A Very Random Post

Greetings all!!
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?


  1. I have never heard of Hamilton. It sounds good!!

  2. Good to have you back, dear! :)

    I think it's so cool that you're interested in learning more about the American Revolution. You may end up knowing more about it than I do! ;)

    Haha. I know what you mean about jazz and hip-hop music. That kind of music has never been my style either. It's funny when you find you can actually enjoy something that you never thought you would have. :)

  3. Hello Rose!! Ah yes, Hamilton. I'm not into that kind of music either, and the composer is pretty biased, but it IS catchy, my goodness. "You'll be back, time will tell...";)
