15 Ways You've Shown Your "Hamilton" Obsession

There's nothing in the world quite like "Hamilton," and we've all been listening "Non-Stop" for months now.

15 Ways You've Shown Your "Hamilton" Obsession

"Hamilton" has been my most recent and also my most zealous obsession over the past few weeks. Every time any of my friends sees "Hamilton" pop up on their Facebook feed, they will undoubtedly tag me in the post and just fuel my obsession even more. There are a million reasons "Hamilton" is the best Broadway musical this year, and it's definitely for more reasons than because this original score is so great, but hey, it's nothing to complain about, so I'll just keep playing the "Hamilton" soundtrack all day and night.

1. First things first, you know are obsessed because you have got this soundtrack on "Non-Stop," and yes, that's a reference to one of the most beautiful songs to close an act, ever. I only say this because "Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story" has way too many feelings to want to reference more than once in this article – I don’t want you all crying on your keyboards.

2. "I Am Not Throwing Away My Shot" is your new mantra to get you through absolutely everything

3. You have decided who is Burr and who is Hamilton when singing "Your Obedient Servant."

4. You have definitely looked online for Hamilton products just to showcase your new favorite musical.

5. You might be more interested in historical politics now than you ever were during your AP US History class.

6. You have a favorite song that someone in your life is so tired of hearing you belt at the top of your lungs for hours on end. For me, that song is "Satisfied and Burn." And yes, I'm going to keep singing.

7. Lin-Manuel Miranda is literally perfection and you are more than obsessed with him. I mean, have you seen this video of him rapping to Emma Watson's beatboxing? Perfection.

8. Your standards in a significant other now include "a mind at work."

9. Not only do you know how to count to ten in French, you also know the Ten Duel Commandments, and you also cry when you think about how they combined those two songs...

10. If you spent most of the play thinking Eliza was naïve, Burn reminded you that all women are tough and strong creatures whom you should never cross.

11. You might have a ten dollar bill in your wallet just so can see the face of your new favorite perfectly imperfect main man, Hamilton.

12. Finish this sentence: "How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore..." If you asked, "For which song?", you are definitely obsessed.

13. You might want to write letters because apparently there is nothing so good as holding a letter to determine your fate. Whether it's to find the man you're marrying, talking to your already-married lover, burning away your memories, or determining a feud, I can guarantee a text message will never offer you that much satisfaction.

14. You are undeniably "Ham4Ham" and praying for the day when you get to take part in the show's unique and incredible lottery.

15. You're ready to just listen to your soundtrack for the next five years until you can get a ticket because it's unlikely you'll win the "Ham4Ham" lottery anyway.

"Hamilton" has definitely won over all of our hearts, and yeah, I might be jumping on this bandwagon a little bit late, because I never believe I'll fall in love with super popular music (especially when it's about history?), but seriously, this musical is so beautiful and worth every moment of my life that I've spent listening to it.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
