    For Two Months Now

    I've been studying history for two months now. So ... almost two thirds of my semester are over. I'm scared of the tests at the end, yes, but apart from that I'm sort of loving it. I've get great tutors, great profs, met great people, the issue is interesting, I'm not getting...

    Not a Major

    I'm not a history major but I love to read history books and study history on my own. I haven't picked a special area that I like but one day maybe I'll find something that really catches my interests. It's so amazing though, the things the world has gone through. So many...

    History Major

    I'm a History major. I love ancient history, especially Greek, Roman, Japanese, and Egyptian. ^_^ It's just so fascinating.. I love world history in general, but ancient holds a special place in my heart.

    But There's No Future In It

    I have a friend who's a professor of History.  I asked him what it was like as a career.  He said there was no future in it.
