If you have read any of my articles or have ever talked to me for more than five minutes you will know that I have love (#obsession) for "Hamilton" the musical. I can't tell you if it the amazing choreography, the beautiful voices of the actors, or the high levels of sass but something in this musical speaks to me. Most people say they don't have enough time to listen to the whole soundtrack. This is where this article can helo those souls who have yet to be touched. Today I want to describe all 46 Hamilton songs in two sentences or less! Are you ready to take this shot? Let's begin!

12. The Story of Tonight (Reprise)

Remember those drinking buddies? Yeah, now they are having a bachelor party....also Burr is dating a married woman but who cares!

14. Stay Alive


15. Ten Dual Commandments

What should be Lee vs. Ham, is actually Lee vs. Laurens......Spoiler alert: you don't hear from Lee after that.

16. Meet Me Inside

Daddy Washington comes and disciplines his boys. Also, just for clarification, Hamilton is NOT Washington's son.

17. That Would Be Enough

Eliza is preggers and tells Hamilton. Hamilton finally realizes there is more to life that fighting and starts to think maybe talking less is a good idea.

18. Guns and Ships

Lafayette! Oh...also Hamilton finally gets to be the leader of a group of men......but this is mostly about large baguettes.

19. History Has Its Eyes On You

Thomas Jefferson pops on the scene and is about to give the new nation a ride of its money. Also, he wants to kiss a state, what is that all about?

Hamilton and Jefferson have a tiff that can only be described as a sassy rap battle about a bank and slavery.

26. Take A Break

Eliza is all like "Hey Hammy? You kind of haven't really been around and I think you should come upstate with your family. Angelica is coming and our son, Phillip, is a little rapper!" Alex is all like "How about a bag of nope?"

27. Say No To This

(One of the sassiest songs in the show and arguably one of my favorites)

Sass Master is back for another unknown reason. But good news, he knows John Adams.

34. The Adams Administration

(Okay so there is a cut rap in this and it is my favorite thing to just randomly rap)

If this song was an Odyssey article it would be titled "An Open Letter to our piece of shit president" and it wouldn't be about Trump this time. (#savage #noregrets)

35. We Know

42. The Election of 1800

Since A. Ham is out of the picture for a bit, Burr and Jefferson are battling over the presidency. And guess who gets the final vote to decide between the two?

43. Your Obedient Servant

Alex chose Jefferson because he actually knew what he stood for. Burr is about to get trigger happy.

44. Best of Wives Best of Women

If this was an odyssey article is would be from Alex entitled "An Open Letter to the wife I should have loved more."

46. Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story

The "where are they now" song. Eliza still loves Alex, Jefferson is president, and the bank is a real place now.

And now you have been through the emotional rollercoaster that is Hamilton the Musical.

I Recommend This $85 POC-Founded Hair Brush To Everyone — Here's Why It's Worth EVERY Penny

It replaces nearly three steps in my hair routine.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).
