Dumbledore laitto mut ja Dracon seuraa sitä. Se jatko meil huutamist vihasesti.

“Te tyhämit hölmöt! se huus.

Mä aloin itkee verisii kyyneleit alas mun kalpeet naamaa. Draco lohdutti mua. Kun me päästii takas linnaan Dumbledore vei meidät professori Kalkaroksen ja McGarmiwan luo ja ne molemmat näytti vihasilt.

“He harrastivat seksuaalista kanssakäymistä Kielletyssä Metsässä!” se huus vihasel äänel.

“Miksi teitte sen te keskinkertaiset aasit?” professori McGarmiwa kysy.

“Miten kehtaatte?” professori Kalkaros vaati.

Ja sit Draco kilju: “KOSKA MÄ RAKASTAN SITÄ!”

Kaikki oli hiljaa. Dumbledore ja professori McGarmiwa näytti edellee vihasilt mut professori Kalkaros sano: “Okei. Voitte mennä huoneisiinne.”

Draco ja mä mentiin ylös samal ku opet katto meit.

“Ooks sä kunnos Eebenpuu?” Draco kysy hellästi.

“Joo, varmaan.” Mä valehtelin. Mä menin tyttöjen huoneeseen ja harjasin mun hampaat ja harjasin mun hiukset ja vaihdoin mustaan lattiaan asti ylettyvään mekkoon mis oli matala kaula-aukko ja siin oli punasta pitsiä kaikkial ja laitoin mustat korkokengät jalkaan. Kun mä tulin ulos…

Draco seiso vessan ees ja alko laulaa Hyvän Charlotten biisii Mä vaan haluun elää. Mul oli tosi otettu olo, vaikkei sen pitäny olla siel. Me halattiin ja suudeltiin. Sit se sano hyvää yötä ja se lähti vastahakosesti takas sen huoneeseen.

a note on burr’s intellect and how it’s portrayed musically

i’m only going to be talking about burr’s short verse in my shot bc otherwise this would be ten miles long, but let me just say: lin-manuel miranda is a fucking genius. (warning, this is going to be a long post.)

as far as i recall, this is the only time burr raps in the narrative. and it’s 4 measures to tell hamilton and crew to shut up, in a language they’ll understand (rap), after being asked in the previous song to rap a bit.

just for a second, let me talk about internal rhyme.

internal rhyme is a component of rap that’s exactly what it sounds like: the rhymes within a verse that don’t fall in line with the ends of the phrases. they can still rhyme with the ends of the phrases too, but they aren’t on the ends of the phrases. (most of the time, you’ll notice internal rhymes because there’ll be emphasis on the rhymed syllables.)

now, hamilton’s verses are laden with internal rhyme: i could cite a billion examples, but i’ll only pull one for now.

“older”, “colder”, and “shoulder” are grouped together in the same rhyme scheme, with “shoulder” being the main source of internal rhyme.

similarly, “(disad)vantage”, “manage”, “brandish”, and “famished” are all in the same rhyme scheme, with “manage” being the main source of internal rhyme (although it can be argued that “brandish” is too because of the way it plows through the end of the phrase there with the straight sixteenth notes.) (also, shoutout to those polysyllabic rhymes for showcasing hamilton’s intelligence.)

now we’ll take a look at hamilton’s crew’s verses. start with lafayette:

there’s not really internal rhyme in here. because of his accent, lafayette can pull rhyming “france” and “’on(archy)”, but that’s about it. not surprising; he’s not unintelligent, it’s just that he’s still figuring out english.

then mulligan:

mulligan’s got a bit of internal rhyme going on with “chance”, “(ad)vance”, and “pants”. the “so(cially)” and “sew(in’)” could be argued too, but the fact that the emphasis is placed on the “ly” of socially and not on the “so” makes it hard to argue.

then of course, laurens:

laurens, getting up there with hamilton and bringing in some polysyllabic rhymes! we’ve got “truly free” and “you and me”; “you and i” and “do or die”; “sally in”, “stallion”, and “battalion”. that’s three different rhyme schemes, so good for you– but then, we’d expect a good command of the english from someone who helped hamilton write essays.

now, finally, we get to burr:

“gen(iuses)” and “keep”. “trouble” and “double”. “with” and “sit(uation)”. that’s already three internal rhymes, completely separate from the end rhyme. (he fits a polysyllabic rhyme in there too with “trouble” and “double”.)

and then the internal rhyme that goes with the end rhyme?

“fraught”, “got”, “taught”, “talk”, and “shot”.

that’s five instances of rhyming in two measures. let me repeat that: five instances of rhyming in two measures. the example i cited has hamilton doing four instances of rhyme in three measures.

burr’s intelligence and command of the english language is at least on par with hamilton’s, if not greater, as evidenced later by their partnership as lawyers; but lin-manuel miranda manages to portray that just in four measures.

that’s how to develop a character musically.

1. Vastaa maailmaa avartavaan kysymykseen rivien välissä, esim. mikä on elämän tarkoitus
2. Älä käytä sanaa “pillu.” Sano vagina.
3. Muista otsikko.

How to take an Essay from Good to Great

Hello, all!

I’ve just recently been writing my Extended Essay, and something I’ve noticed during the process is that this one thing can completely change how people read your essay, and consequently, can get you a much higher grade!

Have a Point. (No, really.)

The point you are making in your essay should have very little to do with the subject you’re writing it on. It sounds crazy, but trust me.

Let’s say this is your thesis: 

“Chemistry was the most influential area of science during the Enlightenment because of the drastic changes which allowed it to develop into modern chemical science.”

From here we can break it down into three parts: What, How, and Why.

WHAT are you claiming? (Chemistry was the most influential area of science.)

HOW do you know this? (Because through drastic change it evolved into modern chemical science.)

WHY is this relevant? (Uhhh…)

This is the trap that I see so many people fall into (and I have fallen into it myself a few times) when they try to write major essays. It’s the difference between a B and an A, or eventually in upper-level classes, the difference between a pass and a fail. So how do you fix it?

Figure out why you’re arguing the thesis. Why are you making the point in the first place, other than because the teacher says you have to? 

This would by my answer:

WHY is this relevant? Because the advancement of chemistry during the Enlightenment era shows that critical analysis of systems within the natural sciences is mandatory in order for evolution within the field. Science can’t progress if nobody is willing to question it.

This type of universal point is what will get people interested in your essay even if they can’t relate to something as specific as chemistry or the Enlightenment. And the great thing is, you only have to include it a few times in the essay (conclusion especially) to make it work! You still prove your original thesis just like you would normally… this is just a little sprinkle of greatness on top. This is the best advice I have to give you on essays.

It works. It’s strange, but it works.
