Footnotes, Endnotes, and Parentheticals that cost me my thesis

I hope you have enjoyed. I have school on the brain because I went out with school friends last night and tonight, and we have plans to watch some college football tomorrow afternoon. I don’t have much of an investment, but one neighborhood historian is from Ohio and another is from Michigan. Should be rowdy 😉
