Elephant armor

So yesterday the history department here at the college invited a speaker to give a talk.

And before that the provost and the department chair hosted a dinner for her and I was invited.

It was pretty good, the dinner and the talk. I have major anxiety so it was tough for me to walk over tbh but it worked out in the end.

The chair knew the speaker in grad school and we were trying to get stories out from him and they refused to share any awww.

I also found out a little more about my study abroad site, the University of Leeds. Apparently they have an armor museum there that's made up of extra armor that didn't fit into the London museum.

They also have elephant armor, yes.

The history department here is great, honestly I really wish I hung out with the profs more because they are very interesting and fun people. I've been working for them as an assistant for over two months now and I'm still nervous around them. I need more courage I guess.

I also had to write a paper for my graphic novel class that I was dreading about. However, my roommate I sat down Tuesday night in a classroom and just wrote for almost five hours straight.

(We took a break about three hours in to get a snack that we both ended up getting sick off of, thanks Sodexo.)

It was actually a pretty easy paper to write once I sat down and pumped it out. I wrote about how graphic novels could be used to teach history in classrooms. Why WOULDN'T it be easy? If I knew it was going to be this easy I would've gotten it done this past weekend honestly.

So with that paper turned in, I can finally chill for a little bit. I don't have any assignments I need to do in the immediate future which is really nice.

I still have things to do for the semester, so I'm not home free just yet. But I am significantly less stressed for the time being.

I am also currently 103.6 lbs, that being after eating the Thanksgiving dinner they made tonight. I'm better than I was this summer (I am pretty sure I was 95 lbs at my lowest) but my mom is still worried about me.

I'm trying to eat more, but it's difficult. Anorexia is a bitch.

Also Jessica Jones comes out tomorrow and I'm very excited about that, but I'm sure I'll talk more about that later.
