Click My Heels Three Times and Get In

Well now I've gone and made it all awkward

Posted by LLajax, 26 February 2012 · 1,382 views

So it was recently my mother's birthday. Like a good little offspring, I sent her a card and called her. My younger sibling, rebrobate that he is, forgot (or chose not to?), despite reminders from me and our dad. Alas. Now he's gone incommunicado and the current parental theory is that he's avoiding contact because he'd have to awkwardly a...

A thought for the historically-inclined folk

Posted by LLajax, 06 February 2012 · 719 views

This post has absolutely nothing to do with admissions. My apologies to the people who may be annoyed by that (you've now been warned though!). Between long bouts of fretting and scouring GradCafe for information, I occassionally read for my classes. As a result of some recent reading I've been doing for a historical methods class, I've be...

Oh Calendar, How you Terrify Me

Every time I open up my email, google lays a bunch of judgement on me. I'm trying to write my emails, and there looming on the top/side/bottom of the page is google's suggestions...

An Observation

Posted by LLajax, 23 October 2011 · 240 views

So, I've been pouring over the posts here for months (okay, so I don't know how much I've gotten out of the various science-y posts, but I'm reading them nonetheless), and I realized just today that I've totally drank the GradCafe koolaid. I've found this particularly true in read the frequent "what are my chances?" posts....

A brief introduction

Posted by LLajax, 19 October 2011 · 326 views

Hello everyone! I am going not to try to step on any toes or overlap with other things written on the other blogs, but I can't make any promises. By way of introduction, I'm currently in my last year of undergrad (in History! But I want to switch over to Art History for grad!). I've been receiving emails galore as part of my senior undergradua...
