I know, Its about time (University, Easter and 22 years on)

So I have had another period of virtual inactivity here, but I do engage with the blogging community, so that’s largely my contribution to the blogging world these days.

To those guys who have followed my blog recently, thanks a lot – it is always nice to have people show an interest in what I’m doing. It helps to reproduce my own sense of pseudo-worth and feed my own false sense of digital authority. So once again, thank you. Lfcloads.blogspot has been up for over a year now, and I honestly did not expect anywhere near this type of longevity.

Anyway, I really should start saying what has been happening. So I’m just about to start my third month of university here in Sydney and so far I have enjoyed every moment of it. I mean why wouldn’t you when you get to walk past a building like this every day:

So I’m studying Political, Economic and Social Sciences at Sydney University, and so far the worst part about it has been telling people what I’m actually doing. I mean why can’t I just be doing something like medicine, law, or arts - So much easier to explain. Plus there’s the subjects, which right now include Government & International Relations (World Politics), Political Economy, Sociology and Psychology. I guess we’ll just have to see where it all takes me.

In other news, I’d like to wish everybody a happy Easter (probably belated in most parts of the world). Here in Sydney we had a great day, roast lunch with family and enjoyed the company of friends to end it. Unfortunately now it’s time to hit the books and try and get these essays done while I still have time.

And recently, it was the 22nd anniversary of the Hillsborough stadium disaster. If you don't know much about it, check out the post I did to commemorate reaching 96 followers back when:

As part of the remembrance, the Liverpool FC website published 96 responses to a question, and I was lucky enough to be published as the 85th response. There I am right after former British PM Gordon Brown:

Anyway guys, it has been a pleasure once again. I hope to see you guys around here a bit more in the next few weeks/months/whatever. Hope the world is treating you well, and I'll catch you all on the dark side.

Cheers, Loads
