“I wrote my way out of h e l l. I wrote my way to revolution, I was louder than the crack in the bell. I wrote Eliza love letters until she fell, I wrote about the Constitution and defended it well. And in the face of ignorance and resistance, I wrote financial systems into existence. And when my prayers to God were met with indifference, I picked up a pen, I wrote my own deliverance.”

How Hurricane could have been prevented
  • Alexander: Honey?
  • Eliza: What?
  • Alexander: Where's my pen?
  • Eliza: What?
  • Alexander: Where - is - my - pen?
  • Eliza: I, uh, put it away.
  • Alexander: Where?
  • Eliza: Uh-uh, don't even think about it! We've been planning this vacation for two weeks!
  • Alexander: Honey, my reputation is in danger!
  • Eliza: Our vacation is in danger!
  • Alexander: It's for the greater good, woman!
  • Angelica: ELIZA'S THE GREATEST GOOD YOU'RE EVER GONNA GET

Last time I’ll post my grad cap probably but this picture came out way better. I’m done with Emerson College and it was really difficult. I was waitlisted, deferred, denied, and then got in anyways. A guidance counselor at Emerson told me to drop out because I came from public high school and she assumed I wouldn’t be able to handle it. She also told me to give up on animation since I was attending a film school…she doesn’t know what being resourceful and well rounded is.

Forgive me if I sound rude, but this was a feat for me and my family!

I graduated Summa Cum Laude and in the top 2% of my class. This public school kid had a 3.9. I had an internship at Adult Swim and temped at Lionsgate all before I touched a diploma. I’m a working class daughter of a first generation American. So yes, I did write my way out, and Hamilton was extremely inspirational to have my last semester of college, when things seemed uncertain. Going back to my apartment in LA next week. Wonder if that guidance counselor cares.

I love my new community out there and can’t wait to get back.

“Wait For It” and “Hurricane” from Hamilton as I see it because of synesthesia, a condition that causes me to see music when I hear it.
I had a great time working on these, and can’t wait to do more songs from the musical!

See more art and support a small artist in my shop! See the creation process on my channel!

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: Hurricane from Hamilton is such an under appreciated song. It shows us Hamilton and his vulnerability. He believes his writing to be his way out of everything and that leads him to doing the wrong thing. It shows us how writing is a constant in Hamilton's fast-pace life and until the Reynolds Pamphlet, it never failed to catapult him towards success. In some ways it even shows us his scars, such as when he talks about his mother. Then there's the lyric, "I picked up a pen, I wrote my own deliverance." How do people not appreciate this song more? The lyrics and orchestrations are so breathtakingly beautiful yet somehow people still say they dislike it.
