Short Term…

Hey all. I apologize for not blogging much lately. Between finals week, spring break, and transitioning into short term, things have been a bit hectic in the last couple of weeks. With that justification out of the way…

Short term is now in full swing and I am enjoying every minute of it (For more information on short term check out Bates’ explanation of short term and a blog about my short term experience last year).  My course is called ‘Introduction to Historical Methods’ which is a required course for all history majors. So far we have read two books about how historians approach history and most of our class discussions have focused on the ‘What is History?’ question. The class meets 3 hours a day, 4 days a week and the workload is completely manageable. As a self-proclaimed history nerd, I am enjoying the class and all the abstract conversations about history.

Outside of class I have been keeping busy playing IM flag football (3-0 so far but my team has a tough game tonight!), going to Range Pond (beach about 20 mins from campus), doing some light volunteer work, and catching up on some pleasure reading. All in all, short term continues to be just as relaxing and rewarding as last year.

Speaking of reading, former-Batsie Elizabeth Strout (’77) just won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction! Read about it here. Until next time…
