'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' Theatre Experience

Since I was a tween, I had been dying to view "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." It had been a name that I had heard thrown around, especially surrounding Halloween. As someone who grew up renting movies every weekend, it is easy to assume it was added to my watchlist early on.

It wasn't until my local theatre had midnight screenings of the flick that I realized what Rocky Horror truly was. Rocky Horror wasn't a measly movie, it was an experience. Of course, as a tween this was something that intrigued me. I was probably only 13 when this was going on, so my parents weren't really all for the idea of me seeing such a movie. However, a couple years later I got my sneaky hands on a copy.

I am thinking I was about 15 when I first watched Rocky Horror. One of my best friends and I instantly became obsessed. You would find us doing the "Time Warp" again and again and again. I kept saying one day I was going to go as Magenta or Columbia for Halloween. Years went by and I still hadn't been to the theatre to see this fabulous production.

Until now. This year, at 21 years of age, I took the plunge. It was a last minute decision, so I didn't go dressed as Magenta or Columbia. However, there was enough lingerie in that theatre to make me feel as if I was backstage at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

You would think over the years I would have learned when to throw items and yell certain things, but it was an entirely new experience. Think about it, I had been secretly watching the movie with one or two of my friends. I knew certain phrases to yell based on my findings via Google (think when the names "Janet" and "Brad" are said), but other than that I was a legitimate virgin. It was absolute magic.

I would recommend going to see "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" in a theatre to anyone that doesn't take themselves too seriously and enjoys having a good time. If you're lucky like me, you can even find a place that will include the prop bag in the ticket sales. I waited too long. Dr. Frank-N-Furter could see me in the back row shivering with antici…pation.

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.

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.
