    It's about to change again! Yeah, I'm procrastinating my coursework by trying to find different Sherlock images. Trying to find one that looks the best and not too small or too pixelated.
    Oooh, that one's great! (An an inventive way to procrastinate. )

    Pointless historical factoid - the historian Plutarch reports that Caesar said 'alea iacta est' in Greek.

    (Oh great, now I really want to read Plutarch. Again.)

    There's also the (possibly even more pointless) factoid about Romans drinking urine, but that's disputed, i.e. I think that, based on one source, they didn't, while the internet thinks 'Yes, they did.'

    Rejected two days ago and it's only hitting me now
    Same. I was an English applicant too. So sorry you didn't get an offer. I thought I'd feel better after a couple of days but if anything I feel worse. I don't think I've ever felt this awful because it's a weird kind of awful. I feel proud to have even been considered for interview but it feels like Cambridge proposed to me and then told me on our wedding day at the altar that they didn't love me anymore (over-dramatic, I know). I'm having a huge existential crisis right now.

    The worst part is that I think I know why I got rejected and it was literally one thing I said at the end of the first interview which I definitely shouldn't have said. The nervousness made me become WAYYYY too honest, it was like word vomit and I think it ruined everything for me. Before I was like "oh well, I tried my best and it didn't work out" but now, after this realisation, I'm like "it's literally all my fault, I've let everyone down because I couldn't keep my mouth shut for two seconds at the end like a fool and now I will suffer for my own stupidity and have this loom over me for the rest of my life". So yeah, everything's great!!!

    That's the problem. That's one of the things that made me feel like I need to go into History because a lot of what we know is manufactured by media hyped 'fake' facts (i.e. based on little substance but sounds fun) and this is the 'image' of History that we carry with us, teach to our children, and forms - perhaps subconsciously so- but forms a part of our subconscious ability to judge the pst and judge others because these 'fake' facts aid the building of our subconscious framework of understanding i.e. the precedent we experience the world.

    *read*

    *cry because yes, someone else understands*

    Granted, I still have yet to thoroughly research the *bleep* out of this topic, so I could be wrong, but I will, because this is annoying me to hell!

    (Oh, and my source is Catullus' poem 39, which is rather funny. For really funny, go to his poem 84.)
