I’ve awoken from my study-induced coma, and I’m ready to get back into the writing world. I’ve still got three exams in exam block, but I’ve finally finished all my assignments and presentations!
It’s been a pretty hectic few weeks, but admittedly I did learn some interesting (but somewhat useless) things, both through researching assignments and getting side-tracked while researching:
- 49% of people have Type O blood.
- Mongolia doesn’t have a navy. (Kind of obvious, but it’s
something I’ve never thought about. Living on an over-sized island, it’s
strange to think that not every country have a navy.)
- People are generally motivated by personal gain. Men are
more likely to be motivated by “social rewards”.
- The Library of Alexandria in Egypt (one of the largest
collections of knowledge in the ancient world) was partially burnt down by
- In 2010, the US spent over 700 billion dollars on its military, making it the top military spender
in the world. The second largest spender was China, which only spent 143
- Way too many things about World War I to list.
Look at that, you've learnt something new!
Anyway, although I wasn’t able to physically write a blog post, I’ve been thinking about blog posts, so I’ve got some good things coming up in June. On Monday, I’ll be reviewing my May progress for Project 2012, and I’m finally going to post my review on the Amazon Kindle. Plus, I’ve got some very, very, very big news! (Is the suspense killing you? I hope it is! (Well, not literally, of course. That would be awkward. Plus I’d have no blog readers left.).) Stay tuned!
For the comments now, let me know how you’ve been! What have you been up to lately? Any big news of your own?
