Bad Ass Lenin, even with mittens

When I see this picture, I see a bad ass Lenin. He is going to fuck you up. Or he is simply too fabulous for you! I find this encouraging. I have yet to hear from my last application to a PhD program. I’ve been feeling low. But today, today I said fuck it. I’m searching for new schools to apply to again in September. So here is the list of schools I am considering because they focus on Russian history:

  • Carnegie Mellon University
  • Harvard University
  • Indiana University
  • Michigan State University
  • Northeastern University
  • Northern Illinois University
  • Ohio State University
  • Ohio University
  • Queen’s University
  • Stanford University
  • University of Arkansas
  • University of Miami
  • University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
  • University of Saskatchewan
  • University of Toronto
  • University of Washington
  • Yale University
