I feel like everybody I know is either still in school working on their degree, went back to school to get a masters or other degree, or hates their job.
I'm a few years older than him.

Depending on the major, I know a few people from my graduation year who flailed about and went back to school, a few who got jobs they couldn't stand and went back to school as well, and others who didn't do much of anything, lol.

Does anyone else have an idea on something I could write about?
ooh ooh ooh!!! I know I know! Pick me Pick me!

Use this opportunity to show how the allies purposefully created Israel in the attempt to create their own hold in the Arab world, and to physically ruin the Lebanese/Palestinian people.

Fine. Argue why Columbus is a huge dick to the mexicans, and the history of why this isn't taught in schools until you reach college.

Sounds like a fair deal.

I suggest I pay for the materials, so some money could be involved to make things realistic. That way if you waste the money and do a bad job, your neck literally goes on a stake, like real life.

That might be interesting, but there isn't anything I can really argue there. You are a history major, so you should know that I need to find and argue a specific point about something.
