I break my journal silence with... history! In addition to Discworld connotations, Towel Day and the anniversary of the release of ANH, it's also...

The 137th anniversary of the first woman in the British Empire receiving a Bachelor's degree. Her name was Grace Annie Lockhart and she went to Mount Allison University in the bustling town of Sackville, New Brunswick. She received a BSc because at the time you needed to know Greek or Latin to enroll in a BA program and they didn't teach those to girls. So this was their way of sneaking around it.





The modern day graduating classes look a little different. :p
