Cheers to my new followers,
As much as I pretend I could ‘give a shit’ about people taking an interest in me, I cannot deny it is nice to be noticed. Since I’ve accumulated a number of new followers who only know me through the internet, which I cannot lie worries me a little, I thought I’ll tell you a little bit about myself. This isn’t an invitation to look me up, and use my personal details in an attempted to trick your skeptical colleagues that you have a “boyfriend.”
I am a first year history major at York University in Ontario. Although York isn’t a school known for history geniuses such as myself, I only plan to do my undergraduate degree here and go to graduate school at a more respectable and a less self-righteous-socialist hippy breeding institution. All joking aside, I am very happy with my classes and I’m grateful for a chance to have a post-secondary education, which I hold to the highest importance.
Born in England, with a Welsh-Irish heritage I embrace my background quite a bit; I enjoy all the traditional foods and drinks, including Earl Grey tea and a nice pint of British Ale. I grew up in a nice part of England, in a small town in Gloucestershire and I have fond memories of the place. My family and I visited Canada when I was eight, and I love it so much we decided to live here (I believe its because of the nicer people).
Apart from history I have a number of other interests, a lot of which pop up on this blog from time to time. This includes beer tasting, swimming, cycling, theater, comedy and as my friend Caitlin would put it “being overly pretentious.”
Feel free to exercise your curiosity and ask tons of questions, whether history or non-history related I’ll do my best to answer them thoroughly and as quick as I possible.
This is me, on my other blog. It’s a bit more personal, I’m sorry I haven’t put anything up on my shark one in a while. My only explanation is I’m a male and I cannot multitask. Nevertheless I still love sharks, and I’m really impressed with some of the shark blogs tumblr holds, I just fail to keep up. Sorry.
