Shawn Mendes is the music I listen to at 3 AM when I am doing homework. That’s just it. I learned all of his music freshman and second year of college while I was staring at the white emptiness of a Word Document. I like to think that if I can listen to entire albums … More Shawn Mendes Concert Psychoanalysis
If your heart was not pounding at 9:59 am on May 5th, 2017, you were not trying to buy Harry Styles tickets. And you were probably also not sitting at a campus cafe trying to regulate your breathing after you sprinted there 20 minutes after you woke up so that you would be on time … More I Love Harry Styles: A History
I bought my ticket to the filmed version of Newsies the day after tickets were available. After a disappointing summer of trying to get my parents to take me to Los Angeles to see Newsies at the Pantages, I knew that this was the universe giving me a second chance. I had learned about Newsies through my college suitemate. Her childhood … More Newsies: The Filmed Musical
Would you light my candle? I have bee a Renthead since birth. Okay, not birth, but since like second grade. When I was really young, I took piano lessons at the University of New Mexico in the music building, where Popejoy Hall is. Some Broadway tours stop there (Newsies stopped there this past summer and … More Rent
My last show of 2016 was Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King and I featuring the incredibly talented Laura Michelle Kelly and Jose Llana. There are two movie versions of The King and I. There is the live action one with Deborah Kerr and Yul Brynner from 1956, and there is the animated one from 1999, which … More The King and I!
Post finals, I started binge-watching Glee because I was feeling Darren Criss-deprived after seeing him in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, but now it’s December 17th 2016 and here I am at 2 am in the middle of winter break, crying over Rachel Berry’s Broadway debut and the life debut of Mr. Schuester’s child. I resumed watching … More My Return to Glee
In March 2017, Broadway will be taken over by the most adorable, humble, most cutest person ever, Amélie Poulain (and of course her friends at the Café des 2 Moulins!). I had the privilege of seeing Phillipa Soo, Adam Chanler-Berat and the cast of Amélie at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles, California on December 6th 2016. I bought … More Amélie!
I am the biggest Hamilton fan that I know, but even I didn’t know about “Congratulations,” one of the cut songs. My friend made me listen to it on YouTube a couple days ago and she was shocked that I had never heard it before. I have heard the entire “Sit Down John” song, but I had never heard … More Angelica Schuyler Is The Best Thing In Our Lives
College freshmen have probably been packed and ready to go back to school/begin college for three months. That was me last year. This year, I’m taking it slow. (And also, nothing is fitting in my storage boxes at the moment.) I know what is coming and I’m not going to let my anxiety and fear get … More Back to School Jitters
I love Disneyland, but I don’t have an Annual Pass and I don’t get to go often. Instead, I live vicariously through Disneyland blogs and Instagram posts. Because I have fallen in love with the scenery of Disneyland more than the physical experience of Hyperspace Mountain and the Haunted Mansion, I have my very own … More The Disneyland To-Do List For People Who Don’t Like Rides
