I don't think I've ever been this excited about a #NewYear. #2019's gonna be the year we revolutionize the way the American public both understands & consumes history!🔥🔥🔥

Big things……
Seriously: I think sometimes ppl trained as academics have a hard time imagining communicating their expertise w the public in any form other than the written word.

Time to change that.

People are increasingly only willing to read very short pieces, sometimes not even that.
So we can either keep lamenting that ppl don't read enough, aren't self-educating enough, etc., or we can a abandon our own snobberies abt form & repackage history in formats that ppl DO consume.

Wishing everyone a #HappyNewYear again! But as much as I do, I also know that EU citizens at home in the UK are worried about what lies ahead, esp. after recent revelations about #SettledStatus that confirmed that the government intend to use it to control who of us can stay. 1/
So if you want to stand with us and start the #NewYear with something positive that really helps EU citizens, become an #EUcitizensChampion on #NewYearsDay. Donations make a real difference, enabling @The3Million to continue their vital work.… 2/
I am in awe of what @The3Million have achieved. While #SettledStatus is not what we were promised, without @The3Million the rights of EU citizens at home in the UK would be in an even worse place—they have done and achieved a lot, so please support them so they can continue. 3/3

It is your last day in your old apartment. This house has been both good and bad, filled with all sorts of memories and you do have a couple of testimony from staying here. But, times have changed.
You just got a bigger, more beautiful and most importantly, a better apartment. Whether you want to or not, you just have to move. You have outgrown your former house.

One of the hardest things you'll come up against is mindset. It is what will cause you the most sorrow. Let me explain using a Nigerian example.
