Number one thing to know about this blog: if you're one of those people who doesn't like talking about politics, steer clear. Likewise if you ARE political but are one of the ultra-rightists (or ultra-leftists) who thinks that anyone who doesn't conform to their narrow little worldview is somehow evil: don't bother. I have no problem with you disagreeing with me (in fact I welcome it, so long as you can back up your arguments), but don't come into my house just to pick a fight.
Me? I'm a 23 year old political junkie who's just finished writing a thesis in international relations. I'm not quite sure what to do with myself next, and I'm sure that over the next few months, the blog will reflect this. I'm just about to embark on a 6 month assault on Europe by backpack. Travel updates will abound, from all the 25-odd countries I will be visiting.
So check back often, and y'all might just learn something. Hopefully, I will too.
