    I love history and I'm sure I would have studied it but, yanno, I had to pay bills. Maybe when I'm done working but I would agree it's the N. So I'll have to settle with reading excessively on the subject.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Absolutely. I only got the M.A. because it bumped my pay scale as a teacher and gave me the opportunity to make extra cash teaching a college class on the side. I wouldn't have pursued it otherwise.

    Graduated last December in history, English and Latin (I think roughly equivalent to M.A. in English and history and B.A. in Latin).
    I'm currently working as a teacher at a school while receiving further training (a required 18-month period with additional oral exams, papers and graded demonstration lessons that is required before getting tenure).

    I don't really believe in MBTI anymore. However, my last self-typing was ISFP or INFP.

    Broadly speaking, I'm a historian of the Middle Ages in Europe. My dissertation will probably focus on some aspect of Italian religious culture in the High Middle Ages but have secondary interests in France and England. I was an early medievalist when I got my master's with a particular interest in the Merovingian Gaul—it was a PhD program but I was battling depression at the time and had a hard time sticking with it so I ended up leaving with an MA. Back in grad school again (a different one though) for the PhD.

    The practicality of my decision occasionally haunts me particularly because the job market is so terrible right now. That said, my department has pretty good placement rates so I'm just gonna keep doing what I have to do and hope for the best. I've put most of my eggs in this basket so I have to keep going now, lol.
    I think that's some pretty interesting stuff you're working on, but something I wouldn't want to get into myself - frankly, I think that medieval history is a mess
    In the medieval part of my oral history exam for the finals (which didn't go over too well, although the medieval history examiner was the best of the bunch), I chose Frederick Barbarossa as my minor and mendicant orders as my major subject, and while it's not something I'd want to get into further, I think I can see its appeal, and I have the greatest respect for medievalists in general, not least because I think that it's almost impossible to even come close to having a broad overview of the period in general because so much is happening in so many places all the time, and it all seems interconnected, while at the same time the whole mentality is either so alien from a modern mindset, or at least from my own. I just find it hard to get a grasp on it.
    Out of curiosity, why did you choose your subject in the first place?

    I think many historians are drawn to their fields because they like the amount of evidence that's available to them. The European Middle Ages hit a kind of Goldilocks spot for me; there's not so much evidence that it leaves no room for imagination but not so little that I feel like I have nothing to work with. I also like the strangeness since it challenges my storytelling capacities.

    That said, I wouldn't have developed these predilections if it weren't for my mentors, who are fine scholars and inspirational teachers. It's really 90 percent their fault.

    @Mad Hatter I remember you being a classicist and also studying Greek. Is that what you recently finished?

    I have a lot of respect for classical education in Germany and your rigorously philological approach. Super impressive.

    Greek just makes me want to kill myself.
