/ high school/ college theatre level it is nice having friends and family come and see your shows that you are in because they all support in what you do in your spare time or on the side from school.

There are many more things that are part of being a theatre nerd but these are the top five that I could think of! Being part of the theatre world is awesome and I enjoy every part of it! If you ever get a chance to perform in any type of theatre you should so you can have the experience as well. I had some great directors over the years and I have taken their direction very well in the aspects of blocking and etc.

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.

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.
