Say, have you ever said to yourself "Gee, if only I could get my daily intake of Disney, American History, Doctor Who, Hetalia, Neopets, Once Upon a Time, politics, and all other sorts of nerdy fun all in one blog"? Then you have come to the right blog, my friend.

My name is Rachel, and I'm a teenage geek from Virginia who is far too obsessed with the American Revolution and likes things she probably should grown out of years ago. I also need to revamp my blog and get a half-decent theme.

I am currently in a committed love affair with Frank Turner's voice.

I never had a lot of close guy friends. I’m not used to being around guys who are super comfortable with girls. I didn’t hang out with guys one-on-one unless there was some sort of romantic interest. And as a result, I have no idea how to discern if a man treats me a certain way because he has romantic interest in me or because he sees me as a really nice, fun friend, and is more mature than who I knew in high school. 

fUCK. 

HI RACHEL

I EXIST

TRUE. VERY TRUE. 

I guess “guys who could at any point be capable of attraction to me” would have been a better descriptor.

White House: Our strict military standards to avoid civilian deaths will not apply in Syria

Remember those strict rules of engagement that President Obama issued to the US military to avoid civilian casualties?  Yeah, you can forget about those…

from Yahoo News:

The White House has acknowledged for the first time that strict standards President Obama imposed last year to prevent civilian deaths from U.S. drone strikes will not apply to U.S. military operations in Syria and Iraq.
A White House statement to Yahoo News confirming the looser policy came in response to questions about reports that as many as a dozen civilians, including women and young children, were killed when a Tomahawk missile struck the village of Kafr Daryan in Syria’s Idlib province on the morning of Sept. 23.

The village has been described by Syrian rebel commanders as a reported stronghold of the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front where U.S officials believed members of the so-called Khorasan group were plotting attacks against international aircraft.

But at a briefing for members and staffers of the House Foreign Affairs Committee late last week, Syrian rebel commanders described women and children being hauled from the rubble after an errant cruise missile destroyed a home for displaced civilians. Images of badly injured children also appeared on YouTube, helping to fuel anti-U.S. protests in a number of Syrian villages last week.

With President Obama, words do not mean what they mean.  They mean whatever he wants them to mean.  Standards are not standards. Promises are not promises. Laws are not laws. They are all just empty words.


Saw a girl in a lizzywhimsy shirt walking on the opposite sidewalk from me on my way to class. I’m so disappointed that I couldn’t go after her. 

Shirt friend that got away, I guess.

With 15,000 men to Washington’s 11,000, Howe’s army was superior in both firepower and manpower when the two forces met along Brandywine Creek, at Chad’s Ford, in Pennsylvania near the Delaware border. Howe attacked on September 11, sending Cornwallis with half the troops in a deft and silent flanking maneuver—reminiscent of Long Island—to the left to cross the stream and come behind the American right wing. General Sullivan, commanding the right wing, turned almost at the last

minute to meet the assault. Cornwallis had almost broken through Sullivan, but Nathanael Greene brought two brigades from the center and raced four miles in forty-five minutes to save the American right from utter rout, and perhaps the entire army from destruction. In the meantime, Gen. Wilhelm von Knyphausen, commanding the center at Chad’s Ford, was able to crash through the American center, and Washington was forced to retreat north to Chester, where Greene brought back his brigades to join him. The American defeat had been severe indeed; Washington had lost over 1,000 casualties, while the British had lost 500. Again Howe failed to press ahead quickly and destroy the demoralized American troops, but this time there was perhaps the good excuse that the British forces were too weary.
