Though I’m currently on a short break from school, I can’t help but to read/watch all that I can. I’m currently reading Secrets of the Tomb: Skull and Bones, the Ivy League, and the Hidden Paths of Power by Alexandra Robbins, herself a Yale secret society member. So far, the book has been quite engaging, spending the first ~50 pages to give sufficient background on the history, traditions, and customs of Yale so as to be able to understand the secret societies’ purposes and roles.
There are a couple of DVD sets I’m watching as well. The first of these is a 7 DVD behemoth, simply titled, New York: A Documentary Film. It’s a 14-hour PBS documentary that exhaustively runs the gamut from New York’s initial founding by the Dutch in 1609 all the way up to present day. I actually started watching this last xmas break, but only got about four hours into it. I plan to finish it this year.
Another DVD I plan to watch before heading back to school is Napoleon, another PBS documentary. I can’t wait to start this one. Time permitting, I’ll get all of this done, but something tells me that friends will keep me from it! 🙂
Be sure to check out the video I just got of my brother’s truck bouncing on its bags. There are also a few new pics of the truck up there.
