Some visitors may have noticed a much decreased volume of posts in recent weeks, thanks in part to my preparations for a return to university. I am 24 now so I am going back as a mature student, starting at the end of September in Arts Year 1 in UCC.
My chosen subjects for First Year are Philosophy, Politics, Sociology and Greek and Roman Civilization. Now depending on how much work I will be putting in, blogging may or may not see a rise or fall in volume, but I expect that I will have some spare time with my trusty laptop to do some writing on here.
I intend to do my Degree in Politics and Greek and Roman, with perhaps further study after that. I would also have intentions of visiting Washington next Summer on a J1 Visa, hopefully landing a nice internship at a venerable political thinktank, magazine or some such.
I may also be asking fellow bloggers and readers for help with essays, just helpful stuff, titbits that I might otherwise not have come across in relation to the subject matter of an essay. That is with the cooperation of you all of course, I hope you can offer advice!
And who knows I might get students blogging, there are some blogs already among the faculties in UCC so it can’t be that hard to convince some people of the benefits blogging can give.
