I'm obsessed with this musical. Lin-Manuel Miranda is a freaking genius.
  1. "With every word I drop knowledge"
    From "My Shot" - So not like in an obnoxious, know-it-all way, but I want to use my words wisely and to help build others up and encourage them, and I hope when people have conversations with me they come away with something that helps them.
  2. "I am not throwing away my shot"
    From "My Shot" - No one wants to have a great shot at something and waste it, right?
  3. "I may not live to see our glory, but I will gladly join the fight"
    From "The Story of Tonight" - When there's a fight worth fighting, I'd hope to join the fight without caring about glory for myself.
  4. "I'm looking for a mind at work"
    From "The Schuyler Sisters" - I will not be distracted by a pretty face with nothing behind it. I need a mind at work!
  5. "Look around, look around at how lucky we are to be alive right now!"
    From "The Schuyler Sisters" - This is the optimistic attitude I hope I consistently have.
  6. "I have never been the type to try and grab the spotlight"
    From "Helpless" - I don't ever want to be the person in a group who's trying to get all the attention for myself.
  7. "You will never find anyone as trusting or as kind"
    From "Satisfied" - Trusting and kind. Some people might see those traits as potential weaknesses, but I think they're great and require strength.
  8. "When you knock me down I get the eff back up again"
    From "Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down)" - (Okay, so maybe that's not the actual line, but whatever.) I want to be the kind of person for whom setbacks don't ruin everything. Bounce back and rise up, you know?
  9. "I've seen injustice in the world and I've corrected it"
    From "Non-Stop" - I don't want to be someone who turns a blind eye to the injustice in the world. When I learn about it, I want to do something to help.
  10. "Forgiveness. Can you imagine?"
    From "It's Quiet Uptown" - Forgiveness is important and I want to be quick to do it, no matter what.
  11. "He seems approachable, like you could grab a beer with him"
    From "The Election of 1800" - I hope I'm someone that people see as approachable, friendly, welcoming, like we could grab a drink and talk about life.
