I am shy, dedicated, and geeky.
I've completed my fourth semester for my M.A. Have learned that there are basically no jobs for history majors (partially thanks to Bush, but not all the blame goes to him). Right now I'm working at Target as part of the logistics team just to be able to pay the bills.
I'll also be continuing work, but starting actual academic work on my thesis which will focus on the 1853/1854 congressional term of Gerrit Smith. If you know who John Brown was, you should know who Gerrit Smith was.
I'm now also a Graduate Assistant at the University, and besides babysitting undergraduate classes, I'm working on a project for documenting the black cemetery in Shippensburg.
