Why You Should See The Dear Evan Hansen Show

If stuck deciding on a Broadway show to see, you should definitely take the time and choose to see the "Dear Evan Hansen" show. No, this is not an endorsed article and this show does not qualify as better or worse than any other show playing in New York City as all Broadway performances are an amazing feat and respectable performances.

I simply implore you to seek out this show for its moral and social understanding on society, mental illnesses, and technology today. If you have experienced social anxiety or any type of mental illness, this show could speak levels for you.

It begins with the world of a boy's struggle to cope with being the son of a single mother who needs to find a way to manage his social and anxiety skills. The rest of the show focuses on his struggle to make friends and find companionship through tough times with the power of social media (and of course, song!).

While the show may seem like another silly teenage struggle story, it's not. The dedication of the actors and actresses speaks levels on the personalization of their characters. The main actor playing Evan, Ben Platt, even attends two physical therapy sessions and two meetings a week to stretch his voice and practice with his vocal coach.

It may not be a show that displays super exciting colorful themes or a comedic holding, the "Dear Evan Hansen" show is a show that shows what it's like to live in the life of someone with anxiety and issues socializing in high school and give a voice to those who may not think they matter in the world. The show ends with a lesson for the audience about the power of social media and the way your words can impact those who hear you.

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.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
