It's important to remember that history isn't just the stuff in the textbooks - it's going on around us every single day. The events we study from decades or centuries ago are important, but even stuff from barely over a decade ago is worth committing to memory as well!

Right!
You make a notable effort to recognize that we're living in history every single day of our lives. You realize that while what happened decades or centuries ago is important, it's just as important to remember what happened just yesterday - or a little over a decade ago in this case. Good work!

Right!
You're a super educated historian - at least about stuff that happened in the last couple of decades! People spend a lot of time studying up on stuff that happened decades or even centuries ago, but you know that we're living in history right now, and you make sure to take it all in every day!
