advertiser to artist?

What I have learned so far:

Italian: Basic italian language and Italian culture/history
Anglo-American Literature: Marlowe, Shakespeare, Renaissance
Photography: Changed ideals and perceptions of reality
Arts of Modernity: Baroque and Classist art forms

I hope I haven't lost you so I can say this... BORING RIGHT??

If there was ever one thing in this world that I knew I was uninterested in, it was history.  NEVER have I ever learned so much about history in a given period of time.  I've avoided it at all costs.  BUT.  I'm surprisingly intrigued. What's happening....
