In which i have a Hamilton addiction

Hamilton

Hey there people! Hope you’re doing swell today. Around here (Greensboro, NC) it’s pouring rain and sort of gloomy. In spite of that I got up, worked out and then came home and painted … poorly. I say poorly because I don’t really like most of the paintings thus far.

 

Sometimes it just clicks and I love the colors and forms but this is not THAT day. (That’s from Lord of the Rings Return of the King for those of you who don’t know pop culture!) You’re welcome!

 

I have ventured into my office because I have loads of paper work. I hate paperwork. Beyond the fact that it’s time consuming if I’m getting stuff on paper it’s certainly NOT autopay type stuff therefore it must require my attention. I hate paying attention. Nonetheless I shall endeavor to deal with it … because I must. After all I have had FAR too many things turned off because of inattention.

 

In other news, I have gotten a lot of new blog readers and subscribers lately. I can’t quite figure this out beaches I barely write on this blog anymore. The only correlation seems to be that the LESS I write the more popular I am! Yeah, that doesn’t make any sense to me either so if you’re some sort of guru let me know any other correlations you see.

 

By the way, it’s not like shit doesn’t happen for me to write down. It’s just that since I’ve been painting more and I’m basically useless 22 out of 24 hours a day I seem to use the useful time on painting. Therefore I haven’t been writing. I know I could be less useless but why start now?

 

Also, Keely has ruined my life. Bet you’re curious huh? Here goes: two weeks ago I was a normal (kind of), semi-functioning (if that much) human being just going about her business (which is basically just existing … I bring very little to the table). Then Keely texted Andie and myself and said we just HAD to download Hamilton (Broadway musical) and listen to it.

 

I didn’t.

 

She bugged me again.

 

I didn’t.

 

She bugged me again.

 

SO I DID!!! Big mistake. I listened once and boy was it interesting. Then, of course, I had to Google to find out if everything was true (it was) and then I had to Google more because I had to know MORE about Alexander Hamilton.

 

Then I listened to it again … and again … and fucking again. Now it constantly runs through my head and I’ve got Kevin listening to it. I’m fucking addicted.

 

Then I started reading all the steps of addiction to Hamilton on Buzzfeed and I have them all. I CANNOT STOP listening to it.

 

I have no memory but I’m learning the words. Andie finally listened to it and now her and Keely have complete conversations in just Hamilton speak. (Yes it’s a thing).

 

So that’s what I can’t do anything else with my life. I go to bed singing Hamilton. I wake up singing Hamilton. It is encompassing my life.

 

Ugh… I totally forgot I have all this damn paperwork.

 

I’ll just put on Hamilton and get started.

 

Listen to it … or don’t if you want a life.

    Thanks for the tip – I will NOT be looking into Hamikton.
    BTW, we got here Sunday and if the rain doesn’t stop soon I am going to lose what’s left of my sanity.

    Outlander books, 9 In the series so far, and Starz did the first book as season 1, 16 episodes. And, yes, I’ve turned my best friend, another friend and her mom, and my daughter into it so far. Men in kilts…

    About getting more popular while writing less, it can be all about quality and your readers\’ expectations.

      True. But the quality is still crap so that can’t be it. Thanks for the comment:))
