Tech Week As Told By 'New Girl,' 'Friends' and HIMYM

Tech Week, the one thing in life you can't predict.

Tech Week, the week before the opening of a theater production, is one of the most stressful weeks a thespian will face. When "Hell Week" has you down and you need a laugh, this might be the pick-me-up to help you push through. Stay strong and break a leg.

1. Tech Week Starts on Sunday, so Saturday is a very important, vital day.

It is completely necessary to catch up on as much sleep as possible because it is inevitable that you will get two hours a night.

2. You have to test out and finalize makeup styles.

Without test runs, you might as well look like a clown.

3. Your choreographer gets upset when you can't get every move perfect.

I mean, they have the right to—you've only been practicing for months.

4. Reviewing videos of your performance scares you.

We all dread the moment when you see the one missed step or hear the one note off key.

5. There is always the one person that takes their role a little too seriously.

You try to avoid them but you also admire their dedication.

6. Everyone knows the script of the show like the back of their hand.

Running lines becomes repetitive and annoying. There's always that one person who knows everyone's lines and is always correcting everyone.

7. The entire cast seems to be delirious due to the lack of sleep.

Eventually, everyone is on their fourth wave of energy.

8. Everyone seems to forget his blocking the night before the opening night.

Having to remember every dance move, words for songs, line and movement get pretty confusing. Your brain turns off after a while.

9. There is an excessive amount of food eaten.

Not only do you go through tons and tons of Powerade and Goldfish but every meal is a true blessing.

10. There's that awkward stage kiss that everyone regrets seeing.

You're sure that the whole illusion of the show will be killed because of that single kiss.

11. Bowing is your one chance to take a breath.

You have the instant relief of the show being over but the immediate stress of the next show.

12. When it's all over, you hide the fact that you're completely upset.

But everyone knows that you aren't fine for the simple reason that they're going through the same thing.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
