Hello world!

So I am trying this new thing called blogging.  There are so many interests that I have…so we’ll see how this goes.

Groundrules:

1.  Any rude comment will be deleted

2. Don’t be a stranger…no creepy people

Random things about me

I am an explorer…I have always had a unique curiosity with exploring the world.

one of my favorite subjects/interests/hobbies:  Medieval/European history

Books:  Beowulf (especially if there’s notes on historical contexts and elements of literature — I am into notes about books I read– keeps me engaged; as a future history teacher, I hope to fuse both english and history together to make the class interesting — somewhat like an interdisciplinary studies class; History textbooks in high school tends to water down history/not a lot of interesting topics are discussed in depth–hence why I want to include other subjects while teaching history.); The Murder of Helen Jewett (a picture of New York City in the 1820s and 1830s — time of industrial revolution/when prostitution was rampant in the city)

I am wanting to go into secondary education (thanks to the numerous creative assignments I’ve seen in high school)…I once wanted to go into college just because of maturity levels and some of the subjects aren’t taught in high school (European history being one of them — hard to find; it is offered as an AP class in high school though)…maybe I will teach college one day (but now i will focus on going for secondary education just for purposes of time/economy — it would take me a long time to be a college professor, and I am not wanting to wait that long).

I am a daydreamer if I am not doing anything else…I live in my own world.

As I’ve said in the beginning, we’ll see how blogging goes.
