Over the weekend, I saw Hamilton the musical. It went above and beyond my expectations, and I felt a strong connection to Hamilton throughout the musical and afterwards. I’ve since downloaded the music and have basically been listening to the amazing songs ever since. I know that there were quite a few liberties taken with the musical and that it isn’t completely true, but I felt like I learned a lot about Hamilton. I knew his story before seeing the musical, but I really enjoyed the way Lin-Manuel portrayed Hamilton. The way he was never satisfied, had huge goals and never let anyone or anything hold him back was enlightening.
The opening song: My name is Alexander Hamilton and there’s a million things I haven’t done but just you wait, just you wait.
When he writes 51 essays: Why are you writing like you’re running out of time?
And Angelica: He will never be satisfied. I will never be satisfied.
I love Hamilton’s approach to life: it’s like he just goes forward blindly, and follows his heart. He comes from literally nothing (his father leaves and his mother dies) and yet rises up in life just based on his passions and natural talent. I find his story inspiring to me and my life. I hope to also go forward blindly and follow my heart and passions.
That being said, I look forward to sharing some stories with all of you in a different way than my blogs. The Self Evolve podcast channel is in the works, hoping to start recording soon. 🙂
