Last year, when life was throwing me more stress than I could manage, I decided I needed a reason to be happy. I needed a future positive event to anticipate.
Musical theater has always been my escape and for the past two years the original cast recording of Hamilton has been helping improve my mood on an almost daily basis. I told my best friend Stephanie that I was going to search for a way to see the show – preferably a way that did not involve us spending $700 each to see the show.
So, when I found accessible seats at Hamilton available for less than $200 each I purchased the tickets. True, the date of the performance was almost a year away, but we got Hamilton tickets for less than $200 per person!!!!!
We have been counting down to Hamilton for almost a year – 355 days to be exact. Slowly the number has been dwindling down until finally November 1 arrived!
Today, I am thankful for Hamilton. That sentence does not even begin to express how grateful I am. But I’m writing this on my phone on the train home from New York City and I am too tired to find the right words to express how I feel.
