If you haven't heard of "Hamilton," then you've probably been living under a rock for the last few months because it has become one of the biggest and most popular musicals in the country. For good reason, too. The music is amazing, the acting is incredible, and the fact that Lin- Manuel Miranda made the life of Alexander Hamilton interesting to thousands of people across the world is extraordinary. Even if you can't watch the musical, just listen to the soundtrack and you'll fall in love.

Recently, I have started to listen to music a lot more while I'm studying; I've found that it helps keep me motivated and focused, and I have taken a lot fewer study breaks because of it.

Enjoy!
