America’s Secret Role in the Rwandan Genocide- Helen C. Epstein

America’s Secret Role in the Rwandan Genocide- Helen C. Epstein

When I read this the first time I just underlined and defined the words I didn’t know, and man, I wish I had read the content the first time around because I’m tired now, drinking my 9th shot of espresso this morning (it’s only 9:38 am) […]

Bitter Harvest Movie Reflection

I’m actually 100% not going to write a reflection on this movie because I have to do a reading for this class but Wikipedia says it’s an action-romance-drama-type-thing so I don’t think I’m missing out on much, yikes.

Another Blog Post I Wrote For a Different Class

I actually had to write three blog posts about International Relations; one was about Trump’s Global Democracy Retreat, one was about North Korea’s Nuclear Bomb Testing and this one is about the Drug War in the Philippines. I thought the one about Trump and the […]

A Blog Post I Wrote for Another Class

A Blog Post I Wrote for Another Class

If this post were for this class and not for International Relations I’d have been much more aggressive and straight-forward and just overall more vulgar because Trump is a fuckwad “Trump’s Global Democracy Retreat” by Pippa Norris https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/07/opinion/trump-democracy-state-department.html (Links to an external site.)Links to an external […]

The Seven Dwarves of Auschwitz Movie Reflection

A Memory of Solferino- Henry Dunant

A Memory of Solferino- Henry Dunant

(Because apparently information about the author is important and I’m not about to take handwritten notes on this guy) “father of the red cross” super ambitious guy Dunant’s big ideas: societies of trained volunteers should be organized in all countries for the purpose of helping […]

How to Process a Book

Author: death date, background, education (what kind of school are they from? Schools of thought, intellectual/legal schools; someone educated at Oxford will be different than someone educated in Moscow) gender, origin, past experiences, their mentor Table of Contents: headers Setting: publication date and place; setting- […]

I Should Probably Say This First:

Sometimes I use humor when I get sad or uncomfortable. I’m fully aware that genocide and mass murder and killing people isn’t funny or something to be sarcastic about but as I’m writing I’m realizing that I’m saying “cool” and “great” and “lol” a lot […]

Important Wars & Dates & People I Should Make A Note Of:

Notes from September 5, 2017 SHERMAN: only famous in the US; make war so terrible that they’ll never do it again; you can attack civilians in situations of military necessity/when necessary; Limited war isn’t really popular because it’s easier to write laws than it is […]
