Henry Knox by Gilbert Stuart.…

Hahaha I have to do a presentation about Henry Knox at a conference.  Let’s hope my paper was as good as my professor says it was, because I can’t remember anything about him!  It’s also an American Politics conference, which makes me a tad nervous… (me being a history/art person.)

Don’t use a devotion to historical accuracy (whatever that means) as the excuse for writing women as less than full-fledged people. Don’t think that because women in the past lived lives different from their male contemporaries (where they had dowries, worked primarily as homemakers, provided a majority of childcare, couldn’t own/inherit property in their own names) that they had no hopes, dreams, desires, or ambitions of their own.

Don’t think that because some accounts of history said women were forbidden from doing something that women didn’t do it anyway.

destined for academia?

i suddenly realized, that, for fun, i go to the harvard coop with friends to pick out history textbooks to read.

life options

  1. Global/Imperial History MA (ideally at Oxford)
  2. Animation MFA (ideally at UCLA) 

It’s hard to choose between such different worlds. 

I misread a crucial part of my primary source and now I have to think of entirely new questions :| :| omg :| :| :|

(I blame the lack of blood circulation in my brain.)

I have been stalling on writing this conclusion for two days.

  • What is wrong with me?
  • Why hasn’t my professor emailed me to tell me he cancelled the assignment and is giving me an A out of pity?
  • Why isn’t my computer capable of writing conclusions on its own?
  • And writing titles on its own? My current title is: “I chose a document and I have feelings about history”
