Ramblings of a Deranged Historian

I am a PhD candidate in British history, focusing on imperialism. I have a strong interest in feminism and post-colonial theory. I tend to enjoy geeky TV shows, and I'm a huge comic nerd. Not to mention I love just being wacky to relieve stress.

I keep thinking oh man, I’m so immature. How am I allowed to be an adult.

In 1987, the weight of the 300,000 people that crossed the bridge caused it to sag by 5 feet.

My dad and I were watching it live on TV and he had to assure me that the bridge wouldn’t break or collapse.
