Tag Archive: UMass Amherst


Hello, readers! My graduate application process is almost finished, so I am resuming my posts on here. Tomorrow (Friday the 17th) will be a History Weekend post.

Regarding my applications, I’ve been accepted into UMass Amherst, Boston University, and Columbia University, for a Master’s Degree in Preservation Studies/Historic Preservation. I’m also on the wait-list for University of San Francisco’s Museum Studies program, and I’m still waiting to here back from Marist College’s Museum Studies program at Florence, Italy. In April, I have to decide on the US school I will attend, and I will apply to a Master’s program in Preservation and Heritage Studies jointly taught at Brandenburg Technical University Cottbus-Senftenburg in Germany and Helwan University in Egypt.
So, exciting things await!

Well, this is it. I’ve graduated. Time to face the big, mean world. For a year. I plan to start grad school next fall. But, in the mean time, it means finding work, getting a car, paying off student loans. At this point I’m still processing it all, so I don’t have anything profound to say. God has blessed me with an intellect and mind for academia, a state to support someone like me who cannot afford to pay much for education, and loving family and friends to support me. For those who want to know, I got a 3.898 GPA. Not too bad. I’ve got some posts coming up, if I can tear myself away from Wikipedia.

Back in School

Hi there!

It’s been a while since I last posted. Basically, I just didn’t get around to posting anything during Winter Break, and I had some trouble logging on to my account the past few weeks.
My previous semester went very well, I ended up with a 4.0, which was better than I expected (I thought for at least one course I would have gotten an A-), but I’m certainly not going to complain!
What I did over break:

Re-launch!!!!!

Hi there, everybody.

As you can see if you go through the post history, I have not added any new content here for over a year. That’s sad. Very sad. So many exciting things have happened, and I’ve kept it all to myself. Well, truthfully, what happened was junior year. It was really tough. And in the time that I had off I didn’t feel like writing. At all. Which is why nothing happened on this blog this summer. I was lazy and played Civ 4 all day, or else worked. Hopefully, these lulls are in the past. Senior year is much better workload wise, and I feel like writing again. Of course, the more feedback I get, the more motivation I have to keep content coming. So please, subscribe if you like the blog (even though I don’t have anything new yet!), and leave feedback with what you want me to write about. Ok, enough of that. So here’s some of the highlights for the past year: Continue reading

Hi there!

I have not posted on here for a while, so here is a quick update as to what is going on. I am currently a student at UMass Amherst. I am in my junior year, and transferred to here after graduating from Berkshire Community College with an Associates Degree in Liberal
Arts. I am planning to get a Bachelor’s Degree in History when I graduate from UMass. So, yeah, basically I’m a very busy student. I have some ideas for posts, hopefully I will be able to get around to writing them.

God Bless!
