"Hamilton" will blow us all away.

The 10 Steps Of Becoming Obsessed With Hamilton

By now, you’ve probably heard of the new musical" Hamilton," but if you aren’t listening to it yet, then you need to start listening to it non-stop. Just so you’re prepared to know what you are getting into, here are the steps of what it is like becoming obsessed with "Hamilton."

1. You hear everyone talking about Hamilton.

It seems like everyone you know is talking about "Hamilton" and you don’t understand what the big deal is all about. Alexander Hamilton? He wasn’t even president!

2. You listen to one of the songs.

Somehow, someone gets you to listen to one of the songs. Hip hop and history? Interesting combination…

3. You start listening to the rest of the soundtrack.

Alright, you’ll admit it, you’re intrigued. You look up the soundtrack on Spotify or YouTube. Forty-six songs?! I guess you have to be in it for the long haul, you can’t just say no to this.

4. You find that one song that really resonates with you.

Whether its “Satisfied,” “Burn,” or “Wait for It,” you put listening to the rest of the soundtrack on hold until you replay this one song at least 100 times. Even when you move on from it, you can’t help but go back and listen to it just one more time!

5. You start searching for videos of the Broadway show online.

You become annoyingly frustrated with how hard it is to find a video of a live performance. You’ve watched the performances of them at the White House so many times now, but you just still aren’t… satisfied.

6. Your YouTube history becomes all Hamilton related.

YouTube just knows that you want "play it again" when it comes to “Guns and Ships.” I mean, how could you not, with a rap like that.

7. You start considering yourself an expert on Alexander Hamilton and the time period.

Where was "Hamilton" when you were in high school studying the founding fathers of America?!

8. Everything reminds you of Hamilton.

Someone say the word satisfied? Cue Angelica. Or talks about telling stories? You’ll be sure to start belting “Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story.”

9. You look into buying Hamilton tickets.

And then start to cry when you see they are all sold out and way too expensive on StubHub. Plus, there is the fact that right now it’s only showing in New York… Oh, well. You’ll wait for it. You’re not throwing away your shot to see "Hamilton" live and marvel at the genius that is Lin-Manuel Miranda.

10. You make it your mission to get your friends obsessed with Hamilton, too.

You can’t help but want to help educate them and introduce them to the new, greatest obsession of their life. Your friends will just be helpless when it comes to you and constantly listening to "Hamilton."
