I’m still incredibly excited for all of the new musicals premiering this season, but there are some classic musicals that I think are long overdue for Broadway revivals. Growing up, we watched a lot of the popular, traditional movie musicals – Rodgers & Hammerstein, Disney live action – that really solidify your view of Broadway as a flashy song-and-dance place no matter how much you enjoy newer and more experimental musicals.
The last few weeks have been pretty crazy. I produced weekly news packages on my own for class, kept up on freelancing and intern duties, and – a moment I’m pretty darn proud of – interviewed Imposters star Rob Heaps for Her Campus (and have another exciting potential interview in the works!).
After keeping busy quite consistently, my “spring” break this week was very welcomed and needed. Aside from applying to “real world” jobs, I don’t have much going on this week, so I’ve found the time to get obsessed with some new things!

Sanne, one of my favorite YouTubers, made a video over the summer about which female book characters she’d pick for her own “bookish girl squad.” She came up with certain characteristics to follow when picking girls, which I decided to list below and use to build my own bookish squad!
Honestly, the idea behind squads kind of intimidates me (blame Taylor Swift’s ever-growing posse), but because imagining book characters were real is the best thing ever, I had no issue putting together this fun group!
Someone who will force you to go out when you want to stay in – Louisa Clark (Me Before You, by Jojo Moyes)
I seriously need a friend like this, but anyone who tries can never manage to break my very tough aversion to the “going out” scene. Lou would be the ideal person for the job because, as seen with persuading Will to do things, she can make things happen when she really wants them to. She’ll go to the ends of the earth to make sure you’re having a good time, even if it creates some awkward moments at the horse races, as the book shows.
