PEI History Guy

G’day there!

When people ask me what I do for a living, I like to tell them that I’m a freelance historian and writer. Because in a perfect world, that would be my ideal bread and butter (irony: I don’t actually care for butter on bread, and yes, I know that’s weird); however, an unfortunate fact of life is that the world is anything but perfect, and while I have found work in my field here and there, it’s been slim pickings. I take what I can get when I can get it, but truth be told, the prospects for someone like me here on the Island, in this line of work at this moment in time, are so dismal that if I were to rely solely upon it for financial stability, I’d be in a worse state of existence than an unfortunate soul confined to a Dickensian poorhouse.
