A year ago today I saw Newsies- my first Broadway show- and my life was basically changed. It made me fall in love with theatre, which in turn helped me discover so much more about myself and the world around me. This show is so special to me for so many reasons, and I’ll try my best to never forget that night I first sat in a Broadway theatre. From the opening number to the curtain call to the stage door- it was one of the best experiences of my life. And it’s all I’ve thought about since. I want to do that for people. I want to create something on that stage that makes people feel, that makes them understand. Newsies has been one of the biggest inspirations for me, and I’ll always love it for that. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go listen to the entire album and cry because IT’S BEEN ONE WHOLE FREAKIN YEAR SINCE I’VE BEEN TO NYC

You know you’ve been watching too many Newsie videos when you start to talk like them.
Like if I had a dollar for everytime I’ve said, “You must be joking” in the past 24 hours….

You guys. I just got THE sweetest card in the mail from Laurie Veldheer. Like, she is THE BEST. She also sent me a trading card that was made by a fansie! (If that’s you- awesome job! haha)
I wish she had a twitter so I could thank her. :(
I went all around town looking for Newsies on DVD or Blu-Ray.
The workers everywhere I went had no idea what I was talking about, and couldn’t find it in their stores.
Andrew and Jeremy Twitter War!
fighting over who gets the most followers…
Sorry Jeremy, but I’m Team AKB.
So I was waiting in the car for my mom to come, and Seize the Day came on. I had listened to about half of the song when she came and got in.
She looked at me and said, “You do realize you’re gonna have to start the song over for me, right?”
My mom loves Newsies. *sniffles* I’M SO PROUD!
Happy anniversary of the Newsie Strike!
Who would’ve known it would be a musical now…
Now is the time to Seize the Day!
