Once On This Island

This show is the greatest!

Once On This Island

If it was not obvious at this point, I love Broadway shows. Although I don't go as often as I would like, the days I do go are easily my favorite. I love spending the day in the city, be it with my family or friends, grab some dinner at a restaurant and spend the evening watching insanely talented people sing their hearts out. Nothing can top the feeling of immersing yourself in the show and getting lost in the tale.

I can see why Once on This Island won best Musical Revival at the Tony's. From the moment it started until the moment it ended, I was completely captivated. The entire theater was decorated and artfully integrated into the show itself. Characters would run up and down the stairs, sing to audience members and build off their reactions. It was a wonderful in-the-round experience that I have fallen in love with.

The entire cast are total triple threats with amazing dance and musical numbers with touching acting and dialogue in-between. They were superb and wonderful to meet and talk to after the show.

It was the perfect mix of everything you would want a great Broadway show to be and more. The music was rhythmic and hypnotic and relayed the story beautifully.

The characters were real and easy to relate to; their relationships and their obstacles were relayed in a touching way and kept your attention for every moment. The show was the perfect blend of comedy, drama and adventure.

The Gods' characters made the story that much more interesting and provided excellent dialogue and musical numbers to an already wonderful show.

One of the many points the showed touch upon was the human heart and although people may come from different backgrounds or walks of life with different experiences, when you boil it down at the end of the day, we're all just human. That message was articulated beautifully and the show has definitely left an impact that I will carry with me as I go through life.

I think everyone could learn a thing or two from this show and its messages. Despite the obstacles that the character's faced they faced it with optimism and positive which was really inspiration and put things into perspective as far as I was concerned.

Honestly, I did not know much about this show before watching it. But last Thanksgiving, I watched them perform at the parade and fell in love. I knew at that moment that I had to see this show no matter what.

I was not disappointed at all, it was everything I expected it to be and more. Even two days later, I've been playing it over in my mind and would definitely go see it again. I could not stop myself from going home and telling my parents everything that happened during the show as well as my interactions with the cast in an effort to get them to want to go and maybe take with them so I can see it again (hint hint, Mom and Dad).

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

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.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
