15 Struggles Every History Student Has Faced At Least Once
The struggles faced by History students are tales as old as time.
1. Trying to psych yourself up to leave the house for your one lecture of the day.
So. Much. Effort.
2. Doing pretty much nothing all term, then getting ambushed by five deadlines at once.
3. Finding yourself sleeping on piles of historiography notes in the library.
4. Literally never being able to find the book you need in the library.
And it always seems to be the last Richard Evans copy.
5. Rewording the fall of the Soviet Union five different times in an essay to try to make the minimum word count at three in the morning.
6. And having to pull all-nighters to get everything done, then not knowing if your argument even makes sense.
7. Not understanding how some people can be so good at memorising dates.
You’re not even sure what the date is today, never mind the exact date something happened several centuries ago.
8. And dreading your lecturer going into anything to do with economic history.
9. Hating the people who won’t let anyone else in the seminar speak.
10. But being unable to stay angry when they answer a question that you don’t know anything about.
Even though it’s probably because they took the last library book.
