Is it Saturday? Already?!
I can’t believe I went a whole week without posting a single thing! Ugh. But to argue my case, I have read. Reading this:
Which has things like this:
It’s part of my assignment to write a book review. Huh, an official book review. Like for a grade. Like to further my goal on obtaining a degree.
So it’s not like I’ve been purposely neglecting my blog, but I do feel a bit frustrated that I have. However, I am just over halfway through my program and excited I am zeroing in on the finish line. Imagine that, me, having a degree in European History. I’m amused yet anxious I made it this far. Never thought I would. Hope I would someday, but not sure if I could.
This semester is all about the Cold War and despite the nearly zero time I have to read for fun, it’s been an interesting topic (Interesting, the most boring way to describe something interesting insert eye roll emoji). I was only eight years old when the Berlin Wall fell so the “history” of the Cold War was still forming much less absorbed into the educational curriculum.
It’s week three of an eight week semester and the one take away I have on all this is . . . foreign policy. It seemed to pretty much suck during this time. I know the United States found themselves in a precarious position, and hindsight is 20/20, and I understand why certain people to the position the did on certain things, but wow. I digress.
Needless to say, any free time I find I’m squeezing in free-reading. For now, I’ll be posting on stuff I’ve read a while back, while I play catch up :).
