In “Wait For It” Burr speaks about how his is “willing to wait” for what he wants. He is willing to wait for Theodosia, saying, “And if there’s a reason I’m by her side when so many have tried then I’m willing to wait for it”. Unlike Hamilton, Burr already has status and money, all he has to do is protect the legacy of his parents, while Hamilton continues to fight for recognition. Hamilton makes the comparison to the colonies: “I’m just like my country, young scrappy and hungry”. Here, he shows that he is starting at the bottom and must earn his way up, he must take his “shot”. Burr, on the other hand, would rather stay where he is and wait for his lover.

In “My Shot” Hamilton talked about how rough of a childhood he had but that won’t stop him. Hamilton has plans and goals about what he wants and how he is going to achieve them. For example, “I’mma get scholarship to King’s College, I probably shouldn’t brag, but dag, I amaze and astonish” He is being confident in his abilities go achieve. He is saying over and over again that he is taking his chances because if he doesn’t he might lose his shot. In “Wait For It” Burr is kind of explaining what is going on in his life. He talks about how he is an orphan too. Burr is almost opposite of Hamilton though by saying that he is going to wait for it to happen to him instead of try and go get it. Burr also seems a little bit jealous of Hamilton in one of the sections. For example, “He takes and takes and takes and he keeps winning anyway” he is explaining all that Hamilton got and is getting but if Burr was trying then he could probably reach his goals too

I think people sometimes take the risk without thinking like wait a minutes like do something that may result in loss, failure, etc. For example every time you invest money, you’re taking a risk.

That is a skill that not many have because it is really about being focused on classes or when they are talking to you, you have to listen very well to be able to decide which opinion is the one that you like or are interested in the most.

I agree and I think we can all agree how we make these mistakes our whole life but succeed by never quitting and keep going.

Basically Body Awareness through dance, however, I learn in a controlled environment the things our bodies can and cannot do, and what actions we need to take to perform a desired movement. Dance helps build coordination and spatial awareness, which improves teenage’s /children’s gross motor skills.

In “My Shot” Hamilton shows that he wants to be a part of the revolution. The quote “Hey yo, I’m just like my country I’m young, scrappy, and hungry.” Hamilton shows that he is hungry to fight. Hungry to help set America free from England. “My Shot” goes into more detail on why Hamilton wants to be involved and why he has that hunger. In “Wait For It” Burr talks about his new love interest Theodosia. He also talks about his family legacy. “Wait For It” goes more into detail about Burr’s life. Burr came from a wealthy family. The quote “When they died they left no instructions. Just a legacy to protect.” Shows that Burr comes from a family who had a name and a legacy. This is why Burr hesitates and holds back. He has a legacy to protect. When Burr says “Hamilton doesn’t hesitate.” this shows the difference between them. Hamilton doesn’t have to hesitate because he came from a poor family versus Burr has to hold back because he has a legacy from his family to protect.

Therefore, “My Shot” and “Wait For It” do show a difference between Hamilton and Burr in several ways.

its hard to progress in life if you dont follow the on voice rule, following instructions most of the time its based on how good of a listener you are . Also being able to interact and connect its about being able to listen to other opinion with respect and not always agree but be able to interpret and add on with it .

Thinking before acting is something intelligent because it may be that you can get out of a problem and win a game or fight if you can think I think that persisting before acting is very intelligent in its own way

You can’t learn anything from a mistake until you admit that you’ve made it. Mistakes teach us what doesn’t work and encourages us to create new ways of thinking and doing.

In Hamilton, Burr and Hamilton are very conflicting characters. Both of them believe there separate things, and this leads to them being portrayed very differently. In the song “my shot” Hamilton is singing about how there needs to be a revolutionary war so he can help fight for the freedom of their country. Hamilton is a very outgoing man while Burr keeps more to himself and doesn’t really talk about what he thinks. In “my shot”, Hamilton says, “don’t be shocked when your hist’ry book mentions me, I will lay down my life if it sets us free”. This shows that he is willing to do anything, even die, if it means his country will be free. Meanwhile, in “wait for it”, Burr is talking about how much he loves Theodosia and how he just wants to be with her. He says “He has something to prove, he has nothing to lose” talking about Hamilton. This almost puts Burr in a place where he sounds jealous of Hamilton and how he isn’t scared to do anything. But Burr is more trapped in his own body, and doesn’t like sharing why and how he feels the way he does. Hamilton is more open and outgoing, while Burr is shy and keeps to himself.

Both of these songs really explained and gave us a deeper look on who each of them are. Hamilton in “My Shot” showed that he will not stop for anything to show what he is capable of doing to everyone. He is really willing to do what ever he has to do to make the change within the colonies. Hamilton saying “Hey, yo, I’m just like my country I’m young, scrappy and hungry” he’s hungry to make the change in the country to get away from Britain. “I will lay down my life if it sets us free” Hamilton just wants the colonies to be free and will literally die for it. He’s ready right now and will not be waiting for someone else to do it. Burr in “Wait for it” is a 180 compared to Hamilton. This whole song talks about how he will wait for his chance to help. Burr has a legacy left from he late parents that he has to protect while Hamilton doesn’t. “He has something to prove. He has nothing to lose” Burr said this about Hamilton who really doesn’t have anything to lose due to not having a background or parents that let stuff behind for him to follow. Burr is much less ambitious then Hamilton because he can’t make mistakes because he has to protect his dead parent/grandparents legacy. Hamilton is now just making a name for himself so he can do all the crazy ideas he has.

Both characters are showing their thoughts on how they are handling the revolution and feelings about how things should be done.

Hamilton and Burr have very different characteristics in Hamilton. Hamilton is a person that does not like to wait for what he wants. He likes telling people what he wants to do and what he wants to happen in his life. He shows this a lot in “My Shot.” This song shows how he doesn’t want to let go of any chance he has. Burr is the opposite of this. He always talks about waiting for the things he wants to come to him on their own. He doesn’t want to force anything to happen. In “Wait for It” he sings over and over that he’s “willing to wait for it” which shows that he believes he is where he should be. Hamilton and Burr have very different views about their lives.

We can see how they are both orphans with the war as an opportunity to prove themselves, but in different ways and for different reasons. In “Wait For It”, Burr explains how the people in his family were important and how, “When they died they left no instructions. Just a legacy to protect.” Burr does prove himself in the war and after, but he can’t do what Hamilton does with fear of ruining his family’s legacy. Considering Burr’s feelings towards Theodosia, it’s possible that he doesn’t care about his legacy, unlike Hamilton, because his wife would be more important to him. For Hamilton this is the opposite. His young and strong ambition is shown right away in “My Shot”. He states, “I am not throwing away my shot!” and “For the first time, I’m thinking past tomorrow.” Hamilton started from nothing and doesn’t have anything to lose by taking any chance he can get. Along with not being held back, he wants a legacy for himself by his own will. He believes he can do something big and will prove it. For Burr this is just expected because of his name. Also, Hamilton deals with the issue of his legacy or his family whereas Burr’s chooses family.

While in “wait for it” the title alone tells us everything, Burrs a reserved man that’s willing to bid his time and wait for his chance to rise up the social ladder.

As for similarity’s between the characters, their both ambitious,orphan,geniuses that just want to leave their mark on the world.

I think this should change because many work a lot and with little pay and most have to feed their families and sometimes they do not have enough or many times they do not eat or eat little.
