I’ve just returned from my residency week for the completion of my Masters degree in History, and it was awesome! It was so great to be able to have intellectual discussions throughout the week with people actually interested in history and with the knowledge to carry on the discussions. So basically it was awesome to be surrounded by a bunch of other history nerds, who I will certainly keep in touch with. We also had Condoleezza Rice as our commencement speaker, and she was great. She was really candid and real and bipartisan, which was really refreshing. Though we had some inserting demonstrators, the whole thing was a great ending to the week. And now I can call myself a professional historian, and I am definitely adding MA to the end of my name in my work email.
With that said, I am thinking about either starting a new blog, or setting aside a specific day where I conduct a history discussion. What do you guys think on that point?
As to my reading and writing, I finished the last book in Cassandra Clare’s series, City of Heavenly Fire, and Variant by Robison Wells. Currently I am reading What’s Left of Me by Kat Zhang. I will wait to finish the series and talk about Wells’ series all at once, you can expect to hear about Clare’s finale this week though. Writing was basically non-existent, I just didn’t have the time or brain power to get that done this past fortnight. I did get myself a nice new journal though, and got some brainstorming done, so that’s better than nothing right?
I’m glad to be back in my blogging community and am going to catch up on all that you guys have been up to!
