Hello there! This is just a general life update. This fall, I will be traveling to Germany to study historic preservation at Brandenburg University of Technology in Cottbus, Brandenburg. I am already preparing, since this obviously is a big trip. It was a bit sad to turn down Columbia University’s offer of admission, but this school was my top choice.

There will be no history weekend this weekend, I need to take a break. I have some other writings planned that I hope to finish before my trip, but I also have a lot of preparation to do. If I have time once I am in Germany, I hope to do some travel blogging on here.

Well, that’s all for now.

In working on the final history weekend article for my series on Russian colonialism, I realized that I will not be able to complete it in time. I need a break, but will be back next week.

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!

Just as a general announcement, I will be suspending the weekly Thought for Thursday and History Weekend for the next few weeks, at least, while I work on graduate school applications.

These columns will return!

I’ve suspended my Thought for Thursday series for now. Part of my reason for starting the series was to get my content creation going at a more regular pace, and the series succeeded at doing that for me. I do have more content on the way. And if you do want the Thought for Thursday series to continue, let me know and I’ll plan some more for the months to come.

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!
