On History.

Posted 11-26-2010 at 13:35 by Critias

I often get a funny look when I tell someone I'm studying history. The looks get funnier when I tell them I'm going to grad school for history.

My mom -- God bless her -- is particularly baffled by all this. She tries to look happy and interested, but deep down inside I can tell she's tilting her head a little to one side, like a puppy, and trying to figure out why I'm wasting my time. She's proud of my good grades, proud of me getting published, presenting research, and all...

This Mossberg 590 is the best shotgun I've ever owned (and the only).

Hi there, and welcome to the awkward introduction phase of any conversation!

Like any good superhero movie, we're going to start on this adventure with my origin story. Sadly, there will be no radioactive spiders, dying planets and kindly Kansas farmers, or anything like that. In fact, sad as it is to say, I've got no superpowers at all, so as origin stories go, maybe this one's not the most exciting, so I'll go with the short version!
