That felt exceptionally good.
don't know who you were quoting, Ax, but I totally disagree with them. Humanities/Arts/Soc Sci definitely reward original work and opinions, in accademia obviously you won't get far if you aren't original but it's true in undergrad too.

Yeah. I'm frankly glad I've chosen Kiwi history, as there's so much that hasn't been done yet, so I don't have as many worries about finding something original as, say, a World War II historian. I feel sorry for anybody right now with a major World War II interest. There's just been so much done already! Finding something original that more than three people give a shit about must be hard. "The impact of World War II on carrot production in New Zealand market gardens during 1942" probably hasn't been done ... and probably for a bloody good reason!

A few nights ago, I took the rubbish out late, and as I came back in, I noticed one of my neighbours still had Christmas lights around the edge of one of their windows. WTF, people.
