Hey my little ponies! I took an unexpected break from blogging just to recharge a bit. I finished dog grooming school a few weeks ago, but since July is kind of jam-packed (hey, San Diego Comic-Con!), I can’t quite go job hunting just yet. My family reunion also took place not too long ago, and I’ve been bestowed the great honor of being my sister’s maid of honor at her wedding next April! So… yeah. That’s what’s been going on in my life as of late.
But anywho… as you may know, I am OBSESSED with Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical Hamilton. It’s like my new *NSYNC. I follow some of the cast members on Snapchat and Twitter, I constantly look up YouTube videos. I am Hamiltrash. This musical has made me care about the dude on the ten dollar bill more than I ever thought I would. Like, I have a stupid school girl crush on Alexander Hamilton. That’s how bad it’s gotten!
Today marks the 212th anniversary of Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton’s infamous duel that took place in Weehawkeen, NJ. Naturally, I have an outfit for the [somber] occasion! SPOILER ALERT: Burr f*cking shot Hamilton, and he died the next day. 🙁
Last month I scrolled through RedBubble to see what kind of Hamilton t-shirt designs were available. ‘Cause you know once you fangirl hardcore about something, you need apparel to express how much you love it! This tee with a vintage boxing motif popped up and I knew that I had to have it 😀
If you’re still one of those people that haven’t immersed themselves in Hamilmania (WTF are you waiting for?!), watch their performance from last month’s Tony Awards here:
