Lin-Manuel Miranda Hosts SNL

If you don’t know how big of a crush I have on Lin-Manuel Miranda by now, then, do you even read here? I had no idea who this guy was until my freshman year roommate Paige started talking about some musical named Hamilton. Paige and I are the same person, to put it simply. We like the same tv shows, books, movies, clothes, you name it. So, basically, we’re the greatest nerds this world has ever seen. And we love it. 

I listened to Hamilton all the way through on the first go. I couldn’t put it down. I actually stayed up until 4:30 in the morning listening to a musical because I couldn’t put it down. I’m serious. (I’m also a nerd, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers.) I analyzed every piece of that musical as if it were an English assignment. There are so many little phrases and notations and repeats that go unnoticed until you replay the entire thing a few times round. It’s a work of literary art as well as musical art.

So naturally when I heard that he was going to be hosting SNL I girly-screamed, did a little dance, and immediately told Paige. I think we were both more excited about this one tv segment than the entire musical itself!

Here’s my favorite part:

Isn’t he just the greatest? It’s got me wanting to take acting classes all over again!

Happy Homecoming!

Homecoming week is this week at the University of Georgia. I’ve been on the Homecoming Committee for 10 months now, so I helped plan and set up most of the events going on around campus. I’m so excited to see the looks on students’ and alumni’s faces when they walk into the stadium on Saturday afternoon for the football game. It’s going to be such a surprise!
