It is I, once again peeking out from my hibernation. *waves*
I would apologise profusely for my long absence but that would indicate it won't happen again, and we all know it will!
December was crazy! My work was moving to a new location which meant a week of packing and a week of unpacking while at the same time doing my regular job. So I was swamped!
And then came Christmas which always means extra work. (For as I work at a rehabilitation home someone has to feed the residents, even in the holidays)
Then after December 28th I had no more extra work and was looking forward to a well deserved vacation, so of course I have been sick ever since!! (I feel very sorry for myself at the moment)
But on a cheerier note let me tell you about this fantastic thing I just discovered that has taken up most of my spare time recently.
It's called Hamilton!! A hip-hop and rap musical about the founding fathers.
Yes, I realise it's a crazy concept but Pinterest has been sending me quotes and pictures from the play as recommended pins for months now, so I thought: let me see, or rather hear, what all the fuss is about.
I listened to Act 1 and found it not that bad. Then I listened to the whole album and was left with a lot of feels that could only be remedied by listening to it once more.
No one was more surprised by my sudden love for it than me - I mean hip-hop and rap are some of the only music genres that I decidedly dislike, but I guess all rules have exceptions...
Listening to the musical on repeat for a week left me with a lot of random knowledge of the American Revolution (something I have never been taught in school). This left me hungry for more, and somehow that ended with me starting to watch a 13 hour documentary about it. (Not how I imagined spending my days off)
And as my interest for that time period is still growing I find myself looking for movies/books taking place during the American Revolution. Can you recommend any?
I know this random post doesn't make up for a month's absence but I was really itching to write something...anything, And I missed the blogging world:)
So tell me, how has winter treated you this far?
