Humanities Is So Much Better Than Math

"Man is the measure of all things" ~Protagoras~

We watched a documentary about knights in class today that I thought was a little interesting. The thing that I thought was interesting was Chivalry and how it came about. The fact that when knights first came to be there really was no such thing as Chivalry. As a matter of fact there was one time that knights barged into a city and killed about 5000 unarmed innocent people. Chivalry came to be because some guy decided that is how he thought knights should be. But it still wasn't up to the way it is betrayed in movies today. Knights were just knights, they did not rescue damsels in distress or fight off dragons. They were like all other types of people and weren't way better either. They were just higher up in the roles of feudalism.

About this blog

Over the course of the semester I will be writing, and keeping up with what we discuss in class. I'm already interested, but lets hope it keeps going.

About Me

My photo
I am currently a college student studying music education, and maybe family consumer science. I am pretty quiet but when you know me it's kind of hard to get me to shut up. I have an amazing family, and an even more amazing boyfriend. They support me in pretty much anything that I decide to do. I like to read, but haven't been reading much my first semester of college. I love movies, and I pretty much watch them all the time. I also love music. I play the alto saxophone and am learning the guitar. I can be really crafty and like to make things.
