    I am a 28 y/o blogger who has an interest in politics. Mainly here for networking purposes, and I am always willing to go into the trenches on issues as well.


    Sporting a newly acquired Associates degree in Liberal Arts/Social Sciences, I have taken courses in Micro, and Macro throughout my coursework.

    Currently I am pursuing a degree in Journalism and Minoring in Chinese.


    Interests?

    Independent Music
    Martial Arts
    Surfing
    Blogging
    Entrepreneurship
    Friends

    I think punk/hardcore music was the first thing in my life that encouraged me to become a socially conscious individual. It only grew from there.

    Welcome.

    We won't really know much about you until you post in the various forums.
    So get to freelance posting. Unless you're just here to promote your blog.

    A person with a physicist degree looks at the universe and wonders what it all is.
    A person with an engineering degree looks at the universe and wonders what he can make with it.
    A person with a liberal arts degree looks at them and wonders if they want fries with that.


    :D

    My purpose for taking Liberal Arts was to simply collect basic skill-sets and to identify my strengths and basically improve upon the areas that I was weak, and to get as many intro classes out of the way as possible.

    Yeab, first off, welcome. I get the Liberal Arts class absolutely. And you did it for the right reason. I too am a fledgling writer, rantista and bombast promoter. I like to write short stories and at present my first novel sits forlornly gathering dust on a shelf. I wouldn't call it writers block because I have yet to write anything of any importance but more stuck in the mud and morass of uncertainty of how to finish up this little opus of mine. In short, I have no ending. But that didn't stop me from getting 8 chapters in on the second book. (only a writer gets that, we are a craven, attention-seeking, praise-needy complicated lot)
    Anyway, I hope you aren't just promoting a blog and intend to stick around. I'd like to see what you've got.
