My First Time At The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Madness...takes its toll

My First Time At The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Until two months ago, the only thing I knew of Rocky Horror was the GLEE special they did. But when my boyfriend was cast as Rocky in the university's production, I quickly understood the William Schuester version was, somehow, PG. After weeks of hearing about rehearsals, I thought I would know what I was walking into. But nothing can prepare you for the event that is "Rocky Horror."

The show starts before you even leave your room, as the audience typically all dresses up. Some people here and there dress up as main characters, but largely the attire is simply gothic slutty. Lots of black, red, lace, leather, and, of course, the classic red lip. Everyone dresses all out, and honestly, walking in and seeing everyone's fun costumes was one of my favorite parts.

The lines for "Rocky" are notoriously long at my school, with people lining up far before doors open. Getting there early has its perks besides a shorter wait outdoors, however. Once inside you can mingle with the characters during "Sex Museum," and then in the last half hour before the show they play the Virgin Games. If it is your first time at "Rocky," they will draw a red "V" on your forehead in lipstick, and you are eligible to go on stage and "compete." When I went, they played three games: change clothes with your partner, lick a cream pie between someone's thighs, and best orgasm, all of which I'll let you figure out.

Once the show finally begins, after the Rocky Pledge, the actors came out. Everyone was phenomenal, and the energy was electric. I was in the back so it was difficult to see, not to mention the show was performed in a bar, so it could be difficult to hear. I can honestly say that I still have no idea what the plot was, but I can tell you it was raunchy and wild.

It was so good, in fact, I went back the next night. The energy was outstanding, as were the performers, and everyone was so kind. It is a wild experience, it is an out-there experience, and it is a must-go at least once in your life experience. If you have the chance, experience the madness and come up to the lab.

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.
