Thank you to Katie for letting me contribute to her blog.
So your ambition is life is to become a history professor. While others in secondary school were attempting to sleep through class you were arguing with the teacher about which was truly the high water mark of Rome, Hadrian’s Wall or the Antonine Wall. For your 16th birthday you asked your mum for a replica Queen Elizabeth I’s coronation dress. Last week you successfully argued on an Internet forum that the Yanks were idiots for not equipping all of their Sherman tanks with the 17-pounder anti-tank gun. You are definitely professorial material.
