“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.”
Hurricane, Right Hand Man, Guns and Ships, The World Was Wide Enough, and Who Lives Who Dies Who Tells Your Story footage from Hamilton’s America
You can only upload 5 minutes so I had to narrow it down to just a few of the songs we got footage of :P The jump-cuts are like this because we didn’t get consecutive clips :P Here’s my Guns and Ships gifset from this vid :) Also… Anyone else cried in
who lives who dies who tells your story?? I was weeping! lol
concept; Halsey and Brendon Urie are on tour together. one of them says they should sing hurricane. the other agrees. the audience is full of anticipation. who’s version of hurricane are they going to sing? the audience is wrong. it’s neither. Lin Manuel Miranda comes onto the stage in full Hamilton attire. the ensemble joins onstage. he sings hurricane.
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.
What she means: Hurricane is such an under appreciated song. It reveals more about Hamilton’s past while also telling us that at one point the founding father was suicidal. He wanted to die. It’s such a relatable song, but also inspirational, because he overcame all of that, and so can you.
Summary: Your husband is a drama queen when he’s sick and you’re stuck taking care of him. You’d never admit it aloud but you’re amused with his antics.
Word Count: 650
Warnings: There’s virtually no plot to this, I stole lines from the video, and Lin is whiny. Other than those three things, nothing really.
A/N: I promised one more post today and here it is, right before I head out for the night. Feel free to continue to yell at me in my inbox or the tags - I live for the feedback tbh and I’d love to have some when I get home tonight.
“Don’t you have work today, honey?” you entered your shared bedroom after just getting back from breakfast with your friend. You were surprised to see Lin still in bed this late in the day.
“I called in sick today.” Lin’s voice was muffled from the pillow his face as buried in but you could hear his hoarse voice and stuffed nose despite it.
“Have you taken any cold medicine yet?” your eyes scan his nightstand for traces of anything he might’ve done to counteract this flu.
“I only have enough energy to accomplish one thing today and I didn’t want my last act on this earth to be getting out of bed to take cold medicine.” Lin said dramatically and you rolled your eyes with a snort.
