7 Quirks All ​"Hamilton" Fans Can Relate To​

7 Quirks All ​"Hamilton" Fans Can Relate To​

"How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore..."

1. You consider yourself an expert on all things history.


The Battle of Yorktown was fought in 1781 and the Election of 1800 was between Aaron Burr and Thomas Jefferson. The only reason you know this (besides sitting in history class) is because both of these facts were full-length rap songs in "Hamilton".

2. Because of this, high school history was the best time to show off your knowledge.


Any mention of Alexander Hamilton, the Revolutionary War, or George Washington's presidency filled you with joy and prompted a swift showing off from you to impress the class (even though no one cared).

3. When "Hamilton" was up for every award under the sun, you prayed they'd win everything.


The moment "Hamilton"'s name was announced as Best Musical at the Tony Awards, you definitely screamed.

4. You know every word to "Guns and Ships" and can rap them perfectly.

It's the fastest song on the album, but would you be a true fan if you didn't know all the words?

5. You try and convince all of your family members, friends, and even strangers to listen to it.


You can't stop promoting this musical. "Hamilton"'s PR team should hire you for how much you tell everyone you know to listen to the album on Spotify.

6. You can't get over how well-written it is.


Every lyric has meaning and every song is so beautifully written (you're biased, obviously).

7. You have chills even thinking about getting to see it in person.


If you finally do, you know you'll cherish the memory forever.

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
