Why am I a History major?

Monday, August 27th, 2012

I am  a history major because I enjoy analyzing progressions. The past to me is like another world that I can explore. From  the big events, to the everyday ideals and even to what the fashion was in that day and time fascinates me.

Although Iron Man has a cool suit, and although the Hulk is green, and although Thor speaks like a Shakespearean, I find myself fond of Captain America. He is a 1940’s man living in the present. He has an entirely different perspective on the world and how to save it and only understands flying monkey references.

Similarly, I often wonder what it would be like to live in different eras…so needless to say the movie, Midnight in Paris was right up my alley.

Lastly, I’m a history major because history is a bunch of stories folded up into a one huge story that keeps on going and so even if I become uninterested in a certain topic or era or place, I can switch to another era.
