i know shit all about baseball

I just want to see an interview with Anthony Ramos. Like, he’s the youngest member of the leading cast, he originally had plans to play baseball in college before falling into theatre, and he plays two of the four people that Hamilton loved most in life (not counting the other 7 Hamilton kids). I want people to hear him talk about feeling too “ghetto” to be in the show and how Lin told him that he was great and he didn’t need to change at all. And I want him to talk about his connection with Philip. And like there’s just a bunch of shit that people need to know about Anthony Ramos and his portrayal of John Laurens and Philip Hamilton.

Rules: tag nine users you want to get to know better.

How old are you?: 35 and not happy about it

Current Job/Dream Job?: PR Director for a large school district/PR for Major League Baseball

What are you talented at?: I don’t even know…writing, I guess? Sewing. Glaring. Not flipping my shit every time I want to (which is 95% of the time). Being friends with dogs. 

What is a big goal you are working towards (or have already achieved)?: finishing my Master’s, I guess? Idk honestly, my goals are usually just to make it through the week unscathed and I rarely accomplish that, soooo

What is your aesthetic?: Greasers

Do you collect anything?: nothing actively. I have a shelf full of Funko Pop figurines, if you want to count that? And I always keep an eye out for Alice in Wonderland stuff to add to my collection, but I don’t search for it. I also collect stress but you can take that from me

What is a topic you’re always up to talk about?: Caught Looking. Baseball. Dogs. Lee Pace. Video games in general

What’s a pet peeve of yours?: HOO BOY where do we want to start? I’m just going to list the first few that pop into my head cause I get annoyed really easily. It’s a character flaw I’m well aware of (although I usually just stay quiet about it). Chewing loudly, people making me late, people eating food off of my plate without asking, the word “woot”, the word “nonny”, misspellings of certain words (”smol”, “stahp”, etc.), people who take up the whole walkway and walk ridiculously slow, people who try to blame shit on you at work when it’s not remotely your fault…okay that last one was specific, but STILL. Also, if you do any of these, I still love you. They just drive me insane. 

Good advice to give?: Smile and be nice to people, even if it’s the last thing you feel like doing…people will remember it. // Always have a backup plan. // Being different isn’t a bad thing so don’t let other people tell you it is. // Don’t grow up. Literally. Try and become a vampire, getting old sucks. And if you find one, send them my way.  

Recommend three songs?: Beyond Belief - Elvis Costello, Nothing But a Heartache - the Flirtations, Happy People - Weirdos
