Alexandria

  • Me: You know Alexander the Great had a weird thing going with him mom, sending her cups and jewels and stuff
  • Professor: Well, I haven't conquered anything recently, but if I did, I'd send my mother a post card at least.
  • Me: Oh yeah, I can see it now as he went across Asia minor: "Greetings from Alexandria!" "Greetings from Alexandria!" "Greetings from Alexandria!" "Greetings from Alexandria!"
  • Professor:
  • Professor:
  • Professor: That's pretty funny.

I’m joining the newspaper at work! It’s only a monthly thing we send out within our department to share updates about processes etc, but I suggested we have a few other articles non work related so people want to read it. I’m going to have a section called Maddie’s History Corner! which will feature ‘this month in history’. With the 100th anniversary of World War One’s start being this month, I know I’ll have a lot to say!

I’m also kind of disappointed in the lack of attention the centennial is getting. Like that’s a big deal I think. World War One has always been the most interesting war to me. It changed the mentality warfare forever.
