to study history and maybe teach it one day at the university level.

Why?

Well, when I was thinking about all the things I had been raised on, so much classical work, renaissance, medieval stuff, and thousands of things and research, I thought of studying history and I felt something I hadn't felt in a long time. Fun!

It's fun. And I especially think it would be neat because it's kind of something I already do anyway but haven't done much lately because of shit school work. So anyway, I like research and understanding topics in history. I suppose one of the important reasons is growing up around people who just don't know very much about history or facts for that matter. I want to know stuff and get paid to know stuff and be able to reason stuff!

Yeah, it's fun to learn stuff when it's interesting ^_^

But I'm not doing an undergrad degree. I figure I do the Jack Ryan approach and major in something that's employable (CS, IT, Eng, or Business, or something else) and then minor in history.

Lesson 2:

The Earth is Flat. You'd do well to absorb this fact. Evolution is a lie, don't bother with it.

Anyway, which kind of history? Ancient, renaissance, modern, etc?

Not exactly sure. I still have to decide on undergrad studies first, so I'll still have time to think about it before then. Probably will work off the first load of debt before going to grad school, but I'd probably pick renaissance to modern history. That's not to say I wouldn't research other areas =p

The way history is taught in Greek schools (just reading from the textbook which is Christian-biased) made me hate it. However, when taught properly, history can be very interesting. Especially ancient history. Just make sure to engage the students if you become a history teacher. I once had a High school teacher that engaged the students, using activity sheets and similar stuff. He was the only one who managed to teach me.

Yeah, that's about the only thing keeping me away from professorship. Some people are meant to teach and others aren't. I've taught classes before and was always given good marks for it, but it's really not my thing. I'd prefer to just sit on a couch and read or solve a puzzle or do consulting work.

All universities care about is you writing books.

Hell of an episode of Even Stevens, that was.
