Being a high schooler on home instruction in a town with a tiny library, I have somewhat limited access to research material. But I love to learn new things, about… everything.
So on the rare occasion I come across a history buff who’s in the mood to lecture, I can listen for hours.

Everyone has a different opinion (if they have an opinion at all, of course…), and I want to hear them all.

I’m taking a High Middle Ages class right now and my head is spinng. Our professor recently passed some geneological charts and there are two Richard Is on one of them. Two! Because all the other people sharing the same few names wasn’t bad enough, now they share roman numerals.

It’s impossible to be both sane and a student of Welsh history for long. The two states do not mesh.
