Have you ever felt, well, overwhelmed when taking on a new challenge? My degree program requires taking 9 hours on American history and culture. On top of the hours, there is community service/volunteer hours one has to take part in. That part of the requirement is not the challenge as I routinely volunteer for several causes at a time. The challenge came in the mail in the form of the two required texts. One of these books has so much text in it I know I am going to struggle. I love reading but there is so much here, I don’t know how I am going to get through it. The second text is the companion reader to help you understand the first. Ughhh… This is NOT one of my strengths! History has always intrigued me, but not to this level. However, I am willing to take on this challenge and vow to do my best. There will be much assigned reading and writing and discussion and so you may or may not see much of me on here in the coming months. Hopefully there will be some nuggets of informative opinion I can share but we’ll have to see.
Until next time!
