The Struggles Of Being Obsessed With Hamilton

I will never be satisfied.

The Struggles Of Being Obsessed With Hamilton
Theater Mania

Like so many theater fans across America, I was bitten by the "Hamilton" bug a few months ago. From that first listen of the soundtrack on Spotify, to then buying the whole soundtrack on iTunes, I couldn't get the songs or the story out of my head. Now that the show is celebrating it's one-year anniversary on Broadway, it got me thinking about how my life has changed since the obsession started.

1. When you get caught speaking in Hamilton references.

Dinner isn't ready yet: "Cool, I'm willing to wait for it!"

When something doesn't go your way: "I will never be satisfied!"

Big audition or interview coming up: "I am not throwing away my shot!"

Not to mention half of the conversations with your other Hamilton-obsessed friends, that always involve lyrics from "The Schuyler Sisters" or something that rhymes with "Burr, Sir."

2. You can't count to 10 without somehow morphing into the "Ten Duel Commandments" tune

I know, it's such a struggle.

3. On that note, this:

4. Also: when counting, never ever stop at seven.

Poor Phillip! All he wanted to do was defend his pops, and—I know, I know—too soon.

5. Non-stop stalking the cast on social media

And dreaming that one day Lin tweets you back.

6. Dying to see #Ham4Ham

And, if you make it to one, getting a decent standing spot. You'll have a much better view if you just stay home and watch it on YouTube.

7. Now you respond to pretty much everything with this:

Da da da da da...

8. The fact that you can't wait for this election to be over just so you can make this reference:

Also, Daveed's face is entirely priceless.

9. Assigning characters to you & your friends:


10. Tagging people and getting tagged in endless Hamilton memes & Tumblr posts:

11. Becoming a Hamilton-missionary to your un-enlightened friends

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.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
