Yeah, I could handle a JB or a Dymocks. Some quiet little secondhand shop would be even better.

All I really want to do is research history and write a lot. Maybe give lectures too. Just work in a university and have Dr before my name.

Or, yeah, start a band.

Thank you.

It's really disappointing just how little is done on Kiwi history, really. I suppose it's good for me, as it really gives me a lot of scope as an aspiring academic, but I just cannot believe people have taken so little interest in it. We only gave women the vote first! It's easily one of the most significant events in the history of the human race, so I would have thought some in depth research would have been done on the social conditions that caused that. I can understand the military and economic history being under-done, but not that. It's really interesting to see how in the 1890s, the Canterbury Women's Institute was advancing ideas about the place of women in society that didn't really catch on in the global feminist movement until the 1950s-60s. I've become quite passionate about this ever since I did a research essay on it last year and I could probably go on forever.
That sounds pretty fascinating, wouldn't mind reading more on it sometime. I imagine my sister might be able to lecture me a bit about it, since she did feminism studies a while back.

Certainly, there doesn't seem to be a big thing about NZ allowing women to vote so early, especially in an international context - yet if it were the US or the English or the French or even the Aussies we'd never hear the end of it.

We need your Kiwi modesty.

With that, I'll be off to vamos - surprising how time flies. Guess I'll have a snooze on the bus tomorrow.

Nighty night, both of you. Nice to meet you, Trance!

educational leadership and policy studies, to be specific. but in that i took a few courses on college student development. we explored psychosocial and cognitive development, as well as temperaments. it was specific to college students because it is such a time of development, however many theories can be applied to people outside of college as well.

Thanks. It's especially surprising how little is made of it in an international context given that a good degree of the impetus for the vote was imported from America, it succeeded in an astonishingly short period of time, and that the Kiwi success was a global inspiration. Part of the reason Aussie women were the second in the world to vote was due to New Zealand, and Kiwi suffragists - especially Kate Sheppard, one of my historical heroes - were very influential overseas.

I guess part of it is that New Zealand in general doesn't make too much of its history. We're proud of a lot of it, but I don't think we've ever really trumpeted it. I guess because we don't have our politics tied to glorious historical achievements like a lot of countries do. I can't quite explain the disparity between Kiwi and Aussie attitudes though.

Anyhow, have a good night!

It seems to be a mix of talking about academic interests and posting photos of stuff vaguely related that we enjoy.

Coming up next, Kiwi trains.

Yeah it will be. I love writing prompts.

By the way I'm hoping to write a poem called Boomerang 3 and see if any U2 fans are in class.

Damnit, now I want to hop on the tram to the bakery and get their five doughnuts for $2 deal. Or a big jam doughnut from the other bakery for $3. Sure, that's a comparative ripoff, but BIG JAM DOUGHNUTS.

Hey Screwtape!

I bet you're looking forward to that. Sounds awesome. I hope you share Boomerang III with us.
