I LOST THAT BAKERY JOB...

LOOK.

I know you guys are expecting some more artistic blog posts, and don't you worry, I'm writing one right now on why I FUCKING HATE NEWSLETTERS...

(I'll link it when it's finished. Right... here.)

But for now, just a quick update on my life in general in the last four weeks:

MORE RIBBON... FINALLY.

I should think that it's quite abundantly clear that this blog isn't my primary function these days. It used to be, back when it was on Wordpress... but that was a few years ago.

THE LEAPING LEOPARD: SOMALILAND...ISH

NOTE: this is a copy of the article that I submitted for review by the Oxford Society of International Relations in 2016. Interesting anecdote: I wrote the majority of this on the top bunk in the billets at Camp Murray while in training for a new roof-mounted humvee weapons system called the CROWS.

When I was given the opportunity to submit a draft for SIR on the particular region in the Northeastern corner of the boomerang that you call “Somalia” – the region itself is called “Somaliland”, and we’ll touch upon why I just called it a “region” and not a “country” just then – I was hesitant.
