Take a course on the history of the Aboriginal peoples of Canada.
Class is mostly filled with second or third generation Canadians who are not Aboriginal.
One Aboriginal girl in the class.
Spend the entire semester learning about all the ways the Canadian government has fucked over the Aboriginal peoples.
First Nations girl responds to this by bringing the class of mostly white Canadian’s cookies.
My mom went to an auction and picked up a box of random goods.
Inside was a Ptolemaic coin from around Ptolemy III’s reign.
Among the stupider things I found while hunting for gifs.
Obviously when you’re not a Vanderbiltian silver fox, the sun just shifts it’s lighting all the time to make you look the exact same in all situations. It’s cosmic affirmative action!
This is a good post by one of the creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender on color theory, and how color can look completely different depending on surrounding colors and context.
Uhh…that last image isn’t from the Aladdin film…It’s from a porn comic. It’s been cropped, in the full image he’s being blown by Hercules.
i admire your ability to retain information, you sick fuck
I literally can not stop laughing. I’m so sorry.
Taking few years off. I’ve been in school since I started in Kindergarten, so that’s been… eighteen years. I really need a break.
After that we’ll see what happens. The goal is to return to university to obtain my Masters in history, but my current job is talking about how my position might become more full-time and permanent. And my job is a history gig, so maybe I’ll stick with that? Maybe keep working while I work on my Masters? Who knows…
But for now, I’m concerned with just getting a vacation from schoolwork for a bit. Learn what it is like to be a full adult so I can appreciate the student life again.
My city is on the front page of Reddit today discussing the blizzard that hit, and so many people are asking why our schools didn’t close, and every response is ‘Because Canada’
We don’t shut our schools down unless the ambient air temperature, not including windchill, is -40 C. Schools remain open in the public district. I only enjoyed one snow-day when I was a kid and that was because literally no one could leave their home. We built a small tobogganing hill in our backyard we had so much snow.
Writing my last paper of my Bachelor’s degree. It’s about how Ovid and Virgil portray Augustus in their writings, and why they portray him as such. Basically Virgil had experienced the events of the civil war between Caesar and Pompey AND Octavian and Mark Antony and was just ready for some motherfucking peace and didn’t care that Augustus was creating an empire so long as it was peaceful.
And Ovid was basically groveling at Augustus’ feet trying to be let back into Rome and out of exile and hated his life so much he was willing to talk about how great Augustus was in a completely and utterly shameless way.
