You know you want to...

Hey guys,

As of today (Saturday the 30th) I am 3 days away from my last exam. I have done 7, with an engineering exam my last one on Tuesday afternoon. Pretty keen to get it done and put all that behind me. Yesterday was a killer with 2 exams, one of which I wrote for two hours on the general development of western historiography and the historiography of the crusades. Yeah well that was fun.

Just in preparing for my blog after I do finish, I was wondering what you guys thought I should do with this blog from here on in. Would you want me to continue what this blog was originally made for and discuss particular topics of interest? I can also continue (after a period of great neglect) my series on the foosball table? Similarly, I can also do some more personal stuff like travel experiences, and some of the 'interesting' things I have been able to do.

I also have an essay (for those of you who have seen the movie 'Valkyrie', or are aware who Colonel Stauffenberg was) that I wrote in argument of whether or not Stauffenberg could be considered an heroic figure for his actions in 1944. I know it may not interest some of you as it is an academic production, but if you are interested, let me know and I might see if I can post it up.

Anyway guys please leave a comment and let me know, I am vastly looking forward to coming back to this and any other personal interests that have been forgotten over the past 12 months.

Cheers guys,

Update and future of the blog

Hi everyone,

I know I am leaving it long and far between posts on this site, but I have been a little preoccupied as a fair few of you know with my major high school exams. As of today I am in fact halfway through those exams, so in just less than 2 weeks I will be out of there and ready to begin whatever comes next. So for those from the coffee shop, I will be back around then to haunt you with my presence once again, so thats whats happening with my contribution to the blogosphere.

Once I return, I will be back to complete my foosball table series, as well as the resumption of my normal discussion posts, and hopefully a few new bits and pieces here and there. As per usual suggestions are always appreciated so if you would like to see anything posted here let me know =].

Finally, I would like to leave you with another video from RSA's 'animate' series, about how educational paradigms are currently being changed. Enjoy, and let us know what you think.
