"I also see guys on the machine go almost comically fast. Slow on the slide, then explode at the catch, those were drilled into me. "

"Where? It's not a cheap sport. I rowed for some time in college. It was one of very few varsity sports that took anyone with a pulse over six feet (except coxswains). Very beautiful but also very demanding sport. Training was often grueling…"

"It really depends on what you want to concentrate. What particular part of classical literature will be your focus? Greek? Roman? Poetry? Historiography? A certain time period?"

A grounding in ancient history?

Avete and χαίρετε,I'm just about to graduate from the undergrad program in classics at the University of Toronto, and I'm happy to say that I'll be off to a master's program in the same field next year. The trouble is that my degree has been almost exclusively focused on developing linguistic capability--I can read Latin very well and Greek well enough, but both my socio-cultural and historical learning leave something to be desired.I don't intend to do real work in those fields, but I would…See More

Post First Date Advice

I had a first date yesterday, it went really well (I think) but I'm not sure what to do next?Some background...I never had too much trouble with the ladies but I'm 32 now and this feels different to when I was in my mid-20's. Like I'm dealing with a woman rather than a girl.I've only just began dating again after a 4 year relationship so I'm a bit rusty.I met this lady online, she messaged me first in fact, we exchanged messages for a day and I asked her out for a drink. For the week in between…See More
