Honestly I just find history so interesting. I home other people do this too, but whenever I’m watching a show or a movie I really enjoy looking up what was going on in that era. Who was the ruler of said country the story is based in, what wars were going on, anything really. It give me so much to go off of while watching. It helps me have a better understanding of what the characters are doing and why.
I also love how there is so much going on at the same time in history. When in school everything is so chopped up and you really ave no concept of time, but when you start looking at things yourself, you start to understand. It’s just so freaking amazing. I love it.
“found this intriguing.. yet odd. I’m onto something..yet I feel I’m being cautioned.. maybe the answer at the end of my questioning wont soothe this despair. what if after all this and all my searching I am just seen as a "spook” “qook”.. Something is up dude.. but I get this fucked up sinister feeling. I hope I’m wrong but… watch the truman show, it’s pretty much a goodway to explain how I feel yet.. the end of the movie is where I feel I stand.. staring at that metaphorical door. I feel a sharp poke on my right arm.. it stopped.. shit like this swear probably give people ptsd of their nightmares.. yet I’m just…going.. taking it in, in a way.. this place is so odd to me.. and idk wtf to do about it. I am being reminded of the family and friends I have. I was told my grandmother spoke to me even as she sleeps as of yet. it’s odd. odd I tell you. I am odd..yes.. I feel unaware of the true nature of what I feel is masked in lies. yet truth I believe still remains.“ >>>>> my words to a friend, I text her all sorts of shit.. been working on not going to her so much..because I don’t want to bother her..even though she’s been so cool to tolerate my essays lmfao
Does anyone else feel perplexed about this thing we call "LIFE”?

I mean obviously he gets a bad rap over in America but I was mostly talking about in general. We the British, his people call him Mad King George. I mean he was an alright king unlike his grandfather and father before him he considered himself British and a British king (not German like them who would visit Germany often and choose to go there over Britain). He seemed alright to me just very sick. I remember watching a documentary about him with my dad and it quite interesting to learn about him. I must admit I don’t remember too much of the detail but general feeling that he really shouldn’t just be remembered as the Mad King.
James Stewart’s character in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939), everyone’s image of the idealistic politician, was based on a real historical figure, Senator Burton K. Wheeler (D-MT). Wheeler was well-known for a lifetime of advocating progressive causes, from defending labor rights in his home state to exposing the Harding and Coolidge Administration’s complicity in the Teapot Dome scandal and serving as Bob La Follette’s running mate in 1924. Within a year of the movie, Wheeler became a pro-Nazi isolationist who supported America First, held hearings on Jewish influence in Hollywood and leaked American war plans to the press, thus soiling his reputation beyond repair. Not for nothing is he Charles Lindbergh’s Vice President in The Plot Against America.
The key learning here is that people need to be realistic about politics and politicians and not put anyone on a pedestal. You’d think that were obvious, and yet
Bazı geceler yaşanır, yaşayıp yaşamadığını ayırt edemezsin. Öyle ölümdür bazı geceler, sabahları öyle zulümdür. O günün gecesi de sabahı da hafızamın yanmasını istediğim yerinde saklanıyor. O gün ortalık yangın yeriydi, o gün ortalık anacık babacık günüydü o gün ölenin cesedi bile o anda soğurdu ama ben kalktım, o gün, orada, tuttum yine seni sevdim. O gün orada beni gidecek yerim yoktu, o gün inanacak kimsem yoktu, o gün sırtımı yasladığım ağaç bile dallarını kafama vurmuştu ama ben kalktım, o gün, orada, yine seni sevdim. O gün azapartık bir ömür takipçim olacak sanıyordum, o gün birdaha yüzüm gülmeyecek sanıyordum, o gün senin sırtın dilendi, o gün ben en umulmaz ağrıları tek başıma sırtlanırken yine orada çaresizce Bi kadın seviyordum.
All righty it’s time for a history meme
Cicero: Good morning Catiline, as you can see your assassins failed to kill me in the night and you must suffer yet another day of my shenanigans
Jefferson resigned in 1796 in order “to be liberated from the hated occupations of politics, and to remain in the bosom of my family, my farm, and my books.” He gave the letter to Washington.
Washington spoke little with Jefferson after this, for he realized how much the man had done to undermine some of his preferred Federalist policies while in office. The two corresponded until approximately three years before Washington’s death, but the letters were about farming.
Sources: the following sources were used - the collected letters/writings of Alexander Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton the Revolution, Ron Chernow’s biography of Hamilton, The Intimate Life of Alexander Hamilton by Allan McLane Hamilton, Hamilton by Richard Syllia, and Charles Cerami’s book called Young Patriots. In addition, War of Two by John Sedgwick and Washington and Hamilton by Tony Williams were used throughout.

I know you’re busy.
What do you need, sir? Sir?
I wanna give you a word of warning.
Sir, I don’t know what you heard, but whatever it is, Jefferson started it.
Thomas Jefferson resigned this morning.
