How do you like your work? the gardening and tutoring stuff?

Overall, I really like the jobs I have. I have a great boss, I’m able to save money for college and I have some free time to spend with my friends. Really, I can’t complain.

I also said that out loud, Oops…😅


where do you even start on the russo-japanese war? it was a war of iconography, a racist battleground for the rest of the great powers (roosevelt provided the commentary of “the plucky little japanese”), a test run for world war i, and an effective death knell for two empires (not even a decade after the close of the sino-japanese war, russia would come to find that revolution was a bigger threat than any humiliating peace the japanese could deliver). it wasnt just “the victory that startled the old world and warned the new,” it, along with many of the events of the late 19th century, was a preview of the sheer bloodshed that would beget the rest of the 20th century

im going to borrow a quote from a different scholar here and when people ask on the aftermath of this conflict, i wanna answer, “we are still seeing the effects”
