Burr is every bit as smart as Hamilton, and every bit as gifted, and he comes from the same amount of loss as Hamilton. But because of the way they are wired, Burr hangs back where Hamilton charges forward. I feel like I have been Burr in my life as many times as I have been Hamilton. I think we’ve all had moments where we’ve seen friends and colleagues zoom past us, either to success, or to marriage, or to homeownership, while we lingered where we were—broke, single, jobless.

There’s been a lot of talk, deserved talk tonight about the cabinet, about those four brilliant men who pushed us higher, who pushed us to greatness. Deserved talk, but I wanna talk for a second about my cabinet, which was this brilliant company of actors. I wish I knew which camera to look into - I know you’re often in a room on the side, but I wanna tell you something.

me: I’ve listened to Hamilton a lot and it’s getting kind of old, maybe I should take a-
my shit brain: TAKE A BREAK!! RUNAWAY WITH US FOR THE SUMMER, LET’S GO UPSTATE!

What Hamilton Taught Me

When the revolutionary war started and ended

How to count to ten in French

Who Alexander Hamilton even is

Being the older sister is hard

Lafayette was the real MVP

If your man don’t treat you right burn the stuff he gave you

Things don’t go very well if you wait for it

When the French Revolution started and why

How the French and American revolutions were connected

You can write your way out of anything if you try hard enough

I will never be as successful as Alexander Hamilton

I will also never have the motivation to write like I’m running out of time

Who the ambassador of France was in seventeen se-se-seventeen se-se-seventeen, seventeen eighty nine

Don’t assume anyone is “truly a man of honor” because you’ll probably die

Actually just don’t duel. Like, ever.
