11 Thoughts You Have From Theatre

You love it, you hate it, it will always have your heart.

11 Thoughts You Have From Theatre

Putting on a show is exciting, stressful, annoying, fun and yet all together amazing. There are mornings you wake up and wonder what made you decide to go through this process again, but the end of the performance makes you realize why it was all worth it. These are the 11 emotions I felt when going through the whole process of making a show, come alive.

1. Auditions, will I get it?

Auditions are the most nerve-wracking part of it all. Having to sit and wait while everyone goes in and comes out with the same "I blew it" look on their face...not always the best feeling in the world.

2. Signing on for the show, signing out of your life.

Although you just made the exciting commitment to be apart of something so big, you also just realized that it may be the end of what you called your social life. You win some, you lose some...right?

3. The fear of running late.

No one wants to be that person that holds up the entire rehearsal, nor do you wanna be known as the diva who believes nothing starts until you're there.

4. The dread of being called out during notes.

"I know I messed up that entire last line...but no one said you had to point it out to everyone else!"

5. FINALLY Nailing that dance you never thought you'd get.

There is no high quite like the one you have on opening night, waiting backstage as you hear the steady buzz of everyone getting settled into their seats. There is nothing quite like it.

8. Praying the Audience will be good.

There is nothing worse than a full house...full of dead individuals. Like seriously? My dog is more interactive!

9. Singing your song for the last time.

Own this, give it all you got.

10. The Final Bow

This is it, the characters you have created, the story you have brought to life? It's officially a part of the past. Forever cherished.

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.
