    You didn't even learn about the atrocities on Kristallnacht?

    We watched a few movies and documentaries about and set in the Holocast era, as well as seeing plenty of the grotesque pictures taken during and after the war.

    Origins and aftermath are pretty alright, but the battles are where all the action is at! That said, I do like quite a bit of political intrigue and the circumstances leading up to the wars, as many people seem to not be well versed in the reasons wars happened or what happened in them because they don't pay attention as teenagers while in school.

    I find the '50s and '60s very interesting in both the 19th and 20th centuries. Mexican-American War also includes the 10 years before it where Texas was a republic independent of Mexico and was fighting for its independence from Mexico. Its how we got California and Arizona, among others. Oh, and my courses also briefly touched on the Spanish-American War in 1898, which is how we got several island territories.

    What did you find particularly interesting in that list?

    We also touch quite a bit on historical figures of America.

    Basically, between 11 and 13 we learn about everything major up to World War I. At 16 we learn some about the stuff between WWI and WWII, but mostly everything from WWII to the 1970s. Even cultural things about those eras.

    It goes (and I'm leaving out some details):

    Native Peoples in each region of the US and how they lived (there are a freaking lot of them, but there's a focus on the major ones such as the Iroquois).
    The colonial era from Columbus on to the American Revolution in the late 18th century. Of particular note was the colonial sides of the Seven Year War in the 1750s and 1760s and the events that led to the American revolution.
    The American Revolution.
    The formation of the nation and its early governing documents.
    A bit about Europe such as the French Revolution.
    Napoleon selling us a huge chunk of New France.
    The War of 1812 against Britain.
    The Mexican-American War.
    The climate leading up to the American Civil War.
    The Confederate States of America.
    The American Civil War.
    President Lincoln's Assassination.
    The "golden age" of American expansion and immigration, where the "Wild West" was settled and hundreds of millions of immigrants really started coming in droves because rumors spread that our streets were paved with gold because there was so much opportunity and wealth.
    The Titanic.
    World War I and the influenza epidemic.
    The Roarin' 1920s.
    The Great Depression/Dust Bowl years.
    World War II on the British/American fronts.
    The 1950s and the Red Scare.
    The 1960s and the Civil Rights Movement.
    The 1950s/1960s and counterculture.
    The Vietnam War.
    The Watergate scandal.

    My history curriculum was very America-centric, but didn't really touch on anything after the 1970s. Over the years, this includes America pre-Columbus and extends all the way until the 1970s.

    What kinds of history have you been learning?
  10. donavannj
    December 4th, 2011 8:39 PM
    Well then you sound well-rounded knowledge wise. Good with history at all?

    What about processing raw data?

    What about statistical math in non-visual form?
  13. donavannj
    December 4th, 2011 2:48 PM
    Massive writer's block was annoying and I have other distractions like video games.

    Simple math is easy peasy and I usually can do my own statistical calculations without a taking a college level math course on them.

    I enjoy reading, but as a partial perfectionist writing is challenging because my subconscious rejects ideas before they reach my conscious mind and my conscious mind also rejects ideas.

    I like the social sciences, sciences, and mathematics the most. Writing takes effort.

i was gonna make a celebration thread but who the hell am i kidding i don't hang with that crowd

So basically, today's my seventeenth birthday and yesterday was my third PC anniversary. This officially makes me a veteran, which feels extraordinarily weird. Being seventeen also feels weird, because sixteen was such a comfortable age. Sixteen suited me just fine. Ah well, to a new year!

That since he dropped the mop look, Justin Bieber's hair looks a lot like mine does when I put gel in it. :/

I feel violated.

Well, it's just over a month away now, but it's still weird to think about it. I've been 16 for almost a year (funny that) and in that time, it's grown to be my identifier. It's such a comfortable age. An even number, a square number and a number which legally entitles me to all sorts of debauchery and increased fares on public transport.

On top of that, it's the year in which I've spent most time on the internet. I've come to love PC quite a bit during my time here, but I've probably...
