Everything I knew about history prior to college was knowledge I sought out. I learned my history by watching Wishbone and reading [auto]biographies and historical fiction :)
In college I had a fantastic Native Peoples teacher who further spurred my love of history.
Because of my self taught way of learning I probably can’t tell you what year the Mayflower reached America or what countries were a part of the Axis power in WWII. But that’s not all history is about!
This blog is to challenge myself to get back into history. I want to learn about old Hollywood stars, sewing history, Native American traditions, the history of photography and videography and many, many other things. Things that are interesting and fun! As I embark on my learning journey I want to share my discoveries with you. Sometimes it will be a quick fun fact or trivia question and other times more in depth research. I hope you will join me as I explore the fun side of history.
By the way…you’re probably wondering who I am. My name is Whitney and I can be found in most corners of the internet under the name ‘aglanceatmyworld’ or ‘Whitney Sews’.
I am a mid-twenties gal from Oklahoma. I’m married to my best friend, Jeremiah, who I met in college.
My favorite place to be is Silver Dollar City, which is no surprise since it’s a theme park set in the late 1800s and full of history!
Well that’s enough about me. I’m super excited to get started learning and sharing and I hope you are too!
