When I first graduated from highschool I had little to no interest in a college education.  In the end I attended because of expectations.  At first I focused on my A.A. degree with a strong emphasis in world history, anthropology and english.  Eventually, I had to take a few science classes to complete my Associates, and so I signed up for a Geology class.  For me it was more than a bit of a surprise to find out that I truly loved it.  In the end, I earned my B.S. in Geology with a minor in Geography, and even managed to overcome my extreme dislike of mathematics for something that I truly enjoyed.

The Spread Of Tuberculosis In The United States

Several years back I took an interest in the history and geography of how various illnesses spread throughout the world, and how we as humans reacted, and adapted to it. Tuberculosis is simply one such disease that was introduced to the New World after the Colombian Exchange. Wait did I say introduced... sorry about that. It is commonly thought to have been introduced then, but I actually meant to say reintroduced. This wasn't it's first time at the party.
